* Happens often to Wallace White in ''WebComic/LeftoverSoup''. He wants to be the white side in chess (or it's equivalent) not because he's black, but because his last name is White. Jamie is brought to him for a suit not for, as he initially assumed, a "gay makeover" but because they are about the same size and Wallace was sure to be home. Even Word of God States that he has a large penis not because he's black, but because he represents the author's idealised self.

* On ''Series/{{Supernatural}}'', a couple of African-American hunters are accosted in a bar by a hostile white skinhead. His taunts seem like the standard "Your kind don't belong in here" schtick… until his BlackEyesOfEvil are revealed. In this case, "your kind" means ''monster-hunters'', because the skinhead [[spoiler: and everyone else in the bar]] is possessed.

* The superheroes [[PlayingWithFire Fire]] and [[AnIcePerson Ice]] in the Franchise/DCUniverse have been close friends and partners for the entirety of their tenure in comics. This has, over time, [[HoYay given rise to a lot of romantic/sexual subtext between them]] and corresponding theories in the fandom. When they were added to the [[HeroesUnlimited expanded roster]] of ''[[WesternAnimation/JusticeLeague Justice League Unlimited]]'' TheFlash began to nurse a not-so-subtle crush on Fire and Hawkgirl tried to prod him into action as best she knew how.

* In ''GoodnessGraciousMe'', one scene has one sketch where an Indian man comes out to his parents with his partner. The scene ends with him getting slapped and told he should have found a nice Indian Boy instead.

* In ''Fanfic/OfLiliesAndChestnuts'', when Fleur De Lis and Fancy Pants see a bat pony as their prime adoption choice, Fleur pulls fancy aside and ''demands'' they pick somepony else. Although racism against bat ponies pervades the Canterlot Elite of which Fleur is a member, Fleur just guesses (and is proven right) that Chestnut just acts ostensibly lower-class and would sabotage the family's good standing. Eventually, [[DefrostingIceQueen Fleur warms up to Chestnut]].

* Mentioned in ''[[http://www.tthfanfic.org/wholestory.php?no=28756 It's All About the Mind]]''. [[Literature/HarryPotter Padma and Parvati Patil's]] parents have no problem with them being in a three-way relationship with another girl… but are less than thrilled by the fact that Hermione isn't an Indian like them.
* In the ''WesternAnimation/TheLegendOfKorra'' fic ''[[https://m.fanfiction.net/s/10667104/1/People-Gonna-Talk People Gonna Talk]]'', the fact that his daughter married another woman doesn't even register with Hiroshi Sato. He is, however, furious that she married a Bender… and not just ''any'' bender, but the Avatar, "the living embodiment of the ability that had taken her mother".
* Another ''WesternAnimation/TheLegendOfKorra'' [[http://neodusk.deviantart.com/art/LoK-Double-Entendre-504779111 fan comic]] did something similar with a hilarious string of {{Double Entendre}}s

* In [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xjjBA7ONB34 this commercial]] for the Tide To Go stain removal pen, a gay male couple are about to head inside a church to get married when an official-looking woman--clearly a parody of infamous county clerk Kim Davis--halts them at the door and refuses to let them "blemish the sanctity of marriage." As the grooms get up in arms, she reaches into her purse to pull out the Tide pen and clean away a large stain on the ginger groom's shirt, then she straightens the other groom's bow tie. With no more objections, she gives the men her blessing and walks off.

Added DiffLines:

* A non-comedic example in ''Literature/{{Wolfheart}}'', when Varian Wrynn shows up at a meeting of Alliance leaders and expresses his dislike for the proposed membership of the [[OurWerewolvesAreDifferent worgen]] from Gilneas. Everyone initially assumes he has an issue with them being worgen. Nope, he's cool with that. He just distrusts Gilneans and Lord Genn Greymane in particular for abandoning the Alliance during the Third War.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Literature/{{Genome}}'': When the crew of the starship ''Mirror'' discovers that their passengers are a pair of aliens and their clone guide, some of them are a little miffed. One, who is from a planet, whose population seeks to exterminate all aliens, obviously doesn't like or trust aliens. But the navigator Pak initially also sounds like he doesn't like aliens. Nope. Aliens he's okay with. It's ''clones'' he can't stand. Why? They take away jokes from non-clones. Earlier, Pak pulls something similar on Alex. When they first meet, while Alex is looking for crewmembers, Pak asks if Alex has a problem with him being gay. Alex looks at him like he's crazy (it's the distant future, after all, all silly superstitions like that are long in the past) and tells him he doesn't discriminate. Pak then tells him he's a Natural (non-genetically-modified). Alex (being a [[DesignerBabies Designer Baby]] and distrustful of Naturals) realizes he's been led into a trap, knowing he can't reject Pak simply for being a Natural without going back on his claim of not discriminating.
