Nobody lynches anyone anymore for interracial sexual relationships, obviously. Yet many of the USA's black women have to contend with the puzzling stereotype that they are all angry, unattractive man-haters - to the point that the news media [[http://www.feministe.us/blog/archives/2010/06/21/the-media-v-black-women-the-peculiar-case-of-the-media’s-obsession-with-unmarried-black-women/ actually run stories]] about why unmarried black women are unmarried.

* ''Series/TheWestWing'' plays hardball with this trope, with the relationship between Charlie, the president's aide, and Zoe, the president's daughter, but puts a twist on it. President Bartlett is genuinely unhappy that his daughter is dating a black man, but not because he dislikes the idea itself. He just knows full well that there will be plenty of others in the country who will absolutely hate the idea, and he's worried about the couple's safety. He's completely right. The relationship gets two people shot by white supremacists.

* ''Film/BlazingSaddles'' is the TropeNamer, with the name taken from a line dropped in a shenanigan Sheriff Bart and the Waco Kid pull to get the attention of a [[{{Pun}} kouple]] of Klan members. Bart has a fling with burlesque performer Lili von Shtupp--and judging by her dialogue when the lights are out, her attraction is at least partly due to his race.

** Well, there ''is'' the romance between Bart and Lili von Shtupp, but that was arranged by BigBad Hedy ([[RunningGag THAT'S]] ''[[SpellMyNameWithAnS HEDLEY!!!]]'') Lamarr, as Shtupp would serve as a HoneyTrap - [[spoiler: only for Bart to give her a SexFaceTurn, probably making it an example of this trope anyway]].
