The Controversy of Interracial Porn-by Mariah Milano

Racism in Porn

Op/Ed By Mariah  Milano

When I started doing movies back in 1998 I was cast as a bi-racial girl and in pretty much starred in black themed movies for the first year. I did the Ed Powers and Randy West movies first, but after that I was pretty much a West Coast and Video Team performer. In my personal life I dated black men exclusively since before I was old enough to date and I was pretty much a black girl to my core. I am Sicilian and was always told that Sicilians are part African that’s why they have kinky hair and dark skin. That part in True Romance where Dennis Hopper tells Christopher Walken he is part "Moolie" didn’t help either :)

As I got older I changed in a lot of ways and one of those ways was to find out what Sicilian meant and where we came from. Turns out that Sicilians aren’t African at all. We were infused with Tunisian which is Arabic and that’s where our darkness comes from.

SO I was very confused when I was young and I embraced being a black girl. When I was new in the business I said I was mixed a few times. I had no problem shooting with Mr Marcus and Byron Long and Jake Steed and Lexington Steele. That was normal to me.

These days I read things girls say about inter-racial scenes and I also read what the fans say too. For the last 3 years I have been called a "dodger" which basically means I dodge shooting with black men and a racist even though my son is half black. I have explained myself more than enough on why I haven’t shot that much inter-racial but it isn’t good enough. There is no answer good enough for those who want you to do it and no answer good enough for those who don’t want you to. You cannot win.

Well I take that back, you can win. You can be honest. You can say why you REALLY don’t do scenes with black men or women. I’ve heard a girl say she won’t use a black dildo in a girl girl scene because that is considered inter-racial. I mean give me a fucking break! ITS PLASTIC! lol

My favorite excuse is the most common one. "I am just not attracted to black men so I won’t shoot with them"  Well, ok bitch were you attracted to Ron Jeremy when you shot with him? How about Dave Hardman or Steve Hatcher. Both nice people that I worked with back in the day, but not exactly going to be on the cover of GQ now are they? Or even better, are you attracted to every customer at the Bunny Ranch that you fuck or the tricks you turn in hotel rooms as an escort? I fucking HIGHLY doubt it.

That "I’m just not attracted" shit is such a cop out from saying what you really think and feel. How about, I don’t want to shoot with black men. I don’t like black men? or how about I’m a fucking racist and I won’t fuck a nigger? How about that for a dose of reality?

Why the fuck can’t  people own up to their opinions and beliefs?

I heard a girl say, "Who are the 2 biggest porn stars ever? Jenna and Tera and what do they have in common? They have never done an inter-racial movie ever!" Now, there is validity to that  statement, however, this girl and 99.9% of all the other girls are NEVER going to be Tera or Jenna, I assure you!

On the flip side, I’ve seen it posted on forums where fans say to the girls "Please don’t ever do interracial…I don’t want to see you violated and spoiled like that!" yet in the next thread they request for her to do a 20 man blow bang or bukkake! I saw where a guy wrote that any girl who does interracial should not be eligible for AVN or XBiz awards…see, now to me that is at least honest. They are saying how they feel and what they think no matter how ignorant or 50 years ago their way of thinking is.

There is a lot of racism alive and thriving in the porn business these days. I was advised by an agent of mine to not do interracial scenes because it would make my per scene rate lower after that and if I did do an interracial scene I should charge double. Now days, that same agent has been fucked by more black dick than Lil Kim. Interracial is one of the biggest niche’s in porn today. The biggest buyers of it are white men so the market isn’t one sided at all.

How many times have you heard people say "Halle Berry is very hot…for a black girl"? I’ve heard it for years and years and it’s sickening to me.Halle Berry is a beautiful woman no matter the color of her skin.

I know there some who will read this and agree and some who will think even less of me than they do right now. I honestly don’t care because no matter what you think of me you at least can count on hearing me say what I really mean. I won’t sugar coat it for you nor will I excuse you for not being honest or hiding behind something politically correct. Fuck that. We’re fucking porn stars and no one expects us to say a god damn thing that means anything or that makes any sense at all. A low expectation which many of us have earned, but some of us want to be heard and be respected for being real no matter what the consequences. The racist girls will do no worse because let’s face it, if you’re not doing interracial scenes now your fans like because you don’t fuck black guys.

Either way, you’ll never please everyone. You don’t have to fuck black people or Asian people or Hispanic people, but at least don’t insult our intelligence any longer with the "I’m just not attracted" reasoning.

    Ironic that you say “no one expects us to say a god damn thing that means anything or that makes any sense at all” because I’m a little confused, Mariah. You say you used to think you were black, and at that time were dating black men exclusively. Then later, after having a child who’s half black, you discover you’re not black. And now you choose not to work with blacks, at all, or so often, correct?

    I don’t get what your point is. It seems you have racial preferences yourself, and are “just not attracted” to blacks, the same as you are bitching about other people describing themselves as being.

  2. MonicaFoster Says:

    Well thought out and written post Mariah – you pretty much said what needed to be said and called out the women in the industry who needed to be called out.

    Someone should write an article on the white MEN in the business who have issues with performing with black women. That’s definitely something I’ve come across.

