Featured within the app are interracial couples, both hetero and same sex, kissing and holding hands. Both the film and the Love-Moji app are a great reminder that real love often transcends race and politics.

We are living in an era where it feels like very little political progress has been made for Blacks in America.

Not so much, as Weaver sees it.“Will Smith is popular for the same reasons that any actor or actress is popular: He’s good-looking, he’s charismatic, he’s a solid actor,” he says.

“It’s not about being a crossover star, it’s about being a star and white audiences like black audiences are able to like, identify with, and appreciate actors of all races.

In Childs’s research, white males, particularly of college age, were quick to exclude black women from potential relationships based on the assumption they would have nothing in common.“If your personal preference excludes an entire group it’s no longer a personal preference–it’s, at the very least, a racial prejudice,” Childs says.

“Sometimes people think interracial marriage is so much more common because they see interracial couples but there is a difference.

They find themselves drawn to each other as Sophie contemplates the end of a previous relationship and Alex considers a move back to his native London.

When you’re dating it’s more of an individual choice–people are more open-minded when it comes to dating because you might date different people that you would never marry. It’s not that necessarily the relationship wouldn’t work, it’s the outside pressures from both sides in terms of family expectations.”Television shows, advertisements, and film often reflect the dominant societal views–but it’s a flawed cycle: These industries continue to churn out what they think the public wants, namely whites with whites, and blacks with blacks.

Backlash often comes with on-screen interracial coupling (two words: Cheerios commercial) but the end goal for substantive diversity shouldn’t be clouded by a somewhat bigoted present.“You don’t hear complaints about representations of white people on television partly because you can’t really stereotype a white person on television–white people have all sorts of roles: They’re the happily married couple, they’re the criminals, they’re the cops. “It’s not about limiting representations and saying ‘this group should only be portrayed this way’–it’s that there are still so few interracial couples on-screen that the way they’re represented then becomes representative as how interracial relationships are. Somewhere along the way, Nicky’s scam goes sour and now not only his life is in danger, but Jess’s as well.

If there’s such high approval rates for black and white marriages, why haven’t we seen more of them?

“In the United States there’s significant racial prejudice and that plays out, not surprisingly, in dating preferences,” says Erica Chito Childs, an author and a sociology professor at Hunter College.

You could say that Smith has also already bridged the gap between black and white audiences.
