** 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'''

* In ''Literature/{{Animorphs}}'', Andalites are very prejudiced against the disabled, or ''vecols'', and expect them to live lives of quiet 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 throughout the whole book and even gripes about having to rescue him. But in the end, when they finally meet face to face, Ax promises to "remember him as he was", or to pretend the pilot died in battle instead of becoming a vecol. This is intended as and is taken as a great compliment.[[/folder]]

-->"Judge Pyncheon was unquestionably ''an honor to his race''. He had built himself a country seat within a few miles of his native town, and there spent such portions of his time as could be spared from public service in the display of every grace and virtue--as a newspaper phrased it on the eve of an election--befitting the Christian, the good citizen, the horticulturist, and the gentleman."

* Averted in [[NathanielHawthorne Nathaniel Hawthorne]]'s [[https://books.google.com/books?id=vWxMAAAAcAAJ&pg=PA17&lpg=PA17&dq=nathaniel+hawthorne+honor+to+his+race&source=bl&ots=pmjAWnXOZM&sig=uy4ZOOh4lBVgqQ7aT2wVaWbDiSE&hl=en&sa=X&ved=0ahUKEwiHncHdlvPVAhVIziYKHaBuC-YQ6AEIJjAA#v=onepage&q=race&f=false The House of Seven Gables]].

-->"As for Matthew Maule's posterity, it was supposed now to be extinct. For a very long period after the witchcraft delusion, however, the Maules had continued to inhabit the town where their progenitor had suffered so unjust a death. To all appearances, ''they were a quiet, honest, well-meaning race of people'', cherishing no malice against individuals or the public, for the wrong which had been done them; or if, at their own fireside, they transmitted, from father to child, any hostile recollections of the wizard's fate, and their lost patrimony, it was never acted upon, nor openly expressed."
