* The god Cyrgon of ''[[Literature/TheElenium The Tamuli]]'' ordered that any child born from the union of a "pure" Cyrgai soldier and foreign woman was to be murdered. The bastards, known as Cynesgans, were eventually granted leniency when it was determined they made good cannon fodder. After the [[spoiler:apparent]] demise of the Cyrgai race, the Cynesgans came to power but were looked down upon by every other race.

* [[TheAdventuresOfTomSawyer Injun Joe.]] The bad kind. And he's even referred to as such several times.

So, you just happen to be the child of that army guy who [[GoingNative went native]] and married TheChiefsDaughter? Or perhaps the reverse applies and dear mum left home and joined dad on the ancestral family homestead back in rural Smalltownington. This of course is assuming both your parents [[ParentalAbandonment are alive]] and love each other (StarCrossedLovers have a tendency to have it rough). You might, after all, be the product of accidental affairs, or worse yet, [[ChildByRape non-consensual sex]]. And then you were born. Congratulations, you are now guaranteed to be despised by one or both sides of your family. Maybe it was that time you wore the ritual face paint to Sunday school...

* The Claymores of, well, ''Manga/{{Claymore}}'' are hybrids between the monsters known as Yoma and normal Humans, all the Claymores are originally born human and then artificially transformed into half-breeds through a rather painful process that involve [[BioAugmentation transplanting Yoma flesh and blood into them]]. As a result Claymores are the only ones able to fight the Yoma and protect humans from them, but they end up being shunned and feared by common humans for their similarities to Yoma and of course the Yoma themselves have a dislike for those who exist only to hunt them down.

* Series/{{Roots}} touches on this. It is repeatedly mentioned that Kunta Kinte has nothing but contempt for light skinned blacks, once citing how a girl from his village was shunned for giving birth to a mixed hold after escaping from slave traders. His daughter Kizzy is very dismayed at how light her ChildByRape is.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Series/LawAndOrderUK'' touches on this when DS Joe Hawkins is called a "mongrel" by a {{Jerkass}} dark-skinned suspect. It's one of the few instances that shows that colorism can go both ways.
* ''Any Day Now'' also cites this when the dark-skinned Renee runs for District Attorney. Her campaign manager is a light-skinned, biracial woman, and the two almost immediately clash, with Renee taking every suggestion the woman makes as an example of ButNotTooBlack. Only when the woman finally blasts her for her nasty attitude and tells Renee that she will not apologize for being proud of her multicultural heritage does Renee realize that she's been just as bad.

** [[spoiler: Humans have gotten this too, though they don't realize it. Unlike the gods, demons and other beings who have ordinary souls, humans ''by definition'' are [[AnatomyOfTheSoul comprised of two elements]]: a [[OurSoulsAReDifferent soul]] (like every other living thing) and "humanity", a different sort of substance that's like a soul, but somehow different. [[JigsawPuzzlePlot Putting the pieces together]], however, reveals that "humanity" ''is'' a soul; specifically, a [[PiecesOfGod a piece of the Dark Soul]], the fourth great Lord Soul in opposition to the other three. As with Priscilla, the gods are very, very wary of humans, and the DLC once again proves [[ProperlyParanoid they had every reason to be afraid of what humanity could do if left unchecked]].]]

* Hagspawn in ''[[VideoGame/NeverwinterNights2 Mask of the Betrayer]]'' tend to get a poor welcome from both sides of their heritage; humans shun them for being ugly brutes spawned from monsters, while hags are just [[AlwaysChaoticEvil evil and general]] and don't grant exceptions to their offspring (especially offspring with none of their magical talent). Gannayev, your hagspawn, gets the extra bonus of being disliked even by other ''hagspawn'', as [[MySpeciesDothProtestTooMuch he has little in common with them both in appearance and demeanor.]] Human girls like him though. Much to the ire of their fathers.

* ''Theatre/InAbrahamsBosom'': The central theme of the play. The rather gross and racist message seems to be that Abraham's half-white, half-black ancestry is his problem; that his whiteness is making him raise himself up above his station and try for things that black people have no business trying to achieve.
--> '''Lije''': Abe is bad mixed up all down inside.\\
'''Bud''': White and black make bad mixtry.\\
'''Lije''': Do dat. (Thumping on his chest) Nigger down heah. (Thumping his head) White mens up heah. Heart say do one thing, head say 'nudder. Bad, bad.

* In ''Theatre/MissSaigon'', Kim is trying to prevent her son by an American GI from experiencing this. The fact that her cousin Thuy ''tries to kill'' the little boy tells you how rampant the hatred towards these children are. Later in the show, we see that one of the soldiers has formed an organization for these children, called "Bui-Doi" (many of whom have been abandoned by their mothers) trying to either reunite them with their American fathers or find loving adoptive homes for them. Even the Engineer gets a little of this. At some point in the show, we learn he's the result of his prostitute mother's liason with her French customer. One wonders if he may have had the chance to be more than a pimp had this not been the case.
