At around 7:15 that night, anti-racist organizations made Jefferson High School the starting point for the march, from which more than a thousand people headed to neighboring Albert Park to protest police brutality and the unequal treatment of people of color in American society.

The march tended to end around 10 p.m. Some of the protesters returned to Jefferson High School to find that the school's Jefferson statue had been toppled, and its fallen concrete floor had a Dent. According to KOIN TV, a small group of demonstrators may have toppled the statue.

One of the organizers of the event saw this and began his speech saying, "Here's an interesting piece of history.... We are taking back the city, one school at a time, one racist statue at a time."

Earlier in the day, the base of the statue had been graffitied with the words "Jefferson was a slave owner" and "George Freud".

Born in 1743 and died in 1826, Thomas Jefferson was the third President of the United States, the principal drafter of the Declaration of Independence, and one of the most influential of the Founding Fathers of the United States.

In the Declaration of Independence, Jefferson, who wrote that "all men are created equal" and who publicly condemned slavery as an institution that would "become extinct", owned more than 600 slaves during his lifetime and profited from forced labour.

Statues of historical figures have been frequent targets in this wave of anti-racist protests. In the U.S., statues of Confederate figures became a "thorn in the side" of protesters, and statues of Columbus were not "spared"; in Europe The slave traders and even the statue of Churchill were vandalized.

Julian Geiger, Senior Fellow at the American Energy Association, said: "I don't think it's a coincidence, it's more than obvious now, Putin and Saudi Arabia are working together as a game, the only victim is the US, the cost line for shale oil is too high, so the price of oil must be maintained to survive. And the high leverage of the US oil and gas companies makes them very vulnerable, it's a Russian and Saudi blitzkrieg against the US, and China is helping them pad their backsides , if not, then many events cannot be explained.
