* One of the reasons white patrons adored CabCalloway's band at the Cotton Club was Calloway's extravagant "hepcat" persona, complete with the most outrageous slang imaginable. Some of the words he invented (and later published in the "Hepster's Dictionary") have passed into general use.

** This is the case for most of the Vegas tribes. Apart from the [[Creator/TheRatPack Chairmen]], it also has [[TheMafia The Omertas]], the White Glove Society (upper class posh lingo), and an entire group of {{Elvis Impersonator}}s, the Kings. The latter go the whole nine yards, with their hair styles and outfits based on Elvis' costumes and Elvis speak (though it's only spoken by the King and Pacer, since they're the only surviving members that got to hear the Elvis voice recordings before they broke).

Added DiffLines:

* In ''Literature/MrMercedes'', otherwise well-spoken Jerome (who's in his late teens and black) affects an Ebonics-speaking persona named "Tyrone". This intensely irritates most people around him. He seems to have grown out of it by the next book in the Bill Hodges trilogy, ''Literature/FindersKeepers'', which takes place a few years later.

* On the episode of ''WesternAnimation/{{Recess}}'' where TJ's use of the word "whomps" (which the adults believe to be some newfangled obscenity rather than an UnusualEuphemism) eventually lands him in ''court''. Miss Grotke brings in her old professor Dr. Reginald "Dice" Weathersby, Ph.D., "Slangologist", an expert on American slang, to defend him. This person talks exclusively in what is apparently supposed to be roughly '60s-'70s slang, which confuses everyone in the room and greatly offends [[MoralGuardians Mr. White]], the prosecutor. Needless to say doesn't help TJ's case at all.
