Justin Long Says- “I will No Longer be doing any sort of Interracial Porn”

OP/ED by Justin Long

 

So, as I told you I would, here is the mail. For a long time I have been concerned, stressed, and pissed off to say the least, about the state of racial relations in the adult industry. I too have been guilty to some point as of late by conversing with female stars that don’t do IR. In hind site this was bad, and foolhardy. I am far from a racist having been born to a black father, and a white mother. My father was never around (in fact I have only met him four times in my life and haven’t spoken with, or seen him in over 20 years), and thus I was raised by my white mother and my half sister who is also mixed black and white. Growing up in Oregon partially I have experienced my share of racism. However, until entering the adult industry, I had never experienced it on such a massive level, and had to endure it on a day-to-day basis. With growing up with my mother’s side of the family only I have always been around white people. Growing up however, I have had black influences, as my aunt and mother only dated black men, and visiting and eventually living with my aunt who was the first white woman to ever live in the notorious projects of Seaside, CA.
 
    Enough about my life LOL. So, today I have canceled what work I had in LA and informed my agents that effective immediately, I will no longer be doing any sort of IR porn. This decision was not easy. I am NOT racist as I have stated and obviously could not be with a white mother and family. I will suffer from this decision no doubt, but I feel the mental anguish will be less of a burden then the financial. I feel horrible thinking that this is the only way for people to know exactly how I feel, and more over the only way for me to yell out if you will "what the fuck, this is bullshit". Some will say "well you are being racist yourself in this decision". I would have to agree. It is wrong for anyone to say they won’t work with someone because of skin color or nationality. However, what is a black star to do if he/she is fed up with the racial profiling he/she has to endure everyday in this industry? This is not just about getting between contract stars legs. This is about the fact that every solid thing that a black star is not allotted to earn in the adult industry can be led back to three simple things; agents telling girls "no interracial" or convincing them not to do IR, big companies refusing to shoot a fair percentage of content involving black talent, and girl being given the choice of whether they want to choose co-talent solely on the basis of skin color, or nationality.
 
    This whole situation saddens me to no end. I am pissed off that I served in the military, to protect the freedoms of the same people that would discriminate. I am pissed off that I served in the military, and this is what my country does for me i.e.; nothing – continues to allow discrimination in my work place. So, the normal way this goes down is a girls statement " I don’t do IR I’m sorry, it’s nothing personal". How the fuck could it NOT be personal when a girl tells you that she will NOT work with you because of the color of your skin? Even worse it’s not the color of your skin obviously, because these same girls work with European and Latin darker skinned male stars that are not labeled black. The same contract and non-contract stars that say they don’t do IR are still working with non-white performers. To make it worse a % of them are trying or are getting fucked off screen by black males either talent or civilian. So, is IR just a term cause it sure in the hell doesn’t mean anyone not of that girl’s nationality. For example if an Asian girl doesn’t do IR, it should mean she only works with Asian male stars right? Well that’s not the case, it means she will work with anyone that is not Labeled Black by the adult industry. Some girls say I don’t like the movies that they put me in when I do IR so I don’t do it. Guess what? We black people don’t like the movies that makes us look like we just degrade white girls either. Do you realize that black male stars staple often times is shooting BBW movies (nothing wrong with BBW I adore a lot of them, and they rarely had attitude which is so common among female stars) but when was the last time you saw a top white or non-black male star have to staple his income with BBW shoots? I’m a skinny brotha. Again nothing wrong with BBW women (and I mean that), I have gone out with some in my personal life, because looks and a body aren’t everything, but I’m just trying to show the very un-even contrast in the industry.
 
