* Xavier Woods definitely qualifies. He's a fan of anime, comic books, video games, and pretty much anything from TheNineties. Not only is he OneOfUs, Xavier Woods is also educated. One of his degrees is a Master's in Psychology and he's working on getting a PhD.

* ''Theatre/HarryPotterAndTheCursedChild'' is set to feature Afro-British actress Noma Dumezweni as [[TheSmartGuy Hermione Granger]]. The ''Literature/HarryPotter'' fandom has been floating the idea of Hermione as black for quite some time now, and although the idea is still controversial (partly due to ambiguous descriptors -- her eyes are brown and her hair is dark and curly, but her face is described as various colors in different scenes), Creator/JKRowling (the author of the books) and Creator/EmmaWatson (a white actress who played Hermione in [[Film/HarryPotter the movies]]) have spoken in support of this casting choice.

The Black Nerd is a countertrope to [[WhiteDudeBlackDude common racial stereotypes]]. Miost nerds are portrayed by races with the stereotype of being weak or bookish, such as whites, Asians, and Jews. Black people, on the other hand, are often portrayed as [[JiveTurkey jive-talking]] {{Soul Brotha}}s, {{Gangbangers}}, or {{Scary Black M|an}}en. The Black Nerd upsets these trends by being, well, a [[ShapedLikeItself Black Nerd]]. This is especially common in comedies, where writers are often reluctant to feed into racial stereotypes, but need flaws to make their characters funny. Giving a black character personality flaws which run counter to common stereotypes is a convenient way to add diversity, while trying to avoid accusations of discrimination.
