* John Rumford in ''Literature/{{Victoria}}'' is massively prejudiced in various ways against ''anyone'' who isn't a (male) Anglo-Saxon like himself, but not generally in the hateful way a stereotypical modern bigot would be. Rather, he's more innocently condescending than anything, passing comments on every group from excitable women to hot-blooded Latin races or the FightingIrish in the manner of a cultured and polite 19th-century English gentleman a century or two behind his times. Which, really, is [[BornInTheWrongCentury pretty much what he is]].

* Cromwell in ''WebVideo/ShadowrunCorporateSins'' who's a Troll just can't understand why Humans, Elves and Dwarves get offended at being called "piggies", "twinges" and "stumps" respectively.

* Young BJ Blazkowicz is revealed to have been one in ''VideoGame/WolfensteinIITheNewColossus'', largely due to his father being a CompleteMonster who blamed everyone else for his failing business. Upon Billy's first meeting with [[NamesTheSame Billie]], a young black girl, he runs down the LongList of why his daddy wouldn't want him playing with her while looking for tadpoles to catch.

* Similarly, Jimmy Livingston from the ''Film/BubbleBoy'', due to being raised by TheFundamentalist. When dealing with Pushpop, a Hindu man who's hit his DespairEventHorizon after killing a cow...
-->'''Jimmy''': Oh, that's okay, Pushpop. Your religion's all lies.

* Asuna falls prey to this in ''WebVideo/SwordArtOnlineAbridged'' when interacting with Agil, a black player who goes by Tiffany in this treatment. She tries not to be racist around him and so resorts to painfully stilted JiveTurkey speech, which pisses him off, and apologizes over using phrases like "a pot calling the kettle black."
-->'''Agil/Tiffany:''' What? It's a turn of phrase, it's got nothing to do with race.\\
'''Asuna:''' I'm sorry! It's just, you look like a very {{angry black man}}.\\
'''Tiffany:''' Okay, now you see that? ''That'' was racist.\\
'''Kirito:''' (''[[{{Troll}} grinning]]'') Ah, this is great, see? We're learnin' stuff. But in all seriousness, Tiff, could'ja check out this weapon before Asuna starts a full-on race war?

* The premise of ''WebVideo/AskLovecraft'' is that the famous horror author has been brought BackFromTheDead to answer questions on the internet. While he seems to have gotten the hang of some modern technology, he [[FairForItsDay has yet to acclimate to modern social norms.]]
