Have you ever been in the position of being the "model negro"? If so how did you respond?

Recent discussions about Clarence Thomas and Juan Williams inspired this thread.

It may be that many of us who work in majority non-black settings sometime find ourselves in awkward positions. Say for example that a conversation with a white co-worker turns to hip hop and, based on that, the co-worker goes on to make over-generalized stereotypical comments about black people. They figure it's ok to say it to you because you're "not like those people". You're "articulate". You're the "model negro".


Note: I wasn't sure exactly where to post this. So I put it here. MBM feel free to move it.
