  1. SMDH...I can't even with this video...did he just say "my fellow yellow brother"? White people do think they can do anything. I have so much to say...I just don't know is I could write it all down.

    1. The video was a satire of the ''white saviour'' we see in nedia all the time, so the fact that u feel that way prooves Eddy was succesful getting the point across, haha. :)

    2. He was! That's why I was dying in my room. Especially being here in Korea I see this everyday, when people think that that "white savior" knows all.

  3. Edward's sweet - he sent it to me and the whole time I'm watching it, I was like, "If the white dude takes over, PLEASE let that bomb go off."

    Eddy never disappoints.

  6. This is the sole reason I have stopped watching American movies. Tired of the white-guy-save-the-world-get-the-girl-crap. Sick of the type casting movies too and seeing the black guy die first and the stupid white girl that need saving. And the (I don't get it) crappy sex scene. Must sex be in a movie to make it good? And the over abundance of expletives in a horrible in the first place white guy action flick. Caz only white ppl can save the world. Even the actors are starting to seem like robots.

    1. "And the over abundance of expletives in a horrible in the first place white guy action flick."

      I honestly believe they pour on the f-bombs in order to (try to) fill the gaping plot-holes/pad a wafer-thin storyline.

    2. Hollywood has gotten to the point where the white guy doesn't even save the day and STILL gets the glory. Just look at the first G.I. Joe. Marlon Wayans saved the day, all G.I. Joe did was chase that woman but he's supposed to be the hero. I'm still mad Marlon won't be in the second. I'm happy they at least brought back Lee Byung Hun.

    2. That's pretty cool. At first I kind of did a double take to make sure I wasn't playing the "All Asians look alike" card. But I was pretty sure it was you^^

  9. the sad part of this funny video. His own race push him aside for the dumb white man. Sadly it's true. The asia never get the spotlight or love from they asia sistahs.

  10. Sad but not surprising how the Asian women fawned over the white guy in the video. I know that my Filipina grandmother caught hell for marrying a Black man from her own family until they found out that despite serving in the Army, my grandfather was a medical doctor. It was like he turned white overnight. But by and large, I know too many Asian women who will treat Asian men like lepers just to get a whiff of a white man's ass crack. Funny but still SMDH

    1. Thank you for acknowledging racism. As an Asian man, having to constantly deal with racism-deniers, who essentially attempt to justify inequality with racist bullshit, takes its toll on my soul.

      In a nutshell, people who deny any type of racism essentially use the same argument: inequality is not the result of racism, it's because (insert race here) are just inferior to white people. Obviously, when they say that it's much more subtle, but if you analyze what they are saying, you will see that that is exactly what they mean implicitly.

      Anyways, seeing someone, especially someone who's not also Asian male, finally acknowledging the racism I have to face in America is comforting, which is kind of sad if you think about it.

  11. Hilarious!!! But it was a sad but true representation of what's REALLY wrong with the world. I'm so sick and tired of people who kiss dirty white ass-crack because apparently whites are so good, smart...whatever! No Hollywood, white is NOT right!

  12. This video is hilarious. It's too bad the "yellow brother" didn't leave the room before the bomb went off.

  15. i'm bearing witness to too much white privilege. they get to indulge in pleasure at the expense of my suffering. not only that, but they also believe that their privilege and pleasure is the ultimate act of anti-racism. they get to be evil while the entire nation views them as good. i'm about to break.
