I recently experienced a very mysterious Removal of my Youtube Video, and am still in that experience now. I usually get an email or a notification about videos being taken down. This time was different, as a video I made about my reasons to align with CTFO (and not Kannaway) has disappeared. It’s quite embarrassing as I already wrote about my reasons over on Steemit. I sent an email out to my trusted list of business contacts. Sorta makes me look like I don’t have all my stuff together, when I’m the most together there is.
I can only take a wild guess that people from Kannaway are behind it.
A few years back when i went through a similar situation (the removal of my youTube video on Kannaway)
I wrote about it in, what hs become one of my most popular articles on TopNetworkersGroup’s blog, It’s all of it. Why YouTube Does Nothing About False Flagging, is a story about how people from Kannaway did not like my videos, and attacked my channel. In that process I came to realize that this was a very well funded company. The company Medical Marijuana, Inc created a subsidiary (kannaway) using Millions of dollars to fight little ole’ me.
They were probably paying people to monitor me and others from an office.
They won a momentary victory I’ll admit. Not because I was in violation of youTube’s terms of service, or because I was wrong in what I had to say. The removal of my Youtube Video on Kannaway back then, and the harassment I faced, only proved what I’ve been saying about Network Marketing for some time now. MLM has been invaded by Corporate America. They use their money for conspicuous deeds. Paying Google to silence any negative press about their company is not beyond the means of a well funded company. No average network marketing start up has the money to fight off anyone who may not be totally on board with their program.
That was a big reason I didn’t like the compensation plan that they put together. Like way too many companies, there was a high entry fee to get started. Then you had to be on autoship every single month. A major problem with autoships is you end up with products you don’t need stockpiled in a garage or a spare room. After reviewing the opportunity presented by another company, CTFO, I decided to sign up.
Both companies are offering CBD products but CTFO has no sign up fee to become an associate. You can try out the products at your convenience. Should you decide that you’d like to start building a customer base, you can do that and you’ll earn a decent monthly commission on those sales. If any of your customers also want to start earning a few extra dollars each month, they can start at any time as well. It’s a flexible business plan that actually helps you and I get back to what makes network marketing go.
Too much automation is going around in MLM today. Network Marketing is and always will be about relationships. I’ve met too many people in this industry who simply don’t Care about their relationships anymore. Everyone is ‘just a number’ to go through….
We have to be careful not to adopt corporate american ‘mentality’ …. but too many already have.
The negative influence of their money is being felt, and I’d be ready to bet they are responsible for the removal of my youtube video on CTFO vs Kannaway (want to try CBD products?). You’ll see the video was linked up to that article but it’s no longer available. These are all the reasons to build stronger networks, and look out for one another. It’s always us vs. the machines.
Twitter False Flags: The ‘improvements’ to Twitter only make it easier for Cyber bullies to false flag profiles they don’t like and get them punished! This really empowers bullies and does not help any of the challenges Twitter’s change in ‘community guidelines’ are supposed to fix. It doesn’t stop trolls, or cyberbullies, but instead makes it easier for them to silence any one who might ‘make a fool’ out of them. Bullying requires ‘numbers’. One person cannot ‘bully’ another. A Bully in the traditional sense is ‘bigger and stronger’ than the person they like to pick on. In today’s world, bullies are ‘groups’ of people online – usually groups of white people with mob mentality. They are very aggressive, angry and problematic – and make discussions nearly impossible. The only point of view that matters is ‘theirs’ and they use ‘numbers’ to get their points across. Or, to simply false flag people they don’t like, so there can be no (or little) opposition to their point of view.
These bullies just want to get their way. Twitter False Flags flaw allows bullying to happen…..
Yes, My twitter is currently suspended ….
My account was false flagged by a group of MLM Twitter Bully Trolls. Apparently I accidentally got into it with the wrong person, but that wasn’t my intent. I was scrolling the #MLM hashtag on twitter and came across a tweet. The tweet was asking for ‘stories’ from people who’ve been ‘duped’ by MLM companies.
