* This is an important subplot of ''Film/ABronxTale''. Calogero, a teenager from an Italian neighbourhood in the Bronx falls in love with Jane, a black girl from his high school. Their relationship remains a difficult topic; C keeps it a secret from his friends because they're all viciously racist, and he gets a bottle thrown at his head by a black teenager when he ventures too far into Jane's neighbourhood. C's father is a ''lot'' less racist than C's fiends, though he says he doesn't believe in interracial relationships. Interestingly, C's mentor Sonny (a mob boss) actively encourages C to pursue it.

* In ''Film/DarkBlue'', police officer Bobby Keough strikes up a relationship with Beth (unbeknowst to him, also a cop), which his racist partner Eldon Perry harasses him over.
* PlayedForLaughs in ''Film/NationalSecurity'', where Hank (SteveZahn), a former cop, and Earl (Creator/MartinLawrence), a security guard, team up (reluctantly in the former's case) to take down the bad guys. Their rivalry stems from the fact that, the first time they met, Hank thought that Earl was a car thief (Earl locked his keys in the car), which resulted in Hank being falsely accused of beating Earl (he was swatting a bumblebee, and Earl's swelling was due to his allergies). Earl agrees to help Hank get his ex-girlfriend back, who broke up with him because of this. However, when Earl finds out that Hank's ex is black, he immediately goes back on his deal. When Hank confronts him, Earl explains that he is strictly against interracial relationships. A little later, Hank witnesses Earl hitting on a white woman, causing Earl to amend his earlier statement to this trope (i.e. it's ok for a black man to date a white woman but not the reverse). In the end, though, Hank ends up proving to his ex that he's innocent (well, Earl does by freaking out over a bumblebee in her presense) and gets back with her.

* Averted in ''Film/MysteryMen''. The Shoveler is white happily married to a black woman. No one ever makes this an issue or brings it up.

Dr. Nicholas Garrigan is attracted to Idi Amin's third wife Kay from the moment they meet and they eventually begin an affair--''after'' Garrigan has become aware of how much of a murderous psychopath Amin is ([[AlcoholInducedStupidity he was drunk at the time]]). Making matters worse, Kay eventually becomes pregnant knows that now her adultery is certain to be discovered--Amin stopped having relations with her after she gave birth to an epileptic son, and even if not, as Garrigan is the only white man in Amin's circle, it will be immediately obvious that he's the father.

* In the first level of ''VideoGame/BioShockInfinite'', you witness a black woman and white man be led onto a stage to be executed. Their crime? Being romantically involved. Luckily, if you attempt to throw the baseball at Fink, and you defeat the guards around the stage once you are revealed to be the "False Shepard", they will be spared. They appear at a later level to thank the protagonist for his heroism. Attempting to throw the ball at the couple however will have Fink's assistant at the later level thank you instead, [[FridgeHorror leaving the couple's fate unknown]].

Added DiffLines:

** Although that's really about a slave owner raping his "property," so it may not quite fit the trope, since it's not a consensual relationship.

Another possible issue that might pop up is the idea that there are few available black men (because they are in jail, dead, gay, or [[DoubleStandard dating]] [[WhereDaWhiteWomenAt white women]]) and so white men are all a black woman can get.
