** Kellogg "[[IncrediblyLamePun Cornflake]]" Lieberbaum functioned as this in the first two series, being Will's only recurring friend at the school. ** Occasionally Will would have a white friend at school. Most didn't last long as characters. However, one of Will's aunts got involved with a [[DiscriminateAndSwitch tall]] man, who would eventually become so accepted by the family that he and Will would make jokes about ''Carlton'' being the token white member of the group. ** Lampshaded in one episode at a ski resort when one of Vivian's sisters complains that they (the family) are the only black people they see there. Her white husband remarks, "Don't be silly. Everywhere I turn, I see another black person", after which she almost falls down laughing.
