Though it's no big deal in most of the world, there are still some parts - e.g. South Africa, the USA - where black-white ethnic relations are troubled and this trope actually comes into play. In RealLife, black man/white woman couples are pretty common and there are a variety of views on what this kind of relationship should or does entail. White man/black woman pairs don't get as much attention (positive or negative) perhaps because they are less common, at least in America, though the gap appears to be narrowing. South Africa and The USA have had a serious DoubleStandard when it comes to this gender divide, as a direct consequence of Apartheid and the USA's Jim Crow laws (and slavery before that): many white men had black slave-mistresses, and this practice was generally accepted or at least tolerated. The reverse-gendered version, of a free woman loving a male slave, could result in death for the (African) slave and the public shaming (and possible death) of the free woman. When slavery gave way to Jim Crow and Apartheid, this bias remained - the chief difference being that before Apartheid, a white-woman-black-man couple would be lynched by the authorities whereas during apartheid they would instead be lynched by family/friends/neighbors whom the authorities couldn't be bothered to prosecute for murder.

* An episode of ''Franchise/LawAndOrder'' featured a white girl killing her black boyfriend, and claimed he tried to rape her when she was arrested. It later came out that her father was a racist, and had previously broken her arm for going out with a black guy in high school.

What ultimately made her snap was that her beau, who was tired of keeping their relationship a secret, threatened to break things off with her if she didn't come out about it.

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.
