Seeing Disturbing New Trends On YouTube: Black Republicans Co-Signing Racism

I spend some time watching NBA related videos on YouTube. I tend to avoid politics because YouTube to me is for entertainment, Recently I have been seeing strange "recommended for you" videos. Some guy named Brandon Tatum is making a right wing name for himself as a "black truth teller." These types of pawns have always been around. Even Nixon used Sammy Davis Jr. who I don't think was self-loathing. But then came another guy named Adventist Hermes. Real creepy looking fella. Then some others. All of them hitting Lebron James specifically.

Their line is some think tank claptrap about "black victimization mentality." All that amounts to is some neer do well wannabe white privileged self loathers trying to favor with the man but the question is why show it to me? My favorite player by a mile is LBJ. I think he is the GOAT, and if I had to guess will eventually be in politics himself. I am not the only person that believes so apparently because somebody is spending some dollars to discredit him. I am very left. I don't watch idiots and their proxy manhood devices (gun nuts) I don't watch (insert stereotypical middle aged bald screaming tough acting white guy here) I don't watch anything with a username of Eagle, Patriot, Rising or Freedom in the title.

Yet YouTube is shoving garbage in my face.

Why?

I want to complain because as much as I click not interested it keeps showing up. The word agenda comes to mind.

there are racists of all races, including against their own. Kinda like women who can be mysoginists, not just men.

is what is making YouTube ignore my preferences? That is the point of preferences. I lost a friend once because he was listening to some mouth breather named Mark Dice. I flat get angry when I am shown this trash.
