A fictional possession meaning that you are black in the sense of style, attitude, pride in the black race, etc.
Basically to keep it real when you are black.
But it can be considered revoked if you do otherwise. For example be black, but a Goth or Punk (musical sense)
It's a common joke that then it is revoked, to turn it in at the nearest liquor sto on Martin Luther King blvd, and turn it in. Also you can do so at Roscoes Chicken & Waffles...
Shaniqua went to a Marilyn Manson concert! She even wears all those chains and leather straps and stuff...
Man, her 'black pass' is REVOKED!
The fallout from white guilt where most of society allows black people to get away with things that other races would not be allowed to get away with. This could refer to domestic abuse, disorderly conduct, abuse of handicap parking stalls, or other such offenses.
If Chris Brown were a white man, he would have gone to jail for attempted murder for what he did to Rihanna, but since he's black, he gets a black pass.
If me and my friends were screaming and yelling on the bus, we would have been kicked off, but those black guys can do what they want because they have a black pass.
"Black Pass" actually a combination of two words. Black, and Pass
Black - a color, actually all colors combined.
Pass- a type of permit.
Black Pass - A dark permit.
An allowance of all things colored?
I don't know.. The example shall speak for itself.
As a result of the controversy, Timberlake and Jackson were banned from the 2004 Grammy Awards unless they agreed to apologize on screen at the event. Jackson, who already gave a public appology declined to issue a second one. Timberlake attended and issued a scripted apology while accepting the first of two Grammy Awards he received that night (Best Pop Vocal Album for Justified and Best Male Pop Vocal Performance for "Cry Me A River"),causing some from the Black entertainment community to label him a "punk" and"sell out" and call for his "Black Pass" to be revoked2.
