"Women of color in the pornography industry are paid half to three quarters of what white actresses tend to make."

Porn Stars of Color Face Racial Inequality and Wage Gap Too (via titotito)

Are we really surprised at this fact in a society that placates white pussy as the ultimate prize and puts anybody else into niches and fetish categories?

ARE WE REALLY?

(via sourcedumal)

Oh hey, the source of another of my many feelings about pornography: the fact that the industry is cheerfully, unabashedly racist, and it’s hard to discuss that with people who are determined to present porn as an integral part of women’s sexual liberation

I mean, if Mandingo cuckolding or wild jungle women or submissive geishas are your kink then who am I to say that might be problematic because all kinks are ok and you’re not really racist for getting off on them, it’s just the transgressive taboo of… of being a racist without consequences, I guess

I have no idea how any women of color involved in racist porn feel about it, so I can’t say anything about that, but why don’t I have any idea? Because I’ve never run into them talking about it anywhere and I feel like maybe I should have. Like maybe this should be a very large part of the discussion and you shouldn’t be able to spend any time in porn-positive circles without this being addressed.

I bet I know how they feel about not getting paid as much, though, because that is universally bullshit.
