But change needs to happen and, at the moment, this seems like the only way to make it happen.

Remarkably, however, they seem to be working.

Thanks to these riots, the Black Lives Matter movement is dominating global headlines, and it has completely taken over social media.

It has also taken over our streets...

For instance, a group of people painted large yellow letters saying "Black Lives Matter" down two blocks of 16th Street in D.C - a two-lane road that coincidentally leads to the White House.

Protests have been happening across the pond too...

And people are continuing to demand justice.

One of the most recent events is the tearing down of statues of slave traders and other controversial figures by protesters.

Across the pond in the UK, a video went viral of protesters tearing down a statue of 17th Century slave trader Edward Colston and tossing it into a nearby river.

Colston was a slave trader.

Colston was Conservative MP for Bristol following his tenure as deputy governor of the Royal African Company. He is thought to have trafficked as many as 84,000 African men, women, and children, with an estimated 19,000 dying on their journey to the Caribbean and America.

A statue of Christopher Columbus in Virginia was another of those torn down and defaced.

The statue was ninety-three years old and had been standing there to commemorate the Italian explorer.

Controversy has surrounded Columbus' name for many years now...

His transatlantic voyages unlocked an entire continent for European colonization and turned the Italian explorer into a modern symbol of conquest and violence for native Americans.

It didn't take long for the protesters to completely dislodge the statue...

And this is when things turned ugly.

The statue was set on fire and covered in graffiti...

And protesters then dumped it in Richmond's Fountain lake as a final demand for justice.

Then another Columbus statue was torn down.

This time in Baltimore where his statue was torn down by several protesters furious that the statue has been left to stand.

Then what did they do?

Similar to Colston, Columbus was taken for an involuntary dip - as protesters dumped him in the local harbor.

Trump isn't happy.

And in the past he's claimed that he wants anyone who topples a statue to be arrested and charged.

And there's now been another Christopher Columbus taken down.

But, this time it was removed after Mayor Lightfoot ordered its removal following violent protests.

The Christopher Columbus statue in Chicago's Grant Park was taken down in the darkness this morning after protests of violence that led to the deployment of federal forces in the city.

The removal took place just hours after Mayor Lori Lightfoot had authorized it.

Crews who attended the park used a large crane to hoist the statue from its spot.

The statue had already been wrapped in plastic prior to protect it from vandalism.

As the statue was removed it had a small crowd cheering it on.

Along with cars honking as it was brought to the ground.

In came down in the darkness at around 3am in the morning with very few people around.

Once placed on the back of a truck it was driven away, although it is not known where too.

The authorization of the removal of the statue by Lightfoot came after she had previously opposed it.

And although there were many cheers at the removal, others were not happy with it.

Chicago's Fraternal Order of Police president John Catanzara described Lightfoot as a 'coward'.

Whilst The Daily Mail reported that Steve Cortes, spokesman for pro-Trump Super PAC America First, called the mayor 'feckless' and accused her of giving in to "violent nihilists."

Unfortunately, actions will never please everyone.
