There's a memorable episode in the second season of Master of None where the titular hero Dev (played by Aziz Ansari) is about to sleep with his love interest of the episode, Christine. As the pair are about to engage in the deed, Christine asks Dev to grab a condom from the figurine on her dresser.

I even pretended years ago to be an African, a half-caste African, but because of my light eyes I did not get away with it, but I dyed my hair black... I travelled on African buses.
