[article] From Stephe’s desk: Is Rain’s “LA Song” racially insentive? No. Was the expanding silhouette a misstep? Yes.

Written by: Stephe, Managing Editor ^@@^

Bctiv8PCIAE5RSnHi there, everyone.

I’ve been pondering the controversy that sprang up concerning the boobs/butt depiction of a Black woman in Rain’s newly released “LA Song” music video for a few days. I wanted to see how far any discord went, and how deeply, before possibly adding any fuel to the fire.

I knew how I felt about it personally from the second I saw it. But like my mama always told me, “Don’t forget, loose lips sink ships. Never hurts to give it a minute.”

Setting the stage a little… My parents are Georgia natives who grew up during the time before Civil Rights, and I was born in the Northwest, descended of African slaves and Native Americans. I’m also of ample proportions (and I do mean ample. I’m a Big Girl). Honestly, my very first reaction when the 1-second expanding boobs/butt depiction flashed on the screen was, LOL! Big Girls represented, not just the skinny-minis, haha! (And I wished my waist was a lot smaller.)

After all, what was the context of the situation there? What were they saying? Rain’s character, a mischievous young vagabond type well known in his neighborhood, arrives and cranks up a party, sees a beautiful girl who immediately attracts his attention and does what men do, quickly sidles up to her and playfully askes, “One, two, three, four… tell me what you got?” And the expanding boobs/butt silhouette was either what “he” wanted OR what “she” told him. A voluptuous lady.

Whether they knew each other or not was left up to our imagination. The way he touched her, how quickly he touched her, and the way she didn’t seem to mind it led me to believe the characters knew each other pretty well already. Haha.

But by the time I got to the end of the video, I thought, Uhhhhh, no bueno. My sistas aren’t going to take that kindly. We’ve been through way too much of being stereotyped. That part should have been left out. *sigh*

To my sistas of color who were offended, you have the right and I feel you. That did hit a little too close to home when it comes to how our body parts have been used to hurt us over the years. To sistas who weren’t offended (they are out there because they’ve been emailing, messaging, and calling to chew the fat—no pun intended), thanks for sharing your thoughts with me. I’ve been offended by a lot out there over the years, but I wasn’t offended by this. But I can’t speak for everyone else, and so for those women who were, I get where you’re coming from.

Do I think Rain is racist or a misogynist? (Someone has actually called him that!) Unequivocally NO. Hell no. There is nothing in his entire 11-year career as an artist and actor or in any of his statements, interviews, or actions to even suggest such a thing, but plenty to indicate the opposite—that he respects women, and embraces and finds great beauty in other cultures. Being a longtime fan is not coloring my opinion in the least. Folks who’ve read this blog for a long time can tell you I have no problem whatsoever with speaking out when something ain’t cool. I’ve been attacked for doing it, in fact, but that doesn’t mean a hill of beans to me because Rain has always said he expects and appreciates fans letting him know how he’s doing and what they think. He doesn’t shy away from criticism that is constructive and meant to help him, and I’m going to do that. Period.

The talk I’ve seen out there about Rain using 5-seconds of video to say it’s okay to attack Black women and force them to sexually bend to an Asian man’s will, and a blogger using rape and misogyny tags, is ludicrous. C’mon, people. Were we even watching the same video? Matter of fact, if Rain was a Black artist, would there have been a reaction at all? Many—not all—of my brothas in several genres have been showing for years in entire videos that I’m a trick, a ho, a b!tch, and that the only thing my big body parts are good for is getting them sprung. And unfortunately that shows no signs of slowing. Ever. So, what’s really bothering the people with flaming pitchforks aimed at Rain, huh?

A character who’s not Black wanting his coffee without cream, perhaps? Yeah, I said it.

(Here’s an interesting blast from the past. Check out minute marker 1:59… Whether there should have been a controversy or not is a matter of personal opinion, but I don’t recall one. Does anybody? *crickets*)

Why is there talk of ulterior motives and the like? Can’t someone simply like a slice of a culture or find beauty in it and try to bring it to life for others to see? Because they like it? You’re damned if you do, and you’re damned if you don’t. Who can win at this game? No one, apparently.

