One could to SLD the Parker Othello with Laurence Fishburne, quite a
hottie, which lots of R rated footage of the O and D in bed.

On the other hand, a number of major porn companies have decided not to
make any interracial films in response to Ashcroft's confirmed
nomination.

So perhaps here is greater sensitivity even in mainstream film studios
to interracial romances.  The romance in Save the Last Dance was awfully
chaste.
