Roke like Okra

Posted by Roseanne on October 21, 2005

My African American friends at work use a phrase which is something like "Roke like Okra". They are unsure of the meaning, except that it may mean something like "I'm going to beat you senseless" but they cannot come up with any true meaning. Can you tell me what it might mean and where it originated? Could it be an old slave saying or something along those lines?
