In American history, minstrel shows were a form of entertainment that featured white performers in blackface. Generally, the performances were disparaging to black people, and the actors conformed to negative stereotypes associated with black Americans. Minstrel shows began in America sometime in the 1830's and continued to be performed in some parts of the U.S. until the 1950's.
In the "lost episodes" of Chappelle's Show, a pixie appears in some sketches as a minstrel in blackface, exhorting various black individuals to behave stereotypically. A notable example is when the "stereotype pixie" encourages Chappelle to order the fried chicken for his in-flight meal on a plane.
