Most Rich White People Don't Want Condoms in Porn
A measure requiring porn stars to wear condoms appears to have broken down more by race and class than it did by political persuasion.The Los Angeles Times has data breaking down which parts of the county supported the measure and which ones didn't. Minority working class communities like Inglewood and Compton supported the measure by more than 70 percent.
The communities that opposed the measure tended to be whiter and wealthier, including more conservative areas like Rancho Palos Verdes (46 percent voted for it) and more liberal communities like Malibu and West Hollywood (both 46 percent).
"I think that what you see is a no vote amongst white voters, and a yes vote amongst Latinos and African Americans," Darry Sragow, a longtime political strategist and unaffiliated attorney told the Times.
Michael Weinstein, president of the AIDS Healthcare Foundation, which backed the measure, told the Times that the measure was supported by "people who relate to the idea that you can get hurt in the workplace."
It will be interesting to see if this changes the dynamics of the statewide campaign kicking off to require condoms in porn.
