From the New York Times, a pretty good article by a freelancer:

The Internet Demands Uplifting Videos. So He Stages Them.

Dhar Mann and other “wholesome” channels combine the high-definition slickness of today’s YouTube content with the feel of a corporate-training video.

By Robin Kaiser-Schatzlein
Aug. 4, 2021, 5:00 a.m. ET

Few online genres are as fascinating as the realm of “wholesome” content, an ever-widening pool of tender, morally uplifting stories about moments of kindness, human beings caring for one another and people leaving big tips. Most of this wholesomeness is found in real life, captured in videos of charming family moments or warm encounters with strangers. Other examples are at least manufactured in real life, as with the TikTok influencer who films himself buying things for people living on the streets of Los Angeles. You might think a staged, fictional video of an inspiring moment, clumsily scripted and stiffly acted, would be infinitely less compelling, and yet: Consider the YouTube sensation Dhar Mann and his 11.2 million subscribers.

… In another, “Realtor Judges Poorly Dressed House Buyer, He Lives to Regret It,” we see two agents vying to sell a luxury home. The more experienced one, who has the unctuous dirtball mien of a young Steve Buscemi, tries to turn away a Black man in a cutoff T-shirt, tending instead to a rich-looking white woman. But the rookie, who says, “You should never judge someone based on their appearance,” helps the Black man — who, of course, turns out to be a wealthy real estate investor in disguise. He not only buys the home but also asks the rookie to work for him.

Mann is a serial entrepreneur, the owner of a cosmetics business and a former cannabis-industry supplier. He was engaged to a star of the reality show “Shahs of Sunset” and once pleaded no contest to charges of defrauding the City of Oakland; the conviction was later expunged. He started his YouTube account in 2018, dispensing motivational advice. The pivot into morality plays came fast, and he has since cranked out more than 400 videos. They cover an astonishing array of topics, from the workplace (“CEO Threatens to Fire Janitor, Son Teaches Him A Lesson”) to assimilation (“Son Hates His Mexican Culture, Friend Teaches Him A Lesson”), fatherhood (“Dad Abandons AUTISTIC CHILD, He Lives to Regret It”) and race (“Lady Calls Cops On Black Man Who Has 2 Bikes, Instantly Regrets It”).

The same tropes recur in shifting combinations: spoiled kids, “gold diggers,” homeless men, chefs, people being shamed. The realtor story is repeated in a sketch about bartenders; the one about the Mexican American son is mirrored by another about an Asian American daughter.

These clips combine the high-definition slickness of today’s YouTube content with the feel of a corporate-training video you would watch alone in your manager’s office on the first day of work. The sets seem hastily decorated, denuded of all but the most obvious props. The acting is either overexaggerated or barely there, and Mann’s subtlety-free writing broadcasts characters’ motivations as loudly as possible. (“Don’t waste your time with poor-looking people,” the dirtball realtor says.) His videos also exude a child’s dreamlike grasp of life’s finer details. The spoiled son still pays for pizza with cash on delivery; the dirtball realtor completes a multimillion-dollar loan application in minutes; the Mexican American son is bafflingly hostile about his mother’s Cinco de Mayo decorations and, incredibly, revolted by the smell of enchiladas. Some stories are built with such broad strokes that they insult the viewer’s intelligence; others are so surreal that they verge into great, if accidental, comedy. …

Parents sometimes comment on Mann’s videos to say they intend to show the clips to their kids; like training films, the videos exist in part for one person to foist upon another. But the enthusiastic comments on each new video confirm that kids and adults watch these stories on their own time….

Watch enough of Mann’s videos, and you can’t help noticing how ruthlessly and tactically they employ up-to-the-minute caricatures and stereotypes, fine-tuned to soar within YouTube’s algorithm. Numerous videos riff on the theme of white “Karens” accusing Black men of crimes. These are stories we already know, having watched the real-life versions go viral. Mann, recognizing our appetite for more, obliges by staging it. But he also comforts us by ensuring that the antagonists always get their comeuppance, the smooth conclusion we are denied in the real world. And he flatters us by making the problematic characters so obviously wrong that we have no choice but to identify with goodness — and, often, to feel bizarrely moved by the uplifting outcome we always knew was coming.

The contemporary references are so heavy that these videos are often not even parables. They are hermetically sealed re-enactments of real events: situations we have already made up our minds about yet crave to safely relive as fiction.

