Second Action and how racists are violating Youtube Terms of Use

Here's a second action list. The top ten results are all found on the first page of results doing a simple keyword search on "Chinese" and "rap". They're the most dangerous, because any little kid could be doing a search for real rap and find this racist crap instead.

Action Guide:

  • Sign up for a Youtube account (takes 30 seconds) or sign into your account
  • Come back to this page
  • Right-click on each link below. Open each one in a new window. Flag it for hate speech.
  • Optional: rate it one star.
  • Optional: leave a comment "Racist. Flagged for hate speech. TAKE YOUR VIDEO DOWN"
  • Optional (but highly effective): click on their user page and leave the same comment aimed directly at the uploader. They'll take this more personally.
  • Youtube caps your comments at 5, then a freeze of several minutes goes into effect, but your ratings and Hate Speech flaggings don't get capped.

Ok, people. Let me get this straight. I AM NOT RACIST. Period. This video is all in good fun, and it's not like I believe in what it says. MY GOD, TAKE A FRIGGIN' JOKE! C'mon people! If someone makes a song making fun of white people, it's ok because we've evidently treated everyone else SOOOOOOO badly! Seriously, if you have to get all asian malcom x over a stupid song, you have problems.

Jagsalin (earlier today, posted in video description)
I did not make this song. I was just lip-syncing to it. I do not mean the things I say. This is Brandon DiCamillo's Rap. Not mine. I am NOT a racist.

Rascist? Are you retarded? I bet you are one of those white "former" nazis who now preaches about how everything is rascist to make himself look better.
There is nothing rascist in this video, and you can even see our little asian friend run around behind him at the beginning. He didnt get pissed off, and if anyone should be it would be him and not some white american ass if it had been "rascist".
And btw this is a cover of Brandon DiCamillo's (Jackass) rap.

Unfortunately there could be hundreds more of these videos. Keep finding and flagging them using other keyword searches ("CKY" and "Chinese" for example). We're also going to put together a form letter and email soon, directly to Youtube, to try and get faster action on removing as many of these videos as possible.

Anyone of any race who hates racism, please do what you can to link and promote this site!

From Youtube's Code of Conduct page:

  • There is zero tolerance for predatory behavior, stalking, threats, harassment, invading privacy, or the revealing of other members' personal information. Anyone caught doing these things may be permanently banned from YouTube.

Please take these rules seriously and take them to heart. Don't try to look for loopholes or try to lawyer your way around them—just understand them and try to respect the spirit in which they were created. Violations of the Terms of Use may result in a warning notification or may result in termination of your account and deletion of all your videos. We decide whether we believe your violation of our Terms of Use should result in termination of your account.

Uploaders of Chinese Freestyle Rap videos are in violation of Youtube Terms of Use. Take your videos down! If you love them so much, there's a website made especially for you called WWW dot STORMFRONT dot ORG. Chuckle over them all you want over there, racists!

While I admire the intentions of this blog, and while I certainly hold the same sort of sentiment; in the end, this all seems paradoxically unproductive. I mean(articulate) people have mentioned this before, but I feel like I should repeat it.

If the same bunch of people start flooding videos with "LOL U R SO RACIST" comments; it unfortunately adds to the "comic novelty" of the video/song.

Hell, I'm certainly not an advocate of "let the dumb people be dumb;" but this really isn't much better.

Got a better suggestion? Seriously.

We already got three of these videos taken down already. By Monday, when more Youtube employees are in, we hope to have a lot more.
