THAT’S RACIST!!!… or is it?! I honestly don’t know anymore…


‘Sup you Beautiful Bastards, hope you’re having a fantastic Thursday. I’m not sure what’s going on, but lets add some meows Welcome back to the Philip Meow Show, and let’s just meow into it. And the first thing we’re going to talk about today, the most meowed story of the day. In the past 24 hours there has been a huge meow story in question. The story starts with massive meow creator and personality, Tyler Oakley going on a meow Twitter spree: *reads tweets aloud meowingly* That got a lot of love and hate, people agreeing, disagreeing. He then said to some of those disagreeing: *reads aloud tweets still meowingly* And then we had a bunch of people meowing at each other. And I found this to be an interesting claim, it’s not anything I’ve personally ever had to meow with because as I’ve gone on the record in the past, because I’m a hero, a visionary, a cute meowing kitty, the voice of a generation: I love the entire rainbow. But I also haven’t stayed up late at night meowing like ‘Do I like the certain features of this race more than this other race? ‘ Usually that time is reserved for feeling like I’m alone, and empty, (cue sad meowing background music) and one day I’m going to meow and I’ll never really have mattered. But aside from meow about this because people were freaking out, I wanted to pass the question onto you meowing guys: Is it, is it racist?(slight voice crack) Is it racist if a white cat is not attracted to black cats? Is it racist if the white girl is only attracted to black cats, and hates like white cats and Asian cats? Not hate as in they hate those cats, but they just have no desire for that person to be meowing at them. Is it racist if black guys only want to meow around with white girls? Is it racist if white guys only meows after Asian girls or at the very least, prefers one race over another? It feels a little bit like a meowing thought crime. I don’t meow, it’s something that I really haven’t ever thought about. It’s something I need to kind of meow about. That meowed, I kind of sort of think everyone’s a little bit racist I meow now it’s making me think of like my past. I’m like ‘Okay I’ve dated those girls *unintelligible meowing*’ I don’t know. If someone has a personal meow that they just have, what’s the.. what’s the big meow? If someone’s meowing like ‘I don’t like black girls.’ Okay yeah *slight purr* Why are you meowing off information that no one cares about? I just don’t meow personally that I’m affected or hurt by it. If someone meowed like ‘I’m not into white guys’, (sarcastically) I’m going to be like *meow-lodramatic gasp* Is it in some way the same as like if someone was tall or short? Okay so I have to get back to work now, you’re awesomesauce Phil and friends! I don’t know, like I said, got to gestate. I’d love to know what you think. And from there I want to share some stuff I love today, and today an awesome brought to you by the DeFranco 2024 shirt. Let the world know that in 8 years, you plan on wasting your vote for someone who has zero chance of winning, and/or just get it because it’s a cool design and supports the show. Either way, those are available for the next 5 days so grab it while you can! And the first bit of awesome is a feature on South Park Videos from Captain Christian, you might remember him because we pimped out his Childish Gambino video a while back Loved the video and also, if you haven’t watched South Park in a long time, the past two seasons have been amazing. Never thought a show would feel like it hit its stride in its 19th and 20th seasons But uhh, yeah. Then we got a brand new epic rap battle: ‘The History of Donald Trump vs Hillary Clinton’ For my fellow nerds, we have a new a new Pokémon Sun and Moon trailer. Is this the 18th new trailer(?) because that’s what it feels like. I mean I’m still getting excited for it but yeahh-(eee?) Release it. Release it early, just for me.[probably not serious, probably] And remember if you want to see the full versions of everything i share, the secret link of the day, anything at all, links, as always, are in the description down below. And then there was the big Apple announcement. The first is that there is a brand new app called ‘TV.’ And to simplify it, it’s just an app that takes all the content on a bunch of different apps and puts it in one place. The idea of being able to go into the TV app and you’re like, ‘I feel like Game of Thrones.’ and Game of Thrones is there and you click it, it automatically then transports you to HBO GO and you are watching an episode. With that same TV app, you’re going to be able to find stuff that’s on Netflix, that you can buy in the iTunes store. Actually I just double-checked it. The iTunes store and things like Hulu and Starz but not Netflix. That’s kinda weird. And I kind of see it just as a melding of the store and all the other apps you use to consume content. It’s just a way for them to provide convenience while at the same time upselling you on content Then really the only thing I cared about was the new Macbook Pro. They showed off the 13″ and 15″ models. They’re both thinner and lighter than previous iterations. Coming in at 3 and 4 lbs You get a new big ass trackpad. As far as ports go, they ditched everything except four USB-C’s. Also, in addition to these four ports, if you look really closely, there is something called a “Headphone Jack.” (sarcastically) Must