* Like many prey animals in ''Disney/{{Zootopia}}'', rabbit Judy Hopps initially buys into the theory that predators are predominantly dangerous and might have savage, aggressive urges they are simply unable to control. But she assures her new friend Nick Wilde (a fox) that she doesn't see him that way because, "You're not like them." The fallout is quick and painful for her. Her attitude was foreshadowed much earlier with a more downplayed and comedic example, where she commented on how Nick was an 'articulate fella'.

** Trump also had a [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PQYOvDmWqjo spectacularly horrifying moment]] in front of the Republican Jewish Coalition where he spewed off a stream of stereotypes about Jews such as "good lawyers", "hard bargainers" and "good with money". In many ways, Trump's statements mirrored those of prominent antisemites - except that from Trump's point of view, these were '''compliments'''

** Khan's response (basically saying that he had no intention whatsoever of being an "exception" to a law which targeted every other member of his faith ''because of'' their faith,) made it very clear that he found this trope fully as offensive as one would expect.

* [[PoliticallyIncorrectVillain Divisive US presidential candidate]] [[UsefulNotes/DonaldTrump Donald Trump]] congratulated Sadiq Khan's election as Mayor of London in 2016 by claiming that Khan would be exempted from Trump's proposed ban on Muslims entering the United States. Trump has had a long series of [[RefugeInAudacity over-the-top comments and accusations]] and his congratulation of Khan indicated that Trump saw Khan as this trope.

** Interestingly, one of the books available in the game reveals that Skjor actually was quoting previous Companions: the same sentence was said about a previous Elven member of the Companions, who ended up becoming the first Elven [[TheLeader Harbinger]]. [[FairForItsDay Back then, this was the sign of a major improvement]], as Nords are well-known to be rather xenophobic, especially against elves. Skjor was comparing Athis to a previous Harbinger, so he really meant it as a major compliment, but this ended up sounding a bit racist in the recent context.

** Speaking of [[spoiler:Snape, it's possible that he viewed that he viewed his friend/crush Lily Evans (Muggle-born) as this during their Hogwarts years. During this time period, Snape also hung around many Slytherins, most of whom became Death Eaters and therefore did not share his (barely) enlightened views. Of course, given how Snape [[{{Jerk}} is more or less intolerant of ''anyone'']] who isn't Lily or Dumbledore, it's not really this trope, rather than ''You are the only one I actually like''.]]
* In Literature/{{Discworld}} book Discworld/{{Jingo}}, this comes up a few times. For example, Sgt. Colon says that a fellow who runs a Klatchian takeaway is "not bad for a raghead." (This may be PretendPrejudice, though, because Sgt. Colon eats there regularly anyway and while he believes absurd things about Klatchians he doesn't actually mistreat any.)

* In ''Literature/{{Animorphs}}'', Andalites are very prejudiced against the disabled, or ''vecols'', and expect them to live lives of quite isolation so as not to bring shame to their families. In one book, the main characters discover a famous Andalite AcePilot who was permanently crippled in his last mission and is hiding out on Earth. Ax makes bigoted remarks about him the whole book, and even gripes about having to rescue him, but in the end when they finally meet face to face he promises to "remember him as he was", or to pretend he died in battle instead of becoming a vecol. This is intended and taken as a great compliment.
* In ''A Grief Observed'', Creator/CSLewis's memoir of the aftermath of his wife's death, he mentions having told her once that his relationship with her felt more like his friendships with other men than any other relationship he'd ever had with a woman. She had to point out to him that it's a bit insulting if the highest compliment you can pay to a woman is that she's almost like a man, and asked what he'd think if she started praising him for his "feminine virtues". He was convinced.[[/folder]]

One of Jool's fellow Interions makes a derogatory remark about D'Argo being Luxan, and Jool tries to reassure him that Interions are just taught that Luxans are inferior. In response, D'Argo gives her an ArmorPiercingQuestion about what ''she'' thinks.
