* ''Series/TheFreshPrinceOfBelAir'' did this occasionally with Will's goofy white classmates/friends, but even these eventually disappeared and were replaced with black BeavisAndButthead style sidekicks, only one of which had any staying power. For the first half or so of the series, there was also the hopelessly out-of-touch white teacher. Later, one of his aunts became involved with a white man... who eventually became so accepted by the family that he could make jokes about ''Carlton'' being white.

* The casting in ''Theatre/{{Hamilton}}'' invokes this trope (and RaceLift) by calling for King George III to be played by a Caucasian man and nonwhite actors play all the other principals (who were historically white founding fathers, revolutionaries, etc.). Further reinforced by the music; George's oldschool Broadway/British Invasion-style pop songs clash with the musical's other hip-hop/R&B/jazz numbers, enforcing the idea that the colonies and the Old World have grown very different.