    Is being Black a target? Is it the kiss of death in the industry? A couple male performers I know are black, but very light skinned, and seem to work with these girls on a regular basis as they have not been LABELED black . Non-IR girls have no issues shooting with them, so you would think maybe it’s just the color of the skin, but then you get to darker European, Asian and Latino male talent and all of a sudden brown skin has no bearing. So, does "it’s not personal" continue to fly as a real statement? Absolutely not. Girls and agents like to say that saving IR extends the life of a girl’s career. I have very serious doubts about that and will use a star I have worked with many times as an example. This girl has shot IR from day one in the industry (as far as I am aware) very early in her career I had shot with her more then any male in the industry (white , black or other), now she is arguably the biggest contract star in  the world. So tell me exactly how did IR extend or hurt her career. The fact is,  that non-IR girls use black male talent as stepping stones, and that is morally bankrupt in thought and action. Girls are permitted to do IR and then not do IR and then start to do it again when there work slows. The sad part is Black male talent are willing to shoot with these girls, and basically telling them it’s ok to exhibit this moral lacking behavior, and it’s alright to disrupt our income. Black males are telling these girls that we are OK with the scraps that they are throwing our way.
 
    The fact is, is every girl that refuses to do IR is saying (regardless if they speak the words) I’m doing what’s best for me and I don’t care what happens to you (Mr. Black male talent). Every girl that refuses or dips in and out of doing IR affects every black male star’s annual income. If contract stars did IR, your damn right I and others would have more scenes, because we have directors that would kill for those scenes. It is the same with all non-IR shooting females. Black males have no problem if the girls are selective in their choosing of who they shoot with and who they won’t shoot with. That’s fine, but to just say "sorry your black " hello wake the fuck up. It’s offensive, and then to follow it up with "it’s nothing personal" that just makes us even more angry because there is no way to take it but personal. The girl will take 10 cocks in a day, ass, pussy, and mouth and multiple cocks at a time as long as none of them are black? Come on, we are black, not stupid.
 
    So people ask "why do you even care" here are just a few answers; for awards they look at the top girls movies, so if  blacks can’t work with the top girls then how do WE get looked at or even come close to getting awards. I would sure like to fly to Jamaica or Hawaii to shoot a feature. No Go. This is just a couple of trickle down effects, and it doesn’t even scratch the surface. Does any one think it weird that at AVN their are 15 males nominated for best male performer and every year their are never more than three black males in that category, and 95% of the time it’s won by a white or I’ll say non-black performer that is hooked-up with the Vivids and Wickeds and VCA’s of the industry? However, even more funny is if you look at the nominees for most unsung male performer @ AVN, their are usually around 8 or 9 guy’s nominated and the list is predominately black male performers. How about equality? It’s just an Idea. How many non-black males are under contract right now? How many black males are under contract right now? How many white females are under contract right now? Now how many black females are under contract right now? Starting to get the picture. Black people are starving and getting real jobs and leaving the industry cause they can’t pay their bills, but their counter parts are like nothing major has happened because half are under contract with guaranteed money and the other half are working because the economy put mostly smaller companies out of biz not the big ones. So, who do you think shot the majority of IR? Smaller companies. Follow twitter, Sure some is a lie but you will see people post "I’m working" "I’m on set". Start keeping track and tell me what you see over a week and then lets chat.
 
    This is trickle down economics people. Top white girls refuse to work with black males. Top companies refuse to shoot black males. Top companies, and girls often could give a flying fuck about black females. How is it that black females on average make less, and work less then white females? How is it that often even if a Wicked or VCA or Digital Playground shoots a feature and has a black talent in it, its like one black talent out of a cast of like 7 or more. Are they really saying that, that is how the world is normally ? Or is this their own private little white world? Last time I checked black pirates were common in the 1700’s, also last time I checked blacks were a strong majority in the military, so how are war movies going to have one black guy out of an entire military unit? For too long the industry has (in large part) just used black people as tokens. Unfortunately for the blacks and fortunate for the world, black people in this business are too damned stupid to stand together and say enough is enough. Too many people looking out for themselves, and worrying about what the company owners will say. Here’s a clue, big companies don’t give a fuck about black talent. Behind closed doors to many in the industry we are "NIGGERS". That’s fact, that’s the way of the world is.
 
