Added DiffLines:

* The ''[[Series/TheTwilightZone1959 Twilight Zone]]'' episode "The Big Tall Wish", made in 1960, is arguably the ''first'' episode of an American TV series to pass this test. The episode is about a boxer who wins a fight because of a little boy's wish. The boxer and the little boy are both black, as is the majority of the cast, but the episode is not about race at all.

* ''Manga/FullmetalAlchemist'' is based in Amestris, which is basically the FantasyCounterpartCulture of Europe. In addition to the normal ethnic Amestrians, we've got Xingese Lin, Lanfan, Mei, and Fuu; "black" Amestrians like Jerso and Paninya; Ishvalan Major Miles and Scar. [[spoiler:Also, if being ethnically Xerxian counts, we've also got Edward and Alphonse Elric, Hohenheim, and Father]]. Race, especially as it pertains to the Ishvalans, is significant, but the issue of "sovereignty" and "religion" are mixed in with it. Nobody cares that Lin, Lanfan, Mei, and Fuu are Xingese. The only exception is a throw-away gag about passports.
