Check out this excellent scene from Guess Who’s Coming to Dinner. Its a very bold movie for its time (1967) and it was shot when interracial marriage was still illegal in 17 States in the US. The movie was nominated for 10 Oscars including Best Picture and Best Director and won two Oscars which included Best Original Screenplay and Best Actress. Its directed by Stanley Kramer the same director who directed Judgement at Nuremberg.

This is the final scene of the movie. So if you plan to watch this movie you may want to avoid this scene.

Here is the scene where Sidney’s character says that Joanna “feels that all of our children will be president of the United States and they’ll all have colorful administrations.” and he says that she is optimistic and that he will settle for Secretary of State. Spookily a child of an interracial couple who met in Hawaii is now the President of US.
