Sure, why not? Isn't there a hair product for black women called "Dark and Lovely?" You can be tall, dark and handsome.

And how would "dark" apply...? As opposed to albino? Or would it refer to various degrees of blackness...? In that case I kinda doubt the darkest wins.

Sure. Why not? I've never associated that phrase with skin colour though. To me, tall dark and handsome meant the man had dark coloured hair. A Pierce Brosnan or a Wuthering Heights' Heathcliff sort of look.
