The official and verified Instagram account of Pearl Jam has posted a new photo today and sent a public message after the ongoing hate about the Asian people and stated that the thing that makes us better is being a diverse country at all.
As you may already know, some of the states of America have been protesting the hate against Asian people for days. Hundreds of American has been gathered near the Georgia Capitol to ask justice for the victims of recent shootings and to denounce racism and over 300 people have walked in New Yor City to show their support for the Asian people and said ‘We Are Better Than This.’
Today, Pearl Jam has joined the movement and stated that all Americans have to spot Asian hate and discrimination. They have also shared the words of Mike McCready by tagging him in the caption and putting a ‘StopAAAPIHate’ hashtag on the post.
Here is what’s written in the caption:
“Things we never thought would need to be said out loud. I tend to be quiet about my hobbies and passions outside of music but in light of the growing violence against Asian American communities, I want to share about two people who have changed my life.
Anger and hate towards a group of people are dangerous and wrong – we have an amazing, diverse country that makes all of us better. We need to each do our part to Stop Asian Hate and #StopAAPIHate.” – Mike McCready.
