* JimCarrey and Kelly Coffield were the token whites for ''InLivingColor''. Carrey at least earned an audition for being Damon Wayans' friend rather than simply the need for a white castmember.

Added DiffLines:

* Oddly enough, the title character of ''Series/MarcoPolo'' largely acts as one, with a common complaint being that he plays very little role in the story and seems to only exist because the execs were skittish about having an all-Asian cast.

* ''Series/TheFreshPrinceOfBelAir'' did this occasionally with Will's goofy white classmates/friends, but even these eventually disappeared and were replaced with black BeavisAndButthead style sidekicks, only one of which had any staying power. For the first half or so of the series, there was also the hopelessly out-of-touch white teacher. Later, one of his aunts became involved with a white man... who eventually became so accepted by the family that he could make jokes about ''Carlton'' being white.
