'Daily Show' Tackles Racism in Porn

LOS ANGELES—A segment on Wednesday night's edition of Comedy Central's The Daily Show examined a topic hotly bantered about of late, in part due to the controversial lack of diversity in this year's Oscar nominations: the perpetuation of racist motifs in porn. In the piece, Daily Show correspondent Roy Wood Jr. discusses the issue with industry luminaries Misty Stone, Prince Yahshua and Lisa Ann, as well as sex therapist and author Dr. Marty Klein, bringing particular focus to the racist bent of many a title (Black Wives Matter, 12 Inches a Slave, Black Bull for Hire) and the only-in-porn practice among a considerable portion of the white female talent pool of charging more to work with black men. As accentuation of the latter point, in perhaps the piece's most illuminating bit, Ann scrawls a long list across two whiteboards of acts the typical caucasian starlet will perform before doing interracial ... with prostitution ranking one notch higher. Of course, this being The Daily Show, the whole segment takes a lighthearted approach to the subject and ends with a fantasy all-colors-of-the-rainbow orgy scene featuring Stone, September Reign, Lauren Phillips, Priya Rai, Luna Star, Nikita Denise, Tony Martinez and, natch, Ron Jeremy. Helping put that scene together was industry personality James Bartholet, who got involved when Daily Show producers contracted Stone, whom Bartholet's Galaxy Publicity represents. Bartholet told the producers, "I can bring in all these people, and you can have this Benetton commercial with all these different races," he explained to AVN. "They loved the idea." See the segment in its entirety here. Also check out the web-only companion piece with Wood pitching his own porn series offering positive portrayals of black people, Affirmative Actions (including appearances by Phillips, Jeremy and Alana Evans).
