Quotes: Token Minority
"True dat ya'll indeed, inevitable black gang member!"
Yamagata, The American Akira

"You people are disgusting! You don't care about real diversity. This is nothing but...but tokenism!"
Black Panthernote , Wha...Huh?

"I'm the only one here who's not white!"

Chill Factor is another example of [Cuba] Gooding being cast in the role of token black sidekick. You know, the gratingly annoying kind of sidekick complete with stock phrases like “Aw hell nah!” and almost racially offensive overtones. I don’t want to dig too deep into motivations, but it is a little sad that a movie capitalizing on Cuba’s success sees him not as the hero of the movie, but the wisecracking shrill comic relief.
Miles Antwiler' on Chill Factor (1999)
