Porn Star Diesel Washington Responds To Critics

In a very powerful, intelligent, but clearly pissed response to critics, Porn star Diesel Washington discusses his film choices and explains his views on race in the porn industry
after a posting appeared on Rod2.0.
(see his response below my note).
----------------------------------
Note: Diesel, this is Joe Hawkins, producer of Blatino Oasis and the Blatino Erotica Awards (BEA). As you may know, these awards were created to recognize men of African or Latin descent for their work in the adult film industry because we noticed that the existing adult gay mainstream video awards were not recognizing these actors.
The BEA's is just entering our 3rd year, so in response to the comment on your blog about our ceremony maybe not wanting to recognize your work, the only reason that we haven't gotten to honor your work is because we are so new and just haven't made a connection until now. We appreciate your views about race and the porn industry because we know that so much of what you are saying is true. Stay strong and keep doing you!

All below posted on the blog of Porn Star: Diesel Washington

Here, I was to write a nice post about what is going on with things in Porn, and this happens!!! I dont know where to start??.....I will break the ideas into sections. First, we are going to talk about this "Angry Black Man" thing. Im getting tired of hearing it over and over from people, its annoying me. Secondly we are going to talk about this Reverse Racism Shit!!! Im so tired of hearing it, I get it from both sides people!!

And One of the Biggest Subjects : Me being a Sell Out????????!!! Ouch that one hurts!!! No better way to handle this but jump right in:

The "Angry Black Man" role........ I dont know what the fuck is up with people???? I do fucking Porn!!!!...... My sexuality belongs to me!!!
But I share it through Vids, So I dont know what bugs people more???..... The Fact that I fuck hard as hell...and don't have a smile on my face, while Doing it???..... The Fact that in real Life and Porn, I'm a Top and don't bottom?????.... Maybe I have to do more Love scenes?????

When I came into the Industry, I wanted to make a Big Splash and be that Monster Fucker!! And maybe I played that character so well that people can't shake the idea... Diesel Washington is a character.... I didn't base it off a Stereotype!!!!

The Big Bad Macho Black Fucker... Geez. I feel bad that People call me a Stereotype..when IM A TOP AND LIKE TO FUCK HARD!! Period!! Its not an act, its what I like to do in the Bedroom and on Film!! Only that!!

To Me, I thought I was showing off for the camera and showing skills that people would say "Damn He knows How to Fuck!!" But I guess Im wrong!!! At this point, I dont give a fuck anymore....its not worth fighting....But there has to be something more to this "Angry Black Man" thing...??? To me, it sounds like People want me to smile more when Im fucking LOL.... But Hey Ur Still Watching Me!!! So keep on doing that!!

Now this Reverse Racism Shit!!! Wow!!! I wrote about this in another blog, but I will talk about it again... I get all this Hate email from people(who are not avid readers of my blog) saying I don't like my own Kind...Whiteboy crazy...Uncle Tom bah bah bah.... Ouch!!!
You Guys Dont Know Me!! Never Met Me!! So FUCK OFF!! Seriously there are some Ignorant People out there!!! I was born Black, I'm staying Black, and I will Die a Black Man!!!

From my point of view, I get it from both sides... But since I play Low Key(on Race Issues) on my blog it seems that I have to be very vocal now so u will understand!!!

Some People in the Black Community say "Diesel doesnt like Black Guys" and this is based off what???????? U dont know me!!!

I was an Exclusive with TitanMen for 2 1/2 years, I had contracted work with one studio only(that is the choice I wanted to build the Diesel Brand) in that time.. I have worked with an Asian Model, four Latino models, one black model(Markus Ram)Models from France, Italy, Germany. I have worked with so many different kinds of models, its ignorant to say "Diesel doesnt Like Men of Color" do my Movie history... Fuck People!!!

U act like Im the guy that does the Casting.... I can't believe I'm explaining myself to the ignorant people(they are small minded they wont learn)who are making assumptions about my lifestyle offscreen like it's their business!!!... U don't know me or ever will!!! I dont deal with Ignorant Fucks!!Im a Strong,Proud and Confident Black Man... I wouldnt have it any other way!!

And of course he is not the casting director but he admits in his post that the bondage porn was "supposed" to "remind people of slavery."

Way to go. Thanks for telling Diesel to keep up that behavior. If I'm going to choose between something Rod reports and the rants of a race-obsessed black escort and porn star who COMPLAINS when white gay porn stars don't want to film scenes with him ...

PS. Diesel Washington's Manhunt profile said "No blacks" and then "White Pref".

Most of us who follow adult entertainment knows that when an actor appears on the cover of a movie, apparently there must be a fan base demanding more movies with that particular actor. With that being said, I think Diesel would have enough leverage to demand the types of scenes or possibly even directing a feature himself. Yes, obstacles exist in both straight and gay porn for African American actors, so you must be proactive to make it change.
Making an appearance at the Blatino Erotica Awards would certainly clear any misconception many of your African American fans (I'm sure you have some), may have regardless to what personal preferences are. Joe said it best, "Stay strong and keep doing you! There are many fine African American brothers to act with, BEA proves that.