  3. juventus Says:

    Well said M…as always

  4. BigDickDaddy Says:

    *cough* . . .Lisa Ann . . . *cough*

  5. jackpot1701 Says:

    Mariah is the third actress that I have read recently that have had a gripe about interracial in porn; the other two being Kelly Divine and Valerie Luxe, two girls who ONLY date black guys. Is there a trend here? Or is it OK since they are being racist against whites? I just want to be sure.

  6. whitey Says:

    I´ve struggled about that “…I don´t want to see you violated and spoiled like that!” quote.
    I mean have you guys ever seen Rocco Sifredi movies?
    The other thing I always wondered about is, why are most interacial scenes that hardcore? It seems like that´s what most of the guys want to see and I still don´t get it.
    I love to see interacial scenes, because they look good. But most of the times I got the feeling it´s just like you want to show a black man punish a white girl.
    I think that it shouldn´t matter if there´s a white man or a black man doing a scene.
    And there was another actress who said: “I don´t know why interracial is paid better. We´re not in the sixties anymore.” that was Stoya. Certainly you can discuss about Stoya and somethings she´d done but I think that´s the point.
    “We´re not in the sixties anymore.”

  7. Darrah Says:

    I remember watching Jenna Jameson interviewed (on VH1?) by talk show host Wendy Williams and Wendy asked her about why she has never been with black men on screen. She gave this lame excuse about how you start off slow with certain scenes in the beginning of your career and as the years go by, you work into those other scenes towards the end of your career. What Jenna failed to mention was she was basically already finished with porn years ago and was only shooting with one man (her husband).

    So many of the women say working with black men would ruin their careers and their price would go down. But the biggest names in porn have worked with black men and their careers haven’t been ruined. There’s Jenna Haze, Belladonna, and Bree Olson to name a few.

  8. Houstondon Says:

    A number of voters in various award ceremonies have made it clear to me that they DEMAND a female performer do IR or they lower their rating. I don’t have an issue with women that do, or don’t do IR, primarily because I rate the performances (when reviewing) but some have a checklist that also includes anal, foot play, and whatever other personal fetish they have (they just aren’t open enough to publicly admit it). If a gal rants that she only goes out with a particular race though, and doesn’t back it up with something reasonable, her stock drops with me.

  9. Darrah Says:

    Houstondon, women are told to do IR and anal if they want to win awards?

    I hate this fucking industry!

  10. newklear Says:

    I think Mariah made one important point in this article: “There is no answer good enough for those who want you to do it and no answer good enough for those who don’t want you to. You cannot win.”

    Pws need to realize that they can’t “win” discussions on porn boards especially when such a sensitive issue as IR is concerned.

    Too bad the rest of the article just doesn’t make much sense. I mean are you really asking why racist pws (assuming there are racist pws) won’t just publicly say the N-word and openly admit being racist? Really? Even the most ignorant of Sasha Grey’s anal warts knows that there are certain things that you just don’t say in America, stop pretending you’ve never heard of political correctness.

    Also, if IR is so big this days that even Lis…ooops your prejudiced former agent is doing it all the time, why are you being more selective when it comes to doing IR than you were at the beginning of your career? And are you still dating blacks exclusively? If so, why don’t you stick to your own logic and simply say “I’m a fucking racist and I won’t date a cracker?” :)))

    IR porn is oabout as one sided as it gets. The black man is portrayed as some sort of sexual god whose sexual abilities and general manliness is far above those of any white guy(once you gone black, you never go back). The white woman is his rightful property; only he can give her the sexual pleasure she craves. Her place is to submit to the BBC, especially if she’s pale and blond. The white man is either an annoyance, that is an insecure, jealous, racist person trying to keep black men and white women apart at any cost or a cuckold-weak white man who has realized and embraced his natural inferiority to black men and actively works to hook up his woman with black men. The black woman is…somewhere far away…as ar as IR porn is concerned, the black woman doesn’t even exist.

    The real Luke precisely described this essence of the IR porn in one of his short essays many years ago, it hasn’t changed one bit since then.

  11. pornster Says:

    A very well written article about a sensitive subject. I remember a time in the 70’s and 80’s when IR porn (Black guys screwing white girls) was relatively rare. The 90’s changed all that. Heck, I think swallowing was extremely rare until 2000!

    Porn certainly has changed a lot on screen but probably not so much off screen.

  13. Mariah Milano Says:

    Okay look, I never stopped being attracted to black men and I never “stopped” doing scenes with black men. I just will not do ghetto themed scenes or a scene where a guy is throwing gang signs while he fucks me. (I had an offer to shoot that) I have been speaking to LT at Elegant Angel about shooting for him again which would be another IR scene, my fifth in 3 years. Yes that’s a low number but I haven’t been offered that many IR scenes or the ones that I was offered wouldn’t pay my rate. The ones who did pay my rate I shot for. It’s that simple.

    I also won’t shoot those Cholo lowrider videos either where a Mexican gangster fuck me in a lowrider while he gives shout outs to his homies and wears his gang colors and all that shit. Some girls do and that’s their thing. I won’t be in a scene that promotes anything gang related or ghetto themes, no matter what the race or color or anything else. I have done some embarrassing shit no doubt, but those days are over.

