Korean Popular Music fights Racism on Social Media
K-pop artists and fans are doing their share to support protesters behind the Black Lives Matter movement to fight against discriminating voices in social media undermining or insulting the vindicating efforts against abuses of power against blacks. How? Using discriminating hashtags such as WhiteLivesMatter to vanish negative or racist comments in a sea of k-pop videos, memes, and fan cams.
This is proof of how pop culture can use its popularity for a positive cause.
