* Likewise, James Joyce's ''{{Ulysses}}'' used the word "nigger" freely. It referred to "nigger lips" three times, for example. Ireland had virtually no non-white population, and people used the word with impunity.

* ValuesDissonance: The post-apocalyptic stories of ''Literature/{{Victoria}}'' were written recently, but by an, er, ''right-wing'' author. The aim of the heroes is to restore the social values of small-town early 20th century America throughout the land (with everything this entails for women and various "oppressed minorities"), and this is unambiguously presented as a good thing. They also use extremely brutal means bringing this about, up to and including nuking an American city, but of course this is always justified. Their mostly leftist enemies are treated with hatred, and/or contempt, throughout.

** The values dissonance peaks in the last chapters, when the good guys fight their extreme antithesis, a nation of [[LadyLand high-tech, LGBT-friendly Amazons]]. The latter are genocidal totalitarians themselves, but a liberal reader is still not entirely unlikely to consider them the relatively more sympathetic party. Following their victory, the heroes re-educate most of the survivors into submissive Christian wives, and sell the "incurable" ones as slaves.

* There's several complaints about MercedesLackey's Elizabethan novels, specifically the sexual relationship between the 15 year old Elizabeth and the much older Denoriel, and the attempted seduction of Elizabeth by her stepfather Thomas Seymour. Never mind that in the 1500s a fifteen year old female is old enough to already be a mother (per Shakespeare), and that Seymour [[TruthInTelevision did]] try to seduce Elizabeth.

* In ''Literature/MalazanBookOfTheFallen'' Karsa Orlong grew up with his warrior tribe far from civilazation and as a result has a rather bizarre view on many things society generally sees as acceptable. The Dissonance is both in-universe (with the rest of the cast that is) and with the fans, as Erikson deliberately wrote a large part of ''Literature/HouseOfChains'' from his perspective. He does get better as he undergoes CharacterDevelopment.

*** In ''Growing up Gracefully'', in the 50s Noel Streatfield points out that parents must teach their children that, while it is okay to sing this rhyme, they must never use the word in any other context.

** The Professor's casual dismissal of the idea that Lucy might be delusional, simply because she doesn't ''look'' mad, can now come across as pretty ignorant and insensitive about mental illness.

** The Professor's casual dismissal of the idea that Lucy might be delusional, simply because she doesn't ''look'' mad, can now come across as pretty ignorant and insensitive about mental illness. Of course Professor Diggory Kirke has very good reason to know that Narnia is quite real and so dismiss the idea that Lucy is deluded.

* The novel ''Killer'' by Creator/DavidDrake and Karl Edward Wagner, set in the Roman Empire, says: "That the strange Egyptian was wealthy enough to occupy an entire suite of rooms by himself did not excite half as much curiosity as did the scandal that N'Sumu lived there without a single slave to serve him."

* In ''Super-Frog Saves Tokyo'' By Creator/HarukiMurakami the protagonist is a debt collector. This is portrayed as a respectable profession which contributes to society, and a protagonist is a honorable man. Contrast with the portrayal of debt collectors in Western Media (e.g. ''Repo! The Genetic Opera'').
