* Though typically portrayed as an UpperClassTwit, Bruce Wayne's (platonic) friend, Veronica Vreeland, on ''WesternAnimation/BatmanTheAnimatedSeries'' had donated much of her family's fortunes to various charities (mostly stuff related to animals and the environment), sometimes at fancy public events held to promote those causes. Selina Kyle, who [[PretenderDiss considers herself an]] ''[[PretenderDiss actual]]'' [[PretenderDiss animal-rights activist]], once observed that Veronica could possibly be getting involved in those causes because she feels tremendous guilt about all the endangered species her ancestors shot when they were [[GreatWhiteHunter big-game hunters]]. Bruce has come to Veronica's defense at least once, pointing out that whatever her motivation is, she's at least doing something socially responsible with her money, which is still way more than what can be said for most of the other rich people in Gotham City (at least from what's seen on the show).

* [[http://www.stuffwhitepeoplelike.com Stuff White People Like]]'s definition of "white people" generally refers to American, metropolitan, bicoastal, college-educated liberals, and includes a lot of Bourgeois Bohemian tastes. The initialism "SWPL" is sometimes used by conservative critics as a pejorative term for the type of people described here. (This can be considered ironic - even tragic - if you accept the premise that many white people become liberals in order to avoid being mocked for being stereotypical white conservatives.)

to:

* Dean and Missy Armitage in ''Film/GetOut2017'' are a villainous example. Upper-middle class suburbanites who go out of their way to present themselves as progressive and non-racist people, this doesn't stop them from being [[CondescendingCompassion incredibly condescending]] towards Chris and treating young black people like human props, [[spoiler:stealing their bodies so they can enjoy extended lives with the "physical advantages" of being young and black]].

The defining trait of the Bourgeois Bohemian (Bobo for short) is that while he belongs to the upper or upper-middle class in socioeconomic terms, his values are often inherited from the countercultural movements of the 1960s. Expect very open attitudes towards issues such as religion, sexuality, and recreational drugs, as well as support for liberal or progressive political causes. A fondness for the state-owned Creator/{{NPR}} (National Public Radio, USA), Creator/{{PBS}} (Public Broadcast System, USA), BBC (British Broadcast Corporation, UK) and ABC (Australian Broadcast Corporation) is also common, as is a tendency to shop at places like the USA's Whole Foods 'organic' food retail chain (created and owned by an unpologetically cynical arch-capitalist).[[note]]At least, prior to its sale to Amazon, which, coincidentally enough, is owned by ''another'' unapologetically cynical arch-capitalist.[[/note]]

* ''{{Portlandia}}'' makes fun of the counter-culture scene of Portland, Oregon. Many characters are middle-aged professionals with bohemian values.

* In ''Literature/{{Madicken}}'': Madicken's father is a newspaper editor, so he's rich enough to give his daughters a priviledged upper middle class upbringing. And the family belongs to the upper crust of the small town. Even so, he is proud to be a socialist and gets really angry when other rich people treat poor people badly.

to:

* Young Jolyon from ''Literature/TheForsyteSaga'' is very much a political liberal by the standards of the time. He left his first wife and his eldest daughter to live with another woman, start a family with her and become an artist. And even after he inherits his father's fortune, which makes it possible for him to raise also his younger three children in an upper middle class lifestyle, he sticks by his ideals and remains the antipole to his conservative cousin Soames.
