Chinese ban on youtube and similar sites.
Now why would the Chinese be banning youtube? Any particular reason? too much bandwidth used on it at the offices or what?
Does anybody know what do Americans ban on the internet?
It has nothing to do with infrastructure or bandwidth. It has to do with the Chinese government censorship of what they will allow to be read on the Internet. They aren't exactly an open government. Remember Tianneman Square?
America bans child porn. That's about it.

There isn't any way not to explain it apolitically. There isn't any way to "spin" this. It's blunt and in your face.
I agree on this point. The fact is, the differentiation between the governments of China and the US (and any others) is one of ideology, and ideology of this sort is inherently political.
