* Website/FourChan in general, while it does use enough N-words to make everyone in ''WesternAnimation/TheBoondocks'' blush. Most (If not all of them) don't genuinely have issues with black people. They have also gone after white supremacists like Hal Turner.
** The same goes for "faggot". Most of the time it's used, it's just a generic insult that has very little if anything to do with homosexuality. Meanwhile, "-fag" mostly gets used as a suffix to describe someone's particular tastes or obsessions (for example, [[UsefulNotes/PCVsConsole PCfags and consolefags]]).

* ''Anime/CodeGeass'': Gino Weinberg is a nice, cheerful guy who really likes the idea of Britannia being a brutal, racist dystopia. He's still very good friends (maybe [[NoSenseOfPersonalSpace too]] [[HoYay good]]) with Suzaku, who is Japanese, the persecuted minority group in the series.

* Baron Helmut Zemo from Creator/MarvelComics was the son of a Nazi and very much a racist and supremacist. That didn't stop him from having people of other ethnicities and races on his super-villain teams. Compare this to how he spoke about ComicBook/CaptainAmerica's black partner, Falcon, or his Jewish (and gay) friend, Arnie. To cement the irony, he even has a French guy on his team at least once. And his father, a full-blown Nazi, once had a Chinese[[note]]Though given that Hitler himself strongly considered an alliance with China before opting to side with Japan instead, this could be seen as entirely in keeping with Nazi ideology.[[/note]] villain, Radioactive Man, on his team of super-villains (later, Helmut would have the same, now-reformed man on one of his heroic teams as well). Eventually, during his very rocky proto-redemption (he was really just an AntiVillain and not a real good guy), he slept with a Jewish teammate who was "secretly" trying to stop his EvilPlan.

* ''ComicStrip/TheBoondocks''. Uncle Ruckus. Although he can basically be described as a black Klansman, Ruckus sure does spend a hell of a lot of time with Robert Freeman.

* ''ComicBook/JusticeLeagueElite'' communications and intelligence expert Naif al-Sheikh complains repeatedly that he hates Superheroes, Women, and anyone else that tests his rather limited patience. The fact that his best friend Vera Black is a white, female, punk rocker ex-supervillain mean such complaints end up falling rather flat however, especially since he eventually ended up getting himself arrested because he couldn't bring himself to harm her.

** Also, [[spoiler: having his family terrorized by ''actual'' white supremacist misogynistic skinheads]] makes him realize that he's not as racist as he thought he was.
* In the ''{{Dragaera}}'' stories, Vlad Taltos hates Dragaerans and becomes an assassin so that he can get paid to brutalize them. However as time goes on, he realizes that almost all of his genuine friends are Dragaerans, and he feels alienated from most of his own kind. This only gets worse over time, as he starts to learn that [[HumansAreBastards humans can also be bastards]].

* In the ''Literature/{{Animorphs}}'' special book ''Visser'', Visser One displays this towards humans during her trial. Given the flashback format, it's pretty transparent (even to the tribunal, which is able to see her memories).

Added DiffLines:

* An episode of ''WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons'' sees Bart going over to France, and in his place, his family hosts a young boy from Albania. When he arrives at school, Adil earnestly informs his new classmates that officially, he is required to hate them (Albania at the time was still a communist dictatorship), but he does not feel that hatred in his heart.

Added DiffLines:

* The title character on ''Series/{{House}}"' is a PoliticallyIncorrectHero to begin with, but he plays it up strategically. In one episode he distracts a Roma patient's family from interfering in his tests by loudly using the term "gyp" within earshot of the father.

:: In another episode, when he wanted a favor out of Kyle, he denied ever having mocked Kyle for being Jewish. We were promptly treated to a thirty-second montage of all the times in the show Cartman had insulted him by calling him a fucking Jew. Also, earlier...

** The same goes for "faggot". Most of the time it's used, it's just a generic insult that has very little if anything to do with homosexuality. Meanwhile, "-fag" mostly gets used as a suffix to describe someone's particular tastes or obsessions (for example, [[PCVsConsole PCfags and consolefags]]).
