More than 1,000 people marched against police violence in Kenosha, Wisconsin, on Saturday.

It was nearly a week since a White police officer there shot Black man Jacob Blake, and Blake's family members took part.

CCTV reporter Liu Xiaoqian spoke to Blake's father about racism in the U.S. today. Jacob Blake Sr. said,“Racism is a system. Systemic racism is real, and exists here.” 

"I want those police officers that were there on the scene fired. I want the one that shot my son in jail for attempted murder,”he added.
