* ''Anime/CrossAnge'': In a world where mages are commoners, every muggle is treated ''worse'' than a witch; not only are muggles forced to a deserted island where they secretly fight an invasion force of alien dragons in highly unstable cool mecha with a disturbingly high death rate, but the friends and family who actually cared for them slowly erode in opinion until it's as if they hated their muggle companion all along. Including ''Ange's beloved little sister'' Slyphia. (In her possible defense it might have been [[CorruptTheCutie her older brother Julio]] convincing her Ange was to blame for the death of their parents.) Muggles are treated like devil spawn even if their behavior doesn't change or they show exceptional merit and mercy. [[spoiler:Though this is only partly their fault: it's revealed near the end that the mana they use is like meth, only it makes them obedient to an abusive thousand-year-old pervert]]. In response to this, said muggles have no qualms with opening fire on civilians for their past torments (said civilians usually shown having guns, and planning to use them first), but show mercy to traitors in their ranks for harsher war crimes.

Added DiffLines:

* In ''Film/TwelveAngryMen'', Juror #10 is one of the last holdouts for a guilty verdict. As time goes on it becomes clearer and clearer that he doesn't care about the evidence; the kid is guilty because "there's not a one of them that's any good" (referring to the Latino defendant). The 1997 version is far more explicit in this regard: Juror 10 delivers an angry rant about how "those spics stay high on dope and fight all the time" and "these wetbacks are multiplying like rabbits." He's not at all concerned about guilt or innocence, he's just wants to "get him before his kind gets us."

* ''Series/{{Smallville}}'': Jonathan Kent is firmly convinced that ''all'' Kryptonians are evil by nature. When Martha points out that [[InterspeciesAdoption their son]] is a Kryptonian himself, Jonathan simply replies that Clark is the exception because he was {{raised by humans}}.

Added DiffLines:

* Growing up as an orphan, Fuka from ''Anime/VividStrike'' has developed a strong distaste for rich people. While this generally applies to anyone who looks down on her because of her poor background, she specifically dislikes rich people for being the ones to change [[ChildhoodFriend Rinne's]] personality after they adopted her. She slowly starts to get better through interacting with Team Nakajima, but she was still hostile at first after realizing they went to a "rich girls' school."
--> '''Fuka''': I don't think you rich girls understand how us commoners struggle to live each day.

* ''MadMagazine'' used to run a recurring feature called ''You can't win with a bigot'' which alternated examples of bigots contradicting themselves in ways that ensured their interpretation of events always conformed to their prejudices.

Bob knows that Alice is stupid: She's a woman, and women are stupid - never mind that Alice has a [=PhD=] and an IQ of 150, she's still a woman... and women are stupid, thus Alice is stupid. If Bob finally accepts that Alice is indeed smart, he might resort to [[NoTrueScotsman claiming that she is not "really" a woman]]. Bonus points if Bob uses Alice [[LogicBomb not being stupid as an example of the principle that women are stupid]] - either because [[NoTrueScotsman she's too smart to be a real woman,]] or as [[InsaneTrollLogic "the exception that verifies the rule".]] Also bonus points if "Alice" isn't even a woman, and Bob [[StrawAffiliation simply assumed a neutral Internet nickname to be female because he thinks the person is stupid]]. Alternatively, Alice actually does something stupid one single time - and Bob draws the conclusion that she is (and all other women are) ''always'' stupid.

** In general mages are looked down upon [[FantasticRacism even more than in the rest of Thedas]], being treated essentially as animals that need to be leashed like mad dogs. If a Mage Hawke in ''VideoGame/DragonAgeII'' manages to win their respect then clearly they're not a mage, they're just a perfectly ordinary person who happens to have innate magical powers.

** If a female Warden recruits Sten in ''VideoGame/DragonAgeOrigins'', a conversation will eventually ensue where he states that he doesn't believe you're a woman, because Qunari women cannot be warriors. Despite the deep cultural divide, you can eventually make him respect the Warden as a warrior. In ''VideoGame/DragonAgeInquisition'' The Iron Bull states that even though he's lived among non-Qunari long enough that the culture shock is less severe than Sten's he still mentally categorizes female fighters like Cassandra as men in his mind. He also states that Qunari women ''can'' in fact be warriors if the show particular talent in that area -- they just [[LoopholeAbuse get treated like men]] for all intents and purposes.
