YouTube announces 100 million funds for black content creators
YouTube announces 100 million funds, which will be earmarked for black content creators. The measure comes after the various conflicts that take place in several cities in the United States, after the death of George Floyd, in Minneapolis.
The announcement was made by Susan Wojcicki, executive director of the platform, who took the opportunity to highlight the company’s efforts to combat and verify facts about the new coronavirus.
In addition, Wojcicki announced that the video transmission website will start, this week, a series of programs that aims to expand “the voices of black creators”. In a blog post, Susan highlighted:
This news comes after YouTube announced the $ 1 million donation to the Center for Police Equity, about a week ago. Alphabet – the company that owns Google and its subsidiaries – will also invest in other initiatives geared towards racial justice, with a $ 12 million grant to various companies of the kind.
We also highlight that, in a recent decision, YouTube banned the creators of the Xbox Mil Grau channel and canceled the partnership with those responsible for the channel after several complaints from users regarding racist content that was published by them on various platforms.