There’s an ever-increasing demand for examples of evil white people being mean to saintly blacks. Reality doesn’t seem to produce enough such incidents for people these days, so entrepreneurs make more of them up. The same demand that is making this guy a fortune is behind the constant flood of hate hoaxes from Tawana Brawley in 1987 up through Jussie Smollett and beyond.

Dharminder Mann has a rather colorful past. From the San Jose Mercury News in 2014:

‘Ganjapreneur’ Dhar Mann sentenced to 5 years probation for defrauding Oakland

By MALAIKA FRALEY | Bay Area News Group
PUBLISHED: February 5, 2014 at 7:53 a.m. | UPDATED: October 22, 2018 at 6:58 a.m.

Editor’s note: Dhar Mann paid the fine and was released early from probation.

OAKLAND — An Oakland businessman whose work in the marijuana industry earned him the moniker “ganjapreneur” has been sentenced to five years probation for pocketing city grant money meant for building improvements.

Dharminder “Dhar” Mann, 29, must also repay the city of Oakland \$44,399 by April 1 under the plea deal in which he pleaded no contest to five felony counts of defrauding the city, according to the Alameda County District Attorney’s Office. He was sentenced Friday.

Mann owns a real estate company, a luxury car rental firm, and is the CEO of the hydroponics company, weGrow. He was featured on the June 2011 cover of Mother Jones magazine as a “ganjapreneur” in the medical marijuana business. His parents operate Friendly Cab, Oakland’s largest taxi service, and like him contribute to local political campaigns.

A paragon of morality whom we should all look to for moral lessons.

    Corporate advertisers.

    YouTube videos are "monetized" by having ads play before, during, and after a video, much like television commercials.

    However, YouTube has random vague rules that will "demonetize" random videos if YouTube doesn't like them. Basically, if your content isn't Marxist garbage or cute puppies, you can count on your channel being demonitized sooner or later. Most Non-communist political creators are using YouTube to build an audience and then are moving on to other platforms that allow donations or are subscription-based, e.g. Locals or Rumble.

    2) In-video sponsored ads promoted directly by the YouTuber
    3) Full-on sponsored videos, which are little more than infomercials.
    4) Product placement
    5) Patreon donations
    6) Super chats, which are donations made during live streams in hopes of having one's comment highlighted during the stream.
    7) Selling merchandise such as shirts and hats, as well as things like courses and private tutoring sessions.

    America was created and built and full of settler types--hard working, practical, mechanical, innovative, willing to fight .... and loyal. That is why--developing the rich American geography--America was free and prosperous with the biggest economy and best technology in the world.

    Then--inevitably--the middle men showed up. Liquor peddlers, snake oil salesmen ... financiers, "entertainers", assorted hucksters and rent seekers ... car dealers, porn purveyors, casino magnates ...

    We so blessed to have people who are marginally better at sucking a buck out of running convenience stores, or hotels, or taxi companies or gambling dens or peddling liquor (or drugs) or making porn (of whatever stripe). Just a huge f'ing benefit to the nation.

    If we were allowed to just say "no".

The pale, blue eyed and blond parents compete in every video over who can do a better job at baby worshipping young Jack (also known as Dad’s beloved Buddy who has his own little skate board).

    You have never seen anything like it, day after day of pure baby worship and happiness. Of course their real life is not always like this but it’s not an act. The commenters can’t get enough of the baby and Dad making a fuss over him and loving him up every day. And they include people with Muslim and Hispanic names and also people with black faces.

    What I am afraid of is that the mass of NPCs will remember these informational droppings, allow the backs of their minds to become coated in the residue, and then draw upon them in place of evidence when their worldviews are being formed for them. Prime time major network dramas and procedurals for years have attested, to those dippy enough to vegetate before them, the exact inverse world our Democrat leadership requires for tyranny. Red-hatted white racists running amok, rich incels plotting to shoot up their schools, the earnest hard-working intelligent minority guy shafted by the evil rich incel in a red hat.

    It's the sort of "hustler" personality that you frequently find among West Asians.

    Armenians, Italians, Greeks, Lebanese, Chaldeans, Israelis, Persians, Coptic Egyptians, Bukharians, etc. Northwestern India (homeland of Sikhs) has a lot of West Asian ancestry and cultural influence.

    Steve Sailer has referred to West Asians as "Men with Gold Chains."

    High in extraversion, high in shamelessness, obsessed with money&fame, corrupt, gaudy, obnoxious, sleazy. Like a used car salesman, but even worse. Like Trump, but with an added degree of Oriental exoticism.

