* A group of black students felt frightened and uncomfortable when they discovered a banana peel in a tree during an Ole Miss fraternity retreat. The leaders of the retreat called in a meeting to share their concerns with the rest of the attendants, and to explain the racial connotations of the random banana peel. During this meeting, the culprit behind the discarded banana peel spoke up about the incident. Turns out, the banana peel was put on the tree because he could not find a garbage can.

** Shortly before giving up on the gag, Adams tried balancing out Tina with Antina, "the Antidote to Tina", who was more or less Tina's exact opposite. His critics then accused him of mocking lesbians... because, evidently, [[UnfortunateImplications that's what all strong independent women who are good at math are]]. [[SarcasmMode (Alice must still be in the closet.)]] ''Then'' Adams gave up and moved on.

** In "The Chinese Woman", Jerry mentions to Elaine he likes Chinese women.
--->'''Elaine:''' Isn't that a little racist?
--->'''Jerry:''' If I ''like'' their race, how can that be racist?
** 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.

One particularly awkward case was when he was attempting to figure out directions to a Chinese restaurant and asked a passing mailman... mailman who turned out was bent down and collecting letters from a mailbox.

* Darryl Hughley's character in Series/TheHughleys '''IS''' this trope, at least for the first season. One amusing example is his reaction to learning of [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Zwarte_Piet Zwarte Piet (meaning Black Pete)]]: "So the only black guy at Christmas is a slave? This Santa, does he by any chance wear a white hood?". [[note]] Zwarte Piet is a character from Dutch-Belgian folklore who appears during the annual ''UsefulNotes/{{Sinterklaas}}'' holidays. Covered head to toe with coal dust or chimney dust, Zwarte Piet is a former coal miner or chimney sweep who has become a servant of Sinterklaas, the bearded saint who gives children presents at Christmas. People often dress in BlackFace to portray Zwarte Piet, which has gotten more controversial in recent years, especially among people who think Sinterklaas is an rip-off of SantaClaus, while it's actually the other way around. Also, Zwarte Piet's black face is more ambiguous because historically he is a Caucasian with his face, hands, and even clothes blackened by coal dust or chimney dust, but recently some people have reinterpretted him as African-Dutch despite the historical improbability of such an interpretation. [[/note]]
** Much of the humor in the show was also derived from the fact that Darryl was [[HypocriticalHumor a massive racist himself.]]
