Apl.de.ap of Black Eyed Peas who headlined the SEA Games hosting of the Philippines recalled how the anti-Asian sentiment surged in the wake of Covid.
“This was a campaign from NYC last November to bring awareness to the hate Asians have been receiving in the wake of COVID. Now seems as important a time as any to remind ourselves that we’re all in this together. I’m truly sorry for the families of those involved.”

“And it is up to that very majority to show our strength, defiance, and resilience against these monsters. They are a dying breed of scarred, confused, and angry people. And we have to make them understand there is no place for hatred in any world that seeks peace. #StopAsianHate”
And moreover I truly believe to my core that these monsters throughout our nation certainly do NOT represent America. They are a tragic byproduct of the absolute worst of our history, but small in comparison to the overwhelming majority of decent, compassionate, rational people.
