* PlayedForLaughs in ''Literature/TheHateUGive''. Starr's friends from Garden Heights all claim that Chris is alright... for a white guy, anyway. Even Starr, who's dating him and loves him dearly, can't resist slipping in a few jokes of her own. Chris, for his part, is flustered at first, but still finds their teasing to be ActuallyPrettyFunny, and laughs, too.

* In ''ComicBook/RomVsTransformersShiningArmor'' several Space Knights tell Stardrive how lucky she is to not be a destructive monster like other Transformers. They're being sincere and are just InnocentlyInsensitive; their only knowledge of Transformers comes from biased secondhand accounts, so as far as they know the species is just a bunch of mindless [[KillerRobot Killer Robots]] and Stardrive is only nice because [[OrcRaisedByElves the Knights took her in when she was young]]. This means they also don't realize how much they're hurting Stardrive's feelings.

* ''Literature/TheHeartsWeSold'': The Daemon, along with most of his kind, doesn't think very highly of humans. (Not that he hates them or anything -- he just thinks of them as interesting but inconsequential at best, and annoying wrenches in his plans at worst.) The exception to this is the heartless troop, a group of human teenagers on his payroll. ''After'' they've proven themselves multiple times over. Dee, in particular, seems to be a human that has his respect.

* [[http://www.housepetscomic.com/2015/10/23/dogic/ This]] strip of ''WebComic/{{Housepets}}'' has this. Satau, a primitive dog, is questioned on how he can be so distrusting and prejudiced towards cats while still trying to rescue Grape, a cat, from danger. Satau responds that she "clearly has the ''spirit'' of a dog" and thus doesn't count. Tarot isn't impressed by his logic.

* Just like in the [[DragonAgeInquisition canon game]], in ''Fanfic/WalkingInCircles'', Solas praises Evelyn by saying that he can’t understand how can someone as wise and compassionate as her could exist while her “kind” are nothing like that. This, of course, pisses her off and she instantly calls him out on that.

** 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'''
