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 guy is talented and his work is well done. I wonder if he is going to do a tour. I would so go.
Chris Pineda
This was fucking genius! So real and artistic I love it. Shouts out to the team that assembled this piece.

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

"... 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

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 ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️

Dumbfounded much love from chicago! since 2013
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.
αѕhhh lєєє
This IS EVOLUTIONARY I LOVE DIS🔥🔥🔥🔥😁😁

Great message, it's all true unfortunately
Erin Pareja
this is so underrated, i dont have anyone to talk about this masterpiece.
Supadupanoob
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.
Jariqueen
this is sick 😪 I definitely should've known about you wayyy before 88Rising

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...

SKRT
Sad how people can casually make racist jokes about you if you are Asian, and nobody bats an eye.
Ray Ha
I don't know if anyone else noticed, I had to check again just to make sure, but at the end scene the Asian boy was obviously frowning while the Asian girl had a smile, could it be a detail that they intended that reflects Dumbfoundead's expectations of the future of Asian entertainers in Hollywood?
