So, the other day Alexander DeVoe came to MikeSouth.com to comment on a story about the new dictates regarding race over at the AVN awards.
Alexander DeVoe is one of the folks behind the Urban X Awards.
Here’s what he wrote, in pertinent part:
Its [sic] is absolutely absurd to think that the elimination of ETHNIC and INTERRACIAL distinctions of categories will have any effect upon whether or not people of color are recognized at AVN. especially since there are no different RACES of people its [sic] was always an insult to performers of color to be categorized specifically into those categories and NOT considered for categories across the board.
This article is yet another example of how non people of color are out of touch with realityBy the way The Urban X Awards set the Standard for the elimination of categorizations by ethnicity and dropped IR designations long long ago
And by the way “ETHNIC” does not mean “BLACK”
In its original form Urban X Awards was never a BLACK AWARDS SHOW
it was created to honor and celebrate those individuals who had historically been repeatedly overlooked at AVN and other shows
Well, we’re obliged to report that Alexander DeVoe is completely full of shit.
For one thing, the AVN Awards have NEVER segregated performer and sex scene awards by race or ethnicity. Never. They added EXTRA CATEGORIES to specifically honor ethnic productions in addition to the “across the board” categories. But DeVoe is applauding the removal of those categories, making it statistically less likely that performers of color will take home an award.
But there’ another problem with Devoe’s comment: if IR and Interracial categorization, and companies like Blacked are the problem — if they are reflective of a racist mindset — then Urban X awards has promoted racism by DeVoe’s and the intersectionalist/woke community’s own definition.
Let’s pick the 2017 Urban X Awards as an example:
In 2017 DeVoe’s organization gave an award called IR Star of the Year to . . . Riley Reid.
That same year, Urban X handed the award for Studio of the Year to . . . BLACKED.
(This was, of course, after Greg Lansky‘s company — now the target of woke rage — came in as a paying sponsor for the show.)
And who was named Director of the Year by Urban X in 2017?
Correction — not just Greg Lansky . . . Greg Lansky INTERRACIAL ICON!
DeVoe, you’re not only a dumbass, you’re a corrupt fraud, and a hypocrite, AND YOU AND YOUR AWARDS SHOW ARE RACIST BY YOUR OWN STANDARD!
