I only remember it cos I asked my Dad what it meant
and since he was in the police at the time, he went off on a massive rant about positive discrimination etc etc

a friend of mine during his best man speech for his black bandmate made a joke about how he was the token black member of the band
amazingly the predominantly black audience didn't collapse into fits of laughter
