It was great to meet with you, @bts_bighit. Thanks for all you’re doing to raise awareness around the rise in anti-Asian hate crimes and discrimination.

President Joe Biden then talked about how June is an important month in America, as there is an emphasis on raising awareness about the hate crimes Asian-Americans are facing.
This is an important month here in America.
A lot of our Asian-American friends have been subject to real discrimination.
Hate only hides. When good people talk about it and say how bad it is, it goes down.
So thank you.
— President Joe Biden

RM thanked the President for taking action and trying to reduce the amount of anti-Asian hate by signing a new act into law.
We want to say thank you, sincerely, for your decision — like such as signing the COVID-19 Hate Crimes Act into law.
So we just want to be a little help and we truly appreciate the White House and the government’s trying to find solutions.
President Joe Biden ended by telling BTS that so many people care about their words, and the influence they have.
People care a lot about what you say, and what you’re doing is good for all people.
It’s not just your great talent, it’s the message you’re communicating.
