* Yet ''another'' of Poitier's movies, ''Film/ToSirWithLove'', has a biracial student who hates his black father for marrying his white mother, as he considers it the worst thing he could have done to her (the town is shown to be pretty racist, to the point where the class of white students Poitier's character teaches don't want to personally enter the house [[spoiler:to deliver a memorial wreath when the mother dies]], since a white person going into a black man's house would create immense gossip). Poitier himself seems to have feelings for a fellow (white) teacher, but the racial aspect of their relationship is downplayed. Subverted with Pamela Dare's attempt to win his affections, as he has no romantic feelings for her, but instead cares for her as a friend and student.

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 consquence 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.

* Some [[http://www.atlnightspots.com/cute-interracial-couple-cheerios-ad-provokes-controversy/ controversy]] was aimed at a recent Cheerios ad that featured the cute daughter of an interracial couple.
* In series of ads for Arnott's "Tim-Tams" chocolate biscuits, a guy and girl stumble upon a magic lamp, releasing a genie who grants them ThreeWishes. When Arnott's brought out Tim-Tams in dark chocolate, the genie took the form of a handsome black man who eyes the girl suggestively after the first two wishes lead to her boyfriend disappearing with a hot blonde. He's rather disappointed when she wishes for a pack of never-ending Tim-Tams instead.

* [[AvertedTrope Averted]] in ArchieComics with a dash of UnfortunateImplications; writer Matt Wayne tried to introduce a black love interest for Betty so that she could also have her own love triangle. Since he was portrayed as TheAce, the editor vetoed it and had him changed to be a white character. In another instance, writers got to vote on a new love interest for Cheryl Blossom. The black character won out, but when the "results comic" was finally released, the character had ''[[ButNotTooBlack much paler skin]]'' than he was originally designed with.
* Played with in ''Comicbook/ThePulse'', when a black nurse gives the white ComicBook/JessicaJones crap about having a black boyfriend. ComicBook/LukeCage later gets this from the new Power Man.

The movie was one of the first films to touch on the subject of interracial marriage seriously.

** Also covered extensively in [[Film/MalcolmX his biopic of Malcolm X]]. Malcolm is required to give up white women as a stipulation of his religion; before his conversion, he'd dated several.

* Deliberately averted in ''{{Hitch}}.'' Originally, Creator/CameronDiaz was supposed to play Hitch's love interest. However, when Creator/WillSmith got the role, they decided that this trope might come out to play. However, they also didn't want to cast a black actress for fear that the movie would be interpreted as saying that romantic pairings need to be intra-ethnic or that people would assume that it was a black movie. They finally decided on Cuban-American Creator/EvaMendes (who has been cast because of this racial gray-area more than once.)

* Played for ''seriously'' black humour in Creator/TomSharpe's farces of South Africa in TheApartheidEra. ''Literature/RiotousAssembly'' begins with the horror evinced by Kommondant van Heerden of the Piemburg Police Force, when he realises the pillar of respectable white society, Lady Hazelstone, murdered her black cook when he refused to continue having sex with her. It becomes not only a murder case but confronts the unspeakable horror of a white woman actually ''wanting'' to have sex with a Zulu. ''Literature/IndecentExposure'' sees the lunatic racist Liutnant Verkramp, placed in charge of the police, deciding to use aversion therapy to deter his policemen from raping black women [[note]] they are described as considering this to be a perk of an underpaid low-status job[[/note]]. Note Verkramp's priority is not the rape, but the fact white policemen are raping black women - a bigger crime in TheApartheidEra. The Nazi-refugee Dr von Blimenstein enthusiastically assists with the therapy. In her day job as psychiatrist, she deals with the sexually repressed neuroses and paranoia of white South African women, that one day the blacks will rise and rape every white woman they can, and, well, the blecks are so ''big'', aren't they? She clinically calls this "blackcock fever". She also dealt with a case where a zookeeper with an inferiority complex chose to measure his erection against the length of a poisonous Black Mamba. This did not end well.

Earlier, when a white woman is rescued after an Army raid on a Native American camp, people speculate that she was probably raped by them, then are disgusted when they learn that she willingly married one of them--"Any decent white woman would have killed herself before she lay down with a redman". When Dr. Mike herself is kidnapped by renegade dog soldiers, there is the same speculation and this does in fact nearly happen several times before Sully manages to rescue her. About the mildest example of this trope is the brief, mild flirtation between Colleen and one of the Chinese railroad workers.

* Exaggerated in the romantic comedy ''The Brothers.'' Bill Bellamy's character only dates white women after a nasty turn with a black ex, since he sees them as timid and docile. It doesn't help that the black women in his subplot (his mother and ex) are both racist, ball-busting harpies. The white girl comes across as ironically sensible; she defends herself against his ex, and calls Bellamy out on his bullshit when he chides her for being "no different" after the two ladies fight.
