Alphabet Inc.’s YouTube has banned six channels known to promote white supremacist content -- including those of David Duke, Stefan Molyneux and Richard Spencer -- escalating the company’s efforts to root out hate speech and respond to recent criticism of the video site.

The company said the channels violated its policies by claiming members of protected groups were inferior. Duke is the former grand wizard of the Klu Klux Klan, while Molyneux and Spencer consider themselves philosophers.
