Guy 2: You people!? What do you mean "you people!?" Are you racist!?
Guy 1: I'm talking about your danged family not your danged race, you buffoon!
Guy 2: Coon?! Did you just call me a coon!?
While the phrase has long been used as an interpersonal generalization, it has become known as a racial epithet targeted to blacks only recently. The earliest documentation of this meaning that I can find is from 1992, when presidential candidate Ross Perot was chided for telling an NAACP audience about financial hardships befalling "your people."
"When he said 'you people' or 'your people,' it was like waving a red flag in front of a bull," he said. "It's something white folks have used when they don't want to call you nigger, but they don't want to treat you like an equal."