    These people aren't always wealthy, but they love to create the impression of wealth - and they do so in the gaudiest way possible. They love to own businesses in industries that are known for fast cash and easy tax evasion. Many are "10K ballers."

    They're the sort who live at home into their 30s, run a cash-rich business (like a gas station or convenience store) financed by their parents, and go deep into debt to drive a BMW. They love gold chains, pinky rings, and clothing with brand names written in BIG letters. The women can be hot sometimes, but are ultra obnoxious and known for having a "princess complex."

    So he got his money from his wealthy parents.

    Then he used their money to finance an ostentatious lifestyle, start businesses, buy social media followers, and pay some social media experts to make highly marketable videos.

    Instead of thinking of him as a SJW or social media influencer, think of him as a venture capitalist. He's investing in a pro-SJW social media enterprise not so much because he's politically progressive or social media savvy, but because he's a hustler who sees an opportunity for big money and fame. He's business savvy and senses a good investment opportunity.

    He's a grifter who hides behind the facade of SJW morality.

    He used to be a ganja-preneur. Now he's a SJW-preneur.

    In all his businesses, I bet he hasn't done much real work. I bet he just uses his dad's money to hire people, who then proceed to scam/overcharge him and provide a crappy product. That's why he ran into financial problems in the past.

    Unfortunately, in this case, there's a huge demand for SJW stuff these days. So even if his people create a crappy product, there's a large market for this BS content.

    If you want to succeed in today's America, creating (or paying someone to create) lots of online SJW content is a good idea. So aggressive grifters from around the world are migrating to the U.S. to hustle in this niche.

    It’s the sort of “hustler” personality that you frequently find among West Asians.

    Armenians, Italians, Greeks, Lebanese, Chaldeans, Israelis, Persians, Coptic Egyptians, Bukharians, etc. Northwestern India (homeland of Sikhs) has a lot of West Asian ancestry and cultural influence.

    Steve Sailer has referred to West Asians as “Men with Gold Chains.”

    High in extraversion, high in shamelessness, obsessed with money&fame, corrupt, gaudy, obnoxious, sleazy. Like a used car salesman, but even worse. Like Trump, but with an added degree of Oriental exoticism.

    These people aren’t always wealthy, but they love to create the impression of wealth – and they do so in the gaudiest way possible. They love to own businesses in industries that are known for fast cash and easy tax evasion. Many are “10K ballers.”

    They’re the sort who live at home into their 30s, run a cash-rich business (like a gas station or convenience store) financed by their parents, and go deep into debt to drive a BMW. They love gold chains, pinky rings, and clothing with brand names written in BIG letters. The women can be hot sometimes, but are ultra obnoxious and known for having a “princess complex.”

    https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=XJzsM7uTDpw

    This is a brief clip of The Beeston Fam. They are prosperous but non working (at least on screen) young couple and their new baby. The pale, blue eyed and blond parents compete in every video over who can do a better job at baby worshipping young Jack (also known as Dad's beloved Buddy who has his own little skate board).

    You have never seen anything like it, day after day of pure baby worship and happiness. Of course their real life is not always like this but it's not an act. The commenters can't get enough of the baby and Dad making a fuss over him and loving him up every day. And they include people with Muslim and Hispanic names and also people with black faces.

    No should necessary here, of course, unless the reader grasps that it serves to be ironic about those moral plays in reverse gear.

    If I try to reformulate the quote above without being ironic, I’d go:

    That’s what is so attractive about being high: You’re above the real-world calamities. Put in another way: Being high means to be beyond good and bad. – You need not bother with those nasty tensions that the distinction between right and wrong brings with it, because you feel right. – You’re high above the real world in regressive heaven, always on the brink of neglection, decompensation, self-pity, paranoia, selfishness, self-centeredness, narcissism, schizophrenia etc. pp. .

    PS
    That’s why it is so difficult to be high and reasonable at the same time (see Charles Bukowski (Factotum, Poems) or the Coen Brother’s The Big Lebowski (which is – not least a (well disguised = comically suprising) moral play)).

I look for the organizations that have a history of good videos, including the final adoption of rescued animals. I tend to ignore any videos made outside the US, particularly in India.

    YouTube videos are "monetized" by having ads play before, during, and after a video, much like television commercials.

