I think I know why we never see interracial commercials

I often wondered why we don’t see more black and white couples in commercials or on magazine covers in the US. After reading/watching the controversy over the cover Vogue magazine cover with Lebron James and the Brazilian model Gisele I can see why many companies would stay way from casting a black and white couple. They just don’t want to have a PR nightmare. The splitting of hair and reading between the lines for racial overtones seem to be a constant when it involves black people and white people…I see nothing wrong with the cover shot.
