atural News) The left constantly screams about how they want to achieve ‘fairness’ and ‘equity,’ then they work double shifts to become the biggest discriminators on the planet.
And now YouTube has joined the fray, literally admitting content gatekeepers will be selectively censoring straight, white males so they can achieve more “diversity” on the platform.
This week, the video hosting platform announced it would be issuing a survey to all creators asking them their race, gender, and sexual orientation ahead of adjusting algorithms to artificially boost “diverse creator communities” — code for anti-white, anti-heterosexual discrimination.
“As our CEO, Susan Wojcicki, wrote in June, we’re examining how our policies and products are working for everyone — and specifically for the Black community — and working to close any gaps,” YouTube said in statement posted to the platform blog.
“Our goal is to make YouTube a place where creators can thrive in the long term, and we’ve done extensive work in this area, but we’ve heard concerns across various communities about their ability to grow their channels,” the statement said.
“We want to ensure our systems do not reflect unintentional bias and the existing process is currently limited because we only have information about content, not identifying information about the creators themselves,” it added.
How about this: Maybe some of the content being created by minorities is terrible…and that’s why it’s not more popular. Because there are a lot of straight, white men who create bad content too, by the way, which is why their channels don’t grow.
But that’s okay; it’s only when a creator of color or an LGBTQ creator’s subscriber base doesn’t grow it’s not ‘fair’ (and is that also true for creators living in nations of color?).
“To better evaluate a concern from a specific creator community (e.g., concerns that our monetization systems are working differently for different creators) we need to have data about which videos come from which communities,” the statement continued.
“Today, we can identify what a video is about but this does not take into account who the creator is or how they identify. For example, our systems can evaluate how videos about Black Lives Matters are performing against other content on YouTube regardless of the creator, but we’re currently not able to evaluate growth for Black beauty creators, LGBTQ+ talk show hosts, female vloggers or any other community,” it adds.
Again, why isn’t content the key here? After all, it is for everything else ‘media.’ If the content is generally viewed as bad by most people on social media, then it’s not going to ‘catch on.’ Artificially suppressing content (that might actually be thought of as pretty good by most who see it) based on skin color, gender or ‘preference’ sounds like YouTube is just begging for a lawsuit.

And the platform doesn’t seem to care, as the statement indicates.
“Today, we’re announcing a new effort to help us more proactively identify potential gaps in our systems that might impact a creator’s opportunity to reach their full potential. Starting in 2021, YouTube will ask creators on a voluntary basis to provide us with their gender, sexual orientation, race and ethnicity. We’ll then look closely at how content from different communities is treated in our search and discovery and monetization systems. We’ll also be looking for possible patterns of hate, harassment, and discrimination that may affect some communities more than others,” it says.
The platform then went on to say that censors have terminated “more than 54,000” YouTube channels just in the last quarter for “hate speech” — which, as we’ve seen on these Marxist-run platforms time and again is defined as conservative, pro-Trump speech.
The bottom line is this: If you’re okay with being censored just based on being a white guy who likes women, then by all means, continue to post your content to YouTube.
But if you don’t want to be censored based on anyfactor, maybe try a different video platform that doesn’t base its algorithms on identity politics — like Brighteon.com.
