A nonwhite protagonist who saves the day not by becoming better at everything than the native people as in Mighty Whitey, but through the power of jive, dancing, and a laid back attitude, thus managing to still be racist. It's generally a comedy staple rather than action and drama like its predecessor. It's described more fully on this trope naming Cracked article here, at number three.

Compare Mighty Whitey, to which this is the ethnic pastiche. Related to Magical Negro only by the typical skin color of the character.
