The white pro-Trump and black power militias arming up before the US election

This summer of rage and anti-racist protest across the country isn’t just a rallying cry for marchers against police brutality and the Trump government.

It’s been a call to arms for militia groups across the nation. Some of those groups have already been parading in the streets of America’s city, fully armed – including on the far right, a group called the Three Percenters – and the country’s biggest black militia, the NFAC.

I’ve been meeting both groups, including an exclusive interview with the NFAC’s founder, Grandmaster Jay.
