Google lifts restrictions on YouTube from showing Swaziland’s reed dance which features bare-breasted women
Google has actually raised limitations on YouTube from revealing Swaziland’s popular reed dance which features bare-breasted females.
According to Mr Dlamini, he had gotten in touch with Google to claim that he was merely reflecting the cultural values of his neighborhood yet the business claimed that the material broke the system’s standards.
Its YouTube channel which launched in 2016 had been adding 3,000-4,000 new subscribers every month until the platform started to flag its content as inappropriate. It also put a label on the channel advising advertisers that its content was “not suitable for most advertisers”.
According to Mr Dlamini, he had contacted Google to say that he was simply reflecting the cultural values of his community but the company said that the content violated the platform’s standards. He then organised a series of protests, working with more than 200 cultural groupings from Swaziland. It included at least a dozen women who posed bare-breasted with placards that read “Google are racist” and “my breasts are not inappropriate”.
