* During the ''Armor Wars'' storyline, [[ComicBook/WarMachine Jim Rhodes]], a black man, impersonated [[Characters/SpiderManRoguesGalleryAtoH Electro]] in order to infiltrate [[ExtranormalPrison The Vault]] in order to help ComicBook/IronMan neutralize the Guardsman armors that used his technology. Max Dillon is white, so Rhodey had to wear makeup over the exposed part of his face, and then quietly pray to himself that a brother didn't catch him removing the costume and makeup.

* Any time Creator/DaveChappelle plays/impersonates/imitates a white person, it's always in the same calm monotone that says "I have nothing exciting about me because I'm ''extra'' vanilla." Chuck Taylor, the white news anchor that Chappelle plays throughout the run of [[Series/ChappellesShow his show]] gets whiter every time he appears. In one of the Lost Episodes, pictured above, he's ''literally white''.

* A ''Tank [=McNamara=]'' arc involved the "token white" on a major basketball team: terrible at the game, but they kept him because he might give hope to white children that someday they ''might'' be able to play pro basketball. Then his teammates decided he'd gone too long without a shower ... and his whiteness washed off.... When Tank interviewed him, and asked if the deception had been tough, he exclaimed, "God, man, ''you'' pretend to like the BeachBoys for six years..."

* Some say this is what MichaelJackson did around 1990 or so, which is why the cover of ''Dangerous'' didn't show much of his face. Worth noting that his chronic Vitiligo was the real reason he got whiter and whiter as the years went on. The plastic surgery however...

* In WebVideo/TheNostalgiaCritic, Malcolm once has to disguise as a white man in order to escape from a GenreSavvy Nostalgia Critic turned insane because of the miniseries based on Stephen King's The Shining. Thankfully, Malcolm manages to avoid being another victim of the BlackDudeDiesFirst trope, by putting on a rather impressive disguise with blonde wig, white shirt... he even reads a purely white book and listens to [[Music/MileyCyrus Wreckingball]]! Now that's dedication.
