A coon is a black actor or actress , who takes roles that stereotypically portrays black people. They think they've 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
AND LADIES, WOULD YOU DATE A MAN THAT WAS A 'COON"/SELLOUT?
