[MHN Roh Pooleun] CL, Jay Park, Crush, DAY6's Jae, and GOT7's Mark have gone public in support of black rights after the murder of an African American man George Floyd in Minneapolis, Minnesota last week.
This past Monday, a 46-year-old black man named George Floyd died in police custody after an officer handcuffed him and kneeled on his neck.
