* ''Series/{{NTSFSDSUV}}'': In one episode the team is assisted by Agent Booth Whitman, a hard-ass veteran CowboyCop with very old-fashioned attitudes. He arrested the 'bad guy', a NewAgeRetroHippie from the 1960s, for trying to give black people the vote. He also tried to stop women from enlisting in the NTSF. Trent Hauser--a not very dissimilar CowboyCop--just plain idolizes him, while Piper at first objects to his presence before she starts to like the attention he gives her. Deconstructed when he finds himself so at odds with the way the world has changed that he briefly sinks into depression before it's reconstructed when Piper convinces him that they desperately need men like him in a confused world.

* ''Film/TheSteelHelmet'' by Creator/SamuelFuller was made during UsefulNotes/TheKoreanWar and was controversial and daring for its time for portraying the American side in that war as a bunch of racists and hypocrites whose soldiers were held together by TeethClenchedTeamwork, who would commit ObligatoryWarCrimeScene and that the most competent and dependable soldiers were the Japanese-American and African-American who were totally cynical about how little their wartime service and bravery would provide them in civilian life.

** In a much later episode he was, unlike Reverend Lovejoy, perfectly willing to perform gay weddings, although he primarily did it for money.

** In a much later episode he was, unlike Reverend Lovejoy, perfectly willing to perform gay weddings, although he primarily did it for money. Also, while estranged from Marge, he was comfortable living with a homosexual couple in Springfield's Gay Village, although it was the only decent living soace he could find.

** Home straddles the line between this and InnocentBigot. He often comes across as culturally insensitive but he's very rarely malicious, and he will apologise if he realises that he's offended someone. The few times he has been genuinely hateful, such as towards a muslim family or undocumented immigrants, he is usually whipped up by his equally ignorant friends, or occasionally manipulated by the media or politicians.

** At the start of ''Film/ThePhantomMenace'', Padme is one by default. As most sources say, she along with most of the Naboo regard the Gungans as a barbaric and uncivilized species, and have treated them as inferior for most of their history. As a result, Boss Nass is reluctant to ally himself with the Naboo during the Trade Federation's invasion. Padme sees the error of this way of thinking, and when an alliance becomes crucial, she doesn't bother trying to make excuses for it; [[HumbleHero she simply kneels and pleads with him for his help.]] Fortunately, it works.
** In ''Film/AttackoftheClones'' Obi-Wan actually says "If droids could think, then none of us would be here". This is despite droids like R2-D2 and C-3PO showing undeniable proof that they have minds of their own.

** In ''Series/StarTrekTheOriginalSeries'', Spock frequently expressed his displeasure when Kirk told him something along the line that he was "becoming more human every day". Spock frequently referred to "annoying human emotions". In TOS, he clearly preferred not to be remined that he was half human.
** Dr McCoy was something of a NobleBigot, while Kirk harbored a lot of anti-Klingon racism.
