* Zeus from ''Film/DieHardWithAVengeance'' definitely qualifies. In fact, Creator/SamuelLJackson researched the role to look and act exactly like UsefulNotes/MalcolmX himself.

** [[StarWars "Jabari Jabari Binko"]] in an early ''Boondocks'' strip can be a parody of this.

* An early episode of ''FamilyGuy'' had Peter discover that one of his ancestors had been a black slave who was owned by the Pewderschmidts, the family his in-laws belong to. As a result, Peter briefly becomes this trope, dressing in traditional African robes and insisting that everyone call him by his new black name, "Kishwa". However, when his father-in-law Carter offers to pay reparations, Peter just drops the whole thing.

* ''LegendsOfChamberlainHeights'' has Malik, the brother of main character Grover. Malik is a huge fan of the original Malcolm X, admonishes his brothers Grover and Montrel (a basketball-obsessed wannabe and a pot smoker respectively) for affirming black stereotypes, constantly spouts anti-white rethoric, and targets his drug-dealing business exclusively to the "white devil" in the hopes of making them self-destruct. The kicker? ''Malik is 8 years old!''

These characters are often very far to the left of the political spectrum, and usually militant. These black radicals or activists are depicted as a bunch of [[StrawHypocrite hypocritical]], irrational, paranoid, unreasonable, lazy, bigoted, [[EverythingIsRacist race-card-playing]], [[ConspiracyTheorist conspiratorial]] raving loons. Even within black TV shows and movies, they're very rarely depicted as respectable or intelligent people whose opinion is of any real merit. When it comes to black TV and films, this could be an attempt by some black writers to subvert the stereotype of black people agreeing with these particular views. In the process, they ended up creating a StrawCharacter. Needless to say these characters can easily veer into UnfortunateImplications territory. Some even see these characters as tactics to discredit the image of conscious black people in mainstream media.
