All the prejudices, racial discrimination, colorism should stop with immediate effect. Let's stop this!!!!"


In Korean, Sam Okyere wrote,


"Watching such scene on TV is upsetting and annoying. I hope it never appears on a broadcast again. We have to get rid of all discrimination on race!!!! I appreciate everyone who is giving support. We can do it together!! Thank you.


The color of our skin may be different but the color of our blood is the same. Let's all fighting!"
