Over time, different minority groups have been discriminated against and portrayed in the media in a demeaning and sometimes even in a demonizing fashion. For this reason, people in the entertainment industry are eager to show that minorities are not bad people (and can even be important) as well as appeal to every possible demographic. So the lead, who happens to be [[WhiteMaleLead white and male]]. If the lead is not white and male, then he (or she) will definitely be in the majority where the MagicalMinorityPerson they are nicely given is, well, [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin in the minority]]. Despite being marginalized, though, the MagicalMinorityPerson is always there [[WisdomFromTheGutter to share their wisdom with]] their privileged friend, show him (or her) the way, teach him (or her) a lesson about tolerance if he (or she) happens to be a bigot, and solve all of his (or her) problems.
