* Sam from ''Film/DearWhitePeople'' once wrote a sixteen page essay on how ''Film/{{Gremlins}}'' is an allegory for how suburban White Americans fear black people. This interpretation has been noted by critics before, though not quite so seriously, but Sam is a hardcore black nationalist.

* ''ComicStrip/{{Dilbert}}''[='s=] Tina the Tech Writer started off as "brittle" (Scott Adams' term), interpreting all forms of communication as an insult to her profession and/or gender. This trait has largely disappeared over the years due to [[{{Irony}} complaints of it being sexist]].

* Cracked has an article about [[https://web.archive.org/web/20161019233331/http://www.cracked.com/quick-fixes/3-racist-incidents-that-werent-actually-racist/ things that were supposedly racist incidents that actually weren't]] (which, interestingly, has since been removed).
** The examples include people mistaking the word "niggardly", which means something like miserly, for the infamous racial slur. Another was a case of somebody thinking that something described as a black hole meant that it was a hole full of black people. Another was where the a city renamed its yellow public transportation line as the gold line because people claimed the name racist.
** On a larger level, many complain that some of their articles, videos, and podcasts takes this stance.
* While he usually has good points, WebVideo/TheNostalgiaCritic can get a little too on his soapbox about this sometimes. Which is especially glaring since at other times he is blissfully unaware to the point of denial of racist connotations in other media, like in his review of ''Disney/{{Dumbo}}'' and ''Film/SongOfTheSouth''.
** During his review of ''Film/AlienResurrection'', he argues that the death of the one black character didn't really look all that fatal and it was very likely he survived. However [[TalkingToHimself The Nostalgia Critic]] then responds by asking if he's racist. Critic sarcastically replies that yes, he is.