I asked this person to elaborate on how they were scammed … and instead of simply elaborate, they decided to attack.
As you see, the first thing She did was Tag Three other people who all Hate MLM. (Setting me up for twitter false flags algorithms to strike)
Who are they and why did she tag them? Next thing she did was attempt to misdirect the conversation with semantics. She used the word ‘duped’ and I used the word ‘scammed’. So rather than, elaborate on how she was scam/duped, she wanted to make it about ‘the words’.
Apparently (as I found out after) that is this person’s entire mission. Them and their ‘gang of I hate MLM trolls’ are all just using twitter to harm other people using false flagging. She must have known that she would not be able to actually explain how she was scammed, or duped. So instead, she called for back up.
Naturally she worded it differently here after I asked her why she was tagging people I wasn’t talking to, instead of elaborating on how she was Scammed by MLM.
These ‘people of interest’ were people that I’ve never spoken to in my entire life. There was no reason to include them in our conversation other than to start a fight. Naturally she denied it, because that is the kinda person she is. That is what’s wrong with most people that hate MLM’s this much, to create entire twitter accounts Just to attack the industry.
This is one of several ways that twitter false flags are a flaw twitter needs to fix, but probably won’t. Just like with YouTube, they are the ‘king of their space’ and are making too much money to change their ways.
At this point, this Twitter bully knows her ‘plan’ is working. Start a fight, frustrate, tag friends and let them report all your responses. IF enough reports come in it automatically triggers a Suspension.
Twitter’s “robot” algorithm is thinking – “This many people can’t be reporting this tweet if it’s not in violation…. so it must be in violation”. It doesn’t see, “Oh, this account is taunting them, and has tagged others to go around false flagging other users”.
But naturally she never ‘put her experiences into 144 characters; nor did she add a link. Instead of saying ‘check out this link where I did elaborate’, she decided to play semantics, and tag her Bully Tribe. Twitter False Flags, do your thing!
In a nutshell, this twitter troll called me unintelligent for insulting them. Nevermind the fact they’ve already insulted me by dragging this out as far as it went. Of course, any insult to a person who is insulting you is not translated by twitters automated robot algorithms. The false flag flaw, that is all too common with these huge social network platforms, allows for bullies to silence anyone in a ‘minority’.
One person asking for someone to elaborate on how they were scammed, cannot out flag a person who’s got a troll army that can’t wait to silence anyone challenging their ‘position’. I’m the guy who wrote about the ‘valid criticism’ levied against the MLM industry in #ThisIsAPyramidScheme (John Oliver rips network marketing).
Manhun? Twitter’s algorithm isn’t ready to read this as an Insult, when it is. Meanwhile this person who’s been disrespectful (insulting) throughout continues to talk as if they are the actual victim – while being dishonest about not being asked Clear, straight questions.
In this tweet she reveals that she was, indeed ‘afraid’ that she’d have to actually Prove she was scammed, or duped. Rather than do that, she proactively tagged other people who would attack me She had no intention to prove she was scammed, and that is important
For people who think MLM’s are scams, or pyramid schemes, please mind the messenger. Yes, I called this person a few names, they called me a few names too. So what. None of that has anything to do with ‘business’. Business is about Transactions. It’s about delivering on promises, and doing what you say you’re going to do.
Calling someone a dumb bitch, for being rude and disrespectful is human nature.
This is why Dr. Boyce Watkins Facebook was banned, and other outspoken black people. The ‘experience of the minority’ is what I’m getting at here. Because even if I were a white man, I would have been suspended in this situation. I would be outnumbered, and that’s the key. Twitter false flags are possible, because of numbers. It’s possible to get people’s pages on platforms ‘we don’t own’ suspended, because the numbers trolls have are greater.
