'''The Turkish minority in Germany'''

Germany's largest minority since about the 50s are Turkish immigrants. While they brought various interesting and popular foods with them (the doner kebab wrapped to eat it while walking was actually invented by a Turk in Berlin), that is also mostly seen as their only contribution. A couple popular Turks made it into high military positions and are respected, while others made it on television. The latter typically portray themselves as whatever kind of doofus works best, and are usually reviled for it by other Turk-descended German citizens.

* Turkish people on TV outside of comedy tend to be portrayed as hard-working types (but often need clear directions if their German is bad, implying they are a bit dimwitted), sometimes overdoing it even for the ethnic Germans, who tell them to slow down a little. Considering the usual German attitude to work, that quite says something.

Whites, being the vast majority of Americans, are the group that are supposedly the least discriminated against, but actually there is quite a lot (the way white people are portrayed or mocked would cause outrage if done to other ethnic groups). This is more true of white males.

Whites, being the vast majority of Americans, Americans for now, are the group that are supposedly the least discriminated against, but actually there is quite a lot (the way white people are portrayed or mocked would cause outrage if done to other ethnic groups).lot, albeit tame in nature. This is more true of white males.

* Unless they'e actual dwarfs (like ''Series/BostonLegal'''s Meredith Eaton) women - being generally shorter than men anyway - are usually safe from this. But as Creator/HaydenPanettiere can attest, there ''are'' exceptions.
** Creator/KristenBell, Music/KylieMinogue, Creator/KristinChenoweth and women whose names don't begin with the letter K are others who've been known to be the subject of comments/jokes about their height, or lack thereof.

* Subverted in ''Series/{{JAG}}'' where main character Sarah Mackenzie is stated to be of Persian descent and speaks Farsi. The actress who plays her (Catherine Bell) is half-Iranian herself.

'''AsianAmericans'''

[[AC:{{RealLife}}]]
* Not only has any evidence of Asian-American activism, such as that of Yuri Kochiyama or Steven Kiyosi Kuromiya, been scrubbed from public knowledge along with instances of discrimination against Asian Americans, such as the Chinese Massacre of 1871, or that Asians were racially targeted for denial of entry until the 1960s, Internment only recently being acknowledged thanks to GeorgeTakei being a internet sensation, but the white power rape fantasy against Asians immortalized in such works as MadameButterfly or DavidBowie 's revenge song "China Girl," originally written because a Vietnamese woman declined to sleep with him, (later he would make excuses for the song) is SO common among Millennials, they consider wanting to (sexually) subjugate people for their race a normal phase of youth. On top of all of this, Japanese Americans also had their culture legislatively stripped from them in Internment, and along with any other American-born-and-raised citizen whose ancestral roots are in Asia, are commonly dismissed as foreign non-citizens. Both political left and right embrace racism against Asian Americans.

* One example which can be considered particularly JustForFun/{{egregious}} is that in ''WesternAnimation/DannyPhantom'', where the parents of Samantha Manson are cast as [=WASPs=], despite being [[InformedJudaism Jewish.]]
