* When Wrestling/RingOfHonor fans aren't logging in to argue against claims that the stars and bars wearing Briscoes being racists, they're doing so to shoot down claims that the Briscoes are trying to act black. On both subjects, Mark has said they have more black friends than white ones, who've apparently rubbed off really hard on Jay, since he gets the most accusations.

This trope has some similarities to {{blackface}}. The difference is that blackface is done to deliberately mock black people, while this trope is done out of admiration or [[ForeignCultureFetish fetishization]] of black culture. However, if it's not done carefully, this trope can appear just as insulting as blackface. Also see ModernMinstrelsy.

* In the ''Manga/DeathNote'' manga, some of Mello's dialogue was translated in this manner by some English translators, who felt that this was the best (or at least closest) translation to Mello's extremely informal speech pattern. Interestingly, he seems to adopt a (somewhat) more formal speech pattern (and thus loses this one in the translations) after he gets hurt in an explosion he created.

In more academic circles, this trope is usually called [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cultural_appropriation cultural appropriation]]. This happens when a member of one culture (usually a more dominant, powerful one) takes on some of the trappings of another culture, such as clothing, music, and religious or political symbols. This is usually done for the sake of glamor and exoticism with a very superficial understanding of that culture, resulting in the culture being commodified, sexualized, oversimplified, or caricatured. It isn't always a bad thing though as it can also garner interest in a deeper understanding of that culture or even become a long-standing tradition.

For example, some now longstanding Christmas traditions were shared with the various different pagan groups that cohabited the areas where the celebration of Christmas was popularized, though this is distinct from other examples, because the traditions were just as much Christian as they were pagan, as religions in the past would often co-mingle. This is seen prominently with Judaism, where many pagan idols and non-Jewish icons were found among predominately Jewish settlements.