    Jeremiah, I have no racial preference. I simply laid a little foundation for where I started in the business and how things evolved for me as I got older and I learned about my heritage and became a woman rather than a teenager trying to play some role. Finding out i wasn’t black African (Tunisia is northern Africa and these days mostly black, but was more Arabic 1000 years ago when they conquered Sicily) opened my eyes to a lot of things. First of all I grew up a little. Ed Powers was the first white man I ever had sex with!!!!!!!!!!! lol but he also treated me with respect and courtesy as my friend off camera and showed me that I didn’t have to be someone’s bitch my whole life. (I was in a retarded teenage relationship with my son’s father at the time who was 11 years older than me)I date men of all colors without preference to skin color.

    And of course I do not expect anyone to say “I don’t fuck niggers” publicly. But how about just saying I won’t have sex with a black person because it’s not my thing?” is that any more insulting than blatantly lying and sugar coating your racist viewpoints to people who know otherwise? I don’t think so personally.

    I thought it made pretty good sense and after reading it again I still do. I just wanted to point out that there is a thriving racist vein that flows beneath the surface of this business and it isn’t discussed often enough.

  14. newklear Says:

    Mariah, the whole northern part of the continent of Africa is populated mainly by Arab people. The area is considered to be a part of the Arab world as opposed to the Sub-Saharan Africa, which is the ‘proper Africa’ inhabited by mostly blacks and is therefore sometimes also called ‘black Africa’. If you were a Tunisian girl, dating a black man(not to mention having bi-racial kid) would get you honor killed by your own father/brother/male cousin.

    And as for your point, I disagree. There’s enough talk about race in porn on ADT and some other places with with sufficient participation of porn insiders. That’s not the problem. It’s just that the level of discourse is very low, the participants rarely approach the subject with an open mind and at least basic empathy for the other side. “Dodger” bashing and pseudo-scientific nonsense copied straight from strormfront ain’t gonna change anyone’s mind.

  15. ToddGaines Says:

    I say get it how and where you get it, but don’t be closed minded when dating other races, but why is everything always against white people? You say white women don’t wanna do certain things, but yet you say you dated black men exclusively, meaning you didn’t want to go out with white guys. Why is that? Is that not the same as girls not wanting to do black guys?

    Me i’m one of the 3 I’s (Italian, Irish, and Indian), but like i said in the beginning, get it how and where you get it.

    A good fuck is a good fuck
    Love is love
    Friends are friends

    but to do something exclusively, then that says allot about you. People of all races are gonna give you those 3 things i just listed. But to cut out other people cause you choose 1 exclusively is close minded. When i watch porn, i watch it to see the girl, if i wanna see, well use you for example. If i wanna watch Mariah Millano, then thats what i’m gonna watch, it don’t matter if your fuckin White, Black, Asian, Spanish, or Indian guys or girls. To me what matters is the little things.

    Why does most IR porn gotta be “Yo Nigga i’m fuckin a white bitch”? Why can’t it just be 2 people fuckin? That’s why i don’t like most IR porn. But then again i don’t like some of the White porn either. Like that guy Manuel or whatever his name is, I don’t wanna see a chick gettin slapped, and this dude puttin his toes in her mouth, and all that shit. Why does most IR porn got that “Na Na Na Na Na were fuckin a white bitch” vibe to it?

    The other day i was watching Ricki White and Lexington Steele, and that shit was hot as hell, and you know what was one of the reasons why it was? Cause it was just 2 people fuckin, no “I’m gonna fuck this lil white bitch with my big black dick” or “Hey I’m fuckin your white daughter”.

    Na man, it was just 2 people having a good fuck. Why do about 95% of the IR title names alone gotta be like i said the “Na na na na na were fuckin a white chick”

    Bangin White Ass
    Fuck My White Ass
    White Chicks Gettin Black Balled
    Black Dicks in White Chicks
    Big Black Poles and White Holes
    Daddy’s Worst Nightmare

    Are just some of them, and i know that there are White guy on black chick movies with similar titles, but there are almost quadruple amount of titles with the Black men/White women pair. I get that the titles are there to define it’s IR category, and shit, but really? I ain’t gonna watch some shit that’s called that, just like how i’d doubt a black guy would watch a movie going “Black Chicks gettin Whited out” or some shit like that.

    Like i said to me it’s the chick, i ain’t gonna go look up a Lexington Steele movie, or a Manuel movie, but if they are in a movie with the chick that i’m looking up then i’ll watch it, why? Cause that’s the chick i was looking for, but i’m gonna delete it/turn it off if it got a dude slappin the chick, spittin on her, toes in the mouth, “Oh i’m fuckin a white bitch/black bitch suck my black/white dick” vibe. I saw some shit the other day, a black dude fuckin a white chick in Timbs, a fitted cap with the doo-rag, goin “Suck my big black dick, yeah yo daddy watchin his white daughter gettin fucked by my big black dick”. I turned that shit the fuck off. Why does it gotta always be slights against Whites?

    Now onto the dating thing, I saw a movie awhile back called “Lakeview Terrace” with Samuel Jackson, and the girl playin his daughter brought up a good point

    “Why is it when a Black guy dates a white girl, his friends are like, YO DOGG YOU DA SHIT, but when a Black girl dates a White guy it’s like, GIRL WE GOTTA TALK”

    And the sad thing is, a movie said some true shit. One of my friends works at a store that sells mixtapes, Fitted’s, Doo-rags, jewelery, Rap DVD’s and shit like that. A white guy came in with a black chick looked around, bought a couple mixtapes, and left. My friend came over and asked me what was wrong with that picture. My friend who i’ve know for about 10 years since i was 14, had a problem with that, but he dates white chicks all the time.

