* Played almost painfully straight in Disney/{{Zootopia}} with [[spoiler:leading lady Judy Hopps, whose subconscious and largely unwitting bigotry towards foxes turns out to be a major plot point in the film's third act. [[CharacterDevelopment She gets over it.]]]]

* In the ''WesternAnimation/KungFuPandaLegendsOfAwesomeness'' episode "Serpent's Tooth", when FantasticRacism against snakes is flaring up in the village, Po "defends" Viper by saying she's not like other snakes, even if it ''is'' creepy that she's got no limbs and unhinges her jaw to eat. Viper [[{{Understatement}} does not appreciate this as much as he expected]].

*Based on a few moments both on and off screen, Wrestling/VinceMcmahon qualifies. Particularly, calling Wrestling/JohnCena the N word and mistaking Michael Tarver for Shelton Benjamin

* Padme is like this in ''Film/ThePhantomMenace'' according to most sources, as are most citizens of Naboo. They grow up learning to regard the Gungans as uncivilized savages. When the crisis in the movie threatens ''both'' races she decides to reveal herself and speak to Boss Nash personally (rather than through her decoy) and [[HumbleHero humbly beg for assistance.]] (It works.)

* During the controversy over the depiction of Africans in ''VideoGame/ResidentEvil5'', several commentators pointed out that [[CrossCulturalKerfuffle since Capcom is a Japanese company]] and Japan is fairly racially homogeneous, the individuals responsible for the game probably were genuinely unaware that imagery portraying white heroes being menaced by hordes of savage and bestial black people [[UnfortunateImplications has a long history in racist propaganda]]. Capcom's American division has since pledged to communicate better with the home office when these things come up. [[DramaticallyMissingThePoint Of course, they completely ignore that "the hordes of savage and bestial black people" are the victims in the game's context]], in the sense they're locals being controlled and enslaved by PuppeteerParasite from a MegaCorp ([[SomeAnvilsNeedToBeDropped the game even makes mention of corporations using Africa and its people as guinea pigs for their experiments]]), and that the real BigBad is [[spoiler:[[BlondGuysAreEvil the very blonde and caucasian]] Albert Wesker, who's then revealed to be the product of a MasterRace project by Umbrella's founder in his mad quest to become a God]]. They also miss the fact that your in-game partner Sheva Alomar and Josh Stone are black, and that there are quite a few white men among the BrainwashedAndCrazy population.

** Adric, a companion of the Fourth and Fifth Doctors, occasionally has moments like this, largely due to his limited social skills:
--->'''Adric''': That's the trouble with women. Mindless, impatient and bossy.
--->'''Tegan''': You chauvinist! I heard that!
--->'''Adric''': You were meant to.
--->'''Nyssa''': I heard it too. You mean this? (She brandishes the maths textbook which Adric suggested Tegan read to pass the time.) Mindless!
--->'''Adric''': Well, yes. But you're not a woman.
--->'''Nyssa''': I'm not?
--->'''Adric''': No, you're only a girl.

** Mrs. Cooper (Sheldon's mom) has a tendency to do this a lot. She's extremely sweet and the characters love her motherly nature, but she has a lot of stereotypically conservative Texas views instilled into her so doesn't quite understand that offering Raj an exorcism to get rid of the foreign demons that prevent him from talking to women or referring to the church she visits as "nice for a rosary rattler" aren't politically correct things to say. Leonard literally had to make her a list of politically incorrect terms she isn't allowed to say. Of course, when the guys visit her church they aren't a lot better; everyone but Leonard manages to get entirely the wrong end of the stick about praying for things.