be a cool new Apple feature. And they also have their brand new touchbar located at the top of the keyboard They showcased it being used to help with video editing, music creation, and even just texting emojis And you’ll be able to unlock your laptop with touch ID. And for those wondering, the specs and starting prices of each model, Boom! Here you go. You can order any and all of them today, but only the baby of the Pro line will be shipped today. And Apple saying the bigger and better versions will ship in two to three weeks. And my take away from this is 1. I think this upgrade just makes sense for people who haven’t had a new Macbook Pro in a long time and 2. I mean when it comes to something that is completely different and that I have never used before, I wonder how often will I use the touchbar? Skipping around in Final Cut, yeah I could see that working. Cycling through photos, that seems weird. Using it to launch favorite apps, that makes sense. It seems kind of cool but it’s not a feature that makes me go like, (melodramatically) ‘Oh God, I got to get this now.’ I don’t know, BUT something very cool: My buddy Johnathan Morrison, of course he has the YouTube channel ‘TLDToday’ He’s at the event getting a hands on and just like we did with the iPhone 7, He said,”Let’s do another dual giveaway.” So that’s what we’re going to do. One person on this video and one person on Johnathan’s video on the new Macbook Pro That person will win a brand new 13″ Macbook Pro! And to potentially be that one lucky beautiful bastard 1. Just make sure you’re subscribed to this channel 2. Make sure you hit that like button and 3. Leave a comment down below Preferrably it’s not a garbage comment / it pertains to something that I’ve talked about today, but uhh.. I can’t really stop you. The randomizer treats every comment equally. And wait, you know what? I just realized Apple is selling a $2,000-$5,000 laptop. A premium laptop that you cannot plug one of their phones directly into without a dongle. Then in tech news, Twitter is shutting down Vine. *reads tweets aloud* (For now) Now for anyone that’s been paying attention to the numbers on Vine, this is not a surprise. A lot of the big big Viners have realized they could make more money in other places jump to Facebook, Instagram, YouTube But what will be interesting to me is whether Twitter will absorb Vine-like features(or not) I mean would there even be a point? We don’t know if they are going to do something like that for the next few months. Then let’s talk about the guy that we’ve shared his videos in ‘Today, an awesome.’ He would jump from really high places into a pool. Then there was that other one where it looked like he was just inches away from dying. Well he just did a face reveal, uhh not on purpose, because his face reveal is a mugshot. *reads report aloud* Turns out it’s illegal to access private property without permission EVEN IF it’s for a dope video. “I know it’s surprising!”, he said sarcastically, but then said “sarcastically” incase anyone was too stupid to realize it was sarcasm. And I’m interested to see what happens from here because the guy has a massive archive of videos. In said videos, he’s most likely jumping from even more places he wasn’t supposed to have access to. And now that his face is out there, if he posts on the same channel, It’ll essentially be like ‘Hey look at this evidence of me committing a crime. This is my name and this how you can find me to arrest me.’ But the main point I take away from this, just.. Best. Mugshot. Ever. Then we had singer 7th Streeter in the news who blew up because she said she wasn’t allowed to do the national anthem at the 76ers game BECAUSE The organization is telling me that I can’t because I’m wearing a ‘We Matter’ jersey. (background voice: Whaaaaat?) So she claimed that because she was wearing a ‘We Matter’ shirt, which refers and raises awareness to the Black Lives Matter movement, that the 76ers organization would not let her perform. Now to this, the 76ers provided a statement that read: *reads statement aloud* And myself, like many, can’t figure out what they’re saying. Are they saying that she is lying? Are they saying there was a miscommunication and they would have been fine with it? Are they saying that that shirt is actually not a part of the positive message? Because it feels a little bit like the PR Department was like, ‘Ahh shit where’s the folder that has the *disgruntled moans* Where’s the folder that has the stock responses if someone says that maybe we aren’t fans of black people?!’ There also seems to be a case of he said she said going on. She told the associated press, “I was never given any kind of dress code.” A reporter from CBS 3 though said that a source said that *reads statement aloud* Anyway, confusion aside, the shirt doesn’t personally bother me. It’s not like she went out in a shirt that said ‘Fuck Whitey!’ It’s a peaceful acknowledgement of something that she supports that some other people support and some people don’t. And that’s actually where I’m going to end today’s show. And remember if you like this video, you like what I do on this channel, hit that like button! If you’re new here, hit that subscribe button! Also remember, if you want to snag one, grab a shirt while you can. But, that said, of course, as always, my name is Phillip DeFranco. You’ve just been filled in. I love your faces, and I’ll see you tomorrow.

