    I would like to know what the consensus is on interracial porn. I want the perspective of African-American men and/or women. I want to know if you think it is racist. I would like different perspectives, including people who sometimes view porn in whatever shape or form.

    I have no problem with interracial porn. I am not one to date outside my race generally, but I have no problem watching it on TV. Sex is sex, and it all turns me on if it’s ‘straight’ porn.

    I have only thought of interracial (video) porn as being racist when its marketing (most noticeably on web sites and video boxes) directly implicates the black male performers as ravagers of ‘little white girls.’ Such ad copy has an undeniably racist connotation, invoking still-potent Reconstruction-era stereotypes about the black man being a savage beast who lives only to brutalize ‘innocent’ white womanhood. Both the idea of the black man as a sexual brute and the white woman as sexually pure by nature are the oldest racist notions used to render blacks animalistic and whites morally and mentally superior, but these notions are also tools for cultivating the interracial porn viewing audience. I think of it more as ‘using’ racism than practicing it, if that makes any sense.

    A longtime porn viewer may get bored watching the same type of people perform, and eventually venture into different genres, but to grab the attention of a person who may not be inclined to watch people who don’t all look like him having sex (and may even be vehemently opposed to it in ‘real life’) you have to use something that everyone knows (besides the bodacious body parts), if not understands, when they see it. I think the majority of interracial porn is produced for white viewers in general who are curious about what blacks’ bodies look like, and white men specifically who fantasize about catching, preventing, watching or being(!) black men raping white women (whether the viewers or performers would use that terminology or not).

    Heather, tell me: why would anyone consider sex between two consenting adults, no matter what the race/sex/beliefs of either one, racist? Be it filmed for later public viewing or in private, sex is sex, and I don’t see anything racist about having sex.

    I’ve seen some. My opinions about pornography have changed from the past, and I now consider all of it to be degrading in one way or another, but the interracial porn I’ve seen strikes me as degrading in a different way. It not only seems to treat sex as an animalistic act, devoid of any spiritual content, but also seems to play into all of the destructive stereotypes about black sexuality: Insatiable, wild, coarse, sex-machine black women, hugely endowed ‘mandingos’ whose greatest desire is to bed a white woman . . . you get the picture. So I guess I’d say that yes, it’s racist, or at least has racist overtones.

    There is interracial porn out there. As far as I’m concerned, porn is porn. Do you think it’s racist? And by your question, what exactly do you mean? Is it racist to have only one race represented in the act, or what?

    The quasi-violent terminology of the ad copy helps foster the idea that there is a bit of suffering to be had by white female performers (remember, the black male is little more than a well-hung beast to the porn marketer), and ‘rightfully so,’ as a white woman who willingly has sex with a black man can be perceived as a transgressor of the (once-written) rules of race relations–even as that transgression attracts a fantasizing audience. There doesn’t seem to be an element of pity or a manipulation of interracial fear when the males are white and the women are black–the guys are just blessed to be having ‘really hot sex’–they are not simultaneously ‘paying for it’ as their female counterparts are. Strangely, the videos I have watched don’t extend this ‘use of racism’ into the proceedings. In my viewing experience (limited by budget and other pasttimes), there doesn’t seem to be a racist demeanor in the sexual encounters as filmed. (Admittedly I might be missing something.) I don’t know anything about porn before the ’90s. I would assume it was more openly racist in the past like a lot of entertainment, especially behind the scenes.

    (Ironically, while racism can be used to directly market porn, one can ignore it and literally use his own form of…discrimination. I find myself watching interracial porn more than any other genre for two reasons: Some of it is better produced than a lot of all-black porn, and as far as ‘all-white’ videos… well, I don’t find white men’s bodies [OK, the knick-knacks] aesthetically pleasing–to say the least–so anything I watch has to have a brother in it!)

    A little more off the subject: Although I’m not Latin, I cringe any time I see a Latina performer called ‘spicy’ or her body parts referred to as some Mexican food item…now that’s racist.

    I ‘sometimes view porn in whatever shape or form,’ primarily photos, and some of that winds up being interracial. It may well be that interracial porn, along with all the usual Internet categories (mature, gangbang, anal, oral, subjugation, etc) is merely serving particular fetishes. The more bizarre, the less interesting to me, frankly. The porn that I do appreciate, though, appeals to me on the basis of beauty and expression, and this includes interracial porn; it is a celebration of the differences in people: skin color, body shape, breast shape, genital detail, etc, not to mention of course the enjoyment of these differences. It is the modern day Kama Sutra on one hand, and erotic art on the other. So I don’t find interracial porn that I see racist, but I expect everything could be twisted in that direction. The upshot is that you can’t generalize.

    I know that you want to hear from a black person, but this may help. I am in a relationship with a black man, and my best friend is black. My boyfriend of course loves interracial porn, and I have had conversations about this many times – and only the black women who can’t get a nice black man have issues with it.

    I agree 100%. I have seen a couple of porn movies over the years, and I do find them to be racialy insulting to the White race. Of the interracial movies that I have seen, MOST have black males treating white females, or other light skinned females as objects or pieces of meat. Most of the time the males usually have thier hands around the females throat as if they wished to kill them. The worst I have seen, was when the male stuck his fingers in the girls mouth and began to pull outward on both cheeks. I could see that the girl was in awful pain . Yet, I have not seen this in Black on Black movies, Why? Do blacks think of white women as trash? Why do black men prefer white women over thier own race? Why are white women attracted to black men? Why is it that black women are not attracted to white men? Is it Penis size? Why aren’t White men attracted to black women? Why is that blacks will beat or kill white males if they try to cross the racial lines of sex. And yet if whites do the same, Whites are charged with a federal hate crime, and declared a Racist. WHY? WHY? WHY!!!

    The concensus is that black men are stupid, smelly, angry, dumb animals who could never be refined or sophisticated. There’s also a deep hatred of white girls in white men these days. It used to be that only losers watched porn, and they wanted to see white girls be raped by animals as a sort of revenge. But interracial porn has exploded, because nowadays almost ALL white men hate white girls… they feel pure contempt for most white girls. Interracial porn offers a way to see white girls degraded, beaten, defiled, and made ‘dirty’ by the inferior black man. Think about it: these white girls are having their sanctity thrown in the toilet by having a black dude make her dirty and ruin her for all good men. When most white men see this, they think she’s literally getting screwed by an animal! Not a person with low status, an ANIMAL, like a horse or a goat or a dog. What better way (that’s legal) to strip a white girl of her status in society, and reduce her to a piece of trash that the white man tower above and confidently look down in contempt?

    That was both untrue and uncalled for. Check some of these responses sometime. Why is it that some white women in interracial relationships decide to start bashing black women? I see it constantly. Getting a decent black man, or any good man for that matter, is no great feat for a woman of any race who is of good standing. Until you can fully appreciate both genders of any particular race, I’d reconsider why you even got into your relationship in the first place if I were you.

    I have seen interracial porn sites that say that all white women should be totally subservient to black men (often while hubby looks on helplessly). If taken seriously, this obviously is racist. However, this kind of material can be used as the basis for fantasy without the fantasizer being a racist. At least I hope so, as I have occasionally fantasized about being a white woman who has to do everything that black men tell me to — or being a black woman doing the bidding of white men, or about being the men in these situations. But then, I’ve fantasized about many things which I would consider outrageous and offensive if anyone did them in real life. Also, in real life I’m interested in members of all races, so I don’t think the porn affects me detrimentally that way. Is the porn racist? Sometimes. Are the users? Not always.
