Throughout history, one of the major tools in the spread of white supremacist ideology was, is and has always will be deception.
In the digital age this is not any different.
Over the course of the last month, several YouTube videos which perpetuate dangerous racist stereotypes about black people quickly became popular all over the internet, all published by proclaimed sociologist “Joey Salads”.
His latest video was of a group of black men supposedly destroying a Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump supporter’s car. He ends the video claiming that black people are violent and destructive which quickly went viral after being picked up by right wing media, including Drudge, Daily Mail and Fox News, who invited Joey Salads to their studios. The video received over 1 million times in 24 hours.

After being exposed Joey Salads, whose real name is Joey Saladino makes a second video where he is interviewed by H3H3 productions, he tries to provide an explanation of what occurred and why he claims he is the victim.
He eventually admits to more of his “in-the-hood” videos being fake:

Black Lives Matter vs All Lives Matter, which received over 40 million views on Facebook.
Despite admitting to being a racist fraud, Joey Salads has not removed these YouTube videos. The videos have been just been set to private, and his bait car experiment video still remains active on Facebook and YouTube.
To make matters worse, it appears that profits from his racism are still being made. According to the website Social Blade, Salads’ annual salary from his YouTube page is estimated to be anywhere from $42,500 – $679,800 a year.
