Token Black, formerly known as Token Williams, is a male fourth grader at South Park Elementary. His name is a play on words referring to the politically-correct idea of the "token black guy" commonly featured on American television shows.
Token wears a light purple Armani Exchange shirt with a letter "T" in light orange and a pair of dark gray pants. He is African American and has dark brown skin. He has short black hair.
Token is usually level headed, calm and rational. He has also been shown to be highly intelligent. However, this has caused Cartman to label him "a smartass."
He has a strong willingness to stand up for himself and his rights; in "With Apologies to Jesse Jackson", he was obviously incredibly upset by Stan's dad Randy saying the N word on Wheel of Fortune, and did not forgive Stan until the latter admitted that he would never be able to understand the connotations of the word.
He was also annoyed by Cartman's constant racial stereotyping in "Christian Rock Hard", but managed to contain his frustrations and continued to work with him. However, he eventually lost his temper with Cartman, physically assaulting him for saying "Fuck Jesus!" in front of a huge crowd of Christian fans.
In "Here Comes the Neighborhood" he took the other kids' teasing personally, causing him to feel like an outcast and not part of the group, possibly indicating that he is sensitive to social criticism.
In the episode "Free Willzyx", he helped Kyle and the other boys save a whale, revealing a compassionate attitude.