    They like our music, and love our food, and women but despise us, and will never look at us as equals, and this is the same conclusion drawn from some blacks in the industry when told "I’m sorry I don’t do IR, nothing personal though". Funny, a friend (white female star) just texted me back after I canceled our content shoot (told her I was no longer doing IR) her response was "did I do something wrong?" Guess it goes to show we all have an issue being told your money is gonna get fucked up because of the color of your skin, huh? I’m tired, I don’t want to yell, I don’t want to have a target on my back, and I don’t want to lose work or have to cause waves, but I also don’t want to feel like some fucking leper at work either. I would rather be judged as an individual when it comes to talent selection. Does color have to come in sometimes? Yes of course, you can’t have a black man play George Washington anymore then you could have a white woman play Whoopi Goldberg. Do you have any idea what it feels like to go to work and have 60% of your co-workers say "sorry won’t work with you, you’re black". Trust me it’s a shitty feeling, and then to have your advancement opportunities capped because you can’t work with some of that 60%. Shit now you’ll just get mad. My actions and reactions are in direct correlation with the actions and inflammatory speech and actions that are being taken and enacted against people of my color.
 
The racism and discrimination needs to stop. Equality has been earned.

  1. beyond that, lets quit pretending that black people dont watch or buy porn.. even if it is in less quantity, people like Byron are more watched by blacks then jenna ever will be … so when you imply that she deserved the hall of fame first, then it can only be construded that it is because she has reached a very white audiance..

    so is that the trick???? if you are marketable to whites then you actually get recognition???? but if you only reach blacks because the companies only promote you to blacks and refuse to put you in front of whites citing that whites dont want you (which many fans and people have stated that that a lie) then you can work just as hard if not harder and your own industry looks over you because you dont reach the 40 year old white male?

    if that is the truth then how does rocco seffredi and other non white male stars get so many awards????

    Hmm maybe because the companies put them in front of white people and in the fore front???

    and why is that???/ because contract female stars refuse to fuck black men????

    @ Justin

    That’s where the expertise/luck or whatever you want to call it that the steve h & steve o of this world have. You can’t argue with the success of their companies and their choices for contact girls to get them there. Personally.. I’m not with the majority who think lupe fuentes is hot… But with only a limited number of titles she has blown up a little because of the fans… And wicked will capitalize on that. I’m not a huge fan, but I’m sure they made a good signing.

  3. RomanT

    @ Justin

    Well again its back to the econimics.. If whites buy more than blacks.. Yeah that’s the way it is. That’s why I mentioned before that some of this lies in ” getting more in the black consumers pocket”

    Jenna made an atomic bomb size crater in this biz… And you know it was more than just her fuck flicks. Love her or hate her… She handled her business. That’s why she’s a hall of famer.

    Byron… ( For all the dues he’s paid and accomplishments/contributions he’s made) may never be able to drop a bomb that big. Maybe it is because he’s not a white girl with fake tits… But that’s what sells.

  4. Roman you’re not getting it I know blonde and fake tits sell, but as long as brothers are restricted from working with those girls then we are stuck not being able to drop bobms and make craters .. get it now??? it’s trickle down economics..

    Lets not forget steve hersch made bank offf black talent.. but this is how he repays them for what they have done for him. he allows girls to say NO blacks and has not issue one with it.. And please Jenna can’t even run her own life.. her ex husband created and built what she has now through divorce…

    thats how the story goes I hear from people who know anyway.. so as far as I’m concearned she didn’t create shit. again it was handed to her and she just stood in front of a camera and looked cute..

    all this is irrealivant anyway as the majority of girls that SAY NO to IR are not contract girls.. they are girls that say NO to IR until they don’t have money and then say OK I WILL LET black men fuck me now and expect open arms from the black community..

