Dumbfoundead responds to Hollywood whitewashing and pointed misrepresentation of minorities in the video for 'SAFE'. The LA rapper and actor addresses a common complaint that has been attached to most award ceremonies in the past year. Using facial recognition technology he challenges our perception by self starring in an array of popular Hollywood films. The rapper comically proves the unquestioned dominance of whiteness in media while also challenging the common stereotype of docility attached to Asian people.
