A Race Lift is what occurs when a character's race or ethnicity is changed in the creation of a derivative work, also known as Racebending, and in the case of non-white characters becoming white, whitewashing. Sometimes this is a method to try and keep things politically correct. People can't argue racism if you have a TokenMinority in the cast, but you usually run into [[UnfortunateImplications problems]] when you change a character who is originally a proud minority into a member of the majority group.

See also: BlackVikings, FiveTokenBand, TwoferTokenMinority, {{Mukokuseki}}, GenderFlip, AffirmativeActionLegacy. Often involves an AdaptationDyeJob. See GenderFlip when an adaptation changes a character's gender instead of race. See DivineRaceLift when gods are portrayed as a race different from their traditional representations. See FakeNationality when a character's ethnicity is meant to stay the same, but the person playing him doesn't have the same background.

Can come off as unfortunate implications, depending on the work. It can ''especially'' be UnfortunateImplications when a character of color is being cast with a white actor in the role, due to MonochromeCasting and the growing backlash against it. See the [[{{Analysis/RaceLift}} Analysis tab]] for more on the subject.