  5. hahhahahahahaha LOLOLOLOL>

    Read the first 4 sentences in the aids healthcare article…

    *********** OSHA’s BOARD determines that porn stars are (drum role please ) EMPLOYEE’S **********

    Under california state labor law and employer nor an employee can discriminate against race, or color among other things

    Fact —— every company that hires a girl that refuses to work with a Black or other nationality talent is in VIOLATION of CALIFORNIA STATE LAW

  6. jeremiahsteele

    I don’t know if OSHA cares about that, Justin. However, if OSHA wants to cite a guy’s left nut for being in violation of his right nut, I’m sure they could come up with something.

    If I don’t get hired for an interracial gangbang with a white chick, can I call that “discrimination”?

  7. LOLOL Jeremy,

    NO but if you can find a girl that refuses to fuck white guys in the industry, that actually gets hired then you might have some luck… but last time I checked… uhhhhh over time you might find 1 or 2 girls that have refused to work with non black guys LOLOL so I think you are SOL

  8. RomanT

    Like I said..Jenna might have fucked it up by herself.. We will never know. It became what it was. But remember he also dated Chasey… And when he was with Chasey she was that it girl… It didn’t work that way for chasey and him.. so I have to give jenna a little credit.. Lightning hasn’t stuck again for him either…. Anyway fuck it

    I get what your saying… But I think there’s more to it than just pointing out in the crowd and saying racist. The white male over 35 accounts for a majority of the sales in this industry. In my humble opinion… WE.. As niche markets or minority groups have to level that playing field on our own…WE have to start building brands that our respective communities will support… WE have to find ways to get them to spend money to support our stars like the whites do… Just like the Steves did. Because if we don’t do that… WE give them the power… They don’t take it from us.

    Outside of that.. I know that on a day to day basis you have people that won’t work with you based on race… And I can understand all the feelings that must come with that. I can see your side but also have some reservations about telling someone they can’t have sexual preferences.

    You and I are cool… But I think we are officially finger cuffed on this one.

  9. Roman — racist and discriminative are two seperate things.. I am not calling every girl that doesn’t do IR a racist.. shit with my ex I have had her friends in OUR house that refuse and still refuse to do IR..

    I have in the past conversed and been friendly with girls that refuse to do IR.. i found that counter productive though and quit very quickly as it makes those girls think that it’s OK

    Porn consumers watch what producers put out.. if the only porn in the world was black on white.. every one would still watch porn… some would bitch but they would still buy it, because at the end of the day only bi men gay men and women buy porn to look at the guy.. by the way thats a butt load of people..

    a strong amount of gay men buy and watch straight porn.. they like the guys and can’t get the guys in gay movies because they are straight (well not always true enough) guys…

    I saw a statistic back in like 07′ that said over 60% of the content coming out of SFV was IR.. so please tell me if white men are the biggest buyer of porn, then why is 60% of the content IR?

    I have yet to see actual numbers on what real demographics are (in fact I am going to do some research obver the next few days)

    Like the census.. I don’t think statistics are even a fair representation.. do you think the 18 year old black guy from the hood is being questioned in the survey??? how are they even getting to him??? porn site doesn’t ask race for a membership… adult book stores dont keep track of the race or age of a consumer.. older white males are more stable then young people of any nationality

    Older people tend to fill out surveys and companies that do surveys know that and they go to them to do there job of surveying.. I would question the stats and question them by how they conducted the survey

    Do they do it at convenntions.???? thru mail??? how??? aint no company ever just called my phone or sent me mail asking what type of porn I buy… get where I’m going???

    Maybe we have all been fed this bullshit that white males in their fourties are the major buyers because becuase it’s seems logical but in all acctuality it’s not the case.. maybe the movies sell more juyst because it’s jesse jane versus savahnna ster.. and maybe because the studios have put money into marketing jesse jane so men see her more and she is branded more

    maybe because of that marketing and branding and money thats put into her she sales more movies.. but maybe just maybe if that same branding marketting and money was put into savahnna stern and the movie had some black male talent in it then it would sell just as well or better????

