* Parodied in a series of ''TheManShow'' sketches. A hapless white guy is presented with an opportunity to cheat on his wife, and as he agonizes over the decision, a self-identified MagicalNegro appears to him, sings a song about "Listening to your penis's heart," and helps him find a way to rationalize the infidelity.

* ''TheVampireDiaries'' is known for its portrayal of Black Witches. Witches on the show are predominantly Black, and most Black characters are witches. Witches, the most powerful supernatural characters, are shown to be descendants of slaves, although this is not openly acknowledged or referenced. Although they are incredibly powerful, witches- or black witches are subservient to the white characters. What rare insights we are given to the world of witches, we are made to understand that most magic is done selflessly for the benefit of white characters, or to "preserve the balance" of nature. Notably, Emily Bennett worked as Katherine's handmaid. In addition, she used her powers to provide her and other vampires immunity from sunlight. ''Why'' she would do this despite obviously not approving of the "vampire lifestyle" is apparently a IOweYouMyLife situation that is never expanded on. The subtext isn't really helped by the series being set in the American South.

Added DiffLines:

* Henry from ''Series/{{Eureka}}'' is one of the smartest people in a [[PlanetOfHats town full of geniuses]], but unlike the majority of local scientists, who work in the [[ResearchInc sleek GD facility]], Henry wears [[AlmightyJanitor overalls with a nametag]] and works out of a gas station/garage. He spends most of his time solving the problems of other people, particularly the (white) main character [[IdiotHero Sheriff Jack Carter]]. Eventually subverted to some extent, as he suffers his own crises and gets his own storylines, but to the end he dresses like a grease monkey and solves people's problems with wise homilies and [[ClarkesThirdLaw magical know-how]].

* ''{{Benson}}'' is an odd subversion -- it's about a wise black servant employed in the household of a wealthy governor's family, who solves all their problems. And is secretly the governor's most trusted political adviser. But unlike most Magical Negroes he is the main character and often has problems of his own to deal with, he constantly insults the Governor and the staff behind their backs and to their faces, and is often dragged into their problems whether he wants to help them or not. Eventually Benson seeks his own political office, running against his former mentor plus a [[DarkHorseVictory dark horse]] in a close political race. The show was deliberately ended in a CliffHanger, though WordOfGod states that, yes, Benson did win that office.
