Administrative Matters: 'Chauncey DeVega' and 'We Are Respectable Negroes' Now Have a Youtube Channel

In response to the requests of the kind friends and supporters of We Are Respectable Negroes (WARN), as well my other online work, I have finally created a Youtube channel.

The channel is divided up into several categories that cover essential documentaries and other resources related to the topics we discuss here on WARN, a section for the fun "ghetto nerds" materials, a limited sample of my media appearances, and Season 3 of the podcast (with a few of the most popular episodes from Season 1 and 2) now known as The Chauncey DeVega show.

The Youtube channel can be found here.

[And speaking of The Chauncey DeVega Show, tomorrow's episode will feature the first of a two part conversation about the killing of Michael Brown, the protests, and the broader dynamics of Ferguson].

The Youtube channel is a nice repository for videos related to the themes discussed here on WARN and a value added for those folks who want to mine that resource.

Now, can you do a brother a favor?

Please like, subscribe to, and share the channel. One of the challenges of developing social media content is that popularity is confused with value and merit. averages several thousand page views a day. If the readers and friends of the site also subscribe to the Youtube channel we should be able to get those numbers up pretty quickly.

Likewise, if you do not follow me on Twitter at @chaunceydevegaplease do so. Followers translate into opportunities to grow our project because of perceived value.

If you have any suggestions for videos or other materials that you would like to see on the Youtube channel please leave a comment below.

Likewise, if there are other types/categories of videos that you would like to see added to the Youtube channel for Chauncey DeVega and We Are Respectable Negroes, please make that suggestion too.

I subscribed, but please turn off the autoplaying audio. It is a bit intrusive.

that is the genius of Youtube. there is no option to do so. apparently, it only does that for new subscribers. once you are subscribed it should stop. i find it annoying too.

a few hours over the weekend here and there. hopefully folks will add some suggestions for the documentary playlist so we can beef up that resource.

Frank said...

Thanks. I gather that being annoying is the hot new trend in marketing . . . .

I look forward to keeping up with your work there.

Annoying is the in thing these days.

If you have any suggestions for resources to add by all means comment here or email. How have you been doing?

Frank said...

I will keep that in mind.

Same old same old in these parts. I've just been blogging along like a tumblin' tumbleweed.

That should be a t-shirt. Got to get that hustle on Mr. Frank!
