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 anyone ''in particular''.

Added DiffLines:

* ''TabletopGame/RocketAge'' makes it explicitly clear that all player characters are meant to be heroes, however, there is the Bigot negative trait, which gives negatives when interacting with people the character would look down on. [[DownplayedTrope downplayed]], however, as the designers also make it clear that if a player has this trait the games master should require them to buy it off as soon as possible, to represent their character growing into a better person.

This character will almost always [[HeelFaceTurn be totally redeemed in the end]] - and even if he isn't, it will still be acknowledged that he has his good qualities. Sometimes he is as sympathetic as such a character can be, only holding on to his prejudices due to a FreudianExcuse (his parents taught him to be this way, or he was once wronged by a member of the group he now despises). A distinct but closely related trope is the InnocentBigot, who honestly thinks he is ''not'' prejudiced due to ValuesDissonance, and is thus ignorant rather than a {{Jerkass}}.

* ''Podcast/WelcomeToNightVale'': [[spoiler: Town embarrassment, [[PrettyFlyForAWhiteGuy the Apache Tracker]],]] turns out to be this in the end. Deconstructed, as while everyone acknowledges his heroic actions, he's still considered a racist jerk.

This comes ''Series/AllInTheFamily'' is a decent man at heart who clings to a head outdated ideas and prejudices. A big part of the show is Archie's family showing him the errors of his ways. The difference between Archie and ''real'' bigots is especially evident in an episode where he meets the KKK.

* Dirty Steve from ''Film/YoungGuns''. He constantly harasses Chavez calling him a greaser and using Navaho as an insult, but in the final shootout he rides back to save Chavez getting himself killed instead. ( This also subverts the common, no longer racism because I was saved by a minority.)

Added DiffLines:

* ''Film/AllTheWay'' has Lyndon B. Johnson portrayed this way, dropping casual N-bombs in private while fighting tooth and nail to pass the Civil Rights Act of 1964. By contrast, Richard Russell, Jr. is shown to be repeatedly NiceToTheWaiter when around black service personnel, but fighting desegregation at every turn.