    Like i said if you have a brand new girl and she is signed to a contract before her movies ever hit the shelf or web then how can you say the public demanded it??? you cant !!!! because the public aint even seen her yet.. the studios demanded it.. and they did it before another studio signed her.. So who is to say another girl wouldn’t had been a bigger hit with the consumer..???

    Look at girls and their sites.. I bet you sara jay gets more hits daily then any contract girls site.. sara fucks prodominately black males.. same thing with raven black.. we have so many nationalities in this country and to to listen to stats that you have no clue how they were really collected is silly..

    I would bet the girl that gets the most hits on her site in the world does IR

    ( i say girl meaning private site and that becauase a brazzer or bang bros has girls that people want to see that wont work with black males so they join the site the girls on) also because they are the two most marketed and wel known sites

    I will research stats of porn consumers and also research the “how’ the stats were gathered in each report.. One thing I can guarantee.. surveyors are not going door to door in the hood asking what porn people watch.. nor are random households geting random calls about porn.. the options of where they get these stats is actually very limited if you thinkk about it..

    Maybe white older guys are just more prone to write a company or go to a convention because of means or location… maybe younger people dont give a shit and consume porn but aint waistin there time to write someone or are’nt so sprung because they are young and get pussy that looks and sometimes ends up in porn more so then older white guys

    maybe brothas prefer to just jack off and then say fuck it.. maybe older white guys go to adult book stores more then blacks, asians, or latinos, for whatever reason.. one would think mormons would be the last place to look for a porn star as well but we have some and one is one of the biggest porn stars in the world (a girl)

    get where I’m going???? maybe it’s just the girl marketing promotion and branding that sells the movies not the matter of weather it is a black or white guy fucking the girl…

  10. jeremy,

    Did anyone ever find out how Richard Montfort passed???? He was a nice guy.. I had shot with him many many times.. in fact I had shot with him with in a couples months prior to his death, but I had never heard about his passing and was out of LA by august and then gone thru January 10′ ..

    Wow, you saying something the other night was the first I had heard about it… that blows.. he was a cool cat.. R.I.P. Richard…

  11. RomanT

    @ Justin

    Like I said.. We are deadlocked…

    The best I can really muster at this point is.. producers will make what they can sell a lot of.

    Lol I’m sort of the opposite of Monica Foster.. I’m much more expressive and make much better arguments when I’m able to verbalize my thoughts. I’m not much of a writer.

    I firmly believe that a big part of the change your looking for lies in the development of the minority markets. You can look up statistic online all day or listen to the lip service that YOUR FANS will give you ( which obviously is skewed) But I have been out there on the streets, I’ve been to the adult video stores, I’ve been to the big truck stops in ontario.. I’ve asked men of all races what their preferences were.

    The blacks I’ve spoken to… Maybe a cross section of about 100 men.. And mostly truckers from all over the states.. I would estimate 85% of them wanted black on black porn only… With the other 15% being a mixed bag of IR,asian,latin,lesbian and even some beastiality,.. True story man. But that 85% is a big number. That’s why I told you the other day… Somethings not right with the product being put out.

    I don’t even remember what were talking about…lol and I write all this from my blackberry, so if you want to debate my after the calosha meeting ( ill be there to look at shelleys tits) I will bring a crew and we can get this on film. Lol

    I’m losing it… Email me.. Send your number and we can hash this out on the phone a little…then you can post this shit for both of us.

    I told you I’m launching a prod co… I’ve been working on it for over a year… I had a professional business plan written that took mountains of research…part of that research was getting out there and talking to real guys of all races..

    I haven’t made a movie yet… But I was able to get a major distro deal for cable and everything based on all the shit I’ve done for this… I’m not a name in this industry and I don’t have any big companies helping me… Ive had to be on point with everything I’ve done to this point.

    So the numbers I just gave you.. You can take that shit to the bank as being very accurate.

