A coon is basically a sellout in the African American community.

Or a better defintion is when you are of the race your talking done upon.

Coon is an abbreviated term for racoon, majorly derived from the word 'coonhound'. Coons are small nocturnal carnivores (Procyon lotor) of North America that are chiefly grey, they have black masks and bushy ringed tails. They live chiefly in trees, and have a varied diet including small animals, fruits, and nuts.

This is often perceived as a derogatory term for black people, however, the word is completely innocent as long as you are talking about the small, furry animal.
I haven't heard that in a coon's age.

A term used to discriminate black people in the earlier centuries by white people to put them down similiar to nigger.

I'm the late 2000s however, the premise of the term changed. More ethnicities started using it to call other ethnicities who put down their own communities in order to favour Themselves or other ethnicities who do the same. Similiar to the "Uncle Tom".
Sheriff David Clarke: "These BLM Protesters are terrorists and deserve to go to jail."

People: "I can't believe they let this coon run things at the station.. it's almost like he doesn't even know his own skin colour."
