YouTube allows commenters to freely use the N-word on video pages, and the YouTube video maker, even YouTube Partners like this blogger, are powerless to do anything about it, outside of removing and banning trolls. A job unto itself.
As I stated in this video…
I’ve had enough of this, and am asking YouTube to in some way block the use of the N-word, or at least give me the option of doing so.
Now, in a timely fashion, the producers of the TV show Glee on the NBC Television Network, have issued a PSA aimed at discouraging the use of the “R-word,” or “retarded” to describe mentally challenged people. And in that effort, Glee points to the N-word as one of the slurs that should not be used.
The PSA, which features Actress Jane Lynch, goes something like this:
It is not acceptable to call me a n—–,”a black man says. Then he’s followed by Latina woman who remarks, “It is not acceptable to call me a s—.” Then an Asian woman says a “ch—”, followed by a gay man who says “f–”. Finally a Jewish person says “k–.”
Here’s the video:
And they say “spread the word to end the word.”
Why can’t YouTube do that? I don’t care if some blacks use the N-word. It’s just plain wrong, and I don’t want it on my channel.