    I”m someone who grew up in the 90’s, baggy clothes, skateboarding and surfing, has long straight hair, listen to rock and rap, all of which i still do and still wear. A couple months ago i was walking home from the store and i had a leather jacket on, not like a trench coat, but a regular leather jacket, i walked past a black chick, i’d say maybe after 10-15 seconds after passing her she goes “HHHHEEEEEEYYYYYY RRRROOOOCCCCCKKKKERRRRRRR”. Now seriously was that necessary? Yea i listen to rock, so? But, that was meant as an insult to me, and for what? Cause i have long hair and a leather jacket? I bet she wouldn’t have said that if a black guy walked by with long hair and a leather jacket.

    Racism isn’t one way, racism isn’t even a two way street, racism is an intersection. You got black’s and white’s going up and down, spanish and asian going left and right, and indian’s tryin to cross the street.

    On porn i don’t like seeing girls gettin mistreated, or having a black guy repeatedly throw in my face that he’s fuckin a white chick and shit like that, why can’t it just be 2 people fuckin? Same with a white dude fuckin a black chick, why can’t it just be 2 people fuckin? All that shit is a hard on killer. Those are kinda like pet peeve’s, kinda like smokin a blunt in my house and my house ain’t clean (Don’t ask me why, my apt is always clean, but when there is pepsi and liquor bottles around, or clothes on my floor before i smoke a blunt i get fuckin irritated, so i always make sure i pick them up).

    IR is a top seller of white people but what kind of IR? Black guy/White Girl, White Guy/Black Girl, Black Guy/Spanish Girl, White Guy/Spanish girl etc, etc, etc.

    All in all, yea it is fucked when people want to close out other races in things, but remember it’s an intersection, not a one way. That’s the only problem i had with what you said Mariah. To do something exclusively or whatever is wrong, cause your basically saying you don’t want to be with another race. So like i said in the beginning get it how you get it

    A good fuck is a good fuck
    Love is love
    Friends are friends

  16. Mariah Milano Says:

    why the fuck do you guys jump to a conclusion that I date one race only??? I said when I was young meaning when I was in my teens!
    I think I said in my rebuttal that I date all races and don’t differentiate by skin color!

    I thought I said that didn’t I? I fucking hate when anyone bitches and claims reverse racism…I hate when black guys say everything is a conspiracy and I have white people crying foul reverse racism. it’s stupid and nothing more than playing the role of a victim.

    Read my rebuttal then make your claims for Christ’s sake!

  17. Harvey Dent Says:

    North Africans are Arabs, they are not black, and the pre arab inhabitants of northern Africa, the Berebers and Carthaginians are related to the Basques, the Welsh and the Irish according to DNA studies. The most famous Bereber is Zinedine Zidane.

    Subsaharan Africans, are what Americans call blacks, the Spanish and Portuguese (and until the 60s americans) call Negros, altought in Spain the more politically correct subsahariano is taking hold.

    All Europeans were olive brown skinned until very recently. Fair skin and fair hair are recent adaptation to the sun less skys of Northern and Western Europe. Humans migrated from Africa into the Middle East and them into Europe in the course of tens of thousands of years. For example is proven that the population of the Brittish Islands comes from Spain thanks to DNA studies, but the English the Welsh, the Scottish and the Irish have lighter skin that the average Spaniard due to natural selection.

  18. Mariah Milano Says:

    yes this is true…there are more blacks in Tunisia now mostly from Senegal and Somalia but the whole “Moores conquered Sicily” thing is true but the Moore’s were North African which is now basically Morocco which I will be visiting on February 11 and 12 during my trip to Spain next week and am VERY excited about it!

    I love and hate all peoples equally! lol

  19. RockPepe Says:

    I love your arab part Mariah, I always was sure that your pretty eyes came from the Nile Valley :)

  20. ToddGaines Says:

    I don’t know if that was in reference to what i said, but i said “you say you dated black men exclusively, meaning you didn’t want to go out with white guys Why is that?” in the past tense. You didn’t go out with White guys in the past, i was just wondering why? Obviously you do now. Sorry, if that wasn’t towards me, but i thought i should clear that up, and like i said, that was the my only problem with what you said. I read your blog, and put a well thought out one of my one. I’m pretty sure when i was talking about your exclusive past, that i put it in past tense of “Dated, and didn’t”. I was just wondering why, then again you don’t have to tell me why. It’s your business, not mine, so i’m not sure who you were talking to, or if you just meant everyone in general.

    Marilyn Chambers Bio / Information

    Marilyn was the first woman in the pornographic film industry to actually make any real money and achieve some sort of a power status. She could be considered as a precursor to such modern female power figures as Jenna Jameson and Pamela Anderson.

    http://www.mailhollywood.com/cel.php?viewCel=16

    The film that made her a star was behind the Green Door. In this film, the first dick she takes inside of her pussy is black and the first dick she sucks is black. These are not just the firsts in the movie, but in her porn career. Behind the Green Door came out in fucking 1972.

  22. jeremiahsteele Says:

    “Jeremiah, I have no racial preference. I simply laid a little foundation for where I started in the business and how things evolved for me as I got older and I learned about my heritage and became a woman rather than a teenager trying to play some role.”