Naturally it’s okay for her ‘celebrity-worhip-i-hate-mlm-heror’ to insult people and call them Manhuns. She can insult people’s intelligence and dodge answering questions. But her argument isn’t weak. Only the person that calls her a name for employing those tactics. This is how people think, in our society right now. Especially those who often lend themselves to ‘mob mentality’.
This was a lie. She did not happily want to have a convo with me. Instead she wanted to tag other people to bully me, report my page, dodge my straight questions, and play ‘victim’. These are not decent people…..
Corporate America rewards you for your time. You can be a shitty person, but if you clock in for a certain amount of hours, you’ll be paid for that time. MLM does not reward you for your time. So shitty people have a tough time making money. They resort to bashing the industry.
That’s so much easier to do.
Plenty of shitty people who’ve failed at MLM and don’t want to admit the problem is them, not the industry are ready to show them support. A person like Elle, they’ll justify, is a good person just like they are. MLM has to be the bad guy, not their work ethic. It isn’t their sheer lack of respect for other people that stands in their way of making money. It’s gotta be something else!
Woah! Explains why he was booted. Completely uncalled for. I'm sorry, @ElleBeauBlog. He was just looking for a fight.
This isn’t ironic. A person who, apparently as I found out after I got suspended, created it’s account to start fights with people in MLM, is getting support from a person who accuses ‘others’ of wanting that. I wanted her to tell me how she was duped .. or scammed. She wanted to debate over whether or not she said the word scam; whether I was intelligent, or whether or not she was attempting to bully me by tagging several people I wasn’t talking to.
This Twitter false flags flaw is a problem, like so many sites. Facebook has it, YouTube has it It’ll only be fixed when the masses demand networks that aren’t moderated by snowflake algorithms. We can use alternative social networks, like Steemit although it’s clearly not ready to compete with Twitter. There are rumors of a steem-based twitter site on the horizon however. The question however, is will it be ‘mass appealing’ or not?
*Update from 9/10/17 – I wrote this last night and already you’ll see Twitter Trolls from her Army of Shitty people in the Comments below. They are all proving my entire point. This woman is a troll and has an army of trolls ready to falsely report anyone who disagrees with their Hate for MLM. None of them are rational or intelligent people. They most likely rejected any pleas from uplines to read books (as many had trouble Reading this blog post; and don’t realize I got suspended, hence the reason my tweets are missing) – It speaks volumes to proving everything I said about them. None of them are smart enough to realize they’re making my case for me. Always mind your messenger – People like this fail at everything they attempt to do in life. Most of them are barely qualified to hold down a job. That’s who mostly levies criticism against MLM. This problem with people, lends itself to the Twitter False Flags flaw; that you’ll find in many social media outlets. Mob Mentality can be used for good or evil. As always the choice is yours.
P.S. – for all you haters in My comment section; Please know I Own This platform. You cannot suspend me from here. You cannot silence what I have to say; Wait till I make a video about all of you 🙂
Again, this one thinks I “Left my tweets out” — because she isn’t intelligent enough to know My account was Suspended, over the false flagging her troll army conducted. You’ll see other morons with the same point of view in the comment section. Low intelligent people Come together – (hence how we elected who we elected in November 2016.)
I don't think he understands the meaning of the phrase "false flag". What an odd wee man.
That moron, thinks I don’t know the ‘meaning of false flags’ — Racist white people are quick to assume black people are not Educated. I’m well aware of the ‘traditional meaning’ of false flags (war) – where a nation like the USA will hit a country like Cuba while waiving Cuban flags; So that people ‘think’ the attack was from Cuba – when it was under the USA using a ‘false flag’ — and this is what also makes MLM difficult; People bring their racist bullshit into this way of doing business. So they constantly ‘doubt’ that black people know the meaning of words. False Flagging ‘also’ refers to how TROLLS use social media sites to FLAG(report) people who are NOT in violation (False Flagging) — and yet again this is more evidence of the ‘kinda people’ that agree with the “I hate MLM” crowd.
