* ''Manga/JoJosBizarreAdventure'': Joseph Joestar hates Japanese people, and is shown smacking a guy just for being Japanese in the last page of Part 2. In his case, however, it's not about ethnicity - it's because ever since his daughter married a Japanese man, he almost never sees her.

In his case, however, it's not about ethnicity - it's because ever since his daughter married a Japanese man, he almost never sees her. Even then, it's an exaggeration, and he grows out of it anyway, since he shows no hate with all the Japanese people he interacts with in the next two parts, moreso the Japan-placed Part 4. Likewise, any genuine disdain would've been browbeat out of him by his grandmother, who averted this trope, notably, as the time periods we see of her own life were not kind to blacks, and yet she and Joseph treat the latter's newfound friend Smokey, an African-American in 1930s New York, as a dear friend.

** Peter's father Francis Griffin, a deeply-unpleasant man in general, has a special grudge against Lois for being non-Catholic. Among other things, he appended the "just married" sign on the back of the limo they left their wedding in with, "to a Protestant whore."

* Dr Briefs in ''WebVideo/DragonballZAbridged'' constantly spouts racism, sexism, homophobia, and every other far-right talking point, always with the same cheerful expression from his original kindly ''Anime/DragonBallZ'' incarnation. He's even a literal racist grandpa.

* In ''{{Series/ER}}'', one old lady once said to Benton that she is uncomfortable with a black doctor examinining her. Oh, and that lady? She was black, too.
* Played with in ''{{Series/Dollhouse}}'', where a RacistGrandma imprint was (for God knows what reason) put on Sierra, the doll portrayed by Nepali-Australian actress Dichen Lachman. Made funnier because it had a mix of FoeYay in it as well, also for God knows what reason.

** There's also Councilman Milton, who frequently makes racially insensitive remarks and was voted in on the promise that he would make the local baseball teams racially segregated again.

* Pop Pop from ''Series/ItsAlwaysSunnyInPhiladelphia'' is a former Nazi and believes that "Kikes" are stealing his stuff.
** In "Franks Sets Sweet Dee on Fire" the gang attempts to do an expose series at on old folks home. The first lady they talk to says that the one thing she dislikes about the place "is the blacks" leading Mac and the others to immediately end the interview rather than talk to a crazy old racist.

* Seen in a few deleted scenes from ''Disney/{{Zootopia}}''. An alternate version of the scene where Judy calls home after her first day on the force has Judy's grandfather declare "Foxes are red because they were made by the devil!". In another deleted scene from [[WhatCouldHaveBeen the original version of the story]], Judy takes Nick to her home and introduces her to the rest of the family; while the rest of her family is a bit suspicious of Nick, her grandfather is downright disdainful of him.

* ''Film/MontyPythonsTheMeaningOfLife''.
--> "I've worked in worse places, philosophically speaking. I used to work in the Académie Française, but it didn't do me any good at all, and I once worked in the library in the Prado in Madrid, but it didn't teach me nothing, I recall. And the Library of Congress you'd have thought would hold some key, but it didn't, and neither did the Bodleian Library. In the British Museum I hoped to find some clue. I worked there from nine till six, read every volume through, but it didn't teach me nothing about life's mystery. I just kept getting older, and it got more difficult to see, till, eventually, me eyes went and me arthritis got bad. And so now I'm cleaning up in here, but I can't be really sad, 'Cause, you see, I feel that life's a game. You sometimes win or lose, And though I may be down right now, [[CrowningMomentOfFunny at least I don't work for Jews.]]

Added DiffLines:

* Series/TheDrewCareyShow has a male example. In one episode, Drew writes a speech to one of the store's directors to show how well the store is doing, only for the director to highjack the speech and go on a racist and homophobic rant.
** In an earlier episode, Drew wanted to quit his dead end job, and asked his dad to talk to one of his buddies if he could get hired in one of their companies. They invited Drew, Lewis, and Oswald [[BrotherhoodOfFunnyHats to their lodge]] to talk about possible employment opportunities. Drew ultimately refused their offers because the members, old white men, spent their time in the lodge telling racist jokes.

While it's tempting to think that this will soon become a DeadHorseTrope, now that the youngest people who came of age before the mid-1960s are now in their seventies and the average life span for most Westerners is about 80, there is evidence that quite a few people actually ''become'' bigoted with age. Bitterness about growing old can cause certain people to develop a hostile attitude against most things or even everything in the modern world - ''[[FormerTeenRebel even of things that their generation helped to bring about in the first place]]''. For example, a recent poll (albeit a dubious one, since it took into account a ''very'' small sampling of the U.S. population) suggested that a surprisingly large number of ''Baby Boomers'' (now in their fifties at the youngest) are now uncomfortable with interracial marriage. [[StrawmanHasAPoint They may even simply change their minds based on life experience.]]