    I’m still confused. This run on sentence doesn’t make sense to me. I think you got certain prepositions and conjunctions out of place. I think you are saying, “I though I was black so I tried to act black and felt inclined to date back, but that was way back”.

    “Finding out i wasn’t black African (Tunisia is northern Africa and these days mostly black, but was more Arabic 1000 years ago when they conquered Sicily) opened my eyes to a lot of things. First of all I grew up a little.”

    This reminds me a reversal of that movie “See no evil, hear no evil”, when a blind Richard Pryor shouts out “You mean I’m not white?!”

    “Ed Powers was the first white man I ever had sex with!!!!!!!!!!! lol” – No wonder Video Team and West Coast had such appeal, ha! I’m surprised once you went black, you ever went back. (just kiddin’ Ed)

    “And of course I do not expect anyone to say “I don’t fuck niggers” publicly. But how about just saying I won’t have sex with a black person because it’s not my thing?” is that any more insulting than blatantly lying and sugar coating your racist viewpoints to people who know otherwise? I don’t think so personally.

    I thought it made pretty good sense and after reading it again I still do. I just wanted to point out that there is a thriving racist vein that flows beneath the surface of this business and it isn’t discussed often enough”

    I still think you’re a little confused, Mariah. At least I still am, in regards to this conversation…

    This whole dialog reminds me of that play “Avenue Q”‘s song “Everyone’s a little bit racist”

    Kate Monster:
    Admitting it is not an easy thing to do…

    Princeton:
    But I guess it’s true.

    Kate Monster:
    Between me and you,
    I think

    Both:
    Everyone’s a little bit racist
    Sometimes.
    Doesn’t mean we go
    Around committing hate crimes.
    Look around and you will find
    No one’s really color blind.
    Maybe it’s a fact
    We all should face
    Everyone makes judgments
    Based on race.

    Princeton:
    Now not big judgments, like who to hire
    or who to buy a newspaper from –

    Kate Monster:
    No!

    Princeton:
    No, just little judgments like thinking that Mexican
    busboys should learn to speak goddamn English!

    Kate Monster:
    Right!

    Both:
    Everyone’s a little bit racist
    Today.
    So, everyone’s a little bit racist
    Okay!
    Ethnic jokes might be uncouth,
    But you laugh because
    They’re based on truth.
    Don’t take them as
    Personal attacks.
    Everyone enjoys them –
    So relax!

    Hello!

  24. prince Says:

    I always read this chicks blogs/comments i don’t watch porn although I’m in the adult industry.Mariah ! every time you come up with some comment i think you need to be articulate because, I’m as confused as everybody else “You thought you were black ” now you don’t. You date black guys exclusively or is it you prefer black guys . The last thing is ya daughter is black STOP USING THE WORD NIGGER .I think this is a desperate attempt again to get some kind of attention.

  25. prince Says:

    Oh by the way Mariah you will be in the news tomorrow. Next time think about ya racist confused rants Tunisia is not inhabited by Black Africans they are called Arabs .

  26. sammyglick Says:

    Finally, Mariah writes something actually worth reading/discussing.

    Beyond her honest struggle with her racial identity, she mentions some interesting points. Such as those porn girls who are straight up hypocrites with their “well I’m not attracted to blacks…” Which would be a perfectly okay statement, if as Mariah observes, they didn’t then go off and do scenes with guys who are far far far below say a Tommy Gunn, Erik Everhard, Mr. Pete or even Brandon Iron.

    Likewise, for every Mr. Marcus/Lexington Steele there’s plenty of black performers who are the equivalent of white guys like Dave Hartman or that scary looking guy from numerous JM Prod. videos (Dirty Harry I think? super skinny with a thick black mustache for those keeping score).

    So let’s be honest in recognizing that just like white performers, not all black performers are of the same level or quality.

    Let’s ALSO be honest in how porn has zero qualms with exploiting racism and racist ideas. Be it idiotic titles — many which are even more asinine than the usual types of titles — exclusive to interracial porn. Or the content of many videos featuring black performers. It’s no wonder that fans are on the one hand, fearful of their favorite white porn girl doing an interracial title, yet they fail to see that the SAME GIRL is getting plowed JUST AS HARD in a movie with a white male performer.

    As again, last I checked, Everhard/Steffano/Ferrara even Jules Jordan — isn’t at all into ‘gentle’ fucking! Yet we’ve been so conditioned to think White Porn Girl Plus Black Male Porn Guy Equals SUPER INTENSE AND DEGRADING PORN.

    Yet we never blink an eye when it’s White Porn Girl Plus White Porn Guy in movies such as Ass Jizz Junkies, Evil Anal, Anal Expeditions, Cumaholics, Slap Her In The Craper, Whores Don’t Wear Panties, Trophy Whores, Tunnel Butts, Cum Coat My Throat, yadda yadda yadda.

    Finally, it’s also clear that some performers (such as Mariah’s former agent, turned MILF superstar I might add), freely exploit porn and America’s problems with race. For it’s probably very lucrative to have never done interracial during the first part of your career (ie when you were fresh off the bus and under 25) — then to start doing it, along with Anal/DPs and anything else you didn’t do previously, now that you’re over 30 and looking for work in an ever shrinking pool of jobs. You can bet Mariah’s former agent is getting double (and who knows, maybe even more) for all of her recent IR scenes!

