The Black Lives Matter movement has the support of K-pop group BTS and their legion of fans.
The record-breaking K-pop group — Jin, Suga, J-Hope, RM, Jimin, V, and Jungkook — shared words of encouragement for the movement with their 26.2 million Twitter followers.
우리는 인종차별에 반대합니다.
우리는 폭력에 반대합니다.
나, 당신, 우리 모두는 존중받을 권리가 있습니다. 함께 하겠습니다.
We stand against racial discrimination.
We condemn violence.
You, I and we all have the right to be respected. We will stand together.#BlackLivesMatter

Y'all BTS is speaking with a PLATFORM for the 2020 graduation — the same event with the Obamas & Beyonce'. They will, as always, say the right thing at the right time. They are not US citizens but we KNOW where they stand. Show your FAITH in them. They have NEVER let us down.
