Black Youtubers are strugglingBlack creator's it seems are getting "shut down" before they have even begun to use YouTube as a platform for expression and collaborations.
The reason Black YouTuber's are failing
Some favorited black YouTubers think the real reason black YouTubers are failing is that there is not enough financial support from the community of black people who are actually engaging in the discussion on the platform and the people who are daily viewers and fans of these youtube channels.
Would these YouTubers be failing if their content were presented differently, and convey the same message?
Where is the platform for these Black YouTubers?
Currently, there is no platform where community thinkers and even researchers can sit and discuss issues in the Black Populations of the United States.
No "real news" found on Cable TV or the largest streaming website on the planet (YouTube) that fulfills those needs.
There is a lot of non-black people who re-read and quote FBI stats and never speak about solutions while grabbing another dehumanizing quote written about African Americans.
The African Americans decided to use social media as a form of expression and to talk about how they feel like any other group in America and around the world.
Americans of all Races know what the problems are
No matter what race or ethnic group you fit in, most adults know what the issues are when they are dealing with them every day. The things that are said by man fans of those channels are, "Where are the solutions " "Why isn't anyone speaking about how to fix things" "complaining about the issues doesn't fix sh!t" "Why don't celebrities step in and do something."
After some of the above quotes are said, there will always be a voice that echoes "Celebs care about you just as much as America cares about your black @ss."
The overall feeling is of hopelessness, frustration and being separated as if you are not an American, despite your grandfathers Military Service and the graves of your ancestors buried on the land since the 1700's.
YouTube's current crisis with advertisers leaving the platform and not putting their money into what makes Google operate has had an enormous impact on many YouTubers, and the hardest hit is not the biggest YouTubers, but the smaller channels and channels which serve content that targets Black Americans.
These channels are the least likely to be financially supported by ads, sponsors, and the fans.
