* 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]].

* In ''WesternAnimation/AquaTeenHungerForce Colon Movie Film for Theaters'', when two government agents shoot a time-travelling Abraham Lincoln, who's covering the Teens' escape in a wooden rocket ([[MakesJustAsMuchSenseInContext doesn't make much sense in-context, either]]), they suddenly find themselves tied to a horse-cart with a black slave driver cracking a whip at them.

* The Amazons are a gender-flipped warrior race where the men are lucky if they end up as slaves and aren't killed right out after they were used for sex for propagation. And the women have to remove a breast so it doesn't get in the way of their bow. So everything is worse when women rule.
