I saw that In Living Color (1991-3)dissed Byron Allen, along with Bryant Gumble, for being a "sell-out." In their "Tom and Tom" skit, the Toms become the first Blacks accepted to an all-white country club.
One Tom says it's the happiest day of his life since he won the Bryant Gumble look-alike contest. The other Tom says it's the happiest day of his life since he won the Byron Allen look-alike contest.
What's the deal with Byron Allen? What was the word on the street in the early 90's? 220.127.116.11 23:23, 28 January 2006 (UTC)
Not much different than it is now, except he was maybe slightly better known. Living Color was just making fun of them for being very "white" Black people.18.104.22.168 (talk) —Preceding undated comment added 14:11, 2 June 2009 (UTC).
