Alice accuses Bob of discriminating against/being prejudiced towards group X, and Bob denies it, by pointing out "Some of my best friends are X's". Usually played for HypocriticalHumor, as if having friends of a particular racial/ethnic group makes them not racist. Said friends are rarely ever present to speak for themselves and, therefore, can neither defend or criticize whatever it was that earned Bob the accusation of prejudice. Besides, being a member of group X ''yourself'' [[BoomerangBigot will not necessarily preclude]] [[YouAreWhatYouHate your being prejudiced against group X]].

* In ''Series/Brooklyn99'', Peralta correctly deduces that Captain Holt's husband, Kevin, doesn't like cops. Kevin's defense, naturally, is that he's married to one, but this is Peralta's point--it would be hard for Kevin ''not'' to dislike them when he's spent twenty-five years watching other cops disrespect and exclude the man he loves for being black and openly gay.

* Subverted in an Imran Yusuf joke: "Some people get annoyed at me for making jokes about [[ArabIsraeliConflict the situation in Israel and Palestine]], they accuse me of being an antisemite for making jokes criticising Israel. I always tell them, 'You know who my best friend at school was? He's a ''real'' antisemite, I'm an absolute amateur compared to him!'"