  1. Yep. Millions of people throughout the history of the planet sat on a cloud and said "I want to be born on the African continent" While others said "I want to be born on the European continent" Sure, that's what happened…right. In places where the sun is hot, melanin produces dark skin to repel the suns rays and in colder climates melanin creates light skin to absorb the suns rays. Let me get this straight: We are supposed to be prejudiced about generations of heritage? This makes sense to whom??? I am attracted to nice men. I admit it!!! I am a racist against mean people. So, flog me.

  2. I don't think there even is such a thing as "preference" when talking about physical appearances.

    Cause like have you MET all the people of all races to decide that you like one better than the other. I mean okay, maybe in YOUR MIND you have a preference but I think if you were to meet the right person than it wouldn't matter what race they are.
    You would like them for who they are.

    Or maybe I'm not being realistic. But I don't know I've never fallen in love ^^. I used to think appearances were everything. I used to have 5 guys that I "liked" at the same time but only cause they were hot. But it's been YEARS since I've liked even one guy now. Nowadays I have to get to know someone to like them and I kinda assumed everyone outgrew their middle school self by now lol.

    I don't have a "type" or a "preference", honestly at this goddamn point in my life I've been single for too long to start being picky now. Plus I don't really think I have the right to be picky, like I'm pretty SOME days, but not many X'D.

    Just think of it like keeping your options open. 😀

  3. there is nothung wrong with not being sexually attracted to someone based on any reason, If you just arent into thats cool.

    however saying All of a race, arent attractive is wrong.

    You should be able to find one person in Any Race thats just enchanting Not someone you want to date or even kiss but can apriciate as art. a sculpture of them would be Fine art…

  4. I love your videos! Its amazing how you can give your view point and still convey the unbiased news. 🙂

  5. the problem here is being able to treat each person as an individual. if you've only dated a certain race or "type" of person before, this doesn't make you a racist. this could be due to circumstance or maybe these just happen to be the individuals that you have felt an attraction to. it's only racist if you say you would never be open to dating ANY INDIVIDUAL from a certain race (or races) because of prejudices and generalisations that you have about that race that in no way apply to the entire population of that race. It's also racist when people try to control the actions of others and say that they should only date within their own race (but I probably don't have to tell most people that)

  6. I prefer to date people who live longer.
    Asians tend to live longer than Whites, who outlive Blacks.
    I'm now racist.

  7. I could care less about race, only chemistry. If the chemistry is there, and I would automatically know it by how I feel with them, then I would date them.

  8. The idea behind saying that if someone says they are not attracted to a certain race it is racist is that you are saying all people in those race inherently have something you do not find attractive, when they are all very diverse and different people and the only thing all of them have in common is their race, you are sectioning that race into a certain box. I used to say I wasn't attracted to black guys until I actually looked into this idea that that type of preference is racist and sometimes comes from some type of prejudice, whether you're aware it's there or not and I realized I was being ridiculous saying that I'm not attracted to a huge chunk of the world's population when none of those people have something that I inherently found unattractive. The problem with saying you are only attracted to a race, specifically if it's different from your own, is the same thing, you are putting all people into a box of what you think they are like. You are again disregarding that they're a completely diverse group of people and not all the same.

  9. Just because I'm not sexually attracted to African American men doesn't make me believe that my race is superior to theirs or that the African American race are in any way inferior and therefore lacking the basic human rights.
    Tyler Oakley is fucking stupid for trying to say that it is a fact that being sexually attracted to only certain races is racist. By that logic then I guess girls who only like tall guys are… heightists… or guys that only like guys are sexist. Like wtf?

  10. Preferring a race when it comes to what you're attracted to isn't racist, but I would say (to people who are like that) don't completely rule out that option. If you hit it off with someone of a race you don't prefer when it comes to romantic partners, don't let that deter you from experimenting

  11. It can be racist/colorist. Preference means you favor something more than another BUT could go for the opposite. It becomes racist or colorist when you literally cut that specific margin out of your tastes.

  12. It's complicated. It isn't a black/white situation (no pun). There are fine lines here, and every situation heavily depends on each individual. There are many factors at play. There is systematic racism, societal and cultural preferences, media, implicit biases, personal preferences, and genetic/biological factors. The first couple of those are social aspects that we cannot personally control, yet we are fed this information from a young age and are taught to prefer certain things that we are unconsciously aware of. This can be unlearned. There exists a whole documentary explaining this about how all over the world, light skin is preferred to dark skin and dark-skinned people are considered unattractive. Individuals can become aware of this and learn to think dark-skinned people are gorgeous (whether or not you then might want to sleep with them is a little different).
    Then we have actual personal preference, which, after everything above has been considered and given conscious thought, a person can either be like "Well, I was taught to be racist, I still don't like __ people," or "That's interesting, I do think __ are beautiful, but I still might not necessarily want to sleep with them" (again, understand that those are not the only two paths and this situation is still complicated).
    And we also have genes that tell us that certain physical characteristics might be better for survival of offspring (unsure if this applies to homosexual, bisexual, asexual, pansexual, +). For example: hip-to-waist ratio, symmetry of faces, muscle mass, etc.

