A minority that was deliberately put on a show or movie for the sake of being culturally diverse. They get few lines so less mistakes are made and few to no flaws. Tokens are written for specially because everyone knows people who look different MUST act different.
We get this predictable bullshit all because of those few assholes who keep a phone next to the TV when they watch it and have their lawyer on speed-dial.
A (usually black) person in a television programme who is there simply to please people of his or her particular ethnicity.
The family who have just moved into Wisteria Lane in 'Desperate Housewives' are token black people introduced by the makers to avoid complaints from people that they are (rightfully) representing upper class Americans as white.
A sexy lone black guy in a group of white people soldiering on on his own representing his skin. He often recieves various remarks and comments about this but he simply thinks fuck em because his penis is extremely large and bigger then everyone else. A good example is Taylor Morrison found at Essex University
White Guy: Hey buddy! Ur the only black guy in this club haha!
Token Black Guy: Dont make me stab you
