Ooga Booga Where Da White Women At is a phrase typically used to caption images of black men, arising from the stereotype that black males are naturally inclined to desire sexual relations with white women.
The origin of the term "Ooga Booga" is uncertain. Entries on Urban Dictionary offer several interpretations of its meaning, with the most popular definition suggesting that it is slang for Ebonics, a term referring to a variant of the English language unique to the African-American community.
The term also has tribal connotations, as demonstrated by one of its first uses in modern popular culture as a sound clip in Crash Bandicoot (shown below).
The term "where the white women at?" comes from the 1974 Western comedy film Blazing Saddles, spoken by the character Bart, played by Cleavon Little (shown below).
The term "Ooga Booga" saw a sharp increase in search interest in early 2013 due to the release of the movie of the same name. A cartoon with the phrase "Ooga Booga Git Da Money", likely originating on 4chan and featuring the Happy Merchant exploitable, has become a popular variant of the meme (shown below).
