* Another Native American example in the MiniSeries ''Children Of The Dust'', where the Native American boy taken in and raised by a white family falls in love with the daughter. Her father is ''not'' pleased, but not because of racism, as he loves the boy as if he was his own son, but because he knows that society (1800's Middle America) will never accept it. Indeed, the series concludes with the young man's death, [[BittersweetEnding but not without leaving her pregnant]] with [[SomeoneToRememberHimBy their son]].

* ''Film/LiveAndLetDie'' The black villain Kanaga is enraged that Bond has seduced his mistress Solitaire, outright stating that ''he'' was to be the one to take her virginity. The racial difference adds some serious unfortunate implications to the typical "Bond rescues the DamselInDistress" situation.

* In ''Far From Heaven'', a lonely woman falls in love with her African-American gardener, sparking immense gossip when the two are seen together--her husband hypocritically blasts her for the scandal she's brought on their family, conveniently overlooking his repressed homosexuality (the movie is set in the 1950s, when ''both'' things would have been extremely controversial). The fling is over before it can even begin, thanks to both of them being aware of the disastrous ramifications.



** Said character, Dr. Cleo Finch, was herself the result of such a union. And so was Kem Likasu (Carter's wife).
** Subverted with Jing-Mei Chen (she's Chinese) and the father of her baby, and later, Dr. Pratt.
** In the middle of a Christmas episode, Kerry excitedly shrieks "Mlungisi!" and throws herself into the arms of a handsome African man, kissing him passionately, much to everyone's astonishment (though this is more because her behavior is in stark contrast to the uptight personality she's displayed thus far rather than the racial difference). She later plays out a same-sex version of this--her second girlfriend and eventual wife is Hispanic and the woman she moves to Miami with when she decides to resign from the hospital is African-American.



* ''Series/ADifferentWorld'''s Colonel Taylor's ex-wife is white (we never see her, but it's revealed through dialogue). Freddie is also the result of this type of union.



*** Jesse and Jenny actually played out a platonic version of this, even once being ranked as one of "The Greatest Romances That Never Were"

*** Jesse and Jenny actually played out a platonic version of this, even once being ranked as one of "The Greatest Romances That Never Were" Were". It's been speculated that the racial difference and each being part of their own SuperCouple are the only things that kept the writers from making their relationship romantic.
