The May 25 death of George Floyd - who had been accused of trying to buy cigarettes with a counterfeit bill - has ignited protests across the United States over systemic racism and police brutality.
Black lives, whether under the knee of a killer cop or at the mercy of a racist health system, are under attack.
Thousands of demonstrators defiantly remained on the streets across the US even after curfews put in place in some states following unrest in the wake of the police killing of unarmed black man George Floyd in Minneapolis.
Floyd family attorney Ben Crump called for the third-degree murder charge against Officer Derek Chauvin to be upgraded to first-degree murder and for three other officers to be charged.
The president and some of his top advisors have blamed Antifa and groups they call "far-left extremists" for hijacking peaceful protests against police abuses after a black man's death in Minneapolis.
