In light of the increasing anti-Asian violence all over the United States, YouTube employees requested the removal of YG's 2014 track 'Meek The Flockers', which targets Chinese people for robbery

“find a Chinese neighborhood, cause they don’t believe in bank accounts," YG raps

Despite their employees' protest, YouTube had decided to keep the video up, citing the platform’s exception for “educational, documentary, scientific, and artistic” content.

“While EDSA is not a free pass for any content, there are likely thousands of music videos that would otherwise violate policies... were it not for these sorts of EDSA exceptions,” the YouTube brass wrote in an open letter to employees. “Removing this video would have far-reaching implications for other musical content containing similarly violent or offensive lyrics, in genres ranging from rap to rock.”

No comment from YG, who recently explained that "being real" never got him anywhere.

Do the YouTube employees have a point about "Meek The Flockers?"