What’s the problem with the dancer in the face paint? Why is it assumed that she is “replicating” what she’s doing, or that she’s a stereotype? There are traditional dancers just like her in real cultures. What’s to say she’s not authentic? Why is she—and other dancers of color in the video—immediately being regarded by people as “props”? Again, I ask, is it because Rain is Asian? Give me a break.

I’m feeling more of a racist tone from viewers rather than from the video, frankly.

1) Is Rain’s “LA Song” video racially insensitive? NO. 2) Was the expanding boobs/butt depiction a misstep? Yes. An unintentional one, in my opinion.

It’s my hope that people who have only recently been introduced to Rain—and veteran fans as well—not let this paint a negative picture of him in their minds without considering their source and thinking for themselves.

Commenters who have already shared their feelings on this subject in other threads on this blog: Thank you. Your comments were very much appreciated, no matter what side of the fence you’re on. Commenters in this thread: No one has to agree, but everyone should treat each other with respect and be constructive, please. There is also a language barrier and online translators to contend with, so please keep that in mind (lost in translation does happen). No trolling, no hate speech, and no demonizing of Rain or any other commenter. We do conversations. We don’t do flame wars. Violators will be plonked before anyone even knows you were here. Trust.

KpopStarz.com posted a thoughtful article last week about “LA Song” that is supportive of Rain incorporating cultural diversity in his projects, but also asks some of the questions that have come to the fore because of the controversy.

— Stephe @cloudusa.wordpress.com / CloudUSA.org

Postscript: It makes total sense that Rain says that Latin Pop was his inspiration. The music video immediately reminded me of some parts of his Road for Rain project that was filmed on location in Cuba some years ago. (Sure enough, Rain has said on his TV reality show’s third episode last week that the setting is in Brazil or Cuba.) The tone of his voice (especially during the chorus) and the video also reminded me of Ricky Martin’s “The Cup of Life”, which became the official song of the 1998 FIFA World Cup soccer championships in France, and sure enough, in one of his promotional interviews for “LA Song”, Rain said, “I made this song which football fans can sing along to cheer their favorite teams during the [upcoming] (Brazil) World Cup.” And in another write-up, he actually mentioned Ricky Martin. Thank goodness. I didn’t think I was crazy… 🙂

I really like this song. And I was thankful when Lumpens released the behind-the-scenes freestyle dance clips from the “LA Song” set, because these clips represent the positive spirit in which the music video was shot in the first place—human beings, no matter how diverse, drawn together by a mutual love of music and dance and just letting go. We sure could use more of that out here in the real world, rather than the steaming piles of negative drivel folks keep shoveling out their real and virtual front doors.

Is The Music Video For Rain’s ‘LA Song’ Racially Insensitive?

rain_la_song-jpg

[Excerpt]

Upon the release of the music video for Rain’s LA Song, international K-Pop fans expressed mixed reactions in regard to the diversity portrayed in the video. While some praised Rain for representing Black and Hispanic populations in the video, others criticized the artist for pervasive stereotypes. As Korean pop expands to greater worldwide audiences, attempts to connect with those audiences often backfire. In the case of LA Song, the issues addressed by audiences are valid, but are widely represented in Hip-Hop, Latin music, and American pop…

  1. I just saw a response to another article about this video where they compared the video to Ludicris Stand Up. Yipes, I really mean Yipes, because I can see a certainly similarity in the video theme. And as that person pointed out, there were more images of Korean women in Bi-Rain’s who were dancing hyper-sexually than black women. In fact the major contrast between the African/Brazilian dancer is although she dancing rhythmically, traditionally, it is no way an overtly sexual dance. The Troubling part about the woman Rain play-kisses is that her dress makes it unclear whether she is a Lady out partying at night, or a Lady of the night. However in Standup not only does Luda “blow up” a young woman by kissing her, but there is a scene where two women are pretending to eat a dino-size chicken leg. As to African people’s chicken preference (how many Korean dog eating jokes do we hear?) I am of the opinion if the worst thing people can think of us is that we eat good and healthy food– Chicken and watermelon are consider healthy–then so be it. As –if they are racist-White (or Korean, or Japanese whomever) people already don’t Want to think well of persons of African descent. Why should I deprive myself of good food? This does not excuse the Chicken commercial and other black face imagery and wog imagery or pro-white supremacist imagery in videos and drama coming out of Asia. Call them on their stupidity and move on. Still maybe we need to listen to critics who have labeled some hip-hop imagery as the new Minstrel show. I would love to hear the thoughts of someone like Lee Michele not only on the image of Women of Color in K-Pop, but ask how the images of of hip-hop and rap videos from the US and UK have affected her. Not only are persons in other nations affected by the negative imagery we allow to reach the world, but so are we.

