This is a petition started by a woman who calls herself “Maya Lee.” It is a petition to stop the hate speech against Black women in YouTuber Tommy Sotomayor’s videos.

This is important, because these types of comments and opinions are NOT FACTS! They only bring my culture down and these things will cause people to have a low or negative opinion about blacks in general. It condones violence and hatred towards black women. He verbally abuses black women on and off the air. His show has been blocked before and he should be banned. We are all equal, no matter what.
