The Lyrics

Last night I saw they had added
An ethnic character to the show
But he wasn't given very much screentime
He wasn't given much of a role

Cos if there's one black guy in a cop show
There'll be ten white guys for him
It re-enforces dominant binaries
and it's very, very, patronising!

Too many token parts in the world
There's too little screentime for minorities
Too many token parts in the world
There's no way, that this is equality!!!

The world is full of liberal people
Who work in the TV industry
They make very clumsy attempts
To reflect our racial diversity

So we say, though you may be well meaning
These token parts don't help anyone
Being cast just for your race is demeaning
with negative results in the long run!

Too many token parts in the world
There's too little screentime for minorities
Too many token parts in the world
There's no way, that this is equality!!!
