First: You find a house and scope it out
Find a Chinese neighborhood

This is so fucking ugly.
fuck him.
I don't know who the fuck YG is but fuck him. I hope he gets covid, doesn't die and has erectile dysfunction for the rest of his shitty life.
Smh. Disgusting
These websites, especially Youtube, have allowed themselves to become havens and introductory points for qanon and alt right pseudo-intellectuals whose whole job is to traffic in racist, misogynist, fascist thinking. I can still go on nearly all these platforms and hear Stefan Molyneux say black people have smaller brains than white people, or hear Ben Shapiro insist on why we should keep calling covid the Chinese Virus. You can't watch a video about anything even slightly, vaguely political without being recommended a "how to become a fascist douche 101" video from The1488King or some shit. These platforms refuse to get rid of these people, despite these folks inspiring and encouraging hate movements, harassment of individuals and even racially motivated mass shootings.

But they were suddenly really moved to censor a rap song from 7 years ago with anti-asian lyrics. Make it make sense.
Have you seen the QAnon HBO doc? It was very eye opening, and one of the questions asked to the creator of the doc on a Reddit AMA was how to solve these problems, and truly I think its these algorithms big social media tech uses to deliver content to people.

Psychologically speaking, believing in a conspiracy theory or joining a cult doesn't happen overnight. It happens with the process of conditioning the mind.
Yup. When you have this hateful rhetoric just fed to you slowly and constantly through social media, it reinforces that line of thinking to the point where it becomes habit and innate, unconscious behavior (like how you don’t actively think about things when you’re driving).

i remember he mentioned how utterly easy it is to get linked to ONE white supremacist video and within seconds, that's all the algorithm is recommending to you and all you start seeing.
That's disgusting.
Trash. What's wrong with people.
Jesus fucking Christ. That would've been horrible pre pandemic, now their decision seems malicious. I always click what gets censored in the name of racial sensitivity and what doesn't. Evil all around.
What the hell. I’ve always been bothered by anti-Asian rap lyrics, do better please!!!
And why don't they believe in bank accounts? Talk about punching down. Where's Wu Tang when you need them?
Can people just NOT be assholes?

Why is it so fucking hard not to tear down other people (and put them in danger) for who/what they are? It doesn't make you look cool or badass... it shows you for the fucking racist/homophobic/transphobic/xenophobic/misogynist/bigot (and many more) pos you are.
Who put it back up I'm so confused.
It's not that hard to be anti Asian or bite your tongue off when you still want to be so. Tick rock tongue, YG.
Oomyyygaaawwd!!!!!!!! 😲😲😲😳😳😳😳😳😳😳😳😳
