** The term has also been used positively, along with spawning several slam parody bands with an exaggerated "wigger" aesthetic, including New Yorkment, FrogKill, Publikk Enema and [[SesquipedalianLoquaciousness Engutturalment Cephaloslamectomy]]. "The Defend Wigger Slam Group," a {{Facebook}} group housing over 500 members, frequently lampoons wigger cliches found in slam death metal bands while members of noted slam bands join in on the lighthearted fun. However, WakingTheCadaver vocalist Don Campan, [[http://www.metalsucks.net/2009/05/13/waking-the-cadaver-declares-metal-inquistions-sergeant-d-is-an-internet-fagit/ did not take as kindly]] to his band being described as wigger slam.

* Agon of ''{{Eyeshield 21}}'' dresses and behaves somewhat like a gangster, though he atleast has the sense not to talk like one. Still, even by Eyeshield standards, he looks rather silly with his long dreads, gold chain, and baggy pants.

** subverted, dragged round the room and thrown out of the window on ''RichardAndJudy'' - "is it 'cos I is black?" - you'd think an experienced presenter would have more sense...
** Ali G acts just like a stereotypical Indian /Pakistani teenager from the Staines/Slough (a couple a miles west of [[LondonTown London]]) area where he is supposed to be from. Most British viewers, however, simply seem to view him as a stereotypical "chav".

* Phineas of WesternAnimation/PhineasAndFerb tries to sound "street" in one episode by peppering his speech with the word [[GoshDangItToHeck dang]]. He comes off sounding more like a hillbilly than a gangsta. Ferb on the other hand raps pretty good considering the constraints of a Disney cartoon and the fact Ferb is usually TheSilentBob.
** Of course, [[NonSingingVoice that's because they hired professional rappers to voice him]].
