* Snowball the bunny from ''WesternAnimation/TheSecretLifeOfPets'' is the animal equivalent of this, militantly devoted to overthrowing humans throughout most of the movie. Bonus points for being voiced by African American actor Kevin Hart.

* [[AntiVillain Strangely enough,]] ComicBook/{{Magneto}} is this, though he's white and Jewish and doesn't really care about black people (unless they also happen to be mutants). Loooong ago in TheSixties he was a generically evil villain who wanted to destroy humans because he believes mutants are superior, but by TheSeventies he'd been retooled with a more well-rounded characterization: when his past is revealed, we find he was a Holocaust survivor and believed that the growing hatred for mutants by humans would eventually mean a repeat, leading to a couple decades of [[JumpingOffTheSlipperySlope leading to him going]] [[HeWhoFightsMonsters too far with his methods of]] [[TheRevolutionWillNotBeCivilized "protecting" and "ensuring the future"]] of mutantkind. He and [[BigGood Professor X]] are compared to Malcom X and Martin Luther King , with oppression against mutants as a parallel to oppression of minorities. Which is in fact incredibly racist considering Malcolm X isn't a supermacist or a terrorist but yeah.

* Played with on ''Series/{{Scandal}}''. During the episode, The Lawn Chair, Olivia (having been hired by the police to handle the optics of a fatal shooting of a black teenager by a white cop) comes into conflict with Marcus Walker (a civil rights black neighborhood activist). She admonishes him for using the shooting as a boost to his political ambitions, but he throws it right back in her face by spewing allegations of her betraying the "community", pointing out her commitment to getting a white republican elected president twice and for her high class-status which distances her from the people in this community. The ultimate implication is that his accusation has more to do with class than race, since as a wealthy, successful black woman, she cannot entirely relate to the poor black community she's just walked into.

* Rev. Darnell Potter, a fairly transparent copy of the Rev. Al Sharpton, in ''Series/BlueBloods''. Not only is he a demagogue, an accessory to murder, a crook, a hatemonger and a liar, he's waging a motiveless war on the NYPD to boot.

* The 1997 remake of ''Film/TwelveAngryMen'' recasts the bigoted Juror #10, a white man in the original version, as one. In this version, the defendant is a Hispanic boy, and the juror seems to be angry that the boy's "kind" is "outbreeding" his own people.

* Dian in the first season of ''Franchise/{{Jewelpet}}'' was, in his backstory, a Jewelpet supremacist who wanted to free his kind from humans, thinking that they were taking advantage of their good will and superiority (being magical creatures). He led a rebellion, but it was suppressed and he was banished and sealed for hundreds of years. When he is unsealed again, he has MotiveDecay and only wants revenge.

* The Wayans brothers like the comedic version of this trope, with the addition that the more outspokenly Afrocentric the character is, the more obsessed he is with [[WhereDaWhiteWomenAt banging white chicks]] -- most notably in ''ImGonnaGitYouSucka'' and ''Film/DontBeAMenaceToSouthCentralWhileDrinkingYourJuiceInTheHood''.
