For those of you who don't know about the token Negro, let me tell you what it means: the token Negro is the one Black person they put in a TV show or other media, shows like "90210"and magazines like "Girl's Life", so we can't call them racist. The token Negro also gets less air time in some cases. This happens so often that a lot of us are use to it, but this just makes me so angry! Then there are the shows with absolutely no Blacks at all in the main cast, and it's sad how many Blacks are disappearing out of media today, and sad how it is up to us to make our own TV shows so that we can get a descent more than 20 second appearance on television, and it is up to our magazines to have more than five Black models. And it's funny how White people that do the dumbest things, like this guy, can get their own television shows, movies, endorsements, and camera time, while us Blacks barely ever get more than a few seconds of fame for doing something good. Actually, the only time that Black people really get their chance to shine is when we're about to get arrested. Sad face. I just wished that the younger Black kids could see other girls or boys like them doing something right for a change, but now I guess since the mainstream is not buying, we will have to fend for ourselves here in America.
