Calpurnia=Token


I think that Calpurnia and Token from South Park play oddly similar roles in their respective towns. Calpurnia is a well-spoken, godly, nice, lady-like person, but she still gets stereotyped like all the other blacks. Token is the child of the only black family in South Park, and even though they are richer and more mannerly than the whites in town, they still are given black stereotypes, such as everyone assuming Token knows how to play the bass.

In some ways agree with you connection between the two. I don’t think that there are many similarities in there life styles. Actually the only big thing they have in common is being “African American”. I would have worked a little harder if I was you and put more thought into it instead of just thinking of the first black cartoon that came to mind.
