* Referenced in ''[[http://archiveofourown.org/works/7352899?view_full_work=true Ultrasonic]]'', a crossover fic between ''Disney/{{Zootopia}}'' and ''WesternAnimation/MiraculousLadybug''. At one point Marinette wonders whether Chat Noir's signature cat puns would be offensive in the world of Zootopia, coming from anyone other than a cat (as Marinette is at that moment).

* In ''The Santaroga Barrier'' by FrankHerbert, there's a black guy who's in a relationship with a white girl and is called a "damn nigger" by her father. He claims it was done in an affectionate way and wasn't worse for him than someone using the words "blondie" or "redhead", but adds that you may have to be black to understand this reasoning. (The story is set in a kinda {{utopia}}n community, which is also a TownWithADarkSecret.)

Added DiffLines:

* Averted in ''Series/LukeCage.'' The title character gets [[BerserkButton pissed]] at hearing this word, even and ''especially'' if another black person uses it. His reactions range from going into a CharacterFillibuster or WorldOfCardboardSpeech or just plain kicking the user's ass.

* ''Series/BlackIsh'': One episode revolves around this discussion after Jack gets in trouble for saying the word while singing "[[Creator/KanyeWest Gold Digger]]" (uncensored) at a school talent show. Whether or not it was okay for him to use the word in public even though he's black is debated back and forth, as well as who else can say it (Dre angrily argues that white people are trying to punish his child because they're jealous of his N-Word Privileges. The school principal, who is also black, feels that the school's no tolerance for hate speech policy should apply to everyone). In an interesting aversion of the LatinoIsBrown trope, it's mentioned at one point that certain Latinos ''can'' say the word if they're street enough (Fat Joe is allowed, Ricky Martin is not).

* The word queer has in the past decade or so been "reclaimed" by those in the LGBT community. Some still may not be comfortable using it, given its history as a slur, but more and more LGBT people refer to themselves as queer, with some even using the word as the ''only'' descriptor for their sexual or gender identity. Whether or not straight and cisgendered people can use it, on the other hand, is up for debate. It's usually only considered okay if someone in the LGBT community has explicitly been asked to be called queer by everybody, or if the straight/cis person in question has very firmly established themself as a genuine ally. Outside of these circumstances, the use of the word queer by a non-LGBT person will typically be assumed to be an insult.
