racial discrimination

K-pop stars BTS share racial discrimination they faced

"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 in English," said the band in a statement posted on Twitter Tuesday.

"We cannot put into words the pain of becoming the subject of hatred and violence for such a reason."

Anti-Asian attacks have increased dramatically across the United States during the Covid-19 pandemic.