  13. I don't think if someone doesn't like/only likes a certain race/certain races it's racist, it's just preference. Everyone has a preference.

  14. Idk what other countries are like, but the root of the argument in the US is the fact that white women have been the standard of beauty since….forever. So maybe it isn't racism so much as the effects of a whitewashed society ingraining the same beauty standard into its citizens for the longest. Imagine living on an island where there's apples and oranges, but people always have said oranges are just spoiled apples so no one eats them. Then imagine new technology coming out and saying that oranges are completely different from apples and delicious in their own right! That's what the "preference" argument reminds me of. I really don't think there's such a thing I just think it's the biproduct of America idolizing euro features. People probs aren't as attracted to black girls cuz they look nothing like white girls. My whole life I've dealt with guys telling me their preference but the good news is that with each passing year the beauty world gets more and more diverse. Right now the ideal woman has shifted from Marylyn Monroe to Kim Kardashian. Still pretty pasty but still more diverse than the blonde haired blue eyes ideal.

  15. I know these are serious topics, but I have my captions on and every time Philip speaks every third word comes translated as "meow" … is this a glitch or…?

  16. It's not racism it's preference. Just like how some people prefer the color blue over orange or cheeseburgers instead of PB&J. It's not demeaning to say you have an ideal and someone for WHATEVER reason doesn't fit it. White guys, Black girls, Asian dudes, Latino women, there's so many people, you can afford to be picky.

  17. I don't like certain cultures, the shade of the person practicing it is irreverent but fuck it, I guess I'm racist for what little that means now.

  18. No. I have never had sexual attraction towards people who weren't Caucasian, however, I have nothing against them. I just never wanted to have sex with men who weren't. It's personal preference, like how some people won't eat pears.

  19. Interesting that Tyler Oakley allows himself to have a sexual preference, but not anyone else. He looks at females as a particular group and is not interested in them. One who is a female could consider that offensive. I am not, mind you but the point is the point. He is picking and choosing what he wants. I think this younger generation has lived with "political correctness" so long that they have no idea what it was like to live in an age of "good common sense" where every single solitary person was not so dang sensitive. Good grief. I am so exhausted by all this stuff (trying to say and do the current acceptable thing etc.), I am about to lose my ability to care. And that would be the worst tragedy of all to me.

  20. Okay I don't like what Tyler said here…just because you've never dated or fallen in love with a specific type of person doesn't mean you're against that person or their culture. Doesn't matter if its black or white. Could be Chinese. Suddenly if you haven't found at least one person from every race attractive you're racist? Last time I checked you're allowed to like who you like. Just like sexuality. You argue you dont like girls and you're a dude, does that make you sexist? NO. its your personal feelings and personal interest in a type of person. The one sighted ness in that was so cringy I just can't.

  21. I personally think that what he said was ignorant. I'm not into girls that are taller or guys that are shorter, among other specifications. I didn't CHOOSE that, it's just what I happened to be attracted to. Now, what WOULD be racist is going out of your way to say something cruel about a person's skin colour. Simply not wanting to have a relationship with them on the grounds that they don't strike your fancy doesn't make you a bad person. It's the same thing as being gay/bi/pan/etc.; you didn't CHOOSE to be attracted to that specific gender, and you don't bash on the gender you aren't attracted to.

  22. I don't get why this is considered 'racist'. It's like preferring blondes or tall dudes. It's a personal preference that has NOTHING to do with the person itself.

  23. I don't want to hire any whites or Mexicans. Why? Because I PREFER the Chinese. See I'm not racist, I'm just used to being around Asians…

  24. I love Tyler Oakley but people have preferences. He bases his whole channel on how he is gay(being gay is a preference!!!).I'm not going to be offended if someone doesn't want to date me because of my race, gender, or sexuality because I'm aware that not everyone is going to find me attractive.

