Net Neutrality.

Racial profiling.

Peanut butter or jelly?

Those are some of the topics YouTube creators Bethany Mota, GloZell Green and Hank Green said they’d ask President Barack Obama about in a video announcing YouTube’s response to the State of the Union: #YouTubeAsksObama.

For the first time, YouTube creators will interview Obama about the concerns facing them and their audiences on Thursday, Jan. 22, at the White House, according to the official YouTube blog. Those audiences can use #YouTubeAsksObama on social media to share their questions and concerns.

Every year since 2010, the president has followed up his State of the Union by answering questions submitted on YouTube or by live Google Hangout.
