A white man wearing blackface angered protesters near the White House on the night of August 27-28, in the hours after President Donald Trump gave his Republican National Convention speech.
Footage shows a man with dark colouring on his face being called “racist” by protesters as police work to separate him from demonstrators.
A black man is then heard saying “that’s blackface” before hitting the man across the face, sparking a police chase.
Protesters were also out that night in opposition to US President Donald Trump’s Republic National Convention that was being held at the White House. Credit: Brendan Gutenschwager via Storyful
