It’s 2015. Gay marriage is legal, transgender Americans have been given a public platform, and our first black president is finishing up his second term. Here in the United States, we’re feeling mighty progressive, which might be why porn’s blatant mislabeling of one of its most popular genres has some declaring racism.In theory, interracial porn could refer to sex between people of different races—but it doesn’t. The term “interracial” has a much different connotation when applied to adult entertainment. Within the porn vernacular, the term interracial denotes black and white and refers mostly to black guy/white girl action. In any other business this might be considered racist, but in porn the lines aren’t as clear.
Incredulous as it may seem, the myth that women will degrade their careers by performing with black men still exists. Who purports these views is unclear, though some industry insiders have a good guess.

Now for the life of me, I don’t understand that,” says Shades. “Historically, if you look back over the last five to ten years, a large range of the girls that were very popular did interracial scenes—that’s not hyperbole, that’s the reality. At the end of the day, everyone from Sasha Grey to Lisa Ann, I don’t think anyone can question the level of their success in this business, and they have done plenty of interracial scenes. Plenty.”
