Refers to RACCOONS, nothing at all racist about it. They pick up anything and everything, turn it over and over, looking at it , trying to decide whether to wash it or eat it, or both.
Holly, put that down, get over here, and stop coonfingering everything.

To pick up an item that is not yours and look at it or examine it. Possibly to handle and examine an item without thinking of buying it. This word maybe a racist word. I don't know. But the word "coon" is a racist word meaning African-American people. I don't know if coonfinger refers to African-Americans in any sort of way.
I make about $34,000 a year. Me and my friend went into a Watch store. We could't afford any of the $50,000 watches, so we decided to coonfinger the watches just for fun.
