    Racist gay porn is racist.
    Non-racist gay porn is not racist.

    Racist consumers will buy gay porn they like.
    Non-racist consumers will buy gay porn they like.

    Porn is porn. Does the OP think that gay porn is sexist (because no females are included)?

    First of all you forget about lesbian porn...(And the online article wasn't about inclusion of people but about stereotypes)

    Second of all, I just found the online article genuinely interesting: it contemplates both sides of the argument...so you're assuming that I have a stance on this issue - and that by merely asking "Is gay porn racist" assuming that I already think that it is.

    I don't have a stance. I ask the question for a reason: to drive a debate to see if this article is correct/incorrect in some areas and to see if there can be an answer provided to a reasonably interesting and provocative question.....

    Don't understand why the article emphasized black tops with asian bottoms and avoided the fact that it seems like 90 percent is white gay porn. I've seen black guys with white or asian women only but not very often.

    Yeah, that was one of the issues I had with the article. It seems very selective. Perhaps Gail Dines needs to watch more porn...icon_lol.gif

    Just read the article and i'm still undecided. I do think that *some* porn is racist but I'm not convinced that porn has a culture of racism.

    Exactly.

    Gay porn is like any other commodity; they sell what people want to buy. There isn't some hidden agenda where they're trying to make us racist or reinforce racism. If black thugs and asian twink bottoms are what sells, then that's the kind of porn they'll make. Politically correct porn would make less money.

    The same is true with barebacking in porn. It's what sells the best so the porn studios have to make it in order to stay in business, otherwise their competitors who are making bareback porn will take their business.

    is gay porn racist = is society racist
    porn doesnt exist outside of time its part of the culture. you can argue about the strength of the word 'racist' but yes gay porn all porn panders to existing stereotypes. To argue that it sells so its ok is blind. Like the western world at large 'gay' is dominated by a white male agenda that by and large mimics the beliefs of its hetero counterpart. Is there joy to be found in the visual difference of races interaction? Yes. (I'd be the last to deny the obvious power and magnetism of a strong black man) but porn is just writ large the more hidden prejudices that do exist out in the world.

    you're pulling the race card. why is it called "ebony" porn? why can't a porn that just so happens to have two black people or any nonwhite in it be called a "porn"? if it were two white guys, would it be called "euro" porn? no, it would simply be called a porn. it wouldn't be sectioned off, segregated, isolated, ignored by the major gay porn blogs... hi, queermenow, gaypornblog, menofporn, thesword blog who seem to only be interested 99% of the time in white gay porn stars and gay porn award circuits.

    see, let's be real here. i keep hearing people say that nonwhites are bringing up race, pulling the "race" card but 9 times out of 10, white people are usually the ones doing it either on the low or blatantly and it's acceptable. hell, who started the whole "race" thing to begin with? hell, folks made something so trivial into an important part of life that people actually think that it's important when it's not. it's just sad that the system was created long ago with that along with other prejudices in the mix where it's basically a way of life when it shouldn't be. it's unacceptable.


    I understand that but my point is that there are people that find black and mulatto men attractive. I agree that there shouldn't be "categories" but there are people that fetishize blacks. In other words, not everyone is a sexual racist. People that like black men exist.
