Racism against people with Asian backgrounds must stop. Thats what American President Joe Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris said in a speech.

A lot of people are shocked by what happened. They go out to the streets to protest. The unsub said it had nothing to do with racism. But according to many Asian Americans, they are increasingly confronted with violence.
