* Morgan Spurlock's ''30 Days'' had a few episodes where he tried to live 30 days on: minimum wage, in a medium security prison, and in an [[TheRez indian reservation.]] The rest of the series comprised of having people live within a group they looked down upon, such as: a homophobic GoodOlBoy from the Midwest staying with a resident in [[{{Gayborhood}} Castro Street]]; an Islamophobic Christian man living as a Muslim; [[ImmigrantPatriotism a nativist Cuban immigrant]] from Arizona staying with an illegal immigrant Mexican family in East L.A. Also others who were encouraged to look at the other side of the argument, like: an anti gun activist living with gun entusiast; an avid hunter working with a an animal rights group; an abortion clinic doctor working with a pro-life organization; and several other examples.

* The entire concept behind the Black Bomber, a white racist with the power to transform into a black superhero. The idea was rejected for being too offensive but was eventually recycled in {{Dwayne McDuffie}}'s [[JusticeLeagueOfAmerica JLA]] run in the form of Black Power, a balding, overweight white guy who could transform into a tall, muscular, black superhero.

* It's a well-known fact that {{Superman}}'s pal ComicBook/JimmyOlsen makes a disturbingly attractive woman when he dresses in drag to go undercover. When he does it in UsefulNotes/{{the Silver Age|of Comic Books}}, though, don't be surprised if the [[AnAesop Aesops]] he learns are more along the lines of "it can be exhausting getting hit on constantly" than "the glass ceiling is unfair."

* In a ''Series/SaturdayNightLive'' sketch, Creator/EddieMurphy [[MasterOfDisguise disguised himself]] as a white man (Mr. White). He discovered that white people give each other things. First the newsstand worker encouraged him to just take a newspaper without paying, once a black customer left. When he went to a bank to ask for a loan with no collateral or credit, the black bank worker was ready to refuse him until a white worker excused him and instead offered Mr. White as much money as he liked "Pay it back whenever you want. Or don't. We don't care." And when he rode on a bus, as soon as the only black person on board left the driver pulled out secret wine bottles and all the passengers began partying.
