Daniels had the most prominent part of his career during the second-wave of the so-called Golden Age of Porn. In a period when the segregation of pornographic actors on racial lines was a sensitive issue and top female stars were often reluctant in performing with black males, being a very light-skinned African American man ("everyone thought he just had a great tan") and speaking "smoothly", Daniels could pass for white, securing him roles in top-rated pornographic productions with prominent porn stars such as Marilyn Chambers (Marilyn Chambers' Private Fantasies series) and Nikki Knight, following his debut with a small role in The Legend Of Lady Blue (1978) and also making him the only African American actor the 1980s top star Traci Lords had performed with. Nevertheless, he could also play roles in productions with explicit black theme such as the porn parody Chocolate C.H.I.P.S. (1988) and Caught from Behind V: Blondes and Blacks (1986), the interracial special release in an anal sex video series. Accordingly, Daniels is today foremost credited as a porn actor who had blurred the colour lines in the American porn industry.