      It’s awesome to hear someone else say this because it’s the truth — Hip Hop can put that crap out there, but WE have the power in numbers to put a stop to it if only we would. As long as way too many of us purchase that stuff in droves, go to the concerts, tune in to the performances, stream the video, etc., it’s won’t only continue but keep growing out of control. That’s what hurts me most of all — so many of my people just don’t care.

      And not only that — they have the nerve to justify it.

      • We’re all guilty; we get caught up in the beat and don’t listen to lyrics and excuse imagery we know darn well is unacceptable. I’ve seen those discussions where women of color are accused of having no no love for hip hop. Wrong. I have loved Rap since the Lost Poets, but then Men called us Sister Girl and Sister woman and Queen. I have no love of imagery telling my daughter or granddaughters nor my grandsons that women are little more than erotic rubbing posts. — JT in imitation has a “get out a$$your seat, Ho” , line in song. Hip Hop needs to love her mothers and sisters. And women have to stand bold in counteracting, not Hip hop– but the double standards and negative imagery. I’m past sixty, but I’m no prude, I loved the naughty Prince and sensuality has a place in music, but there is a different in mindless ‘bend her over the table- hump imagery, and loving imagery that celebrates the powerful feminine. Does that excuse insensitivity from K-pop artist. No, I don’t buy the “They don’t understand”, because I know the anger of the Asian community at how Asian women are portrayed in Western Drama. And the men don’t fare too well either.

        • True, there are parts of the Hip Hop genre that don’t degrade and that are all about the positive. Thank God for those parts and for those artists. To me, back during the birth of Rap and Hip Hop and as they were experiencing their growing pains was the BEST time to experience it. I really miss those times.

          I’m not a prude either (I’m 53), far from it, but there are lines as wide as a locomotive between “keeping it real”, “just having fun”, and degradation. An artist actually had the nerve to use the excuse that there actually ARE tricks and hos. The problem is, as far as the world is concerned when they see your &%#!, you’re calling ALL of us those names, not just Bootilly down the block. And the world ends up believing it. *sigh* Ugh.

          I also ran across an article about an Asian activist and his group overseas who has been fighting against and bringing awareness to the issue of debasing other races (including Blacks) in print and on broadcasts since the 1960s. He started in Japan and branched out from there. That was some food for thought.

          • I will try to find a video copy, but performer JYP confronted the problem of color based discrimination while on Korean television. I know Actor Will Smith and Jada Smith have reached out to American music community about the images of Americans of Color transmit to Africa and Asia through film and music and have asked their fellow artist to consider the kind of messages we are sending. It is very different from the days when Asia and Africa saw Americans of color reflected in the likes of Malcolm X, Doctor King, Maya Angelou, even Diana Ross (Helped lead protest in England by simply refusing to perform on stage where the BBC filmed the notorious Black and White Minstrel show in the 1970s for heaven sakes!) and other activist and entertainers. It has changed even from Tupac, Public Enemy, or Guru. You can see Guru’s influence or the influence of early jazz based hip-hop and rap in Asian artist like Simon D and Zion T. And there are a group of Korean Hip-hop/rap artist with dual citizenship who have influenced artist like Bumbkey. Although their videos reflect the music they are distinctly Korean in imagery. I am more a fan of these groups than Wave/K-Pop, although I need my TVXQ fix now and then, even though their early Choosey Lover video sent a clear hands off message to the young woman of color in the video–then again as the all male members of the group ended up with each other, the message about women period was ambiguous at best. As with the dramas, I prefer the ones where there are homogenous–all Korean, but not if it means denying a a segment of their society exist. And you have to wonder why Men and women of color agree to appear in these videos or if they are allowed thee full script? As many of the darker complexion Korean Nationals can trace ancestry back to the US, I don’t think our interest is “out of line” as some Korean’s seem to think. However, freedom of expression and freedom to defame as you noted about sexual imagery are two very different things.

