** Malory's also alternatively [[WhereDaWhiteWomenAt hot for]] and cold on black people.

* During the ''United We Stand'' crossover in ''[[Comicbook/UltimateSpiderMan Ultimate Comics: Spider-Man]]'', Comicbook/MilesMorales gets captured by a brainwashed [[YoungAvengers Cassie Lang]]. When Cassie reports to her superiors that the new Spider-Man isn't what they'd expect, Miles calls her a racist, only to then realize she's referring to the fact that he's only 13, not that he's black.

* Peculiar example from WhoopiGoldberg's shortlived sitcom ''Whoopie''. She's been charged with smoking in public and tries to get the judge to dismiss the charge, but he refuses and gives her a stiff fine. She accuses him of being prejudiced. When he declares he's not racist, she clarifies: He's prejudiced against ''smokers''. And then he declares that he ''is'' and that she'll pay the fine ''anyways''.

* In ''VideoGame/FireEmblemAwakening'', training with Lon'qu is said to be brutal if you're a man. If a [[PlayerCharacter Female Avatar]] or [[FieryRedhead Sully]] goes through a Support chain with him, they find that he isn't using his full strength. When Lon'qu flat out ''tells'' Sully that the reason is because she's a woman, she assumes the worst, but [[DarkAndTroubledPast the truth]] is [[TheFirstCutIsTheDeepest more complicated]].

** In an edition of ''Weekend Update'', TinaFey accused Jimmy Fallon of being a "specist" after reporting a story about a man being attacked by two black bears, asking "if it was polar bears would you have said 'two white bears'?" Jimmy responds by revealing that he is married to a black bear, shows the audience the wedding photo, and then asks Tina "Who's the idiot now--you, or me, the guy who married a black bear?"

* Happens near the end of ''Männerhort'' (shelter for men). The (obbiously male) protagonists hide there to get time off they would otherwise have spent stressfully with their women. [[spoiler: In the end one of them comes out as gay. The other men at first feel betrayed since he lied to them but he points out he didn't [[ExactWords actually]] lie - his partner [[GenderBlenderName Alex]]'s "full" first name just wasn't Alexandra. The dudes calm down only to get angry [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin because he supports the wrong sports team.]] ]]

* In ''Film/AKnightsTale'', William is unable to convince female blacksmith Kate to fix his broken armour, until he comes up with this gem:
--> '''William''': It's just as well, they told me I was daft for even asking.
--> '''Kate''': Who?
--> '''William''': The other armourers.
--> '''Kate''': Did they say I couldn't do it because I'm a woman?
--> '''William''': No, they said you were great with horseshoes, but shite with armour. The fact that you were a woman wasn't even mentioned.



* Back in the 2008 election of UsefulNotes/BarackObama, a great number of jokes focused on the fact that for the first time in US history, Americans had ''finally'' elected a president who was… from UsefulNotes/{{Hawaii}}.