    Yet no matter how much she’s getting, it’s bullshit for her to have once advised Mariah to 1) not do IR 2) once you do it, get as much $ as you can in case it fucks up your career. As I can also guarantee you that this bitch knows the sad truth behind all of this nonsense; that interracial porn sells faster than a half-off Denny’s meal down in the American South.

  27. JohnnieMontecito Says:

    I think there is a huge difference between types of IR scenes. Mariah makes a good point in that some of these scenes are ghetto. That is not cool. But most of the ones with Lex or MR. Mracus are completely different. Both of these men also seem to show a sense of loving women. Mariah is also right that it doesn’t matter if it’s Black,Mexican, Asian or White ghetto.

    I also find it sad in what Houstondon says about stock dropping and being pushed into IR and ANAL scenes. If some one does not find these types of work appealing why should they do them. The performer should have freedom of choice. I think people forget this is a job like any other. At a normal job we have rights. It seems since it’s adult the females lose much of those rights, which is not right.

    As for the dating side that should not be held against some one. If a performer does IR on camera but won’t date IR in there personal life that is their choice. We all do things for $$$ that we might not do other wise. Or if they choose not to do it at all.

  28. praetorianknigh Says:

    I like the article about you Mariah and regardless of what others think I’ve got your back no matter what choices you make. As for the haters and racists assholes I keep a very large shovel nearby to make them disappear like Hoffa. People like this perpetuate hatred amongst everyone as well as push stereo-types that no longer belong in today’s society. Grow the fuck get off Mariah back/ass she’s human and has the right to make her own choice not yours. I will support her no matter what. Cindi thank you for an Excellent article.

  29. AL Says:

    I knew Harvey would have detailed specifics regarding race…

    I liked it, I thought Mariah was bi racial actually before she said here she was Sicilian, and southern Italians really for the most part only look like they do because they resemble the look of the greater Mediterranean region

  30. Mariah Milano Says:

    I thought I should reply to Jeremiah again since he didn’t get it still…yes at one point in my life I dated black men only. I’ll say it again, I was in my teens and like most porn stars I have some daddy issues and my dad is as racist as it gets so draw your own conclusion why I did the one thing that would make him the most miserable. I identified with my faux African ancestry and I was as ghetto as it gets…slippers worn to school and pacifiers and braided hair and I would wear my grandfather’s white t shirts. I used to claim to be in a gang when I was 13 and hung around with a black gang in the valley and Inglewood. I was horrible until my son was born just after I turned 17 and he changed my life. I took being a mom seriously and stopped dressing like an idiot and started seeing that my way of life was going to get me and my child nowhere.
    I was ignorant and naive and as racist towards whites as white people are towards blacks. I didn’t get it.
    now I see things very differently and I appreciate the differences in all people. I think that the ghetto way of life is a shame and that people gravitate towards ignorance for some stupid reason. I guess because that way no one will expect much from you. For whatever reason, or color I don’t do ghetto on camera or off.

  31. Mariah Milano Says:

    thank you Sammy. I was wondering what you were going to say! :) If you email me i have something for you!
    mariah@mariahxxx.net

    thanks!

  32. joe truth Says:

    No one should be judge on what they like or dislike. It is called free will… You black racist may not know about that. NEWS FLASH… not everyone likes the same things in life! If a man or woman that is black only takes up with blacks, they are no more a racist than a white person whom exercises the same choice. What is funny here is that we have people trying to dictate to others what their choices should be. That is just an ego maniac weirdo out of control. It is OK to be different. It is OK to dislike things in life. It is good to not be politically correct. Free choice is good. If you need to put others down for their choices your pathetic!

  33. sammyglick Says:

    Joe Truth — I don’t think ANYONE is saying that we all should be forced to have one big multicultural gangbang!

    Mariah’s post was specific to the Porn Industry and how many female performers address the issue of working with Black performers. Likewise, what the argument often boils down to is; if you’re getting paid to fuck semi-random guys on film, which is already a big no-no in polite mainstream society and essentially leads to said women (and men) being permanently labeled as ‘whores/sluts/douchebags’, then why care about the color of the cock/pussy…when the paycheck is still green.

    Mariah was addressing why a female performer would choose to do all sorts of (degrading to some, hot to others) crazy sex acts such as ATM, multiples, DP, Anal, Creampies, et cetera — just so long as it’s with a white guy. It doesn’t even have to be the best looking white guy either. They don’t even have to have the most normal sized cocks. Just as long as they’re white, White Porn Girl is 110% down.

    So White Porn Girl A could do a scene with four white guys hung bigger than Mr. Marcus and Lexington Steele combined — she’s not going to complain, and neither are her fans (who oddly, are NOT concerned that she’ll be defiled, stretched out, jizzed on, ass gapped, or pounded into submission). Nope, it’s just another day in Porn Valley. Just another instance of a White Girl getting fucked on film (by whites) for money.

    Correctly, Mariah calls BULLSHIT on this and simply asks for performers to be more honest. If you don’t want to work with blacks fine. It should be treated the same as if you didn’t want to stick a baseball bat in your ass or swallow 10 cum loads in rapid succession. Yes, we all have things in this world we like and dislike. Yet to continue the silly charade of “oh, I don’t fuck blacks on film for $ because I can’t find one I want to work with” is lame.

