* Harry Turtledove likes this kind of irony and often uses it:

** In the ''Southern Victory'' series, the Confederate Goebbels expy is a Jew. At one point, a character muses that if blacks were not escapegoated for the CSA's problems it would probably be the Jews.
** In the same series, the rump United States joins the Central Powers and defeats Great Britain. This results in Quebec and Ireland (covering the whole island) becoming independent, CP-alligned republics, with Anglo-Canadians and Irish Protestants becoming second-class citizens in their countries.
** In ''The Disunited States of America'', the states broke away into separate countries due to the Constitution never being passed, as the weaker Articles of Confederation couldn't keep them together. The southern states, as you'd expect, remain oppressive to black people, although they eventually abolished slavery. This oppression caused black rebellions, and one in Mississippi was successful. The victorious black people there then treated the whites much as they had been earlier.

* In the dystopian future of ''Literature/TheForeverWar'', the protagonist is a relativity-time traveller, and upon one of his later returns to earth he finds that population pressure has made homosexuality the socially-acceptable choice. His subordinates--particularly the females--are creeped out, and behind his back call him "queer." He's understanding, realizing how they must feel about serving under a "sexual deviant."

* The Rwandan genocide was partially a result of this. Without getting into who was persecuting who at which time due to the RuleOfCautiousEditingJudgment, let's just say that the Tutsis used to be in elite positions, but then the Hutus engaged in revolutions, purges, etc. By the time of the genocide, the Hutus were trying to get rid of Tutsis and moderate Hutus.
** Averted with post-Apartheid SouthAfrica. There was the fear that the new regime would actively persecute white people with violence equal to those used by the Apartheid Regime. NelsonMandela went out of his way to make sure this did not happen and the Truth and Reconciliation Commission underscores just how far his presidency went to try and appease both white and black people. Many whites, however, believe that they are being discriminated against and persecuted now. [[RuleOfCautiousEditingJudgment Let's keep it at that.]]

* 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.

* 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.
