Not sure Moonlight deals with racism, homophobia more likely.
Maybe Gone With the Wind indirectly.
Dances With Wolves
Out of Africa.

I think race is major part of the story in West Side Story too.

I think in Dances With Wolves, Gone With the Wind, Lawrence of Arabia and Ben-Hur race is more indirectly addressed. Which movies get in depend on how the question is phrased. Asking whether a film is about racism is much different than saying its story has some racial overtones.
