Diesel Washington & Leo Fortes Talks Black Gay Adult Actors & The Big Fat Pink Racist Elephant!

Capture

One of my favorite blogs, The Sword, did an awesome post about the big fat pink elephant in the room! 

'WHY DON’T GAY PORN STUDIOS HIRE MORE BLACK ACTORS?' 

Adult film star Diesel Washington and Leo Forte share their  theories, in this brutally honest and frank discussion about race, ethnicity, and the politics of porn.

Check out the video after the jump!

As a blogger, I notice that even the 'white' blogs don't really cover the urban porn industry hence why The Luckey Star created. Even on The Sword, it's rare that I see a face of color. If they feature a entertainer of color, he is always the 'angry big dick mandingo black dude' , the common thug or the 'submissive' slave. It's rare to see two black men starring in a mainstream production. 

Not to mention, the entertainers of today are opting for the ' tatted thug' look tagged with a ratchet stage name. They don't look at this business as a brand but more as a way to make money in the moment. And then you have that interracial issue. Very few black performer will bottom on film, because they view the bottom’s role as inferior and effeminate. Or, in racial terms would view the white topping a black bottom as racist. Don't believe me, go to Myvidster and read the comments.Not to mention, We are still buying into this DL straight thug persona. Some studios even go as far as finding the most ratchet gutter butt talent they can find right off the hoe stroll and take advantage of them. They don't hire serious talent. The content has become so repetetive that it doesn't sell as much anymore.We are apart the bigger problem. That's the truth…

I don’t think the lack of black actors is completely the fault of the studios. I think a lot of it has to do with clientele as well; I’ve seen some VERY nasty comments when studios branch out on both ends. I feel the racial diversity in porn is a reflection on certain views on race in the gay community. But the studios could at least attempt to feature more black performers; despite the racists. And perhaps when they do they can embrace and celebrate the fact that they are adding diversity to their team rather than present it as a concession or appeasement.

We have to stop talking the talk, embrace diversity or just shut the fuck up. You don't have to be into interracial fucking but if you are, support the movies so that studios will hire more entertainers of color. I would love to see a really hot white dude fucking a really hot black dude and there is no underline stereotypical intent.  At the end of the day, it's business. It's about what makes the most money for studios and what sells. 

I am an advocate for starting your own shit. I felt that there wasn't enough attention on the mainstream blogs for  performers of color so I started my own blog.  I encourage performers everyday to start their own studios and make their own movies. Give the fans what they want to see! Don't wait on the 'white' studios to do it for you! Put your money where your mouth is.

The keyword for today is PRO-ACTIVE!

Shout out to Diesel Washington and Leo Fortes!

    I get what they are saying, but the only problem I have with Diesel is why now come out and talk? Is it because you’re not finding anymore work amd you’ve been blackballed from the mainstream porn industry? When Doesel was popping he NEVER, EVER did any scenes with any other black performers (with the exception of his scene with another model who’s name skips me) and I remember quite vividly Diesel had an A4A account where he emphatically stated “no black men”….

      I know he did a scene with a mulatto dude who’s name was Jace Jones. I will say that most ‘white’ studios won’t cast two black dudes together. Austin Wilde blew the whistle on that one hence partly why he was fired and blackballed. Diesel is one of the selected few who are able to get work that pays real money. The urban market don’t pay well at all these days. As far as his profile, I never saw that but that’s not to say that it’s not true and at least SOMEBODY is speaking on it…

      Diesel has had a blog for many years and I knew him from his blog and not porn first. He has been speaking out about it since maybe 2006 and was blackballed so this is not a new topic that he is now speaking on it. He has been speaking and now people want to listen. As for A4A we all have preference if I’m looking to fuck what I have a preference for that day and that week then state what you want so you don’t waste anyone’s time. The problem is with all people want to take things to personal. If he was on BGC stating no black men then we have a problem.

      • yup

        For ANY black man to say no black men on ANY website is a problem. But then you want to come out and talk about racism in porn, now that your star has completely dimmed? Get out of here. Not buying it, and neither are many others.

          i remember after washington star went out for white porn, he said the reason why he never did blk porn was because nobody never asked him… i was like kneegrow please. pander to blk folks now that you cant get a job doing white porn. beside hes like 45, when you went to school with you new bottoms mom, time for you to hang it up.

  • nat

    i am with yup…he only begin to be blk when he got banned from white porn. i guess he forgot he has a blog/website and said thangs on there and posted pics of his white boo that did not help his blk following… all of these guys who only did white porn, washington, rush, axel, diaz,, etc are no longer wanted in white porn are flocking to blk porn to get their money. they are the last people to speak on race because it didnt matter until it affected them… studios dont hire blk actors because there audience dont ask them too. i was once told the blk guys who watch white porn want white guys and the white guys who watch white porn want white guys. the few people of color who are put in white porn never seem to be the pro color type.

    • yup

      I co-sign everything you just said man. The problem with inter-racial porn is that alot of the scenes are sorely mis-cast. Normally, the black guys are hot, but the white guys are unattractive. And it appears so obvious that the attraction in alot of the scenes (on the black actors part especially) is forced. Yeah, their dick is hard (but we all know they use Viagra).
