* ''Film/BlackPanther2018'' gives us both Killmonger and his father N'Jobu. N'Jobu was a Wakandan spy in America who became disillusioned with his home country after witnessing the plight of African-Americans suffering from racism and Wakanda's refusal to help due to it's isolationist policies. As a result, N'Jobu [[spoiler:helped Klaue steal vibranium in exchange for advanced Wakandan technology to empower oppressed minorities so they can fight back, until his brother King T'Chaka caught wind of it and killed him.]] Years later, Killmonger takes his father's goals further by [[spoiler:attempting to take over the Wakandan throne and using his power to ship Wakandan technology to spies all over the globe in an effort to overthrow all the world's governments and establish a new world order where the Wakandans and other black people rule over everyone else]].

* [[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 mutant). 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's therefore more of a analogue to Meir Kahane than Malcolm X, and even uses Kahane's motto of "Never Again" to justify his position, even though 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.

* Commando X in ''ComicBook/{{Static}}'' was an early villain. He started off as a vigilante who attacked white supremacists before he JumpedOffTheSlipperySlope and started attacking innocent Jews because of his conspiracy theory-fueled anti-Semitism. Unlike most examples, this is actually an InvokedTrope: his character is used to address the troubled relationship between Jews and Black people in cities like Dakota, and to show Static the dangers of extremism.

* Fudge from ''Film/HigherLearning'' is a sixth year senior at the university. He is well-read and intelligent, but attempts to use his EverythingIsRacist philosophy as an excuse to be lazy. Malik turns into this as the movie goes on, using his school assignments as a soapbox for poorly thought out rants about America's racist history, criticizing his black professors for giving him bad grades for subpar work, and bullying his white roommate into becoming a Neo-Nazi. The movie as a whole is a deconstruction of this trope: this attitude is the result of legitimate frustration of America as a whole trying to pretend that racism is over with, but in turn causes racial tensions to boil over.

* [[NamesToRunAwayFromReallyFast Ras the Exhorter]] from Ralph Ellison's ''Literature/InvisibleMan''. Ras is a black separtist who uses inflammatory rhetoric and violence to get his point across, which causes no end of trouble for Ellison's AuthorAvatar. He directly contrasted to the Brotherhood (a stand-in for the American Communist Party), who are a well-meaning, but ineffectual group of Whites who actually harbor obliviously racist views.

* Dewey from ''WesternAnimation/TheBoondocks'' is a hypocritical counterpart to Huey Freeman, who takes "down wit' the struggle" much further than even Huey by reading poetry, wearing capris, headwraps and sandals, even going as far as to become a Muslim...and yet he doesn't even know the basic Islamic greeting. Huey himself is both a deconstruction and a reconstruction of the trope: he's an intelligent, opinionated Black kid with radical politics who is not a StrawCharacter, but nobody takes him seriously because he's a kid and tends to ruin their fun.

Though he toned it down once he became the fan-favorite ''[=SmackDown=]'' [[ReasonableAuthorityFigure GM]]. Coincidentally, Brown and Henry were former members of the Nation.

* ''TheLegendsOfChamberlainHeights'' 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!''

* A two-parter on ''Series/FridayNightLights'' has Coach Mac make some ignorant comments about the natural abilities of black players versus white players that spark controversy and create tension between the white and black students. Smash, who was the one the comments revolved around in the first place, doesn't think it's that big a deal until his black activist girlfriend Waverly convinces him that Mac needs to be fired, especially after Mac botches his apology press conference. So Smash leads all the black players on a protest where they refuse to play in the team's next playoff game until Mac is fired. When Coach Taylor makes it clear he won't fire Mac ([[NobleBigot who clearly isn't a hateful man and actively struggles with the prejudices passed onto him by his father]]) and will just use JV players to fill the roster holes, Smash considers ending the protest so the black players won't put their college football scholarship prospects at stake. However, Waverly tells him not to do it and it doesn't matter if the players ruin their futures if it's for the cause. Eventually, Smash's mother gets fed up with her and tells Smash that the protest isn't going to prove anything to the racists in Dillion and that the best way for him and the other players to do is to play, get their scholarships and college degrees, and become successful adults to prove the racists wrong and inspire future generations.