I particularly missed the bit where he assumes to know Elle's ethnicity from a stock image and claims she has a "whitevictimhood mentality"
The idea of “White Victimhood” has been around for some time. I’m not the only black man who notices it. Just the other day Tariq Nasheed was covering an interview with Tabitha Soren (below). She defamed the memory of Tupac in that interview, and acted as if she was a ‘victim’ of black sexual advances. White people are always doing this – always starting shit and playing victim. So I didn’t have to assume her ethnicity over stock photos. I can tell what she is from how she acts, and who comes around her. Only one race of people behave in that manner with Mob Mentality.
P.P.S — notice all these Trolls with Elle are Hiding Their Real Identity. They are not showing their faces as they bash MLM, and anyone not on ‘their side’. It speaks volumes to how right I am about them. They are so mad they’re Trolling my blog now. They’re frustrated they cannot stop me from talking. I’m exposing how little credibility they have. They’re now all on Elle’s page lying about the things they ‘would have done’. We all see what she ACTUALLY Did though. None of them are Credible sources – While they hide like cowards behind Anonymity.
When I first asked her to tell me how she was scammed; she should have Linked me to her Blog; As it was explained I had NO idea she already wrote one when I asked her the question. She ‘could’ have respectfully told me she had already expounded in a blog; and gave me a link which I would have read. She did not do that. Instead she got rude, and tagged others to start a fight. She never wanted to have a discussion. I did.
They’re not bullies; they are ‘Collaborators’ — We’ll see if Twitter acts once they see this updated account showing evidence of what I told them. I wasn’t the one in violation of community guidelines; This cyber-bully gang is though. They have the same mentality as Kek-army, and other white supremacists – the only ones who have time to Mob Mentality together on the internet.
These are not GOOD people. These are dishonest, cowards who hide their faces. They’ll say they are not bullies, but yet you can see they are a gang from reading their interactions. They’ve got facebook groups where they keep in touch and troll-bully others together. They gang up on people and pretend it is Others who are unprofessional. This is why none of them made money in MLM.
MLM does not reward shitty people with money like a job does.
** Final Appendage **
She posted this a few moments ago. Clearly another lie as I’ll prove in a second….
Twitter needs to fix this flaw in their platform; but again, probably won’t, as they don’t have to. People like this, with agendas, who are clearly dishonest with ill intentions, should not be allowed to ‘gang up’ on people by simply reporting tweets they don’t like, en-mass. It should require more than that, to trigger suspensions. (even on accounts without the blue check!) – Twitter False Flags are Possible because of Lazy Moderation.
Notice, she grabbed this tweet from My profile (the first tweet is not @ her), edited out her comment, then showed my reply (notice it now includes @ her) to “Elle’s” lies about me with a link to the ‘full context’ of the conversation. She felt Threatened by the truth; so her and her Troll army had to Twitter False Flag me – to “silence” me on that platform. Again, mind the messenger – Know that the people in the comments are all ‘proving my point’ – Trolls run in Groups, in Mobs, and all repeat themselves. They are like demons. Literally – you must be real careful, about who you listen to.
Gary Vee Cusses. Tony Robbins cusses. Let a black man Say a cuss word and he’s not a professional.
*Update 9/11/2017 :: Twitter False Flags Flaw Exposes MLM Bullies: Troll Leader calls off her Bullies; Tries to continue to pretend she’s Not who I said she is; but realizes this Blog totally proves it; So do the comments.
Because she is the troll Leader, Elle posted more tweets today.
The truth is our views may ‘not’ differ all that much but we never got a chance to discuss our views. Elle made no attempt to have a conversation with me. As demonstrated, the first thing she did was tag her troll army. These cyber bullies are not decent people, and are therefore not good sources to listen to when it comes to making Business decisions. They have exposed themselves by trying to suggest professionalism has to do with whether or not you Cuss out people who are attacking you. They want to make it about me calling Elle a Dumb Bitch, when by definition that’s what she is. She was rude (which is the definition of bitch) from the first Response she typed to me. And I’ll prove that she’s also Dumb. All this fuss she is making about how MLM’s are evil, how they are scamming others and what not, look at what she also wrote to one of her Troll Followers.