    However, YouTube has random vague rules that will "demonetize" random videos if YouTube doesn't like them. Basically, if your content isn't Marxist garbage or cute puppies, you can count on your channel being demonitized sooner or later. Most Non-communist political creators are using YouTube to build an audience and then are moving on to other platforms that allow donations or are subscription-based, e.g. Locals or Rumble.

The Chad, an avatar of the writer’s eight grade bullies (or just of the well adjusted kids who the writer envied at that age). The verbal superweapon, perfected from years of stewing on what he should have said in response to his middle school oppressors. The Hollywood contrivance where the Chad delivers a precise cue to allow the hero to deliver his devastating retort. Chad receiving the rhetorical knockout with resentment and humiliation and perhaps burgeoning remorse. The hero refraining from glee and triumphalism – it has fallen to him to enact proportionate justice and salutary moral education, he’s not the sort of person to get any personal satisfaction out of finally being the dominant disher-out of humiliation.

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Schwarzfahrer

    A motorbiker (Stefan Merki), who early in the film was unable to start his motorcycle, boards a tram in Berlin, and witnesses a black man (Paul Outlaw) sitting down next to an elderly white woman (Senta Moira). In the entire 12 minutes, the old woman racially abuses the black man, stating that blacks stink, are unintelligent, criminal and the perfect carrier for AIDS. The biker feels uncomfortable, but does not dare to interrupt. The black man stays quiet for the entire film, until the tram controller arrives: when the old woman produces her ticket, he grabs and swallows it. When the old woman accuses the black man of eating her ticket, he coolly shows his valid ticket to the controller; the latter nods at him and arrests the old woman [I don’t think that’s possible, he can just take her name and address]. The punch line is that both the black man and the old woman are “Schwarzfahrer” now: the black man who rides a train, is a non-offensive “black rider”, while the old woman now is a real law-breaking Schwarzfahrer (i.e. fare dodger). The one passenger the viewer knows who never possessed a ticket, the motorbiker, escapes without the controller checking his ticket.

    I’m sympathetic to the black man, Christian Cooper, in Central Park. He’s birdwatching, and a lady with an unlawfully-unleashed dog permits the dog to wander near him and disturb his birdwatching. He asks her to put the dog on a leash. She refuses. He then says, if she does what she likes, he’ll do what he likes, and she won’t like it. Most likely, he was intending to kick the dog if it got near him.

    She then calls the police in a hysterical voice (I heard the tape) and says “A black man is threatening me.”

    Now, if she were really in fear of her life, what would be the logical move for her? You guessed it: put the leash on the dog, as the law requires.

    Now, does being a neurotic, hysterical female merit losing her job, losing the dog, getting constant threats? Of course not. She should have gotten a citation and a \$100 fine. And that’s it. Even the black guy, Cooper, said after awhile, enough is enough and leave her alone.

    I saw one of these videos on Facebook. It was about a “mean girl who fat shames a plus size dancer.” It was so contrived and full of stereotypes. The mean girl was a very experienced blonde dancer, and the plus size dancer was a very inexperienced black dancer. They were competing to be a dancer on a dance team, or something like that. It was pretty simplistic and bad.

    I'm sympathetic to the black man, Christian Cooper, in Central Park. He's birdwatching, and a lady with an unlawfully-unleashed dog permits the dog to wander near him and disturb his birdwatching. He asks her to put the dog on a leash. She refuses. He then says, if she does what she likes, he'll do what he likes, and she won't like it. Most likely, he was intending to kick the dog if it got near him.

    She then calls the police in a hysterical voice (I heard the tape) and says "A black man is threatening me."

    Now, if she were really in fear of her life, what would be the logical move for her? You guessed it: put the leash on the dog, as the law requires.

    Now, does being a neurotic, hysterical female merit losing her job, losing the dog, getting constant threats? Of course not. She should have gotten a citation and a $100 fine. And that's it. Even the black guy, Cooper, said after awhile, enough is enough and leave her alone.

    YouTube videos are "monetized" by having ads play before, during, and after a video, much like television commercials.

    However, YouTube has random vague rules that will "demonetize" random videos if YouTube doesn't like them. Basically, if your content isn't Marxist garbage or cute puppies, you can count on your channel being demonitized sooner or later.

    Park – who has been outspoken on ‘woke’ culture – claims she grabbed hold of one of the women and was trying to call police but bystanders intervened.

    She claims about 20 people, many who she said were white, accused her of being racist for blaming the women for mugging her.
