Kenneth Frazier, CEO of the pharmaceutical company Merck & Co., spoke to CNBC Monday morning about the death of George Floyd.
"What the African American community sees in that videotape is that this African American man, who could be me or any other African American man, is being treated as less than human," he told the outlet.
