* In the ''GURPS Alternate Earths'' AlternateHistory of Ezcalli, early exposure to Old World diseases from Carthaginian traders allowed Native Americans to develop resistance early, while the Roman Empire collapsed in infancy, leaving Europe open for Mongol-dominated Asia, Christian African kingdoms, and subsequent Aztec raiding fleets to plunder its squabbling villages for slaves.

* The Creator/ECComics story "Hate!", an all-American everyman who leads a mob to kill his Jewish neighbors by burning their house down finds out that he was adopted and that his real parents were Jewish. He then is victimized by his Jew-hating former friends.

* A variation in ''Film/CowboysAndAliens''; even though it is not the Native Americans doing the oppressing, the white Americans still find out what it's like to be completely outmatched by an invading army they could not have imagined and getting their people captured/wiped out and their land ravaged. The tie-in comic brings it to truly {{Anvilicious}} levels by having a white American loudly saying the aliens "can't do that just because they've got better weapons", and receiving a dirty look from a Native.

* It's mentioned in ''Series/TimeTrax'' that, in the [[=22nd=]] century, the OneWorldOrder has whites as a minority. Darien is once derogatorily called a "blanco" (Spanish for "white").

* In RayBradbury's 1951 short story "The Other Foot," the population of Mars is entirely black. Because the planet was colonized within recent memory, adults have memories of segregation and lynchings, and when the news arrives that a rocket manned by whites is entering the atmosphere, a furious mob gathers, planning to institute Jim Crow laws in reverse. [[spoiler:They are ultimately deterred when it's revealed that Earth has been bombed out after a nuclear war, and the story ends with the survivors settling on Mars and the hope of a new start for humanity.]]

* In ''WesternAnimation/UltimateSpiderman'', Spider-man travels to a {{Gender Flip}}ped world. Spider-girl is a bit disdainful of a boy taking on her title, there's a reference to Georgia Washington, and the female Green Goblin [[PoliticallyIncorrectVillain mocks Peter]], so it can be assumed that sexism went the other way in this universe.

Interestingly, both of these tropes combined means that the same people still discriminated against the same people throughout history (herstory?).

* In ''Manga/JyuOhSei'', the PenalColony planet of Chimera is controlled by four "Rings" (Night, Ochre, Sun, and Blanc) which are primarily divided by skin color. When Thor and Rai are sent there, the Blanc Ring is least powerful of the four, and thus the formerly pampered twins (who are about as white as one can possibly be without having Albinism) find themselves at the bottom of the social ladder.
** Furthermore, since men greatly outnumber women, women have free pick of mates and are regarded as more valuable. Their higher social status is somewhat theoretical though, since the series plays this out with some UnfortunateImplications.
* Arguably ''Anime/CodeGeass'', which involves Japan being occupied by the harsh Holy Britannian Empire, ironically mirroring ImperialJapan's escapades during WorldWarII.

When most writers want to write about discrimination and oppression, they stick to real-world examples -- after all, there are plenty of those. Some writers, however, wonder: "What if it were the other way around?" What if blacks had enslaved whites? What if India had colonized England? What if [[LadyLand women had all the power and men had to stay in the kitchen]]? And so on and so forth. There may be a semi-plausible AlternateHistory explanation for the switch, but just as often it simply is that way.

* Some claim that there is "reverse racism" by minorities against whites. [[RuleOfCautiousEditingJudgment Let's not get into whether they're right or wrong]].
