America produces most of the world’s pornography, an industry that grosses $15billion dollar annually in the US alone. That is with little regulation and the widest audience for speculation known to modern-day man. You can tickle your fancy with any and all fantasies you so may choose on the world wide web. And it caters to all races, and unfortunately, even all ages (illegal as it may be). Some choose the lighter, more subtle route while others may enjoy a raunchier display of affection. And then there are the other-others, who have chosen a more historical route to sexual encounters.
The latest trend to catch on in the secret world of sex was found by writer/journalist Jamel Shabazz who writes:
One day, I Googled negative terms for Black women just to see what I’d find. One of the phrases was “ghetto bitch,” and to my surprise, a pornographic site called Ghetto Gaggers appeared.
Capitalizing off of the torture and inhumane treatment of Black women, “Ghetto Gaggers” is a site that is new to the mainstream but has been around for some time. Featuring a group of white middle-aged men, Black women are sexually abused and physically tortured through gagging, humiliation, racist mockery, and violence. Sounds familiar?
As proven through videos uploaded on the site, most–if not all– of the participants are not under mutual understanding about the actions that take place thereafter signing the agreement. And many porn stars who believed they were aware of the proceeding details before they agreed have quit the industry after the taping, according to Shabazz. Read a few more details from Shabazz’s piece below:
“After we get through with them they’re going to have to see a psychiatrist for the rest of their lives,” one attacker boasts on camera. In a typical video, three or four men take turns physically and mentally destroying their victims. During 90 minutes of barbarism, the perpetrators spit in their faces, slap them, stomp them and force some to crawl on all fours with chains around their necks. In other scenes, the women have watermelons smashed on their heads and then are forced to eat the melon, along with the men’s semen. Some women have their faces shoved into a toilet, much to the pleasure of the assailants. During the grotesque finale, the men shove their penises deep inside the women’s throats until they vomit into a large dog bowl, which is emptied on them. As the humiliated women cry, a host promises fans there will be new girls every week!
This new form of psychological warfare is gaining momentum and popularity among racists. There are now hundreds of sites specializing in the sexual destruction of the “ghetto bitch”; from the now defunct “NaziNiggers”, which featured white me in Nazi gear violating black women, to “Exploited Black Teens,” where a white man has sex with underage black girls, to “White Boys Stomp,” where the home page trumpets “We Hunt Down Black Sluts!” Ghetto Gaggers also has a spin-off site, EbonyCumDumps.com, which shares the same concept as Ghetto Gaggers, but with less brutalization.
I most definitely have been taken aback by this piece of information, but I can’t say that it has surprised me. In the day-and-age where everything Black women do, see, touch, and think is scrutinized and picked apart by not only the media, but even our very own is a norm for me now. From a proclaimed scientist releasing “evidence” that Black Women Are Less Attractive to the latest NYT piece entitled Black Women and Fat— who is actually worried about the Black woman? Besides the rebuttals to these pieces that come after its already popularized publication, what is the motivation for these articles? Are they written to reveal the truth or to degrade a population? Is a woman who would assume and interpret misguided claims about her own identity doing so to move herself forward or to gain clarity with an audience? It seems to be that we’re always on the list for endangered species but never in consideration for preservation.
Jamel Shabazz concludes it best: “When mainstream society can’t see Black women’s beauty, or recognize their worth and dignity, maybe the psychopathic hatred of “Ghetto Gaggers” is the end result.”
The most baffling thing that’s occurred to me in 2012 is the unrelenting pulse for a confirmation that change has come. Not necessarily Obama’s change, but the change that was dreamt, sought, marched, and supposedly achieved: MLK’s change. Still, there’s this ever-lasting pull that tugs with Earth’s gravity and Space’s levity, battling the former’s existence through sight, and the latter’s through conscience. So, everyday, we wake up renewed to a world on television and in walking life that we believe has undergone a transformation like no other country in history. But then, I scroll down my Twitter timeline: George Zimmerman, Phil Mushnick, Joel Ward reactions, Fox News’ actions, and so on and so forth. And then I watch a Black man joke about a Black woman, and suddenly we’re all up for debate in the mouths of the same men who were once our allies against a racist nation and despicable injustice. Could it be that these Black women have yet to speak out because not only do they believe they would ruin their own reputation against strangers, but also within their own community of misguided anger and ridicule? Who really knows these days?
