Jump to: navigation, search

The "Magical Negro" is a stereotype in mainstream entertainment mass media, portrayed as a supporting character with special insights or mystical powers, and who is consulted or comes to the aid of White protagonist(s).

Despite the depictions being very positive, with the "Magical Negro" often having more wisdom, morals, and power than the Whites, it is in politically correct circles actually viewed as an example of White racism. It is claimed that there are similarities with earlier stereotypes, such as of Black slaves voluntarily helping Whites or the "noble savage".
