IAmNotADictionary Word Of The Day: Coon
IAmNotADictionary Word Of The Day: Coon – 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 where black people:
-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
-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)