  2. No one has talked about the final image in the video, which was the image I knew most of my granddaughters would identify with: we see an apparently very shy, modest looking young black woman, who seems quite frankly out of place in the rowdy crowd and awkward in front of the camera. I had wondered how people reacted to her but no one has mentioned her. I saw the Brazilian/African dancer as more representative of the Carnival feel, but yeah, that blow-up breast and bottom image was wrong for all the reasons it is “wrong” in Hip-hop videos. And it did make Rain look as predatory as other hip hop artist. And it would be nice to see a more respectful image of Black women in world videos. I’ve become addicted to music from Brazil and Angola–check out Ricky-boy and Djodje http://youtu.be/Qa9tb_iY7vs. My suggestion, if you want to see authentic but respectful images of African women, might want to start with how African men and persons in the African/Black Diaspora represent us.

      I did notice that final young black woman in the MV, and I remember wishing at the time that the director had shown more of her. That little glimpse wasn’t enough for me because she represented another unique piece in that whole diverse puzzle.

  3. Oh Stephe… Thanks so much for once again saying what I was thinking.

    When I first saw this video and that specific part, my first thought was laughter and shock and THEN I thought “Oh Lord… some people are going to be offended”. I wished he hadn’t included that part because I knew it would be a problem for many. There are always people willing to jump on the racism bandwagon (myself included at one point with G-Dragon lol… but with more cause imho) but I personally think that wasn’t his intention. I’m also not saying that from a fangirl standpoint because, to be honest, while I still love me some Rain, I don’t love him with quite the fervor that I used to. Some other people have come along to temper that burning passion lol.

    Anyway, I digress… While Rain might not have meant it that way, he can always use someone with a critical eye to let him know that that wasn’t particularly kosher. The rest of the video I loved, btw. I thought it was fun and that all the dancing was an homage and a celebration of all cultures, not appropriation. I am quite sure that Rain loves African and Latin dance and music and wants to share that love with us.

    Smh at anyone that tries to say otherwise. :stern face:

  4. I fully understand the sensitivity of every ladies, but …
    In my opinion, since people live on Earth, at first glance EVERY MAN interested in two things in EVERY WOMAN regardless their skin color, race, age or nationality: their breasts and butts. It is simply natural. This clip is about sexuality and its visual display of it is simply honest. This is not the stereotype of the Black Women, since it is not about the women at all. It is about the men! The mentioned image is the visualization of the male sexual sentiments and it is not being tied to any human race. Since the director could not place every women (or at least one woman from every continent in order to avoid the objections) onto the bench, he chose the female star of the music video – and happen to be she is a beautiful Black Lady so logically she became the subject of the image. If an European beauty ideal which is a bon-skin lady would be the female star of the clip then she would become spherical. As a European woman I would not oppose this situation 🙂
    By the way: Rain is in love with the American black culture since he knows his mind. Everybody knows that amongst his first inspirations there was MJ and r’n’b, soul, hip hop etc. We do not look for enemy where it is none. 🙂

      “….my thing is don’t a lot of Korean’s watch Rap vids at all and get the wrong message also…”

      Yes, that is also the main reason why some (certainly not all) Black women took issue with the silhouette scene in LA Song. It’s because people from other cultures have a tendency to take ONLY what they see from rap/hip-hop videos and other forms of stereotypical laden propaganda and absorb that as the general rule as to what Black culture in the West is like as a whole. Which is far from All that we are as a community. Black people are So Many things, but we seem to be seen as only 1 or 2 things in the eyes of other cultures throughout the world. The reason for this is due to things like rap videos and sports ads and just limited exposure to Black people in general. If you don’t really know someone’s culture fully which includes their history, then you can’t really know what may or may not be deemed offensive. Personally, I look forward to the day when discussions like this will no longer be necessary.

