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:

 Today, we are announcing a $ 100 million multi-annual fund dedicated to expanding and developing the voices of black creators and artists and their stories.

And an example of the type of content that we would like to upload on the platform will be presented this Saturday, June 13th.
We will organize the broadcast of a live fundraising event produced by YouTube Originals (YTO), ‘Bear Witness, take action’. YTO will bring together creators, artists, influential public figures and prominent active voices for roundtable discussions and musical presentations, with donations that benefit the Equal Justice Initiative.

During the month of June, our Spotlight channel will highlight issues of racial justice, including the latest perspectives of the black community on YouTube, as well as historical content, educational videos and protest coverage. 
This content features incredibly important stories about the centuries-old struggle for equity. ”

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.
