"Supernatural" gets points for accelerating this unspoken movement.

That sore point is central to "Something New," a romantic comedy currently in theaters, about a tightly wound professional black woman (Sanaa Lathan) overcoming her reservations about dating her white landscaper (Simon Baker).According to census statistics from 2000, black men are 2.82 times more likely to date outside their race than black women.Yet on television, you're more likely to see a black woman with a white guy -- think Aisha Tyler's Charlie with Ross on "Friends" -- or a black man with another minority woman.The pairings themselves play almost no role in the story line.He's black, she's white, or vice versa, or black and Asian -- whatever the combination, no other character thinks anything of it.
