The killing of George Floyd has reignited pent up anger towards racism and police brutality in the United States.
Since his death in Minneapolis more than a week ago, there have been nationwide, mainly peaceful protests.
People defied curfews in more than 140 cities to demand justice for Floyd and other black Americans who’ve died at the hands of police.

Presumptive Democratic nominee, former Vice President Joe Biden, says Trump is making the country even more divided.
So, is there enough momentum to change laws and attitudes in a polarised election year?
