 n.— «The current king of comedy is only too aware that his reign is painfully temporary. Farley goes on to write about “the HNIC—the Head Negro in Charge,” a term coined by observant black Americans describing white-dominated pop culture’s tendency to honor one—but only one—black entertainer in a given field.» —“He’s Dave Chappelle, And He Likes Mental Clarity” by Rachel Campbell The Rachel Show May 16, 2005.
