Let's see, there's Sidney Poitier in Guess Who's Coming to Dinner. Wesley Snipes in Jungle Fever. Ashton Kutcher in last year's Guess Who and now Sanaa Lathan in Something New. Then there are those whove done it in real life: Robert DeNiro, George Clooney, David Bowie, Tyra Banks, Whoopi Goldberg--just to name a few. What do they all have in common? They've all ventured to the other side...got down with the swirl...they've caught the fever for the flavor. Goldberg has dated a laundry list of Brads including Ted Danson, and it's a well-known fact that DeNiro has long liked his coffee black. These affairs are no longer forbidden, but there was a time when they were, and in Elton John and Tim Rice's musical Aida, it cost a smitten soldier and an enslaved princess from two warring nations their lives.
