Kermit the Frog sang "It's Not Easy Being Green", but it wasn't, for once, a metaphor for racial inequality, it was about general self-acceptance.
However, when Gregory Maguire in Wicked wanted to make the Wicked Witch Of The West a sympathetic character, presumably out of a Philip Pullman like hate for traditonal morality, he made her a victim of anti-Green prejudice, as Mark Steyn mentioned in a review of the stage play—see It's Not Easy Being Green, Or Wicked Either.

He's riddled with self- loathing, as he periodically confesses to us. Fortunately, an adorable little girl, Cindy Lou Who, has decided that the Grinch is just a big old lovable softie underneath..."

In any event, as far as I know, there is absolute no prejudice against green people. Star Trek proved that:
