DUMBFOUNDEAD
After the last Academy Awards and the regular whitewashing of hollywood roles, i wrote this song and made this video to add my piece to the conversation. thanks guys! new album coming out in July!
ImSubtle
This video was one of the best ive seen in along time. creative as hell imo

Asians speaking up on how they are made to feel and all the white privilege starts acting up lmfao. Think of all the stereotypes about Asians and nobody bats an eye, its a joke etc. But when Asians finally confront this reality with a perspective on the subjugation they (and other minorities) are made to internalize, white people get all defensive. Like I always say, people don't know what it's like to be affected by a problem, until they're on the receiving end of it.

The message of this video though. shit is real

JACKIE CHAN GOT AN OSCAR!! AFTER 56 YEARS AND OVER 150 FILMS

This guy is talented and his work is well done. I wonder if he is going to do a tour. I would so go.
Dmetrius 7
He has more talent than many of other so called "rappers" that only do shit instead of music... I can't understand why he can't get the same fame and recognition as they do...

Im not gonna lie. There are only are white people trying to play asain movies. I can't name any movies where the asain guy is the main character movie.(besides jackie chan and bruce lee) Great wall of china has a white man playing it. shouldn't it be an asain not a white American. it would be different if it was a story about an American becoming a samurai or something.

Asians are simply not welcome in Hollywood. AmeriKKKa has always been racist towards Asians; there was a handsome Japanese actor named Sessue Hayakawa and he was driven out of US cinema in the early 1900s.
Andrew Garcia
Damn, this dope.
branden misinski
I'll never understand why people hate on him. dude gas actually talent. your hate can be used somewhere else
KalaniKeh
Who else remember Dumbfounded's rap battles?
Wogus Lee
I see white people saying how Jackie Chan is an example that shows how Hollywood or the American media is not whitewashed or racist. However, that just strengthens Dumb's argument even more. Can you ppl name any other asian actors other than Bruce Lee, Jackie Chan or Steven Yeun that are successful or famous as them? . . . Exactly.

This man is a hero for Asian Americans as well as the U.S. in general. A much better roll model than most celebrities
김우겸
맞는 말이다. 우리 아시아 동양인은 전 세계 인구 25%를 차지한다. 왜 흑인들과 히스패닉들의 차별만 관심가지고 우리 동양인은 무시하는거냐? 할리우드 영화에서도 백인 흑인이 주인공인 영화들이 많지만 동양인이 주가 된 영화는 적다. 아시아인들을 차별하지마라

This is some of the realist shit I've heard in a while #asianpride

When you see people defending a historically and presently whitewashed Hollywood (not trying to tick off white people here I mean get that it's not your personal fault). This song isn't just about the Asian reps, it's about the way they're depicted. A lot of times they're there for comedic relief, playing the anatagonist or have very minor roles. Either that or the roles enforce a stereotypical image that heavily relies on Chinese-based imagery. It promotes the problem that every Asian ethnicity is automatically assumed to be Chinese in the eyes of Americans.

This was crazy good, and the lyrics and the concept behind the song and video are so true.
LIL TAY RICH AND FINNA GET RICHER
"... and the only yellow men were all statues." - I used to think about this a lot as an asian american, and now I think about it all the time. :/ We're the side characters; we are Long Duck Dong in 16 Candles, or Data in the Goonies, or the unnamed scientist who's the token asian in the film. We are exotic yet acceptable, like a generic Kong Fu summer blockbuster. And this isn't even getting into that white-washing BS like in the Last Samurai. I wanna be able to see myself as a main character for once. #YellowPride

Damn the dog at the beginning is not prefessional at he looks at the camera
Trent Da Gamer
Love the song and the video but as a "Black Man Living in America" there is nothing cool or great about being profiled or considered a "physical threat". Hell just look at all the recent police shootings of unarmed black men.

I’m not even Asian but I thought this was woke af because people fail mention that people of color seem to not always have that ‘Hollywood look’. But in conclusion I love dumbfoundeds vibe and style ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️

Dumbfoundead is so talented, and super cool heheh.
Hero Guy
You see the boys reaction towards the end? He's going to experience the same fate throughout his life. Western power emasculated and downplay Asian masculinity on purpose and Asian females are considered hypersexual and white.

Chinese Translate Of Lyric (你以為我很安全,我想這是你第一個錯誤,誰說我是無害的?) (verse1) 那天晚上我看了奧斯卡頒獎典禮,唯一的黃種人就是那個小金人獎盃 我們有將近世界1/4的人口,卻被這個房間裡面他媽的1%人的嘲笑 該死的竹製天花板(我猜是隱喻天生限制),我想我必須扮演一名惡棍 Ol' Dirty Bastard(ODB)站上了葛萊美,訴說著Wu-Tang是為了孩子 Bruce Jenner是個女人、O.J. Simpson被無罪釋放、Kim Kardashian是個英雄。 他們現在準備讓一個前途無量(the sky is the limit)的亞洲人擔任要角 我射出子彈並重新裝填,從沒在這個角度看過Chino(奇諾) 他總是謹守著本分,從不與Jonathan的人廝混 (hook) 看似安全,直到某天瘋癲 我發誓,如果事情沒有改變,我的行為不能受到指責(Stand Up!) 我想你必須躲好了(you gotta duck)!你知道你才不在乎! 我來拿回我被剪掉的片段(fuck you,付我錢),你知道我一點都不在乎! (verse2) 我從沒有停止聽到過你們所幹的蠢事,我想我可以做所有你們做過的事 如果我在沒拿到機會,我想這個哥們會出現在五點鐘的新聞上 你從沒看過這麼狂的黃種男孩,在螢幕前閃耀,聽到警報,我得到消息 繼續將他們分類(打壓他們),我不想贊成暴力,沈默會是黃種男孩的一種舉動。 它一直都是一樣的,我發誓遊戲規則不會改變 你說什麼叫做沒有空間,我就製造更多空間給你 你知道我超屌,作為一個motherfucker,我將用大嗓門切開寂靜 因為我很酷的motherfucker,你一直以為我很安全,直到我問你哪裡安全。 (hook) 看似安全,直到某天瘋癲 我發誓,如果事情沒有改變,我的行為不能受到指責(Stand Up!) 我想你必須躲好了(you gotta duck)!你知道你才不在乎! 我來拿回我被剪掉的片段(fuck you,付我錢),你知道我一點都不在乎!

I love the message of this song and the creativity of the mv. Keep up the good work!! Also, I love how at the end the kids are Asian with two white parents😂😂

Emasculating a man is the worst thing you can do to the male humsn species.. it's ironic that traditional asian culture is the most macho of all cultures lol. Shows you that beta males have an agenda.......

Sad how people can casually make racist jokes about you if you are Asian, and nobody bats an eye.

I'm so mad at myself for just finding out about you

this is sick 😪 I definitely should've known about you wayyy before 88Rising
Patrick McGregor
I watched this shit so many times.
Breanna Wilkins
Ghost in the shell is a perfect example of this happening recently. Scarlett Johansson was cast? lol like wtf would you get one of the whitest women in Hollywood to play a character that's based of a Japanese character from an anime... XD There's plenty of young AND beautiful Asian actresses who could have played the lead and done a great job. The movie will probably flop like all these live action movies anyways though... (sigh)
