The black Harlem resident known only as "Little Bob" appeared in one panel in Captain America (vol. 1) #152.
Little Bob and a friend were eating in a diner on a small side-street just off Amsterdam Avenue. Their meal was interrupted when the Harlem-based super-hero known as the Falcon entered the establishment and demanded information from Boss Morgan. Morgan's henchmen Billie and Reno tried to beat up Falcon, but he made short work of them. Then the Falcon forcefully demanded information from Boss Morgan. (Falcon was following leads to try to track down the whereabouts of his abducted friend, SHIELD agent Sharon Carter.)
All of the other patrons in the crowded diner watched these events, including Little Bob.
When it was over, Little Bob said approvingly to his friend: "Y'know, that Falcon ain't at all like they say he is--"
Little Bob's friend replied: "You got it, Little Bob. Tha's one heavy Tom."
What is meant by this exchange is that word on the street in Harlem was that the Falcon was an "Uncle Tom," a sell-out to the White Establishment. What Little Bob saw in the diner made him believe that the Falcon was a "real black man," and maybe not just an "Uncle Tom" like he had heard.
