Words For Warfare

"Black women are going to have to take more leadership. I think we are prepared because we bring a tenaciousness with us. We do not fear losing friends, allies, or jobs." - Maxine Waters

Maxine Waters is a disgrace to Black people. She is a supporter of Hillary race-baiting Clinton and as such has lost any respect I had for her. She is a coon.

Sorry Black American Princess, I can't agree with your comments. Maxine Waters has been in the game a long time and done a lot of good work. She has every right to support the candidate of her choice and that does not make her "coon."

Black people don't have to agree on everything. I was greatly disappointed by Ms. Waters recent involvement with BET, but that doesn't wipe out all the good work she had done in her career. Being a native Californian, I know the work she had done.

I respect you and your blog immensely Professor Tracey. I guess we have to agree to disagree on Ms. Waters. The fact that she supports BET, a network that objectifies, maligns, and degrades Black women notwithstanding, I do not understand how she can throw her support behind Hillary Clinton, a woman who will stoop to racist tactics, thereby ENSURING we will have a President McCain. She is a coon to me.

coon??? you from the south bap?
not many black people use that word to desribe black people (not here where i live)--unless they are actually going raccoon hunting. or do not know the history of the word and are using it as slang thinking it's hip--again a big mistake.
whites used it when they would kidnap a black person and take them into the woods to hunt them for sport--hence they used secret meanings--coon for black man/woman/child.
they would drag them into the woods- set them free, then drunk as they would be chase the black person through the woods and shoot at him/her till they either killed or wounded them or the person got away-which was not often.

then they would come back to the other whites and laugh about it and have a good ole time.

when black people hunt coon--they are truely hunting raccoon--not people.

maxine waters may be a lot of "things"--but i do not think of her as a coon--in fact i would not call any black person that--now i will call one an
'uncle tom' --but not some rodent animal.

"Coon" and "sellout" are synonymous to me, hence my use of the term in reference to Ms. Waters. For her to spend most of her political career fighting for black people, black women in particular, it's unfathomable to me that she would turn around and support BET and Hillary Clinton.

Coon may not be a term you use but it's one I use to describe people who sell their own people out.
