I'm compiling a list of interracial and intercultural people, couples, movies, TV show characters, etc…. Help!

Please provide names and racial and/or ethnic makeup for each category. I will be especially grateful for those who provide obscure references that would be difficult for me to find without serious research. Thank you in advance for not telling me that Halle Berry is mixed race.

    Isabelle Tyler on the 4400 is the daughter of a black man and a white woman. (I believe the actress who plays her is also mixed-race--she certainly looks it.) Isabelle is *not* nice, and it's a sci-fi show. I'm linking you to a background page on that character.

    Richard Tyler, her father, has loved white women. The first time, he was beaten for it. The second one, the mother of Isabelle, died. There is a third one that he seemed to feel something for this season.

    Your question is not so clear, I guess.

    Hmmm...

    Did you know Captain Kirk was the first to engage in an interracial kiss on TV? He kissed the black crewmember, I forget her name.

    Mind you, Kirk could get pretty freaky with purple aliens or just about anything that came along...

    Oops, I got kind of sidetracked.

    Anyway, good luck with your research.

    New York Yankees shortstop Derek Jeter is of mixed race. And, of course, Tiger Woods, the golfer, is multi-racial, and I think his wife is white.

    Governor Jeb Bush of Florida's wife is from Mexico.

    As for differing cultures, Anne Meara and Jerry Stiller, performers and parents of Ben Stiller, are Catholic and Jewish respectively.

    The late John Lennon, white, and his wife Yoko Ono, Asian. Ditto Woody Allen and his current wife, Soon-Yi Previn (the Asian-born [bio parents were Asian] adopted daughter of Andre Previn, a Jewish, German-born naturalized American citizen and Mia Farrow, a Catholic American woman -- phew!).

    This from Wikipedia about an amazing man, Senator Barack Obama of Illinois:

    Barack Obama was born at the Queen's Medical Center in Honolulu, Hawaii to Harvard University-educated economist Barack Hussein Obama, Sr., a native of Kenya. His mother is Shirley Ann Dunham, of Wichita, Kansas. At the time of Obama's birth, both his parents were students at the East-West Center of the University of Hawaii at Manoa.

    Of his years in Hawaii, Obama has written, "The irony is that my decision to work in politics, and to pursue such a career in a big Mainland city, in some sense grows out of my Hawaiian upbringing, and the ideal that Hawaii still represents in my mind."

    When Obama was two years old, his parents divorced. His father eventually returned to Kenya, and he saw his son only once more before his death in 1982. Ann Obama then married his stepfather, Lolo Soetoro (d. Mar 2, 1993), another East-West Center student (MA Geography 1962) from Indonesia. In his early childhood while growing up with his mother, Barack used the name 'Barry'. The family then moved to Jakarta, where Obama's half-sister Maya Soetoro-Ng was born. When Obama was ten he returned to Hawaii under the care of his grandparents, (Madelyn Dunham) and later his mother, for the better educational opportunities.

    Amond characters on shows, in the sitcom The Jeffersons, Roxie Roker (a black woman, real-life mother of singer Lenny Kravitz), played Helen Willis, opposite Franklin Cover as Tom Willis, her white husband.
