Nonetheless, interracial couples of color have been the inspiration for films such as “Mississippi Masala,” in which Denzel Washington plays a character who falls in love with a South Asian woman.Moreover, the comedy “Harold & Kumar Go to White Castle” paired the Korean-American protagonist up with a Latina love interest.Interracial couples, marriages, and relationships are more common today than ever before in the United States.
