Protesters demonstrate outside the burning 3rd Precinct police building in Minneapolis on Thursday. Protests over the death of George Floyd, a black man who died in police custody Monday, broke out in Minneapolis for a third straight night.

There have been several high-profile stories recently involving African-Americans who have been killed — George Floyd, Ahmaud Arbery and Breonna Taylor — or caught up in racist incidents such as the birdwatcher in Central Park or the man police in Texas held at gunpoint for allegedly running a stop sign. These incidents have sparked widespread protests across the nation as Americans express their grief and anger.
