* This seems to be a recurring issue in the ''Franchise/DragonAge'' series. Especially in ''VideoGame/DragonAgeII'', as one character, [[BitchInSheepsClothing Sister]] [[SinisterMinister Petrice]], actively tries to incite violence against the group of Qunari that are stranded in Kirkwall, who have a different philosophical / religious viewpoint from The Chantry. While the Qunari ''have'' tried to invade and conquer Thedas in the backstory, the ones in Kirkwall aren't actually doing anything but minding their own business. Petrice sees the mere existence of a non-Chantry belief system as an offence worthy of death.

* This seems to be a recurring issue in the ''Franchise/DragonAge'' series. Normally it's the Dalish elves feeling oppressed by the shemlen's (humans') existence, but as the games went on the Qunari take this spot by and large.

** [[spoiler:It's more complicated than it appears. Barian and Astral world were once one and the same, with Astral world's desire to AscendToAHigherPlaneOfExistence leading it to expel everything in it that contained Chaos. This lead to Barian World's creation. It's also revealed that Astral was specifically born to destroy Barian World and that Astral World's goals are slowly killing the remaining inhabitants, who need chaos in order to live. Otherwise they become sick and slowly die.]] In other words, [[spoiler: both sides literally cannot survive while the other exists.]]

* Parodied in the episode of ''SouthPark'' that has "poor" people feel threatened by the arrival of rich people in their town (note: in this case the town is almost all white and all the rich newcomers are black, so here "richness" is used as an [[AcceptableTarget Acceptable Target]]), for fear of [[InvertedTrope their property taxes increasing from the nice houses being built]]. This is silly, as all the rich people are very nice and do not consciously hurt anyone; at their very worst they are InnocentlyInsensitive, wondering why in the world the native townsfolk would watch movies on a "VHS" instead of a DVD player. But the "poor" people just will not stop complaining about them, even arguing that the rich people are going to make their children go to school with rich children and try to turn ''them'' into "richers."

** Played for laughs with Kalifa, who considers her boss [[SmugSnake Spandam's]] mere ''existence'' as sexual harassment. But then played less for laughs within the same arc with Robin, who's forbidden knowledge of the language of the Poneglyphs makes her a prime target for execution by the World Government, while Spandam and CP9 consider her mere existence a crime punishable by death.