    Fine, if you’re not into blacks, no sweat. Don’t front about how you listen to Lil’ Wayne and grew up on the Cosby Show and What’s Happening.

    I’m not into Asians, midgets or amputees — but that doesn’t make me prejudiced against those groups if I rejected an offer to fuck any of their female members for $500 while the cameras are rolling.

  34. President4Life Says:

    Jesus Christ people.

    As a Black man, let me say that I don’t really give a fuck what people’s preferences are, as long as they do their jobs. I’ve heard of a ton of girls with the same story, who dated brothas off screen and maybe did a little to no IR on screen, or do a ton of IR, it doesn’t matter. I get it’s about money. If I was a PW, I’d try to make as much money as possible too. I wouldn’t give a fuck about trying to be the MLK of porn. Money rules the day. If you can make more money fuckin’ White guys, or don’t want to be seen fuckin’ brothas on screen then cool. I don’t care about the color of the dicks anyway.

    Another thing that bothers me is Americans inability to understand that Arabic is a culture, not a racial group. Arabs in general are a mixture of European, African, and Asian haplogroups, which is why they look the way they do. There is no “Arabic” genetic haplogroup, just European, Sub-Saharan African, East Asian, Native American, and Pacific Islander/Aborigine

    Latinos and Arabs are a part of cultures not races. Basically regions of Languages and religions full of genetically mixed people. So, Mariah, might have some Black in her somewhere, who knows?

    You certainly have certain characteristics that sistas have.

    Oh and P.S.

    Monica Foster, you are a goddess!!!

    Peace!!!

  35. jeremiahsteele Says:

    Thanks Mariah. When you originally wrote in your op/ed
    “I have explained myself more than enough on why I haven’t shot that much inter-racial…”, I guess you should’ve explained it, because I had no idea. I wouldn’t take ghetto stuff personally, though, it’s just an act. A lot of porn stars perform in ways that may look silly, ridiculous or embarrassing to some, but to me it’s all entertainment, as long as no one’s getting hurt. And some would say cum shots on the face (or “in yo face!”) are demeaning, regardless of what race is doing it. But yeah, you should do whatever or whoever you want.

  36. MonicaFoster Says:

    I’m so grateful for the “comment” system on blogs now days.

    Again Mariah – really well written article. You put a lot of thought into it and you really went “out on a limb” by sharing a bit of your background, thoughts on how you view yourself, how you felt the need to become a more responsible adult for your child, etc. I really admire you for being brave and bold enough to get as personal as you did here.

    I’m glad you took the time to explain to some of the readers here who didn’t exactly get your point right off the bat. You didn’t really NEED to explain more in the comments here, but being that you did was cool and I don’t blame u for doing so – I would have.

    Unfortunately just about everyone here is very off when it comes to the “ethnic makeup” of North Africans – not going to touch that subject though.

    I think the point Mariah is really making is that at this point in our society, it’s no longer “black vs. white” – it’s more of a cultural and socio-economic split in America more than anything. Some people still want to DEFINE and label this split as black and white (racial) because it’s easier. Generally it’s just those who are very insecure, angry, uneducated and who don’t have anything left to hold onto to feel validated in life who still TRY to hold on to the old ways of thought.

    Sadly I think the porn industry is one of the LAST industries to not have awakened to the fact the racial classification is coming to a close in America. Amazing how an industry that has the potential of being groundbreaking and progressive has managed to miss the boat (I’m starting to see now that a big part of the reason may be due to the mass quantity caucasions from economically and educationally challenged backgrounds who make up the majority of the current “porn community”).

    Mariah is clearly not “dodging” black cock, latin cock or anything else. She’s dodging being in projects that perpetuate a very negative stereotype and ideal that may be attached to a particular ethnicity.

    Mariah also is one of the FEW adult industry talents who is being OPEN and HONEST here about her thoughts on this “racial” issue. Yes, certain things are not PC to say, but in this day and age people have more respect for honesty than political correctness. I know I do.

    If the adult industry truly was NOT racist “IR” wouldn’t be a “category” AND on agency talent data sheets, it wouldn’t be a “checkbox” to say you do, or don’t do.

    I’d like to know who came up with the current talent data sheet “system”, because I have a few editing suggestions for it.

    For example, as a black woman, since IR is such a big deal for so many white girls and boys who are talents, I’d like a checkbox that says WTT – that way people can know that yes, I’m ok (or not ok) with performing with white trailer trash.

    Just a thought.

    mariah, is your son cool with you doing porn? also, did you quit shooting for bang bros. and reality kings? thanks

  38. newklear Says:

    Given his age, he probably doesn’t understand why he has so many different daddies who are not even of the same color

  39. AL Says:

    What was referenced in True Romance is true of people from southern Spain. The Moors conquered Spain and spent a few hundred years there, hence that’s why Antonio Banderas looks like he does. The Italain people are a cousin of Semitic people. Southern Italains look like everyone else in the Mediteranean region, like Greeks, Israeli’s etc. An Italian has no reason whatsoever to ethnically identify as non white or non European. IMO, some Jews are the only “white people” that can identify with being non European. In New York there are mad female Italian wiggers that you would swear are Puerto Rican cause they front so much. Newsflash: you’re white.

    newklear i think any reference to my son in any negative way is uncalled for.

