My YouTube channel got a community guideline strike over a video I mirrored by Terrence Williams.
YouTube said that the video was "racist hate speech".
A black man being highly critical of BLM is "racist hate
Thanks for providing the link. I actually watched the entire video.
Call me an elitist, but I find these YouTube videos of random people speaking their minds a waste of time. Irregardless of content, even if the person in question was reciting my personal creed and philosophy of life. I just think there are better ways to seek out others opinions, including messaging boards, where some degree of interaction is possible.
Now down to your issue. I am confused. How does YouTube take down your video, but leave up the same one on a different channel?
I also think they may have been unfair in taking it down, but you are unfair on blaming it on liberals. Their terms of service state:Hate speech
We encourage free speech and try to defend your right to express unpopular points of view, but we don't permit hate speech.
Hate speech refers to content that promotes violence or hatred against individuals or groups based on certain attributes, such as:
race or ethnic origin
sexual orientation/gender identity
There is a fine line between what is and what is not considered to be hate speech. For instance, it is generally okay to criticize a nation-state
, but not okay to post malicious hateful comments about a group of people solely based on their ethnicity."
I don't think he was promoting hate, but he certainly was highly critical of black Americans and purposefully grouped them all together in a non-stop string of stereotypes that I imagine offends a lot of people, For you to defend this diatribe as a criticism of the BLM movement is disingenuous, He spent more time gnawing on that drumstick of fried chicken than he did talking about BLM.
Now we come to the "shoe on the other foot test" and I will extend you the courtesy of not assuming the answer. If we were to take a transcript of the video and give it a white man to act out and recite, would it be considered hate speech?
"Present company" excepted, I think there are may out there who would see this video as a validation of their own racist views because they are spoken by a black man.
I think for those reasons you got dinged, but I don't understand why it is still up on another part of the site.
