Family of slain black teen asks for ban on racist, rape porn

The family of a murdered 19-year-old girl is asking the United Kingdom to ban pornography that encourages racism, rape, and violence against women.

In 2011, Catherine Wynter, who is black, was stabbed to death by Tony Bushby, who is white.

Bushby, who was eventually sentenced to a minimum of 25 years in prison, regularly viewed violent porn under titles such as "rape porn" and "submissive black girl porn." A martial arts instructor, he also looked up how to dig graves and how to burn a human body, and created several fake social media profiles to convince Wynter to trust him for the eight months they knew each other.

"You derived sexual excitement from the infliction of knife wounds on her," Judge Andrew Bright told him at his sentencing.

Now, two years after his conviction, Wynter's family wants pornography that shows violence against black women made illegal. Her sister, Sabrina, told The Sunday Times that such films are too easy to find and may be promoting crimes that have racial motivation.

According to Enough is Enough President and CEO Donna Rice, violence against women is closely related to viewing pornography.

"Much of the online material is extreme -- group sex, rape, etc.,” Rice told LifeSiteNews. “Peer-reviewed research and anecdote evidence show that this material is a fueling factor in sexual violence against women."

According to Rice, one study showed that out of "304 scenes analyzed, 88.2 percent contained physical aggression, principally spanking, gagging, and slapping, while 48.7 percent of scenes contained verbal aggression, primarily name-calling."

"Perpetrators of aggression were usually male," according to Rice's data, "whereas targets of aggression were overwhelmingly female."

Several international studies have shown pornography is directly linked to sexual predation. In Britain alone, at least 4,562 minors -- 98 percent male -- were responsible for 5,028 sex offenses from 2009 to 2012, which experts attributed primarily to pornography.

“Women of all races are treated as sex objects,” Rice said. “It's not as much about race as it is about objectifying women as sex objects to be used or abused, [but] it is certainly possible that someone with existing racist prejudice would use ebony porn to fuel their racism."

"The messages that are portrayed in this material actually can lead to acting out," Rice said. "Often times, people act on what they see, and pornography is more violent today than in the past.”
