* Some readers have identified Creator/HPLovecraft's Deep Ones as "water negroes," and their interbreeding with humans is often seen as an allegory for miscegenation. This is one of many examples of racism in Lovecraft's earlier works, who was often pretty outspoken in his beliefs.

** The Disc's dwarfs started out as a fairly positive parody of [[OurDwarvesAreAllTheSame generic fantasy dwarfs]] -- complete with a love of gold and rather touchy clannish attitudes, but honorable and reliable. Then, over the course of the series, their culture developed more and more parallels to real-world Jewish culture, notably a strong attachment to ''tradition''; there were [[WordOfGod hints]] that Jewish readers spotted the parallels before the author did himself, ironically given that [[Theatre/TheRingOfTheNibelung some older fantasies]] may have used dwarfs as ''hostile'', antisemitic parodies of Judaism. Although the novels' view of dwarfs (and by the analogy, Judaism) remained essentially positive, their culture was shown to include a bigoted, fundamentalist element that may have some resemblance to extreme Orthodox Judaism.

** The draenei also count to a certain extent, if you're familiar with history books (and not just WorldWarII). Like the goblins, though, they overlap with a wide range of real-world cultures.
