* Cartman in ''WesternAnimation/SouthPark'', surprisingly, is turning into this in the most recent seasons. After his scary encounter with "Jewpacabra" and subsequent [[spoiler: proclaimed conversion to Judaism]] he argues in favor of an angry and malicious Torah/Old Testament god. And the entire plot of "Cartman Finds Love" revolves around his racist views manifesting in a need to hook Token up with the new black girl in class because they 'belong together'. The lengths he goes to prevent Kyle from mucking up is plan is pretty extraordinary.

This trope has its roots in the eighteenth-century Enlightenment, when well known scholars of the day condemned ''religious'' bigotry but viewed ''racial'' bigotry as acceptable and even logical. The attitude went mainstream during the Victorian era and then steadily degraded as it percolated down through the less educated classes. More modern anthropological discoveries during the early twentieth century did much to [[DiscreditedTrope discredit scientific racism]], and then [[WorldWarII the Holocaust]] [[DeadHorseTrope killed it off for good as a topic of serious discussion]]. In fiction, however, it is alive and well.

* Jesus is presented in this way in a ''Series/ThatMitchellAndWebbLook'' sketch when his disciples [[DeconstructedTrope point out the inherent]] UnfortunateImplications in the Parable of the Good Samaritan. Note that, unlike how the sketch puts it, Samaritans were not an ethnic group but a sect of Judaism considered heretical by mainstream Judaism, thus making the moral of the parable less "goodness comes in unexpected places" but more "people society ''say'' are good (the rich man and the priest) can be still be dicks to you while people society ''say'' are dicks (the Samaritan) can still be a true brother to you, so don't go around treating people based on what society ''says'' about them but rather what they ''do''" (which is exactly the point the disciples make in the sketch).

* Despite the page quote above, the point of the Good Samaritan actually tells you to let go of your predispositions when you (or another) are in need. That's why in the story, the person who helps is the one who Jesus' audience would have least expected to help: a Samaritan. It's less inherent bigotry and more using another culture's bigotry to make a point about why that kind of hatred was bad. The Samaritan can be any stranger, really, it was just more relevant and evocative to the Jewish audience that the good man is a Samaritan. Indeed, Jesus tries to make this point in the sketch quoted, telling them to have a good think about their attitudes - but the disciples as portrayed don't ''need'' any such lesson, hence their reaction.

* In the ''Manga/OnePiece''/''WesternAnimation/StevenUniverse'' crossover ''Fanfic/AGemInTheRough,
''Pearl's character arc is seemingly to overcome this. Even though she respects and admires the humans in the Grand Line (especially Zoro, whom she even emulates his Santoryu style during the fight with Mr. 1), she truly believes that Gems are stronger than any human. It takes the combination of [[spoiler: a dream version of Mihawk]] and Admiral Aokiji to make her realize how wrong she is.

** Garnet also falls victim to this trope, but nowhere near as severe as Pearl. She is far more open to the strength of humanity, but is still highly overconfident in combat.

** It is later revealed that they really are as bigoted as they seem in that they really only protect the earth because that's what Rose wanted, not because they wanted.

May also overlap with TragicBigot. See also NobleBigotWithABadge and BoomerangBigot. Compare GoodIsNotNice. May overlap with WickedCultured or FairForItsDay. May come off as AffablyEvil (or even FauxAffablyEvil) to the targets of his prejudice. Compare HatesEveryoneEqually, which describes a person who is not bigoted against a''particular'' demographic.
