** In season 4, Piper tries to start a task force to end troublemaking in the prison, and inadvertently ends up attracting a bunch of white supremacists, who think that when she refers to "gangs" she means the new influx of Dominican inmates.

* Randy Marsh of ''WesternAnimation/SouthPark'', after he uses the n-word on television in "With Apologies to Jesse Jackson", thinking it was the answer to a ''WheelOfFortune'' bonus puzzle.
** It didn't help that the topic was "People Who Annoy You," and currently the parts he had solved spelled out [=N_GGERS=]. Even the black audience members came to the same conclusion. To anyone wondering, the right answer was Naggers. Stan later defends him saying his father isn't racist, just stupid.

** And there's "Chef Goes Nanners" where Chef lobbies to have the town's flag changed, as it depicts four white men hanging a black man. To Chef's indignation, Stan and Kyle claim to not see what the big deal is. He's completely convinced that they're racists...until he realises that they were so entirely ''not'' racist that they didn't think of the men on the flag as four white men hanging a black man, but merely as four men hanging another man.
*** In the same episode, Jimbo and Ned, who aren't racist but are against having the flag changed for the sake of preserving history, sneak into a KKK meeting disguised as Klan members in order to convince them to switch sides, since they know nobody will vote for whichever side the KKK supports (in fact that's the argument they used, and the KKK agreed with them). When they sneak out of the meeting, they remove their hoods, only for Chef to drive by at that exact moment.

* Kids who haven't been introduced to the concept of race yet may accidentally say racist things [[InnocentlyInsensitive without realizing how offensive it may sound.]]
* There have been a few manga/anime/video game series in which the creators were called racist by Westerners due to their depiction of the non-Japanese, particularly black people. In truth, there's just not a lot of non-Japanese people in Japan, so the creators of those works have to go on whatever information they can find. Today the depictions are less unintentionally offensive, but up until the mid-2000s or so... They could be misinterpreted.

* In the post credits scene of ''My Boss's Daughter'', when Hans (the daughter's ex-boyfriend) is sent to Thailand to oversee the new factory, he's "You people! Back of bus!" by a bus driver. At first he thinks it's because he's black, but the driver then yells "Smoker! Back of bus!" Hans then raises his other hand, holding a cigarette, and the scene cuts to several people smoking at the back of the bus.

* ''ComicStrip/KnightsOfTheDinnerTable'': While attending Garycon, B.A. gets covered in dye from an exploding dyepack when dave attempts to open Brian's briefcase (ItMakesSenseInContext). He attempts to remove it with lighter fluid and only succeeds in smearing it all over his face and hands, making it look like he is in BlackFace. After several people make comments about how offensive his costume is, Sheila is able to explain it away as a (very poor) Drow cosplay.

* Occurs as a [[FunnyMoments funny moment]] in ''{{Film/Cabin Fever}}''. At one point the characters ask a store owner why he has a high-powered rifle behind the counter, and he explains it's "for the blacks" ([[NWordPrivileges not in those exact words]]). At the end of the movie [[spoiler: we see a black group pull up to the store, and the owner goes into the back hurriedly... only to hand them the gun that they'd apparently ordered, at which point the audience sees that he simply doesn't know the difference between using "er" and "a"]].

* One of the more often used tactic on the Left against '''''any''''' criticism against UsefulNotes/BarackObama is to imply or outright state that the sole reason for critising him is because the critic is a racist.
