Should we delete the last example?

It says no real life examples, but there is one here.

Aye. Removed it.

Okay, I know the examples of racial epithets are neccesary for examples here, but I can't believe someone would actually type the "n" and "k" words here...that's really offensive.

Can you point out where the problem occurs, a brief skim of the page only reveals the words as used to illustrate the definition of the trope or as part of a quote. Also I see you've done a bit of Bowdlerising of a quote (Blazing Saddles), that really isn't done and can be considered Wiki Vandalism. I suggest you undo it.

I saw the page image. I suppose this is what they meant when they said they'd have cookies on the Dark Side.

I realize this page is VERY dead, but I can't resist: I laughed at those swasticookies.

I'm not particularly fond of the trope immage. I have no idea who settled on this, and I'm even more puzzled as to how the heck did anyone think this is a fitting immage. It does nothing to illustrate the trope, unless we enforce the notion that the swastika is a universal symbol of racism, wich is more or less unfounded. If we regard the swastika as a Nazi symbol the most we can gather from it is that the lady is a fan of the Third Reich, which still doesn't necessarily imply racism.

Regarding the Bringing Down the House example, not sure how it plays in context (haven't seen the movie), but negro spirituals is actually the technical term for that style- see here. Presumably, it's one of those things like the NAACP, named before it was offensive.
