The hip hop explicit music i use.

Why do you think your post(s) was censored?

Because they don’t want black creators to be seen.

I wasn’t able to and I couldn’t and can’t get anyone from Instagram to even respond.

What effect has your experience of censorship had on you?

Makes me want to stop even creating.

What’s one thing you want people to know about this topic?

Try to keep going. It’s definitely hard but don’t give up.
