What I realized many moons ago is that These guru's are NOT
our friends, our "homies", or even our associates for that matter. They have no loyalty to or allegiance with their viewers. For most of them, it's about business. Where the audience falters is where they don't remember the power of the almighty dollar. For it, people will sell their soul and most certainly their precious subbies. Case and point, how many of us hate our jobs but do it like we love it cause we have bills to pay and hair to buy? I know I do. I will fake the funk for that bi-weekly direct deposit. Yes ma'am.
I'm not saying what their doing is right, and I'm not saying it is necessarily wrong either. It just is what it is. I do believe that youtubers need to be honest in stating whether or not they are paid for a particular review. If they are paid, I wouldn't hear ish by "whomp whomp whomp" they entire time they were lying... I mean talking. But that's just me.
As for us as consumers, we have some responsibility in this whole scheme to. Be smarter, do your research and absorb the wisdom that is BHM. As a result of these things, I ain't be "got" by a guru yet. *Knock on Wood*
What is all comes down to is that the hair companies and guru's are all conspiring to get in our pockets and I needs all my coins!
