An agnostic doesn't know if there is a higher power, an atheist believes there isn't.

Agnostic says we cannot know for sure if there is a god or not and doesn't take a position.

Atheist says there is no evidence to support the claim of god or gods, so no reason to believe one or any exists.

Agnostics want to believe in gods or higher powers. Atheists don't care.

I watched some of her other videos. I get what she is saying. Some of it raised questions with my though. How does religion promote only white males. When Jesus and his disciples were not even white. Sorry I feel like I am missing something. :/

It promotes [*1] and helps entrench the status quo.  Where the status quo is white and male, that's what gets reinforced.

[*1] or is just prone to being co-opted to promote