  12. I’ll mail you roman —-

    did you see shelleys reply to me???? guess she finally decided to acknowldge me.. thanks shelley .. guess i have to wait tell tuesday or longer for the answers huh…

  13. Curly I agree and the truth is is those numbers as far as male to male are skewed but harder as obviously less males are in the hall of fame then females.. but I did point out some females and the differnce…

    males are not inducted every single year so.. and the list I found didn’t have dates inducted by alot of people male or female..

    hall of fame really should have nothing to do with success honestly in my opinion.. if someone came in in 93′ and is still in in 10′ and has done just as many movies or more then someone that came in in 95′ and is still in in 10′ then the person that came in first should be inducted first.

    But we are not seeing that… india came in years before tera patrick and according to iafd has done more movie if i remeber correctly then tera, but tera has been inducted in 09′ but i dont see india anywhere on the list

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_members_of_the_AVN_Hall_of_Fame

    so how did all these guys come in after Byron but he’s not inducted?????

    how is it he has done more movies then them all (except marcus) and Evan came in a half a decade after byron has lees movies according to iafd.com and is inducted but byron is not…

    hall of fame is a popularity contest is all that can be construded.. So if you are black and not a chosen one by the big studio’s, then is that the deal ??? you get no recognition??? you don’t get what people that have been in less time and have done less work get as far as recognition for your hard work and deication?

    What this tells every black person is.. is if you are not “lucky” enough to be chosen by the big studios to work for them, then you get nothing….

    starting to see the problem and where all the antamocity come from from the black people.. if people want to call me the angry balck man then fine.. they are starting to do the same with Obama too.. but if the shoe was on the other foot then you have to ask yourself, wuld people be calling them the angry white man????

    Make no mistake .. i have personally heard white irls just as pissed and ranting and raving and yelling because they dont get the shots that the jennas and others get and they are often prettier and better performers that are’nt as picky as she was and others are..

    This is not just a black issue but blacks are very much targeted from the get by being refused work because of thier skin color..

    thats the point.. it starts with agents then sudios then girls then prromotion and branding then trickles down to awards and work and money..

    All that is being coordinned off as off limits to 90% of the balck people in the industry.. major features use 6 black guys and 3 consistantly.. (meaning usually not to be confused with often) the black females even worse they use 2 primarily maybe rotating sometimes with another 2.. and low and behold those are the black people that account for 95% of any awards awarded to blacks

    It’s so obvious, if it was funny you would have to laugh.. but to the ones on the recieving end of this bullshit it aint funny .. it’s laughable for about the first 2 or 3 years then it’s starts to really piss you off because you are out their working your ass off ( which means you’re at risk more because younare worrking more)and often more then the ones that are sitting around working half as much and they are making twice as much and getting all the recognition…

    The real sad part is, half of the people that are working twice as hard, are often better talent (all around) then the talent that get the awards.. it’s absurd.. but it all comes down to what movies are up for awards?? what company produced it??? who is the talent (girl) or who has the talent worked with (for guys).. how much money did the sttudio spend in advertising (in the case of avn’s)… if you are working for studios that produce and are constantly in features then you WILL get awards..

    if you are a gonzo actor because you have never got a shot in major features, then you probably wont and never will get an award.. even though you might be a bad ass talent…

    Ask any talent that will shoot from the hip and they will tell you the same… I’m not making shit up for a cause.. i got better things to do then fight for a lie..

    what i’m spittin is real shit that you learn after being in the game for a long period.. people would think they could have this game figured out instantly but their are so many damn politics and facets, no one has it figured out even close to instantly.. it takes years to learn some of the inside bullshit that cracks off in this bitch..

    Thats real talk

    My understanding Justin is that Richard passed over the hard way, through heart attack. He was a nice guy. At least he escaped before the industry died.

    Well, this thread is on it’s way to 500. It’ll take 5 minutes just to load all the comments.
