About Decoded with Franchesca Ramsey

Decoded with Franchesca Ramsey is a YouTube-based MTV News show that tackles race in pop culture, even when it’s uncomfortable, taboo, or controversial. Franchesca’s “Shit White Girls Say… To Black Girls" video hit 11 million views, which prompted MTV to tap her for a weekly show with restrained, if-you-don’t-laugh-you’ll-weep style humor. Partnering with Dove, Franchesca now delivers self-esteem education vlogs to young women, but the episodes of Decoded touch on topics like “12 Racist Halloween Costumes for Kids" and “7 Myths about Cultural Appropriate Debunked." With over 100k followers and 200k subscribers, Franchesca sparks the conversation on social media.
