** In another episode, Jerry is trying to date a Native American girl but is held back by constantly looking like a racist to her (such as for doing things like using the phrase "Indian giver"). One particularly awkward case was when he was attempting to figure out directions to a Chinese restaurant and asked a passing mailman... who turned out to be Chinese.

Part of the problem is [[YouKeepUsingThatWord how broad the definition]] of the word ''racism'' has become, going from meaning simply believing that one's race determines one's character (the original definition) to meaning believing that races other than one's own are biologically inferior, to mocking people of other races, to not liking people of other races, to feeling uncomfortable around people of other races, to criticizing the cultures of people of other races, [[LongList to holding naive viewpoints about other races, to using decor or wearing clothing originating with other races, to...]]until [[PoliticalCorrectnessGoneMad it has become all but impossible for people of different races to interact with each other without this accusation being tossed around]].

* A RunningGag on CinemaSins videos is to comment "That's racist" about non-PC lines or images, even though ItMakesSenseInContext or they belong to non-sympathetic or villainous characters. For example, disparaging comments about fantasy creatures like elves will lead to the narrator to comment "[[FantasticRacism That's racist]]".

* In the pilot of ''Series/TheWestWing'', the trope is played for no laughs at all. White House staffers sit down with some advocates of Christian issues to offer an apology for some ill-advised remarks one of them made on a news program. When the Christians turn the good-faith olive branch into a negotiation over political concessions, things get a little heated. Since two of the staffers are Jewish, Toby Ziegler interprets a comment about Josh's "New York sense of humor" (considering he's not from New York) as anti-Semitic. The hostility only grows, descending into an argument over the order of the Commandments, until only the arrival of the President cuts through the bullshit.

It's worth noting that it's unclear whether the woman actually had Toby and Josh's Jewishness on her mind (she claims to resent the implication), and it's also unclear whether Toby was genuinely offended or was seizing an opportunity to regain some control over the situation (either would be in character). It could be considered an InvokedTrope.

** The touchiness of racial issues is dealt with on several other occasions as well. For example, when the President is considering making Charlie Young his personal aide, he briefly has reservations that it may look bad to hire a black boy as what amounts to a valet. He gets past it, and Charlie becomes a significant and beloved character.
