* The French movie "Qu'est-ce qu'on a fait au Bon Dieu" uses this early on. An upper-class, white Catholic family has four daughters, three of which have married an Algerian Muslim, a Sephardic Jew and a Chinese Taoist. The final daughter is in a relationship with a Catholic... who's black. The three brothers-in-law take pictures of the fiancé with an attractive woman outside a hotel while in Paris, blissfully unaware of the hypocrisy of assigning stereotypes. When they show the sister the pictures, she asks what the hell is wrong with them, that's his ''sister''. They genuinely apologize to him and do what they can to reconcile the families (as the fiancé's father is as opposed to his daughter marrying a white girl as her father to having a black guy).
