South Africa has a new sitcom called “The Coconuts“.
So, why “coconuts”?
“Coconut” is an urban slang term used to describe black people who act “white” – it literally means black on the outside and white on the inside. However, the Coconuts, in the case of this sitcom, are not ‘white-acting’ black people, but a family of white people – the Greenes – who become trapped in black bodies thanks to offending an old man and some ancestors of the little known Zulotho tribe of South Africa.
History in the making, people.
