The abreviation APBP can stand either for "All Purpose Brown People" or "All Purpose Brown Person," and is defined as a person, often an actor, passed off as being a member of a certain ethnicity (which they actually are not a member of) solely on account of their having a similar skin tone.
One notable example of the use of an APBP is Antonio Banderas's portrayal of an Arab man in the movie The Thirteenth Warrior whereas Banderas is obviously Hispanic.
