* The webcomic [[http://www.white-noise-comic.com/comic/6-6 White Noise]] is one of the many series that makes use of FantasticRacism as a metaphor for RealLife racism but just like ''Literature/{{HarryPotter}}'', it shows a long history of it and how it has affected people. Furthermore, it manages to show how it hurts ''both'' sides of the issue with monsters being arrested and treated with discrimination out of humans' blind fear and in turn, humans being seen as distrustful and [[HumansAreTheRealMonsters unchangeably evil]] by monsters due to the discrimination.

** An example of the impact it had: one of its members [[HeelRealization realized]] how bad TheKlan was ''when he saw his kids playing with their dolls as Superman fighting the Klan''.

*** ''[[http://www.cracked.com/blog/6-reasons-trumps-rise-that-no-one-talks-about/ How Half of America Lost its Shit]]'' says that the reason so many are buying into DonaldTrump's hollow promises of "make America great again" is that for most of FlyoverCountry, America ''really isn't great'' for them; small towns can't recover from poverty as easily as cities can, the gap between rural and urban life is far bigger that most people realize, and their legitimate problems and good values are ignored by the liberal media in favor of writing them off as good-for-nothing rednecks. It also points out that Trump and his supporters, despite giving others every reason to brush them off as ignorant and destructive, are NotSoDifferent from the people the other side celebrates elsewhere.

** The entire run of ''{{Transmetropolitan}}'' was a big, long, anvil about the importance of standing up for The Truth and speaking out for what you believe in, regardless of the personal consequences; and the evils of complacency and blindly accepting authority. Making the character who most embodied these principles a self-proclaimed bastard further emphasizes the already subtle-as-a-sledgehammer point.

** ''VisualNovel/KatawaShoujo'' has a different aesop for each girl's path, as well as a couple over-arching ones for the game as a whole, and while they are varying degrees of {{Anvilicious}}, pretty much all of them needed to be dropped.

--> '''Science Teacher''': “The old, outdated hoaxes or mistakes were proven to be hoaxes and mistakes NOT by Creationists but by … SCIENTISTS! That is what’s great about REAL science: When we make mistakes, we CORRECT them. We do NOT try to fit things to a prejudiced notion. That is what ‘Christian Scientists’ and ‘Creationist’ do. ‘Christian Science’ is an oxymoron, my friend!...In the Bible, Jesus clearly states that if you believe in Him, that you can drink poison and not get sick (Mark 16:17). Wanna drink this glass of Drano and prove your faith?”

* ''Foo.ca'' redid the anti-evolution [[ComicBook/ChickTracts Chick Tract]] ''Big Daddy'', and created [[http://foo.ca/wp/chick-tract-satire/whos-your-daddy/ Who's Your Daddy?]]. In it, the science teacher (calmly and respectfully, unlike in the original tract) breaks down every fundamentalist argument made by the zealot student against evolution as BS, and drops a solid aesop about why "Christian" science is a crock, and how messed up extreme fundamentalism really is
