* Anna May Wong would frequently encounter these problems in Hollywood. The good parts went to white actresses wearing {{Yellowface}}, while she was only offered roles as a DragonLady or BeautifulSlaveGirl.

* Hirohiko Araki mentioned in an interview that he believes one of the reasons the first two parts of ''JojosBizarreAdventure'' didn't make as much of a splash as the third, which starred the [[ButNotTooForeign half-Japanese, half-American]] Jotaro Kujo, was because they featured wholly European protagonists during a time when Japanese audiences were heavily against such characters. Since then, with the exception of ''[[JojosBizarreAdventureSteelBallRun Steel Ball Run]]'' every protagonist in the series has some measure of Japanese heritage in order to avert this trope.

* ''ComicBook/{{Witch}}'' has a majority minority cast (two biracial girls, one Chinese-American girl, one lightskinned ambiguously latina girl, and one white girl) but that's never hurt its popularity. It's one of the more popular female-aimed comics (and [[WesternAnimation/{{Witch}} cartoons]]) of the 2000s.

* ''Series/ThatsSoRaven'' is recognized as one of the Disney Channel's iconic shows, essentially acting as the codifier for shows that weren't influenced by ''Series/LizzieMcGuire''. It was so popular, it ran past the typical Disney Channel 65-episode limit[[note]]Disney Channel tends to cancel shows once they've hit 65 episodes[[/note]] and gained a spin-off, ''Series/CoryInTheHouse''.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Literature/TheGoodEarth'' was a bestselling and critically acclaimed novel about the lives of Chinese farmers. A film adaptation was greenlit, and the original author and the filmmakers themselves wanted an all Asian cast. Sadly this was Hollywood in the 1930s and most of the parts went to white actors in {{Yellowface}}. Creator/AnnaMayWong, leading Chinese-American movie star, wanted desperately to play the female lead - but the Hays Code prevented her from playing the wife of a white man (even if he was made up to look Chinese).
* Anna May Wong would frequently encounter these problems in Hollywood. The good parts went to white actresses wearing {{Yellowface}}, while she was only offered roles as a DragonLady or BeautifulSlaveGirl.
* ''Theatre/FlowerDrumSong'' meanwhile ''did'' feature an almost all-Asian cast (nothing to sneer at in the 1960s) and was the only Rogers & Hammersteins film adaptation to lose money at the Box Office.

* Issa Rae, the creator of ''WebVideo/MisadventuresOfAwkwardBlackGirl'', discusses this in this [[http://www.vulture.com/2011/12/issa-rae-on-the-mis-adventures-of-awkward-black-girl-and-creating-the-black-liz-lemon.html interview]]. She says that the show couldn't exist without the Internet because TV has a very strict notion of how a black character should act, which is why ''ABG'''s network TV adaptation was in DevelopmentHell for so long. A SpiritualSuccessor of sorts, ''Series/{{Insecure}}'' was released on {{HBO}} in 2016 (which could also reflect this trope, since HBO is likely the only network that would take a risk on a show with a majority black cast).

* The Music/QueenLatifah film ''Girls Trip'' opened with 34 million dollars at the U.S. box office, coming in second place to the blockbuster ''Film/{{Dunkirk}}'' and easily beating out the big budget sci-fi spectacle ''Film/ValerianAndTheCityOfAThousandPlanets''. More significantly, it managed to be a hit despite analysts noting the poor track record of other comedies released that summer, such as the Creator/WillFerrell / Creator/AmyPoehler vehicle ''The House'' or the Creator/ScarlettJohansson movie ''Film/RoughNight''.

* ''Film/GetOut'' was seen as a long shot, as it was an indie horror film about race, starred a [[Creator/DanielKaluuya largely-unknown]] (at least in the U.S.) actor as the lead, and was director Jordan Peele's first movie. It opened at #1 at the box office and garnered rave reviews, and has since grossed 76 million dollars against a meager 5 million dollar budget.
