“We send our deepest condolences to those who have lost their loved ones. We feel grief and anger. We recall moments when we faced discrimination as Asians. We have endured expletives without reason and were mocked for the way we look. We were even asked why Asians spoke English. We cannot put into words the pain of becoming the subject of hatred and violence for such reason. Our own experiences are inconsequential compared to the events that have occurred over the past few weeks. But these experiences were enough to make us feel powerless and chip away our self-esteem. What is happening right now cannot be dissociated from our identity as Asians. It required considerable time for us to discuss this carefully and we contemplated deeply on how we should voice our message. But what our voice must convey is clear. We stand against racial discrimination. We condemn violence. You, I and we have the right to be respected. We will stand together” _BTS

According to CNN, President Joe Biden signed into law on Thursday a bill that is aimed at countering a rise in Anti-Asian hate crimes during the coronavirus pandemic, saying the legislation is part of the nation’s first step toward unity. “We heard about the pain, their fear, anger, and all that existed in the community, feelings.
