Racism Alive And Well On YouTube

Friday I had done a brief posting on my satire/news blog Bitchy Old Queen in regards to this video.


It again proves, that if you look and delve into the lower bowels of YouTube you can find things that will just make you sit there and shake your head in disbelief.


If you click through the video when it's finished, you can FLAG IT as I have done for it's "Hate Message".


Just goes to show you don't have to stand out in a remote field anymore to burn a cross.


WARNING - VIDEO IMPLIES THAT BLACKS AND WHITES SHOULD NOT MARRY PER HATE GROUP.


VIEWER DISCRETION IS ADVISED.


RATED I - FOR IDIOTS !

It might be a better idea to replace the actual video embed with a link to it, and preface that with a warning and brief description about the content, perhaps noting what you found particularly objectionable.

That helps ensure that the reader knows what the video may contain and allows them to know ahead of time whether they want to watch it now or later (if at all), and helps keep the video from spreading when it contains questionable content.

What you are asking me to do is hide the video which is the opposite purpose for presenting it and showing what can be found on YouTube.


This is what many do when confronted with the ugliness which is still prevelant in our "enlightened" society.


Put it in a closet and hope it goes away.


The video is not graphic, but by the very words contained on screen and which are read, show the still unbeliveable intolerance that permeates the United States.


No, sorry the video stays as is or I will delete the entire posting.


For me to do otherwise goes against everything I stand for as a journalist.


Your call.


Actually the call should be left to our readers as to whether they wish to see what can be found on YouTube and other video sites without much effort other than doing a word search.


Out of respect and the sensibilities of others I will not write what the word was.


Readers can come to their own conclusion.

instead of giving an outlet to the very thing you want to expose.  A link -- or at least a warning with a description of what it contains -- is to ensure that the reader gets the choice, instead of having to click on and watch the video w/o knowing what to expect.

If you want to keep the video, at least provide an excerpt or description of content that gives the reader and potential viewer an idea of what to expect, so that if they are in a "not safe for work" situation or somewhere with kids, they won't risk exposing something that could cause problems.

It's the responsibility of a responsible journalist not to waylay their readership.

I'm not calling for censorship; I'm calling for "fair warning" and discretion, without denying access.

There's more than one option. Your call.

One more thing, did you watch the video ?


If you had I really don't think we'd be doing this dog chasing tail routine.


I won't be making any further comments on this matter.


Thank you for your advice and suggestion.


And in the future don't presume to lecture me about being a journalist, I was doing radio reporting and stringing for networks before the I-net was a twinkle in Al Gore's eye.
