6. Definition of "folks". I'm not his folks, quit calling me that.

1. a. The common people of a society or region considered as the representatives of a traditional way of life and especially as the originators or carriers of the customs, beliefs, and arts that make up a distinctive culture: a leader who came from the folk.
b. Archaic. A nation; a people.

2. Informal. People in general. Often used in the plural: Folks around here are very friendly.

3. People of a specified group or kind. Often used in the plural: city folks; rich folk.

4. folks Informal.
a. The members of one's family or childhood household; one's relatives.
b. One's parents: My folks are coming for a visit.

adj. Of, occurring in, or originating among the common people: folk culture; a folk hero.

just folks Informal
Down-to-earth, open-hearted.

Any way you look at it, I am not his "folks" and am really tired of hearing this doofusy phrase. It does not sound down to earth or open-hearted, just stooopid. Hey Mr.bush, you are supposed to show leadership qualities.
