* [[AntiVillain Strangely enough,]] {{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.

* 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''.

* The third ''DirtyHarry'' film, ''Film/TheEnforcer'', has a black militant group based on both the Black Panthers and the the Symbionese Liberation Army.

* The Mau Mau gang from Creator/SpikeLee's ''{{Bamboozled}}''. They fit the "hypocrisy" aspect of this character. The Mau Maus angrily denounce the {{Blackface}} entertainers with "Painted faces, disgrace to the races!" - but they are, in their own way, [[YouAreWhatYouHate just as buffoonish as what they condemn]]. And they're even more hypocritical when they execute one of the show's performers while wearing some of the "Mantan" Halloween masks they so despise (which makes them [[DirtyCoward Dirty Cowards]] as well).

** This is played entirely for comedy, because Tashim's militance is absurd to the extreme. In one scene, as everyone is heading out to the slopes, Tashim carries a spray can. When asked why, he answers that he plains to paint as much of the snow black as he can. And at the episode's end, Tashim approaches the white woman, menacingly telling her, "I've got something to say to you", as if he's going to say something really rude and racist, while she snaps, "I've got something to say to you too", as if she's fed up with his rudeness. Sure enough. . .[[WhereDaWhiteWomenAt they leap into each others arms]] [[BelligerentSexualTension and start making out.]]
