That's another brotha that you'll never see with anyone black around him
false again lmaoo



Tell you what, how about you create your own tech YouTube channel, build it to a level of high success, but make sure to have as many black people around you in the process.

If you don't wanna bother doing that, then your opinion has absolutely zero merit

What does someones "entire identity" being about race have to do with the question at hand? 150 simpletons propped this comment? Wild. Associating with you tribe doesn't equate to having your entire identity being your race.

And while it may not be our entire identity, everyones race is apart of their identity no matter how much of a bullsh1t explanation or excuses one may want to come up for dude. It's a valid question.

He never said anything outta pocket so lettem cook. I don't believe every successful black person is obligated to publicly throw the black community a bone. Just being the best at what you do without tapdancing, is payment enough.

We played with frisbees as kids but there was no sport around for us to actually get involved in with it... just had a blast on the block and at the beach like everyone else

Also he loves the NBA..

I think anyone just saying "im gonna only sell to or only deal with this one race" and you're trying to be a business person ... you are limiting your potential and profits immensely.

Its literally bonkers to create a product and only want it to be exclusive to say 15 year olds when you can have an entire state buying your product of all ages.

He already said he didn't grow up around blacks, never had black friends and is comfortable around whites.

I dod find it funny he has no problem talking or interviewing with famous blacks as a black token in technology, but that tells you how the white media wants it. They want tokens they can manipulate, not actual from the soil folks and they come like him, like lil uzi, and etc.
fu#k are you even talking about? It's amazing how dumb some people are. How is he a token in any way shape or form? He has put the work in since he was in middle school to get where he is at. No media companies have went influence over him. He is his own entity and one of the top tech guys on YouTube.
Calling him a "token" only diminishes his accomplishments

Media tries to use him and others as token for blacks in the it space.

Not that he is a token as to why he is famous or selected to be popular.

tf is "selected to be popular" ?

dude has been making tech videos since 2009, meaning he's been doing that for now 14 years

no one cared during his humble beginnings but now all of a sudden he's obligated to cater to a few insecure people and doesn't get the merit of his own success because he was "selected to be popular"?

I literally said he wasn't selected to be pushed, so what are you complaining about?
I have said in this thread he worked and earned his fame

In honesty, I never knew this because I don't look that deep into people. I check them for what they supply music, info and leave the personal sh1t separate.

If it offends you, don't support.

I met him twice, good dude, but he'll never hire a black person.

One of best friend, who's black, went to Stevens institute with him, he told me dude doesn't feel comfortable around black people at all, girlfriend, friends are all white.

A couple years ago when he expanded his studio to Kearny, I hit up my friend to try and get my cousin hired since his incredible with computers & tech, and was always up to date with them.

bro we didn't even get a word back from him SMH.

Now every time I see his videos, I'm hoping there is someone black in the background, but this dude no n1gga policy still strong lol

North Jersey is full of black nerdy dudes, NJIT in Newark is up the block from him , I know he can at least find one.

Not saying it’s right but he prolly got made fun of for being a nerd as a kid.
This is probably the real deal. Black women definitely sh1tted on him and called him corny, lame and nerdy. Got the T.O. story. He said screw it and said no n1ggas.

Real talk.. I've been in tech professionally for some 20yrs by now. And let me tell you every black person I've worked with has failed me/taken advantage in one way or another.

sh1t let me tell you this my job (been with them for almost 10yrs , basically employee #2) and we have had 3 other black hires.. all but 1 has stayed. One was for Head of People (head HR) and he didn't even last 2 weeks and he cam directly from our CTO from his previous job (CTO was hired earlier this year). My Boss is a trip tho(so out of touch so I have to check him some times but at heart he's a honest and cool guy). Asked him what happen to dude since he left so quick, he gave me the run down and left with "see i tried"
emoji
I couldn't even get mad, sh1t was soo random and funny but like I said I've known him for years so I knew what he meant.

Dunno what is is about our people and tech. I feel most think it's just an easy come up vs actually about that life. So when sh1t gets difficult sh1t goes south. Honestly I'm still questionable about this last hire but she has more chops then most ppl and she's cool(not attractive at all so that makes it easy as fu#k to work with her lol). We will see if she stays, honestly hope she does... we need some color around here it's been too long.
