Jin continued in Korean, “Today is that the Doomsday of AANHPI Heritage Month. We are here at the White House today to square along with the AANHPI community and to commemorate the occasion.”
Jimin went on, “We were shocked and devastated by the recent surge in hate crimes against Asians. within the hopes of helping to place a stop to those types of crimes, we’d prefer to take this chance to use our voices to talk up.”
J-Hope added, “We believe the sole reason we were ready to come here today is due to our fans who love our music—ARMY—who have many various nationalities, cultures, and languages. We are truly grateful.”
Jungkook remarked, “I still find it amazing that music made by Korean artists can transcend language and culture to achieve numerous different people everywhere on the planet. I feel music may be a truly great medium for having the ability to bring us all at once.”
Suga chimed in, “Just because something is different from me doesn’t mean that it’s wrong. I feel that equality begins with embracing our differences, rather than thinking of them in terms of right and wrong.”
Finally, V commented, “We each have our own history. I hope today will be another step towards respecting each other and acknowledging that every and each one in every one of us may be a valuable person.”
RM then concluded in English, “Lastly, we thank President Biden and therefore the White House for giving us this important opportunity to talk about important causes and remind ourselves of what we will do as artists. Once again, many thanks greatly.”
