Tall Awkward Black

Typically refers to a female African American with multiple strands of bead braided hair, jeans above the belly button, and a general look of confusion. The Tab is a gentle, reclusive creature in nature and can be found all over the USA. They are usually writing/drawing in a spiral ring binder with mythical creature designs on the front however, one of these binders has never been found leaving the contents a mystery. Often teased as children, Tabs overcome this and are generally the kindest people you'll ever meet. Tabs generally end up as the nice lunch lady or janitor at your local elementary school. They have been spotted on college campuses as in the following example.

Mary: It's not her fault, she's just a T.A.B.
