    Doc Beezy, an answer to your PM is a lengthy one, and I will hit you with it. It just requires a lot of soul searching.

    I dunno A***....I ain't hardly black, but "coon" has to be one of the most offensive, old timey, sheet-wearin', cross burnin' epithets held dear by the Strom Thurmond crowd...

    Oh no, I totally agree, but I'm thinking along the lines of how nigger became nigga and went from duragatory slur to a term of endearment.

    No.

  • The only place I know this term is from one of the tracks on HUSTLERS CONVENTION. Can't say if this girl should have been saying it on the radio or not though.




  • my ace boon coon = my nigga

    you see i understand that... but is that where the context really began? maybe i was just raised up differently but i was always just under the impression that it was negative from the start... then again im white and mexican... who the fuck am i to question that shit.

    Nah, it's cool. You should question shit. Just because you aren't black doesn't mean you don't have the right to try and be edjumacated on such things. Maybe coon is the next term of endearment but I doubt it. We're all in the same race, the human race. Ethnic slurs aren't too cool in my book, but what do I know. I'm Mexican, too.

    I was ignoring it for a while, but I couldn't hold out any longer.

    Coon is, ace boon coon is as said. People use it still, my ex-girlfriend even used to say it. It turns up in rap from time to time (ex. Ice-T)... or the shortened version, when people say "My Ace".

    Otherwise I think it's throwback... like something your grandparents would've said.

    apparently it's accepted in the urban dictionary...not that i agree with it.


  • I was just paid a visit from a very cool japanese dealer who runs a shop called Boon Coon records.He had good taste.

    Maybe in records, but not in store names.

    Why wouldn't it be accepted?

    poor choice of words on my part. i don't agree with the term. just my $.02

    i know why it was accepted in the dictionary, i just meant i'm not into the term personally.

    I was stationed at Clark Air Force Base in 1961-62. When soldiers who were liked by the Philippine people were given a farewell party  in downtown Angeles(the town outside the base) they were celebrated as being A number one Ace Boon Coons, a term of endearment. It is the only place I have heard this term used. As an African-American man I didn't find the term offensive. All these many years later, I still don't.
