*** In the second game, there was the Brotherhood (the "dregs", mostly white), the Ronin (Japanese), and the Sons of Samedi (drug runners, mostly Haitian). Of course, this was primarily the ethnicity of the leadership: all three gangs had a lot of white members simply because that was who they could readily recruit in Stilwater.

*** The Third Street Saints were the sole group whose diversity extended to the upper ranks: in the first game, there was Julius (African-American), Gat (Non-specific Asian), Lin (Chinese), Troy (White) and Dex (Afro-Carribean). In the second game, there was Gat (again), Pierce (African-American), Carlos (Hispanic) and Shaundi (White), as well as whatever ethnicity was chosen for the player character from a choice of White, Asian, African-American, and Hispanic. [[EverythingsDeaderWithZombies Or zombie]]. In ''The Third'', however, most of your new recruits are white, with the exceptions of Zimos (African-American) and Angel (Hispanic).
*** And of course the last game features Asha, a British-Asian, in the Saints.

* In ''Film/PulpFiction'', Marsellus Wallace's gang seems to be very ethnically diverse; Wallace (Creator/VingRhames, so black), is in charge of Vince (Creator/JohnTravolta, so white) and Jules ({{Creator/SamuelLJackson}}, so black) (amongst others), and has connections with both black and white criminals.

* In ads for the 2005 ''Royal Rumble'', Wrestling/{{WWE}} [[JustForPun played on the double meaning of the word "rumble"]] by riffing on ''Film/WestSideStory'', with the ''Raw'' Superstars as the Jets and the ones from ''[=SmackDown=]'' as the Sharks. This was probably because at that time, ''[=SmackDown=]'' featured almost all the promotion's Latino talent: Wrestling/EddieGuerrero and his nephew Wrestling/{{Chavo|GuerreroJr}}, Wrestling/ReyMysterioJr, and Wrestling/{{Carlito C|olon}}aribbean Cool (who actually ''was'' Puerto Rican). However, the ''Raw'' gang, while mostly white, did include Wrestling/{{Batista}} (half-Asian, half-Caucasian), so WWE obviously weren't trying to be ''too'' literal.

** Amusingly, though, theatrical groups will often cast a Latino as a Jet or a Caucasian as a Shark if they have too many actors from one of those groups. One of the Shark girls, Consuela, is sometimes portrayed by a blonde actress, although it's not clear whether this is to evoke DarkSkinnedBlond.

* ''Series/TheWire'' features a smattering of white drug dealers in Baltimore's white neighborhoods, and they are mostly portrayed as [[PrettyFlyForAWhiteGuy posturing phoneys]], leading to Herc jokingly suggesting to Kima at one point that white gangbangers need their own version of Affirmative Action. "White Mike" is a higher level dealer who has contacts with the corrupt Stevedores' Union.

* ''Series/TheWire'' ''Series/TheWire'':
** The show
features a smattering of white drug dealers in Baltimore's white neighborhoods, and they are mostly portrayed as [[PrettyFlyForAWhiteGuy posturing phoneys]], leading to Herc jokingly suggesting to Kima at one point that white gangbangers need their own version of Affirmative Action. Compared to the difficulties the police have to deal with trying to bust professional, elaborate, and [[ProperlyParanoid deeply paranoid]] groups like the Barksdale Organization or Marlo Stanfield's crew, the white dealers are a walk in the park for them.
** This does not apply ''at all'' to the Greeks, an [[TheSyndicate international crime syndicate]] whose members mostly come from Southern and Eastern Europe, along with the Middle East. The group is mostly white but eschews street attitude entirely and are the single most successful criminal enterprise on the show. Even the major investigation into their smuggling, drug supplying, and human trafficking activities in season 2, which is carried out by some of the best cops in the city, fails to bring down the organization and only interrupts their activities for a week or two before they get right back to business.
** About the only white Baltimore drug dealer who isn't shown as a complete wannabe is Mike [=McCardle=], AKA
"White Mike" is Mike", a higher level dealer who has contacts with both [[GreaterScopeVillain The Greeks]] and the corrupt Stevedores' Stevedores Union.
