Verbal and Emotional Abuse of Black women on YouTube is rampant. Not too long ago, there was a self-proclaimed Black man who called himself “Srgtwilliepete,” all he did was constantly bash Black women. He put out multiple videos daily describing everything that was wrong with Black women. He even went so far in one video to make the comment that Black women who wore weaves looked like “monkies with wigs on.” He was eventually banned from YouTube and began posting on gen X. It seems like ever since he began posting, more and more anti-black woman YouTube videos have poured onto the internet.
Why Do YouTube Videos Matter:
– YouTube is the third most used website on the internet, after Google.
– When I first encountered these videos on YOUTUBE, I wasn’t looking for videos trashing Black women, I accidentally came across the videos when I was researching for a required paper for college. This means anyone can come across these videos and for people who have little to no interaction with Black women, to hear such negative comments about Black women (coming mostly from Black men on youtube) they may really believe Black women behave the way they’re described in the aforementioned videos.
Please Help me put these videos on Blast so that we can start addressing the misinformation and stereotypes associated with Black Women!
