Kenosha becomes center of nationwide protests after police shoot Black man in front of his children

“If we don’t have the systematic reform that this moment in America is crying out for, then we are going to continue to see hashtag after hashtag, protest after protest, and cities burning all across America,” Crump said.Several businesses were burning late Monday in Kenosha, and Wisconsin Gov. Tony Evers called in the National Guard to help “protect critical infrastructure, such as utilities and fire stations and to ensure Kenoshians are able to assemble safely,” he said.Protesters also marched in New York City, Washington DC and Minneapolis, where at least five people were arrested.”We will continue showing up until they’re tired of killing us,” a Manhattan protester told CNN affiliate WLNY.
