Logan Paul is one of the most successful and controversial YouTubers on the planet. He has been subject to countless discussions since the day his life changed for better.
Logan, along with Mike Majlak and Spencer Taylor, runs a podcast channel, apart from his main channel, on YouTube by the name of ‘Impaulsive’ where he recently uploaded an hour-long episode 189 titled ‘America Is Racist’ wherein they talked about the nationwide protests provoked by unjust murder of George Floyd and the situation that they believe traditional news outlets are unwilling and failing to make known and seen.
He shared a short clip from this episode on his twitter account in which he demonstrated the existence of “white privilege” and mocked those who abuse it or deny its existence.
Concerning the racism, Logan Paul said, “Listen Closely. One of my biggest learnings from all of this and I am embarrassed that it’s taken me 25 years to realize this: It is not enough to be ‘not racist.’ You have to be anti-racist.
Condemn those who feign superiority because of the color of their skin.
Hold friends accountable.
Hold your family accountable.
Hold yourself accountable.
And most importantly, we must hold our authorities accountable. Police officers, politicians, policymakers.“
While encouraging his fans to address their ‘white privilege’, he said, “If you’re white, if you look like me, use your privilege.”
“And for those, who do not think white privilege exists, you are f***ing blind, you are delusional and you are part of the problem,” He further added.
Logan then rationalized his belief that white privilege is real and it exists: “I can count on zero hands the amount of time that I have feared for my life at a routine traffic stop.
That has never happened.
Half of the reason I’m able to get away with some of my hooligan sh*t I do in my vlogs is that I am a white kid.
I am confident that I do not have to fear for my life should the cops show up.”
He urged the people of white privilege, influence, and power to utilize their resources in helping put an end to this deteriorating issue and said, “Acknowledge and weaponize your privilege. We must now work towards finding the solution.
And if you are an influencer or celebrity friend of mine, I hope you are using your platform to continue to spread the message of solidarity and unity.”
The clip Logan uploaded on Twitter has accumulated more than 8.5 million views and more than 310k likes which are continuously increasing.
Those who blindly hate him kept up with it but it seems to be the case that they’re outnumbered by the ones who appreciated his intention and showed immense praise and respect for what he said and for the fact that he got it across to the world.
