    Let the proud members of the "Master Race" build their own platform, lease their own servers, write their own code, and administer their own social media site. The "Master Race" must be up to it, alright? Now when can we do the same with Foxy News?

    YouTube announced plans on Wednesday to remove thousands of videos and channels that advocate for neo-Nazism, white supremacy and other bigoted ideologies in an attempt to clean up extremism and hate speech on its popular service.

    The new policy will ban “videos alleging that a group is superior in order to justify discrimination, segregation or exclusion,” the company said in a blog post. The prohibition will also cover videos denying that violent incidents, like the mass shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Connecticut, took place.

    The kind of content that will be prohibited under YouTube’s new hate speech policies includes videos that claim Jews secretly control the world, those that say women are intellectually inferior to men and therefore should be denied certain rights, or that suggest that the white race is superior to another race, a YouTube spokesman said.

    Channels that post some hateful content, but that do not violate YouTube’s rules with the majority of their videos, may receive strikes under YouTube’s three-strike enforcement system, but would not be immediately banned.

    The company also said that channels that “repeatedly brush up against our hate speech policies,” but don’t violate them outright, would be removed from YouTube’s advertising program, which allows channel owners to share in the advertising revenue their videos generate.

    Grandstanding by YouTube. It doesn't enforce its own rules evenly or properly.

    What would count as "evenly"? Treating racist and non-racist content, for example, the same way?

    Racism yes, non-racist no, but bare in mind racism is not exclusive to any one race

    There's racism from not just one race. How about they deal with it evenly across the board?

    Non- racist = nothing to deal with, it's a non-issue, it's inert

    That's a much-discussed issue we needn't get into here. But I'll agree that people of any race can say generalized, offensive, and objectionable things about another.

    Again, if you define "racism" in a systemic, institutionalized sense, it doesn't apply in the same way to all races. But if you're simply speaking about objectionable content based on race, are you sure they *don't* deal with it evenly across the board?

    The definition you cite--"the belief that one's own race is superior"--makes my point.

    Historically, white racism against black people has been derived from a notion that black people are somehow inferior.

    On the other hand, black people who fear and mistrust whites typically do so, not out of some notion of their own racial superiority, but because of the painful history of their people being treated as inferior.

    The situation, then, is asymmetrical, in the very terms that define "racism."

    Your point of view is bias

    His point of view is correct and is documented regularly in how the state and policing apparatus regularly treats minorities in criminal matters.

    No, one standard for everyone, his definition is completely based on bias, just read what was written

    He is applying the same standard you are missing the point that there are two issues in the reference. One is the previously referred definition that racism is basically a belief that one race is inherently superior to another, the other issue is one race not trusting another after generations of abuse in policing and other issues.

    It's not a belief that one race is inherently Superior than another, it is that one race believes that they are superior to the other, for example if you're black and you believe for some reason you're better than Asians that would constitute racism, to be fair you must hold all races to the same standard, with all that said rest assured there will still be bias and discrimination when it comes to YouTube cleaning up the videos they allow
