Hi Guys, welcome to my channel, I am Maggie.

Today's video is going to be a little bit different. I don't even

know how to name this video, because

it is more about a....something that interest me

lately and I want to share with you guys,

and also some of the effects I want to add

after I show you the whole thing.

Hopefully, you can learn something from it.

But recently, I watched some clips from my recommended on YouTube

from the Dr. Phil. I guess the Dr. Phil

shall kind of become the viral character

incubator in a way. Because he has given us,

eh.. what's her name? Cash Me Outside Girl,

Danielle Bregoli,

who is now living in LA and going out tours,

having new singers out,

and she is doing all the things,

she is definitely famous and making bank.

And recently, Dr. Phil induced another girl,

Treasure, she is an African American girl

that identifies as white.

So she thinks she is white.

Not only that . There is no....Personally, I think

there is no problem with that. Because you can identify as whatever you want

identify as.

But she is extremely racist

as something she said on the show

are just vulgar.

Alright, that is Treasure. And also

there is another girl that is her exactly

opposite. Her name is Whoa Vicky.

She is a white girl who identifies as black.

Well, she has been famous for a while.

Maybe this is what Treasure got her inspiration from.

It blows my mind. So I want to share with you

and see what you think of it.

Okay, here is my opinion on these two girls.

In my mind, I feel like Treasure is

100% doing this for attention.

She wants to be famous.

And she knows fame brings money

and she knows only

by saying the most extreme comments

can get her attention. And that

is what going on right now.

I mean I clicked on the video because of the topic...

you know, because of the...the title.

It is interesting enough for you to click on it.

And that is what is going on on YouTube,

and I guess everywhere. At least that is one way.

I am not saying that is the only way.

But that is definitely one way to get you know this.

But I don't know if that famous is going to last. Because where do you want to go with this, right?

So, Treasure, I don't know

I don't know what she is going to do with this. I don't know where she is going with this.

So, that is just something that happened.

I just want to let you know.

And Whoa Vicky, obviously,

she has career right now. You know, she is buying a house or something.

I have no idea. But I know she is making money.

And she is living in LA.

Maybe Treasure saw this and she thought hey,

maybe I can do the same thing,

you know, become the next Whoa Vicky. So, that's that.

And now, let's move on to some of the effects.

I pulled out demography of the Unite States.

And let's look at some effects, shall we?

I can't remember this. So, I am just going to read it to you.

It is every interesting. Well, first of all,

let's look at the Stats, okay?

White American account for 73.3%

of the population.

Then black or African American, 12.6%

Then, the American Indian and Alaska Native,

0.8%.

Asian is 5.2%.

Native Hawaiian and Other Pacific Islander,

0.2%, and other races, 4.8%.

Now, let's look at some interesting effects.

Because we just said

whites account for 73.3%, right?

But then, let's see what counts as 'White' in America.

A person having origins in any of the original peoples

of Europe,

the Middle East, and North Africa.

One thing that is very interesting that I found out before

is that we know there are

a lot of Mexican Americans in America.

But, what race are they?

Because Mexican is not a race.

So, Mexican American are actually

considered white.

But then, if you look into this,

There is a term you need to know, is called

the Non-Hispanic Whites.

Non-Hispanic Whites make up 62.6%

of the country's population.

So then, you have 73.3%

minus 62.6%,

then you get a number. I am gonna count it.

But then,

That's about 10 something percent

that are Hispanic whites. The U.S. Office of Management and Budget

defines "Hispanic or Latino" as a person of Cuban,

Mexican, Puerto Rican, Dominican,

South or Central American,

or other Spanish culture or origin regardless of race.

Because you know, that if you are

Mexican American, you are considered

a minority.

But your race doesn't even show on the racial

or on the Race Census.

So, it is just very interesting to me.

I am sure they have the reasons for why it is the way it is right now,

and how it is set up.

So, I am not gonna to worry myself too much about that,

but I am just thinking that is interesting,

and I want to share with you. I think that's all I have to say for today's video.

I don't know if it is something you are interested in.

But I think there are so many topics

that we can do in the future and this is just

one of them. I like to talk about random stuffs,

because I think culture is a big thing

when it comes to your language skills.

So, I just say it is something I want to share with you guys,

and I hope you enjoy this video. If you have other topics,

you are welcomed to comment them down below.

You are also welcomed to let me know what you think of this and comment.

And I have a lot of fun making this video.

I hope you enjoy it. Thank you for watching.

And I will see you by next video.
