Twitter is where your childhood and celebrity crushes go to die, resurrect like Romero zombie and bite you right in the feels. When Kal Penn came out as a supporter of NYC’s Stop and Frisk and the racist ideology behind it I was forced to give up my teenaged dreams of him one day touching my heart and dick punching my cervix.
My reaction to his tweets, were emotional to say the least. I invite you to the theatre of my mind as I went through al the stages of grief when your shows his ass as a bigot apologist. By friendly request I’ve storyfied my break down.
Yellow Face isn’t okay, not on stage, not on Halloween and not in film – and yes that includes porn. So if you are going to have any hand in creating a porn “parody” of smash hit show that has a fan favorite character who is Korean American, hiring a white actor taping his eyes back and smearing what looks like cheeto dust on his face is just not going to sit well with people.
While I was sick about 2 months ago someone left a pretty interesting comment on one of my toy reviews. It was pretty interesting so I’ll lend my two cents.
“Hey N’Jaila, I was wondering what is your take on racism in escort communities. Sorry this isn’t on topic relative to the review, but I’ve been trying to google it since my friend was talking to me about the “no black men” policy some escorts have. I even read a blog post from a white escort, and while I know women are entitled to do what they want with their bodies and to keep themselves safe, especially in that line of work, it just seems all kind of wrong to me. I mean, we don’t even need anti-miscegenation laws or the sometimes seen lynch mobs anymore b/c people self-select, and in very predictable ways, on and off line. In blatantly racist ways. It’s just something I’ve been thinking about b/c I’ve considered escort work and it’s difficult to navigate this troubling dynamic. And of course as a black escort I’m worried if I could even make a living. Cause the discrimination goes both ways, I’d imagine white escorts get the most business in spite of age and appearance at time. Oh and I realize you may not know much about escort side of work, but it’d still like to hear based on your experience, especially as a woman of color.” Continue reading “N’jaila’s Mail Box : Sex Worker Racism”
The Rebel Profit has more in common with David Duke than Jesus. Watch around the 11:40 mark to hear her tell the story about “Crazy Chinaman” whose genitals are too small to use condoms. She even does the mock accent.
This is a response to Justin Long’s Op-Ed on Luke is Back.
Justin Long Takes a Stand
After reading Justin Long’s frank and open op-ed, I had many questions -Why didn’t this happen already? Will others follow? Will there be a backlash? One thing I never questioned was the frustration and anger behind his choice or my support of it.
The designation of substandard “otherness” has always been imposed on black bodies; the same script has titillated the American public since Birth of a Nation. Even as more racial and ethnic groups enter the gamut they are still weighed on the white vs. black scale. You see it everywhere, politics, entertainment and most openly the sex industry.
I would like to say that I’m 100% for everyone getting the opportunity to be depicted as sensual and whole beings. I support everyone fucking. Most of the erotica I write is categorized as interracial. My support of Justin Long’s choice is not about my own issues with race mixing. I will admit that I am not a porn actress; and actually don’t consume a great deal of heterosexual porn. I am, however, an exotic dancer as well as a journalist who writes and reads a great deal about sex, gender and media. I’m also a mixed race Black woman.
