Day Above Ground and On-Stage Stands: Remove "Asian Girlz" Video, Publicly Apologize, and DROP SPONSORSHIP OF THE BAND!

    1. Petition by

      AF3IRM (Association of Filipinas, Feminists Fighting Imperialism, Re-feudalization & Marginalization)

PLEASE SIGN THE PETITION! The band Day Above Ground recently published an extremely racist, sexist music video entitled "Asian Girlz." The video has not been removed from YouTube and other outlets (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Y0zlkB-s_Vk&feature=player_embedded). 

The video, with its degrading lyrics, hyper-sexualizes Asian and Asian-American women and uses racist epithets throughout its lyrics. This video also promotes sexual violence with its lyrics and even alludes to sex with minors 

 

"And you age so well

I can barely tell

17 or 23? 

Baby doesn’t matter to me"

 

The video must be removed immediately and sponsorship of this band by other companies and corporations, including future sponsorships, must be terminated.

To:
Joe Anselm, Day Above Ground
DROP SPONSORSHIP AND DO NOT HOST THE BAND 'DAY ABOVE GROUND' AT YOUR RESPECTIVE VENUES. REMOVE THE VIDEO "ASIAN GIRLZ" from all media outlets! We are asking that you drop any support and sponsorship of the band Day Above Ground! They recently premiered their extremely sexist, racist video "Asian Girlz," which has not been removed.

Sincerely,
[Your name]

      It's offending to the Asian race and not only that but it's degrading to the female kind along with being way too sexual.

      It promotes racism and oppression of Asian Women.
