Fantastic Racism: Stand-Up Comedy

  • Parodied with a fictional and very unsubtle children's story in Bo Burnham's stand-up act:
    The squares lived happily in their square houses, in their square yards, in their square town.
    But then, one day, a family of circles moved in from the west.
    "Get out of here, roundies!" shouted one of the squares.
    "Why?" said one of the circles.
    "Because this is a metaphor for racism!"
  • Martin Pearson has a rant about this in The Unfinished Spelling Errors of Bolkien (aimed at the producers of The Lord of the Rings movies):
    "What is this inability to put dwarves on screen?! SPECIESIST, THAT'S WHAT IT IS!"
