Mike Figgis' 'One Night Stand' also had no problem hooking the very dark Wesley Snipes up with the very white Nastassja Kinski and not making it about race...it was just accepted.  And Snipes' was a successful commercial director with an Asian wife, again, race is not really ever brought up from what I remember.  They're just people.     Jeez, what the fuck happened to the 90s?
