Coined in Scott Westerfeld's book, So Yesterday, the Missing Black Woman Formation (sometimes called MBWF) is when, in popular media, there is a Caucasian female, a Caucasian male and one African American male together in a group. Together, they are meant to represent all walks of cultural identity, and at that effort, they fail.

It is usually used in a negative context.
The Matrix totally had a case of the Missing Black Woman Formation.