    My son doesn’t know what I do for a living. He is a great kid and a straight A student in the magnet program in LA. He excels in baseball and basketball and loves his mother. When the time comes it will be horrible to try and explain to him but when the time comes I will have to deal with it.

    I have stopped shooting except for very special projects and I spoke to the owner of Bang Bros for an hour the other day during my drive to Miami about doing something together in March. Reality Kings is pretty much out unless they bring something above and beyond their usual stuff.

  42. jni1973 Says:

    Sorry Mariah Moors were Black Africans. Bye the way just by looking at you we can all tell that you’re Black. Just like when you usd to shoot for Video Team and West Coast.

  43. Mariah Milano Says:

    hahahaha do some research.

    And amazing that you are telling me what ethnicity I am lol My dad is 100% Sicilian. His parents, MY grandparents came fro Sicily in the 1950’s. My mom is northern Italian and Spanish from Spain, but light complected.

    I used to shoot for Video Team and West Coast a lot because they promoted me as mixed but I’m not.

  44. Buck Swope Says:

    Apparently Mariah didn’t watch ‘True Romance’

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kXjcf47y-zk

    Clifford Worley: You’re Sicilian, huh?
    Coccotti: Yeah, Sicilian.
    Clifford Worley: Ya know, I read a lot. Especially about things… about history. I find that shit fascinating. Here’s a fact I don’t know whether you know or not. Sicilians were spawned by niggers.
    Coccotti: Come again?
    Clifford Worley: It’s a fact. Yeah. You see, uh, Sicilians have, uh, black blood pumpin’ through their hearts. Hey, no, if eh, if eh, if you don’t believe me, uh, you can look it up. Hundreds and hundreds of years ago, uh, you see, uh, the Moors conquered Sicily. And the Moors are niggers.
    Coccotti: Yes…
    Clifford Worley: So you see, way back then, uh, Sicilians were like, uh, wops from Northern Italy. Ah, they all had blonde hair and blue eyes, but, uh, well, then the Moors moved in there, and uh, well, they changed the whole country. They did so much fuckin’ with Sicilian women, huh? That they changed the whole bloodline forever. That’s why blonde hair and blue eyes became black hair and dark skin. You know, it’s absolutely amazing to me to think that to this day, hundreds of years later, that, uh, that Sicilians still carry that nigger gene. Now this…
    [Coccotti busts out laughing]
    Clifford Worley: No, I’m, no, I’m quoting… history. It’s written. It’s a fact, it’s written.
    Coccotti: [laughing] I love this guy.
    Clifford Worley: Your ancestors are niggers. Uh-huh.
    [Starts laughing, too]
    Clifford Worley: Hey. Yeah. And, and your great-great-great-great grandmother fucked a nigger, ho, ho, yeah, and she had a half-nigger kid… now, if that’s a fact, tell me, am I lying? ‘Cause you, you’re part eggplant.
    [All laugh]

  45. Mariah Milano Says:

    oh so because it’s in a movie written by Quentin Terentino that makes it true????? Moores were north african muslims, not blacks. here ya go…just looked it up on wikipedia and sure enough, northern african arab people
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Moors
    make sure you checkout the paragraph that says: “In modern Iberia, the term is applied to people of Moroccan ethnicity living in Europe. “Moor” is sometimes colloquially applied to any person from North Africa

  46. Mariah Milano Says:

    still waiting for your reply?

  47. jni1973 Says:

    Sorry Mariah Wiekipedi ia not a credible source for you argument. Oh google Harvard Professer Louis Gates maybe his finding can give you some insite.

    “Further research reveals the Moors were not all of Arab and North African mixed blood as many historians report, many of them were black. According to Ivan Van Sertima, associate professor of African studies at Rutgers University, Black Moors were in every corner of Europe. “Most people do not know that the peoples called Berbers by the classical Greek and Roman historians were black and affiliated with the then contemporary peoples of the East African area.”

  48. jni1973 Says:

    I think that you are a very confused “mixed girl” that hates that fact that she has Black Blood in her. Any Black Male talent that works with in the future (if you are willing)is a Tom.

  49. Mariah Milano Says:

    lol I am NOT the one confused here. I guarantee your weak ass wouldn’t say any of this shit if you met me in person. You’re a brave soul hidden behind the anonymity of your computer.

    So why don’t you ask LT from Elegant Angel or Rico Shades or Josh Stone about me. All successful black directors who have broken ground in this business and who I have also shot for and am friends with. See what they tell you about me.

  50. jni1973 Says:

    I’m not weak I just speak my mind, and I would say the same thing
    to you in person. The funny thing is I used to love watching you scenes until I read some of the things you posted on AdultDVDTalk and on this website, slamming Black and Interracial Porn. I Don’t think that anyone should be forced to have sex with a person of another Race, if they are not willing to. If you don’t do you don’t do but just shut about it. You are not the first confused mixed or light skinned girl has come into the industry and I’m sure you won’t be the last.

  51. Mariah Milano Says:

    hahahahaha I have NEVER said anyone should be forced or required to do interracial scenes. I simply brought up the issues about the girls who use fucking stupid excuses. You ARE weak because you clearly take things out of context to talk shit. And please, link me to anything where I “slammed” interracial and black porn. I would LOVE to read that. We’ll see what you come up with.
