A coon is a black actor or actress, who takes roles that stereotypically portrays black people. They think theyve made it but they are slaves to the same images. A.k.a sellout
It comes from the term baracoons (a cage), where they used to place Africans, who were waiting to be sent to America to be slaves. They had no idea of this, so some of them were even eager waiting in the baracoons.

Examples- Roles or advertisements were black people:
-play basketball
-rap about a product
-are obsessed with money or chicken
-have a lot of video hoes
-have names that show that they are black (kwame, darnel, any two capital letters (JT, TJ, AJ, TC, JJ), any female name ending in a "qua",

excessively use old terms we made up like
-woo wee
-bling bling
-im da man, you da man
-thats wack yo
-or anyterm that white people have begun to acknowledge, use and accept.
-(I hope you get the idea- this happens everyday)
Black guy on commercial or in movie: Woo wee! Boy do I love me some chicken, where da Koolaid at?

Person watching: What a coon!

A black woman and her son board a plane which is full of 'KKK' members. The pilot, being a 'Klansman' himself, realises this and, after the flight has taken off, he says over the P.A.,"to avoid an emergency, we must shed some weight. Unfortunately, someone will have to jump from the plane. To save any problems, we'll go in alphabetical order. A is for 'African Americans.'"

The woman and her child don't move.

"B is for 'Blacks.'"

They still don't move.

"C is for 'coons.'"

They still don't get up.

The little boy turns to his mother and says, "Mum, why didn't we get up, all of those names describe us."

His mother replied, "it's okay, son, 'K' comes before 'N'. We're 'Niggers' today."

Derogatory term for black people. Similar to "nigger." Originally a shortened form of the word "raccoon," used in reference to the animal. The black eye masks and noctural habits of the animal paralleled the characteristics of typical robbers and thiefs. The stereotype was then applied to black people.