Now, when I watched the video I felt the good vibes, the happiness of people of different cultures coming together, enjoying good music and dancing. I felt that Rain’s message in the video was enjoy life, don’t take it too seriously and have a good laugh. When I watched that part, were he “kisses” the black girl, yes cause you don’t see the actual kiss and she suddenly got big boobs and booty, to me it was hilarious! If you know Rain, the guy always do some comedy stunt in his videos so to me it was just that. Later, when I thought about it, I think Rain intended to send a message to Korea, that they should open up to people of all countries, that he likes women with curves and music is his way of getting people of all countries together. That’s what I thought and of course that he looks more handsome than ever! 😀

  8. I find nothing wrong with the video . All the negative talk is bs .. the big booty and boobs may be a minor insult. Please forgive me for saying this but,I was shocked to see it and I thought it was sexy . I agree I feel that is not what was intended to insult others. Sense having kids I gained weight and I work out. And even I for a second thought wow i want a body like that. Even so you only saw for a short time. He just wanted to add some Diversity in a fun positive way. I doubt he was really focusing on how big the boobs and butt are. The free style video proves that it does not matter what ethnic and culture you come from people of all races can come together. I like the video, and the song. He is not being racist. I get dirty looks and I’m sure I’m talked about because my son and daughter have other than white in thier blood . They are not fully Caucasian. So ya to all the racist people I say what ever, mind your own business if you don’t like it . Don’t insult others like that . It really is rude. Or I just ignore them . The point is sure the big boobs and big butt is a eye catcher but why let something like be such a big deal. It is really trival of those who insult him. And I think diversity is good thing is used positively.

He always says, just let them be, the truth will out. I wouldn’t have even posted on the subject myself because the subject was more like a simmering pot than a bunch of craziness, and it seemed capable of just dying down by itself, but then people (not Black women, just groups of haters) still wouldn’t let it die, and so I wasn’t going to let him be mauled without speaking up. And there needed to be a safe place here where y’all, no matter how you felt, could talk if you wanted to.

  10. Stephe…..Sunbae…..thank you, thank you, thank you. You have put commentary to what I was feeling and have tried to express SO eloquently. As you’ve stated, some of us have already left comments about how we feel on other threads for LA Song. I will say again, when I first saw the video the cultural DIVERSITY absolutely blew me away. I LOVED that straight up. When he stepped to the sista on the bench, I was even more like surprised but in a jubilant way. Then came the “boobs/butt” scene.

    As I stated before and reiterate now, my INITIAL reaction was “ouch” it did sting a bit. I am 40 plus (*heavy on the plus*) years old and it did make me squirm for a minute. Then the rational side to me took over and I revisited my feelings. When, I looked at the video again I realized more and more that the BIGGER PICTURE is the embracing of the diverse cultures represented in the video……hands down. Also, as you said the “silhouette scene” was more so his character being a “red-blooded male” and goodness knows they come in all colors, just as beautiful girls do. I also had to admit that because I AM of a certain age, what affects my sensibilities may not phase someone who is younger. However, I feel that is commentary for a different day on a whole other level.

    As I stated at The Cloud fan site in the letter section, I wholeheartedly and unequivocally believe that the true issue, the REAL ISSUE that Korean netizens are up in arms about is Not what may be deemed a negative, stereotypical depiction of Black women….NO, that’s not it at all. Korean netizens are up in arms because Rain, their beloved had the “nerve”, the unmitigated gall to simulate a kiss WITH a Black woman. That is the Real issue at hand. Yes, I said it as well. I also say this, Koreans have courted the WORLD STAGE and now they have the floor. You’ve knocked at door, you’ve been let in and now that you’ve been let in you insult the host. In other words, The World has accepted K-Pop and the country that it hails from, so now Korea has a Duty to take a DEEPER LOOK at itself and its attitudes toward people of other races and cultures. As a Black American, I just want to say to Koreans that we are diverse even within our own culture, we are more than the images you see in rap videos and Nike ads. You will find more Blacks in the west who live and look like the Obamas.

    I will say one more thing to those Koreans who took offense to Rain “kissing” a Black woman in the video. If “I”, a Black woman, can find Rain an Asian man attractive, is it that much of a stretch to believe that an Asian male can find a Black woman or a woman of ANY nationality other than Asian attractive? I think not. It’s time that Korea comes out of its age old views on race and color and quit using inaccurate depictions of a people as a point of reference for what a whole culture may be like. There was nothing in that video that Korean people should have taken umbrage to. If anything, your countryman should be applauded for his FORWARD thinking and his OPEN and INCLUSIVE mind.

    Love you Rain!! Keep pressing forward Honey Love.
