* One episode of ''Series/AllInTheFamily'' has Archie invited to speak at a funeral of a co-worker who he, being [[PoliticallyIncorrectHero the kind of guy he is]], had been making anti-Semitic jokes in front of for ''years''. It isn't until the funeral itself that Archie learns the guy is Jewish. Clearly the guy was too polite to ever mention it, [[ActuallyPrettyFunny found the jokes rather funny]], or both. Still, Archie is at a loss for words.

The "blacks love watermelon and fried chicken" idea is a well-worn staple of stereotypical humor[[/note]] as a gift.

* The episode of ''YesDear'' where Jimmy became a housemate on ''BigBrother'' might qualify here. Although nothing offensive was said, when Jimmy asks the resident [[TwoferTokenMinority black, gay housemate]] his opinion on the attractiveness of a female housemate, he responds with "You know I'm gay, right?". Jimmy attempts to correct himself and restart the conversation by making a remark about one of the men's abs instead.

* In ''Literature/TheBabysittersClub'' series, this happens in the first chapters of several books as an attempt to introduce the characters to new readers. Some of the forgotten attributes are forgivable, such as the girls momentarily forgetting that Stacey is diabetic, but others are completely baffling, such as somehow ''forgetting that Jessi is black''.

* In ''Series/DowntonAbbey'', the Granthams hold the wedding ceremony for their cousins' daughter, who is marrying a Jewish man. One of the guests commends them for "putting on a brave face" in front of such ghastly race-mixing. Lady Grantham reminds her that she herself is half-Jewish; the guest slinks off, mortified.
