Asian-American rapper DUMBFOUNDEAD has taken to YouTube to address his feelings of the ‘white-washed‘ Academy-Awards. In this new music video, ‘SAFE‘ shows CGI-utilized technology to super-impose his face onto several different movie scenes. The shots range from The Shining, Game of Thrones, Indiana Jones, Pulp Fiction, the list goes on. DUMBFOUNDEAD added a comment to the video stating,
” 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. If you have any experiences or stories about this issue join the discussion at https://www.facebook.com/dumbfoundead/ “
The roles for white-actors as well as black-actors as leading parts have been notably present, but as he points out, Asian-Americans make up 1/4 of our population. I find this discrimination very appalling when I sit and think about the facts the artist points out. Watch the full, very entertaining video for SAFE below via YouTube.
