* Subverted in ''ComicBook/{{Manhunter}}''. Kate, who's white, tries this on Director Bones when refuses to send back-up to help Kate rescue a group of Mexican women from superhuman organ-thieves. She insinuates that he has forgotten what color his skin would be, since despite the fact that he literally looks like a skeleton, Bones is in fact a black man. He [[http://28.media.tumblr.com/tumblr_lx6vfqUDqu1qeenqto1_500.jpg immediately tears into Kate]] and essentially tells her "Shut up, you donít know shit about being black, so donít you dare patronize me and act like you understand what it means to be a minority."

* In ''Film/TheBirthOfANation'', the "radical republicans" are implied to have betrayed the white race, especially with Stoneman himself having an extramarital affair with a black woman - leading him to give power to the evil mulatto who later tries to rape his daughter.

* ''ComicStrip/TheBoondocks'':
** Surprisingly averted. While StrawmanPolitical characters abound, particularly black ones, never at any point do any of the characters seriously suggest that the others are race traitors. Even Uncle Ruckus, a self-hating black man who constantly expounds upon the joys of Caucasian-hood, is never rejected by his friends however misguided and extreme his actions become.
** Occurs in the Trial of R. Kelly where Tom is accused of being a self-hating black man because he's married to a white woman. However, he's accused of this by the white defense attorney.
* ''ComicStrip/CalvinAndHobbes'': When they're holding meetings at their [[HeManWomanHater anti-girls club]], the former sometimes accuses the latter of being a traitor to the male sex because he actually finds women attractive.

* Appears a few times in ''TheSpaceGypsyAdventures''. DC Bones, as well as being a Federal Alliance officer, is also a Space Gypsy, like protagonist Gemma. This doubles as a MortonsFork for him, because he knows that to side with the Alliance would label him as a traitor to his clan, but to side with his clan would label him as a traitor to the Alliance. More often than not, he'll let his devotion to the Alliance preside over his loyalties to the Space Gypsies. This means that poor Bones is unable to try and reach out to Gemma, and convince her that he's not ''entirely'' bad, when he tries to talk to her in ''The Christmas New Arrival''.

* Phase of the Literature/WhateleyUniverse gets it going and coming. He '''was''' a scion of the mutant-hating Goodkind empire, until he manifested as a mutant. His family sees him as a traitor to their cause. Now he's at [[SuperheroSchool Whateley Academy]], surrounded by most of the teenaged mutants on the planet. Lots of them know he's a Goodkind and treat him as a traitor to mutant-dom.

** In another episode, Will and Carlton try to join a black fraternity on campus. The latter is especially treated hard throughout Pledge Week. Top Dog, the leader of the fraternity, eventually reveals out that he had no intention of taking Carlton in because of how preppy and rich he is, though they still offer Will a spot (which, obviously, he declines). When Carlton founds out the truth, he calls Top Dog out for his ignorance.
