The hourly average fee when this question was posted was between 9 and 10 Satoshi per Byte (sat/B). The latest TX's that I just randomly checked all had 10.03 sat/B fee which is higher than the 4.5 sat/B that you sent. Transactions are at a hourly peak right now. Wait it out and it'll probably go through in the next couple of hours as the mempool empties. ...

A transaction could go unconfirmed indefinitely. The order in which transactions are confirmed is decided by miners, and generally they will be incentivized to include only the highest fee-rate transactions, to maximize their revenue. Even a low fee-rate transaction may eventually confirm, once the mempool clears out. But there is no guarantee of this, ...

Your transaction paid a fee of 1674 satoshis for 372 bytes, or a fee rate of 4.5 satoshis per byte, which was a reasonable estimate in the past hour (via https://mempool.space/tv): There was just a slow block with #600,283 taking 37 minutes to be found (via https://blockchair.com) and it looks like your transaction would have been exactly in that little ...

Yes, miners can censor transactions. A mining pool (or solo miner) can choose to not add a transaction to any blocks that they create. And, of course, this can be done dynamically so that transactions that match whatever arbitrary rules they want can be disallowed. However this only effects one mining pool or miner.
