I realized something rather important a moment ago!

I just realized something. I was reading a Cracked article, and read this:
"This is why their most important cultural voices came to the defense of JonTron and PewDiePie after their respective racism controversies. Racism is bad, they say, but censorship is worse. I realize that to readers over a certain age, those are both nonsense names. If so, you should know that among teenagers, YouTube personalities matter much, much more than TV or movie stars. The top five most famous celebrities among people age 13-18 are all YouTube hosts. PewDiePie -- the most famous one who was recently accused of making anti-Jew jokes -- has videos that got more viewers than the Seinfeld finale. The world has changed."
And it's true. SO what can we do? What can ANY of us do? I suddenly realized, I actually AM helping in this fight, and on the front lines!
I HAVE a youtube channel. I only have 87 thousand subscribers, but I AM on Youtube, and I HAVE a presence (a small one :), and I AM making videos where I talk about equality and why it is right; why racism and sexism is wrong; I talk about WHY it's bad to treat people as less than human. I AM on the front lines and fighting the good fight!
I AM more than just Scott (what SNL- THANK YOU SCOTT for the joke :)... I am FIGHTING! :)
