Protests have been held in at least 20 US cities, calling for the ouster of President Donald Trump two months before the presidential elections.
In other countries today would likely be called a "day of rage". Words like "hate" and "regime" indicate how very discredited Trump is among many Americans, and yet Trump has narrowed the electoral college polls to make the race nearly a toss-up.
Even without a coronavirus pandemic, a great lockdown and an economic collapse, Trumpís re-election bid was sure to be highly contentious.
It appears that half the country wants to blame Trump for all of Americaís many enormous problems, even the longstanding structural issues, but many activists wonder if that extreme approach could cause yet another election to slip away for the Democrats.
Trump just announced a surprising end to racial sensitivity training for federal employees.
Many now believe he wants the final stretch of the campaign to focus on divisive identity politics and a zero-tolerance policy for the protests and violent rebellions that have become a near-nightly occurrence.
Regardless, this year has seen Black Lives Matter become the most popular social movement in 50 years.
Democratic candidate Joe Biden has sequestered himself for months over fears of coronavirus.
Analysts wonder if Bidenís plan to ride the intense anti-Trump sentiment will be enough to land him in the White House during this stunning era of American upheaval.