Too naive and trusting she calls it. As I stated, she’s dumb. She’s not a business woman who makes business (Logical) Decisions before joining companies. She is nothing more than a bully with a platform, and Twitter has given her power. So have other white people like her, who are also souless trolls that are looking for anyone to blame other than themselves. They are just, ‘too trusting and naive” ….. So she’s willing to admit she’s stupid ‘on her terms’ but not on mine I guess.
Her ‘calling off her troll army’ is just more evidence that she has the “Influence” to have directed a Troll army to Falsely Report My Tweets and get my account suspended; to which she gleefully bragged about – because she and her ilk, are shitty individuals.
(again notice all of them hide their faces…. cowards) If you follow people like this, you’re probably a coward with no real intelligence or an ability to read a business plan either. You’re just another loser, like these people are, and this is your “Losers Anonymous Support Group”. They’ll welcome you in with open arms, so long as you promise to go around Trolling Twitter like they do. They are not good people at all folks. The comments they left, the tweets they’ve put out in public all expose the truth.
It’s obvious, in plain sight, but unfortunately Twitter false flags flaws won’t catch it because algorithms aren’t written that way.
…. Scam and Dupe, actually Do mean the same thing. This, again is why I called her a Dumb Bitch. That’s what she is. Below is even More Evidence that @ElleBeauBlog is a Total Moron ….
Proving that @ElleBeauBlog is a dumb bitch; along with all her followers – scam and dupe mean the same thing
Thing about it is, that’s how all of this started. She was called a Dumb bitch, NOT because I am Unprofessional.
Profession has zero to do with anything when a person asks you ‘why do you say you were scammed?”. Her decision, again was to DENY that she said she had been Scammed (because she used the word Duped) — I know this is complicated for the Stupid people roaming our planet right now, but read it a few times if you need. SHE wanted to ARGUE with me over whether or not SCAM and DUPE mean the same thing.
Only a (uneducated) DUMB (rude) Bitch does that folks. As you can see in her tweets, she’s gleefully bragging like she knows more than the black guy! She swears the two words are not the same. Better not inform her of what ‘synonym’ means. Her Troll army will just blindly follow anyways, which is the sad part. That’s why so few people make money in MLM. Most people in the industry are idiots (I’m on record saying this for years now). I’ve written about how I’m “not a fan of people in MLM right now” years ago. It even had a part 2 – and again this post, mostly about how cowards team up on individuals to silence Resistance to their lies proves it.
*Update September 18, 2017 – In what I am sure WILL Be my “final appendage” to this post – The FUNNIEST thing ever happened. The same group of TROLLS who mass reported me and got me kicked off Twitter, are now complaining that Facebook Shut down one of Their own. Apparently Someone gave them a taste of their own medicine; and if you read their tweets – it proves everything I said about them here. These are foul creatures. It’s all good when they mass report others, but if it happens to one of THEM, then the system is flawed. LOL – Read about it all here @ Cyber Bullies Taste Karma After Running Me Off Twitter
The other day I was speaking about Azealia Banks on my Facebook …
I was reading more on that Azealia stuff this morning. As I stated the other day I really didn’t read what all she said before she got her twitter shut down. I was reading her responses To being suspended. She was saying she felt that white supremacy is what got her suspended from Twitter; that she had spoken badly about everyone; but when she started to talk badly about white folks, that’s when it was over for her. She has a point there.
You have to pick your battles in War.
While I get what she is saying, the words she chose are really what got her in trouble; and to a degree keep getting her in trouble; even if she does have a point. She mentioned that she’s very angry that her art keeps getting stolen by others; who then hide behind their fan base; and talk down to the people they stole their ideas from.
