Youtubers are infamous for becoming attack dogs when they get behind a computer screen, as well as any social media website where anonymity can be maintained.

This video had 37000 thumbs up and 1900 thumbs down, MSNBC, which is less than 5% of the viewers, assuming most of them represent roughly those who were making derogatory comments. So I can't say the racism is that prevalent or not from this video; it's just a few (racist) trolls that persisted to get a rise out of the other viewers. It doesn't necessarily speak to racial relations in America, and definitely not representative of most or even many of the people that constitute the American public. Thus, this isn't a proper platform to open a dialogue for racial tensions.

Though, it does speak to internet speech, of which is much more volatile and almost non-consequential given the anonymity.
