Coonery - Filmmaker Spike Lee recently shed a national spot light on the word by charging fellow film maker Tyler Perry with coonery promotion through some of the characters Perry has created in his plays and films. The Urban dictionary defines Coonery as a verb derived from the word coon. A coon was/is a person of African decent whose sole purpose was/is to entertain white people. These 'coons' started out as wearing black face, characterized by having big eyes and painting big red lips on their face. These people would tap dance, play instruments and sing. Modern day coons are blacks who play stereotypical roles and black entertainers that promote ignorance. Coonery is extremely prevalent and in a lot of cases subconsciously embraced by a lot of blacks. Cooning is without argument a behavior , if continued to run amuck, will ultimately be one of the main reasons the black community has a whole will be ostracized from all things seriously, political, social, and financial. Yes, cooning is that serious, and on this show GeoGee & Nakisha examined just how severe modern day cooning is.