I started to think about the business world; Music, is def. part of the business world; and Business is cut throat. You think about the Wars between Apple and Microsoft which, started because Bill Gates stole ideas from Steve Jobs.
Stealing Ideas in business, is business.
When Nike signed athletes to market their shoes; Other shoe companies started doing the same thing too.
Real quick, here are my original thoughts on what happened to Azealia – via my FB page.
In other words, I really do understand where she is coming from.
It’s frustrating to be talented and black in America. It really is. You end up dealing with so much; not only from those who are not black; but also black people who are caught up in seeking the approval of Non-black racial groups.
We are up against a lot, as black men and women in society.
This is especially the case in business; because – Business is part of society.
So many aspects of society cannot help but spill into business; and this is again, why the Network Marketing industry emphasizes Personal growth and Self development.
We really do not work hard to protect the “Group known as Blacks” – as hard as we work to protect other Groups in this nation.
We go all out to fight for women, for gays, for transgenders, for immigrants, and it seems like new groups are emerging each day, with stories of oppression and unfair treatment. Our society hears their cries, and we tend to their wounds. Our society looks out for these groups – often using the struggle of African Americans known as the Civil Rights Movement, as a basis for their arguments. All while ignoring the cries within the black community.
I can see why she got frustrated; why she’s seemingly always frustrated – Then again, I’m not ready to say she was Right with all that she said.
What I do know is, we cannot do much about those who hate us; steal from us; talk down on us; but we can do a better job of loving one another.
To me, that’s the main objective we should be striving for.
While I’ve always been open to doing business with people regardless of their ethnic background; I’d be foolish to overlook the people who chose not to do business – because of mine.
This is however, what many black people in business are doing.
We are pretending that people really don’t care about our race – We just have to dress up. We just have to talk proper. We just have to stay away from talking about controversial subjects. We just have to ….. where does it end? When are we going to just be okay with being ourselves??
While I feel sorry for the likes of Azealia Banks – as she is just one of several black artists who feel their art is not appreciated on the same level as their white counterparts. Ultimately she and others like her need to come to the same realization I came to. It’s more important how we feel about each other, than how others feel about us.
What are YOUR thoughts on this latest Azealia Banks controversy? Is stealing just part of being in business? Can black people improve how black people view themselves and one another? Sound off in the comments below! Thanks, as always for stopping by!
The reason Youtube does literally nothing about False Flagging is simple.
They don’t have to.
False Flagging is a real issue for several people who use YouTube; The truth is anyone who’s channel Is within the community guidelines can have their videos and their account false flagged. This feature is the biggest flaw YouTube has. Yet, in spite of numerous blogs written about it, videos talking about it, false flagging continues to be a reality – nothing is being done.
It’s not like we have another alternative.
This is the entire problem.
When we look at alternatives to YouTube we come up with a list of websites that are often Worse than YouTube. Sites like Vimeo will let you share videos but, they better not contain any information on making money. If they do, those videos will be removed.
This is the problem with most YouTube Alternatives. They’re much more restrictive on what kinds of videos you can share; and seem to really want to control your freedom speech. Some will allow you some flexibility IF you pay them a monthly fee. This option however sucks – because who really wants to pay for a YouTube alternative??
Other alternatives includes sites like DailyMotion, Viddler, and several others which lack the traffic that YouTube has; but also have a ton of restrictions on what you can and cannot share. Here I was, thinking we lived in the land of the Free.
However the real issue here, has more to do with our Society; and Big Corporations; and Monopolies, than anything else. False Flagging happens because big corporations are too lazy to pay for quality customer service representatives.
When someone does not like a video; they can simply Report (or flag) that video. If they’re a big enough loser, they will assemble with other big losers and will report (flag) videos whether they are in violation or not.
Youtube’s customer service is entirely Robotic.
