When a black person, usually an entertainer or celebrity of some sort, finally realizes that mainstream (white) media will never see them as anything but black and that as soon as it finds a way to rob them of the recognition that they deserve, it will exploit it to the fullest.

A black person who finally understands that we do not live in a post-racial society, usually by experiencing the effects of covert and overt racism first hand.

Something that eventually happens to a new black.
Beyonce finally got her Negro Wake Up Call when she got thrown into the "Urban Contemporary" category at the Grammy's.
