* ''WesternAnimation/TheBoondocks'' throws around "nigga" and "nigger" like no tomorrow, the episode "Grandad's Fight" using it a whopping 54 times alone. The appropriateness of its use (such as between blacks and whites) has been lampshaded a few times:

* Actress and noted feminist Creator/EmmaWatson once exposed herself for a Vanity Fair photo shoot around the time ''Film/BeautyAndTheBeast2017'' was released. Naturally, this caused a bit of minor controversy which led her to invoke this trope in regards to her role in the photo shoot, reminding her base that feminism is more about women's choice than anything.
-->'''Emma Watson''': Feminism is about giving women choice. Feminism is not a stick with which to beat other women with. It's about freedom, it's about liberation, it's about equality. I really don't know what my tits have to do with it.

* Mocked by {{Superman}} villain Manchester Black (who was visually Caucasian), who would frequently use this kind of word and immediately after claim it was okay for him to say that, because he was 1/16th (insert relevant minority group). At the end of his first appearance after being beaten by Superman, the Man of Steel uses this against him by taking a shot at his leadership skills, and then saying "[[MeaningfulEcho And I can say that because]] [[WesternAnimation/JusticeLeague I am a leader]]."

* The image board 4 Chan [[DefiedTrope defies]] this trope, using the word "fag" to refer to ''everyone''. Anonymous who draw are "drawfags", writers are "writefags", and there are even a few Christians on the board[[note]]Don't ask how someone can use 4chan and still be a Christian. Just ''don't''.[[/note]] who refer to themselves as "Christfags". They also like to use the word "nigger" to refer to certain black people, much like the Chris Rock routine mentioned above. Interestingly, some Anons have forsaken the "-fag" suffix in favor of "-friend". The term's use as a suffix meaning "person" is also taken to its logical conclusion, and in threads about sexuality, you'll see "[[OxymoronicBeing straightfags]]," and yes-- [[ShapedLikeItself "gayfags" and "fagfags."]]

* ''Film/DeepCover'': Played with. Lt. Carver interviews three different black police officers to see if they can be recruited for his undercover program by bluntly asking each of them "What's the difference between a black man and a nigger?". The first one tries to awkwardly answer the question showing that he's too docile, the second one flies into a rage which shows that he's too easily provoked, but the third calmly tells him "only a nigger would answer that question" to show him as more cunning and diplomatic than the previous two. At the end, he does [[IronicEcho repeat the question]] and punches Carver in the stomach.
