I always thought the canonical example was Octavia Butler. I remember hearing that one publisher went so far as to make one of her non-white characters bright BLUE - anything to avoid having a black person on the cover. I couldn't find any reference to that in a quick Google search, however, so perhaps it's apocryphal.