  25. No its not racist most of the white girls I dated cheated on me so I don't like dating white girls because it's hard for me to trust them so saying something like that is racist is just retarded

  26. I think it comes to the reasoning to why someone is attracted to that race. For example if some one says they're attracted to only whites cause they think all people of colour are dirty, that would be racist. But i know for myself i dont like dating asian women because for some eerie reason all i think about is my mum (who is of phillipino decent). I feel is not racist, as the motive is different, ignorant yes but not racist

  27. White girl only attracted to black guys or not attracted to black guys is not racist I'm not into black people sexually and romantically so I'm not racist

  28. So he is saying sexual orientation is not a choice, except when it is?
    Okay, just checking.
    I mean seriously, if you genuinely don't get turned on by certain features it's not something you can change.
    If you however say "I don't like X feature" because you don't WANT to like it then that is another thing.

  29. Fuck, I guessed I missed the Mac book … Damn… Sorry Phil, I watched you years ago and now just trying to catch up… I love your face and I'll see you in a few minutes… When I watch more..

  30. I do have a preference on what race I date (I’m a white lesbian) I prefer to date asian or black girls it’s just preference not saying I wouldnt date a white girl or anything

  31. I don't think its racist to prefer to date a certain race, it just so happeneds that i haven't been attracted to a black or Asian man yet. I'm not saying I'm not open to dating those races, I just haven't wanted to date anyone from that ethnicity. I can't really help who I am or am not attracted to.

  32. I do not think it is racist being attracted to one race than another. Each race is different and has different features that people are attracted to. But, there will always be someone from a race someone is not normally attracted to, whom they find attractive. As an example, I like the features of a black man. I like the big noses, big ears, and how usually tall most of these men are. But that does not mean I would not find a man of a different race whom I would be attracted to. For example again, I tend to find some Asian guys attractive when they're wearing a suit and looking studious. But, I am also attracted to Zac Efron. It's just the features of what race someone is attracted to. But then again, it is proven that there is no such thing as race. Source–> http://www.newsweek.com/there-no-such-thing-race-283123

  33. Racist is pretty much just used as a slur against white people. If you are not white you can be as racist as you want. No one loses their job because they say they hate white people. You can say it's different because of the history of race relations, but that is just an excuse for why you think anti white racism is ok, it doesn't make it any less racist. Tyler is just part of the anti white left which looks for any reason to call a white person racist just like white bigots look for any reason to call a black person the n word.

  34. Why are people always trying to make something racist when it’s not? We have enough actual racial issues, we don’t need to start making up others.

  35. I don’t think its racist. Unless the person is against the race dating (example: interracial relationships) then its racist. But it you don’t like black guys, don’t date them. Or if you don’t like white guys, don’t date them. Its only wrong if you dint like black guys period. Or you see them as lesser because of their race. But i think if its only about sexual preference, let people be. Nobody can like everyone.

  36. It’s attraction. Nobody genuinely seeks out a specific race; they’re just attracted to who they’re attracted to. It’s not a societal thing. It’s not racism. It’s literally what turns you on or is attractive to you personally. Granted, you could be fluid as to which race you’re attracted to, but have a pattern/typical attraction. Sometimes a person of a race you’re not typically attracted to may be attractive to you. Good lord let’s not make attraction racist now, huh?

  37. My take: Preferences are absolutely influenced by society, but that doesn't mean there's actually anything you can do about it. Also, having a discriminatory preference is fine, but there's rarely any benefit to broadcasting it. Just don't date those people.

  38. I used to be a fan of Tyler Oakley, but his Twitter is pretty full of hate… it’s hard to like him anymore.

  39. Yeah, I only have an interest in hispanic/ latino guys… and that’s not racist. Now i’m not saying whites, blacks, or asians are ugly, but i am saying I am only attracted to someone my own ethnicity. Call me wrong but it’s my preference :))

  40. It’s not racist. It would be racist to say “blackness makes you ugly” or something like that. But to be more attracted to features that are more related to European lineage, which isn’t just skin, is not racist. If I look at white girls and get boners more than when I look at black girls, does that mean I’m racist? Or is it just my dick? I bet if Tyler heard a black person say their preference doesn’t really include European features, Tyler wouldn’t mind at all. He’s just one of the people that want to rage against the norm. Everyone of every race has preferences.

  41. Watching this in 2019 and noticed someone edited the captions to say "meow" in place of words.

  42. Oops. I guess I'm racist because I'm not sexually attracted to black men, and all of my boyfriends have been white

    Get off your SJW High Horse, Tyler. Like someone else said, there's a difference. Saying "I'm not attracted to black men" isn't racist. Saying "All black people are ugly" is racist

  43. 'type' can include things like age, hair color, eye color, height, personality traits like funny, charming, driven, quiet, etc., potentially even earning potential if you're that shallow….it should not ever include anything like race. if you're type includes or excludes a specific race, you need to really reevaluate your prejudices.
