I applied to YouTube’s #YouTubeBlack contest, the New York version of its NextUp contest to help YouTube Creators grow their channels, with a focus on supporting Black and Latino viewers and creators. This was after my initial reaction knowing that I am not keen on programs that box people into racial categories by default, even in efforts to help, and knowing that YouTube is not keen on supporting my channel or responding to it after my concerns about censorship. However, after some feedback, I thought it might be useful to send an application in anyway and speak my truth!
