Lampshaded: "Why do they only go after the white women?"
Invoked: Alice specifically looks for a black guy, being bored with white guys.
Exploited: Jeff is a voyeur with an interracial fetish, and tries to get Bob and Alice together so he can surreptitiously watch.
Defied: "Nope. Not gonna date a white girl. For all I know, her daddy's a Klansman."
Discussed: "Hey Bob? How come I always see you with white girls?" "How come I see you in trees with binoculars?"
Conversed: "Why is Bob always dating white chicks?" "Well, either they wanted to portray a realistic drama of interracial relations, or they only wanted to hire enough minorities to satisfy quotas."
Implied: Bob is seen looking suggestively at white women several times.
Deconstructed: Alice's dad is a huge racist. He doesn't like the idea of his daughter dating a black man, and immediately assumes Bob is a rapist-murderer. The conflict eventually culminates with Bob dead and Alice's dad in prison.
Reconstructed: As above, but Bob and Alice stand together and give Alice's dad a "The Reason You Suck" Speech that doesn't necessarily change his view outright, but makes him realize that they do actually love and care for each other. He says he'll still kill Bob if he knocks her up, and everybody laughs.
Played For Drama:
Bob and Alice are star-crossed lovers.
Bob, Alice or both are victims of anti-miscegenation militants.
