supporting BLM

hey, we didn’t feel right posting a playlist this week. we stand with the BLM movement, and in the spirit of giving you something to stream for whatever mood you’re in, this week we’re joining the others who have shared this video project. 100% of the advertisement revenue this video makes through AdSense will be donated to the associations that offer protester bail funds, help pay for family funerals, and advocacy.

For your most effective activism:

  • disable your ad blockers
  • don’t skip the ads (obviously)
  • keep the volume on (if you need quiet, just find a way that doesn’t mute youtube itself)
  • k-pop fans who are familiar with the art of not having repeat views get counted as spam have further advised watching 3–5 random videos in between streams of the video you want to boost (randomize the number and which videos are in your buffer too)

That said, if you don’t trust google to not fuck up this one video somehow, there are others making videos similarly purposed for BLM monetization

And of course, if you have the financial stability to do so, you can donate to bail funds (double check if the fund has recently posted that they’re fully funded and requesting that donations be directed elsewhere!), memorial funds (same thing to double check!), mental health resources for black people, or organizations such as Reclaim The Block that organize community and city council members to move money from police departments into other areas of the city’s budget that truly promote community health and safety.
