* Mocked in [[http://chainsawsuit.com/comic/archive/2008/03/26/strip-344/ this early strip]] from ''Webcomic/ChainsawSuit''. Apparently white people and black people make different sounds while eating, and simply ''pointing this out'' is the "greatest comedy ever" and will earn you a giant pile of money.

* ''Studio60OnTheSunsetStrip'' had a variation where two cast members go to see a black comedian that is supposed to be a rising star in the stand-up scene, hoping to add more diversity and a new viewpoint to the predominantly-white writing staff. Unfortunately, his act is nothing but black stereotypes and cliches, including outdated White Dude, Black Dude jokes, and they leave in disgust that he is just [[StopBeingStereotypical reinforcing the stereotype]].

* A part of the humor between Mario and Black Yoshi from ''WebVideo/SuperMarioLogan'' is that Mario is never certain what to do while Black Yoshi often has a bad or destructive idea that may or may not work in the end. Furthermore, as much as Mario gets annoyed with Black Yoshi, Black Yoshi often is treated as the more outgoing and powerful of the duo, where Mario is (prior to Rosalina's appearances) more of a coward who cries.

** Eddie had actually touched off some minor controversy with his ''TheNuttyProfessor'' remake, in which the Richard Simmons {{Expy}} (played by Murphy) was so convincing, people were accusing him of "reverse blackface."

Generally, [[NWordPrivileges only minority comedians]] really can get away with using this trope without massively offending people.

* ''InLivingColor'' made use of the trope. In one sketch, it lampshades the trope as one of the quintessential types of stand-up comedy, along with "Old Guy Who Complains About the Present", "Self-Deprecating Woman" and "Crazy Prop Guy".

* In an episode of ''GoodTimes'', J.J. dreamed that he'd been replaced by a white guy. Said white guy wanted eggs benedict for breakfast, wore a pullover sweater, and said things like "Surely you jest!".

* Creator/JimGaffigan has a variant making fun of his whitebread background, saying that when people see a black guy they think "Wesley Snipes, Creator/SamuelJackson", but when they see him they think "I gotta do my taxes."