This allows for a few people to pocket a LOT of money and not worry about paying people to make sure these reports are Not False. So when the robot algorithm see’s a video has been flagged a certain amount of time, it automatically removes that video..
Sending appeals to YouTube is a waste of time; A computer reads your email; and always decides it made the right decision. To date, I only know of one person who was able to get their appeal read – She happened to be white.
I made a video exposing this scam for what it is; and several people got upset with me for it. While I am sure my race played no role in their decision to bash me and false flag my videos for sharing my Opinion on their opportunity; that sure is the vibe I felt.
You see, several others like Troy Dooley share ‘opinions’ on MLM Opportunities; those opinions are not always supportive of those opportunities. BUT the vast majority of comments You see on his videos, are pretty respectful. I am not saying that his white skin is the reason that his views are more accepted and tolerated. I just have not seen his channel being false flagged; while several others (other channels: and other social media sites too Dr. Boyce Watkins Banned From Facebook) are. This problem of false flagging extends beyond YouTube.
Recently a very controversial content creator on YouTube, by the name of Tommy Sotomayor also had His channel false flagged – once again, not saying his black skin is the reason that his Opinionated videos are not tolerated. But again you can see why YouTube needs to take action on this huge flaw.
However, as is the case with most things that mostly impact black people; Very little is ever done; This is especially true when it comes to BIG Corporations vs. The Little Guy.
You see, ever since Google bought YouTube; their customer service has worsened.
False Flagging has become more of a problem; it’s a HUGE issue on Google+ – a few complaints will trigger an account suspension and; there is no real appeals process. It’s clearly the same algorithm. Whether you’re actually in violation or not, does not matter to the algorithm. This is why Google+ will never compete with Facebook – at least, as long as Facebook continues to treat customer service with respect.
False Flagging is not a real issue on Facebook – they clearly have a real staff of real people; so that when the algorithms are triggered; a real human being looks into whether or not it’s real. When it’s real, action is taken. When it’s a false report – user accounts are restored.
This is why Facebook is Still the Champion of Social Media Sites.
For now though, YouTube has no competition. They have no reason to BE the best.
They are the ONLY ….
A real Youtube Alternative is sorely needed in the marketplace. A real site just like YouTube that allows people to upload anything they wish; so long as it’s not pornography or some kind of hate speech; and then hire REAL People to read the reports; This would go a long way to make YouTube do something about their huge Flaw; If people start Leaving YouTube for other sites, it will impact their dollar.
Sadly the ONLY way to get the attention of big Corporations, is to impact their bottom line.
You see, what YouTube really needs, is a threat for people who Flag Videos; that THEY will lose their account if YouTube finds that the video was NOT a violation of Community Guidelines. This would make people think twice before flagging a video, that they just don’t like – vs. flagging a video that is a real violation.
While all of us can agree this is what ‘should’ be done; It will not be until there is a real alternative in the marketplace. Till that day comes, False Flagging will be a reality – where freedom of speech is still not free; and possible perceived racism will have a place to live, and thrive; as Black people who create content are treated differently from non-blacks.
Apparently it’s ok for non-blacks to discuss financial freedom and income opportunities on YouTube; however if blacks are doing it – it may be a scam; at least that’s what YouTube told me in my email; I made a Review of WakeUpNow, which discussed my personal results so far with the opportunity. The video is no longer on YouTube; thanks to it being flase flagged – but here is a description of Why it was taken down.
As you can see, this Strike is the ‘second’ strike on my account. The first one came after I made a video where I was attempting to cry for help, from Bullying.
A gentleman who took up a real issue with my Kannaway Review, really wouldn’t stop commenting all over my videos. The guy was insulting my personal and professional experience in the industry. He was really and truly crossing the line. I felt, and still feel that he is the main guy Leading the charge against me; and when I noticed the negative energy coming from him, I made a video pointing out that THIS guy has NO experience whatsoever in MLM. I Found his google+ page, which showed he spent the majority of his life as a Contractor; they make really good money too – and his quality of work told me even more about him.
