Unlike Cuba, in a country like the United States people can make big protests when they feel dissatisfied with something, these protests have happened for many years for different reasons, but in 2020, two parallel plagues hit the United States: the coronavirus and the deaths of black men and women at the hands of the police. Even with the risk of contracting the virus, this left chaotic protests for the death of George Floyd and the murders of African-Americans by police that flooded Minneapolis, New York and other cities across the country. By then, the virus had killed more than100,000 peoples across the country and millions of jobs had been lost to it.
