Robots are racist now

Online Games Bay

At least according to youtuber CoryxKenshin, who started a storm about being victim of racism or favouritism within youtube. Yes, boys and girls, he is convinced that robots are out to get him. I think we should re-watch Terminator movies, just in case...

Robots are racist now

Youtuber CoryxKenshin raised alarm over his mistreatment from the platform over The Mortuary Assistant video. While the game contains scenes related to self-harm and suicide youtube have age-restricted access to CoryxKenshin’s video. He then checked that JackSepticEye’s and Markiplier’s videos, both containing the same scenes were not age-restricted, so he reached the only logical explanation (for him) - it’s either racism (because he is Black) or it’s favouritism. Just footnote: as far as I know Markiplier is of Asian descent or mixed race, which makes the first argument invalid.

Since CoryxKenshin uploaded his video complaining about his mistreatment both videos (on JackSepticEye’s and Markiplier’s channels) were also age-restricted, which... actually invalidates the second argument. Then there was, as usual on youtube, some weird stuff going on when some of those videos were cleared, then again age-restricted, cleared, etc. In his video CoryxKenshin raised some valid points about youtube being a total mess with no clear rules, but to be honest everyone already knew that (everyone, who ever used that platform). But for him behind it was "either racism, favouritism or mixture of both" and he raised that matter with his personal youtube representative.

Umm... What?! You have your own youtube rep, someone you can complain to, someone to discuss your problems with and you think favouritism is a bad thing? I don’t wanna rain on your parade mate, but 99% of youtubers do not have their own yuoutube reps, so if they get hit by something it sticks and they have no one to turn to. Of course they can send angry letters that will be answered by AI and that is it! Then I checked who CoryxKenshin is and... he has 14 million subscribers and on a good month gets 30 million views. Wow man, how do you cope with that racist youtube, who doesn’t let you grow? It must be hell to be victimized so much that within 1 year your channel grew by 50%...

Youtube, just like any other google product, is a frickin mess, everyone knows that who ever used them, but playing victim (and especially race card) is really pathetic from someone who is among those privileged on the platform. Just like any company that is too big for its own good youtube does stupid stuff, again everyone knows that, with each year it gets worse, everyone knows that, with each year more on the platform is done by AI, which never understands such things as context, everyone knows that. So what is your point dear CoryxKenshin?

AI is out to get you because you are Black? Ok, let’s assume that this is actually true. So how did you grew your channel so fast? How do they still let you grow so fast? You have huge number of subscribers and views, you must be (I assume) making good money on youtube, so... Are they so inept in their racism or they just too lazy to act on it? And as for favouritism... Really? That is your best shot? You are one of the small group of privileged people on the platform, so I guess it would be fair that your complain should be not about being victim, but about not being privileged enough.

You wanna be treated like Markiplier and JackSepticEye? I’m pretty sure you already are, but since they have more subscribers, they are more important for youtube, which, as you might have heard, is a business. Any small youtuber could say that they wanna be treated just like you are right now, but without millions of subscribers they will never even be heard by youtube, so really, I wouldn’t go down that road if I were you.

Let’s say that youtube will remove your privileges, you will have no rep and everyone will be given the same chance to be heard by youtube with their complain. Then when your video will be age-restricted you will file your complain and... wait in a line for months and months until it will be reviewed by youtube employee.

You, dear CoryxKenshin, are part of huge and inept platform that youtube is, there are incompetent people working there (like in any other company), there is some buggy software involved (like in any other company), there are some issues with the direction the whole thing moves (like in any other company), so just take under consideration that the world is not out to get you, it’s just how the world works.

And the Evil Corporation of the Year Award goes to...

What always fascinated me in the books, movies or video games was the concept of an evil corporation. They always had some nefarious, although logical, plans, they were powerful, they were crushing people just for the fun of it. They were always over-the-top, always taking part in some evil plans, and always had some twisted individual in charge of them. But in real life...

Nothing to see here, just one huge idiot

Youtuber jtisallbusiness claims that he has spent 100,000 USD on building his powerful character of Barbarian in Diablo Immortal. And now he has a problem... Sorry mate, we all have problem, because of you.

It’s a commentator-eat-commentator world out there

There is a special kind of youtubers, a bottom-feeding kind, which craves the drama and will do anything just to score some pathetic points and stir some more drama. Yes, I’m talking about "commentator channels", so it’s pitchforks time!

Hello darkness, my old friend

One of my favourite quotes from Mystery Science Theater 3000 is "he came, he changed nobody’s life and then he left", which pretty much describes what happened to Cyberpunk 2077. Again.

RIP Google Stadia

It may come as complete shock to you, but Google, a company that started and buried dozens of new projects in last 20 years, is about to do it again. This time it will be their half-hearted venture into cloud gaming field, Google Stadia, which looks more and more like ghost ship.