He clearly knew nothing about MLM and simply got into Kannaway to make a buck.
For some reason, he brought his apparent dislike for black people with him; because again, his comments were Over the Line and dripping with disrespect on a personal level; when He and I had never spoken at any point in time. So I made a video about the guy.
This was my First Strike.
The funniest part about this was, “I” was the one being bullied.
The Video was about the bullying that was happening TO me!
But, clearly in America when a black person complains that white people are bullying him or her; Those complaints are tuned out; and instead it is the white person who’s view is respected. This is why I am talking about ‘perceived racism‘.
Perhaps racism is not even a factor in why these things are happening – but it sure seems that way. As I look over my 15 year career in MLM; and the past 5 years of using YouTube to share information on how we can improve our lives – most of the black business owners I know have had this challenge to overcome; Most of the white business owners I know – have not.
I was on a different website not too long ago; and this is almost entirely unrelated – but ties directly in as well. A social network who I won’t even gratify with a free name-drop promotion; seemed to have this same kind of hypocritical approach to dealing with cyber bullies; I made a comment on someone’s page; They responded to my comment with insults; Then 3 of their friends chimed in with insults; Suddenly it was 1 vs 4; I defended myself. More people chimed in who were already friends of the 4; Suddenly it was 1 vs. 12.
Naturally, all 12 reported me as the bully – my account was terminated.
So I made a new account, came back at those 12 bullies; who all used Racial Slurs; I took Screen Shots; One of the Admins of the site got directly involved and Just when I thought “Thank God, some Human interaction and some Help” – she was just as racist as the rest were. She ignored my screen shots, even removed them from the site; because they contained offensive language. Did nothing about or two the people who USED the offensive language; and again, my New account was terminated.
This went on for some time; Till I got tired of it and moved on; but more and more admins joined in; and soon I was the talk of the network – turns out, all the admins were totally ok with racial slurs being used on black people. They had a problem with me Defending myself.
This experience with my Kannaway bullying video; really reminded me of my experience on that social network; apparently it’s ok to bully black people in America; It’s not okay for black people to defend themselves against bullies.
Combined with NO real youtube alternatives; Houston, we have a problem.
I am not sure if there is anything anyone can do to help MY situation at this time. I realize there are several people who don’t want to admit that racism is still around. Also, I understand some folks are probably upset, or disappointed that I even brought it up. Because that’s the society we live in today. Black people are never supposed to bring up racism; ever.
If I were white, for some odd reason I think I’d have a major issue with all of this – then again, chances are slim I’d experience any of these things; so I’d be less likely to believe they are happening to anyone else. This feeds into the lack of YouTube alternatives – because in general, the people who are most likely to create an alternative; Don’t need to.
If you’ll do a search of False Flagging on YouTube; you will find a handful of non-blacks in the feed; BUT you will notice the majority of videos; are made by other black users.
Perhaps someone NEEDED to bring up the race issue.
Maybe someone NEEDED to bring up the fact that we have NO real alternatives.
Perhaps this blog post will do nothing at all. But hey, doesn’t hurt to try.
I just want to bring attention to the problem; Point out the perceived racism; and provide enough reason, I hope for someone to create a real alternative.
Especially if we really and truly respect freedom of speech in this Country.
It’s unlikely false flagging will stop; until something serious is done about the people who engage in this big time loser practice.
*Update (5/19/16) Check out a RECENT EVENT involving false flagging:
Recently entertainer and music performer Azealia Banks was censored for making ‘inappropriate remarks’ on her Twitter account. In spite of there being several people who also make remarks that are not appropriate, her account got suspended. Why? Simple. The same algorithms used by YouTube are also used by sites like Twitter. If enough people flag you, your account is gone. Its a serious flaw that too many ‘large websites’ rely on. Meanwhile, we keep on allowing false flagging to continue.
