An anti-Donald Trump, pro-Black Lives Matter protest moved into downtown Cleveland a day before the Republican National Convention. There were only a couple hundred people, and there were more press members than protesters. But it was a sign of things to come at the convention.

 "Donald Trump is galvanizing a racist, very white supremacist aspect of our country," Dhruv Pathak said. 

 "I don't know what his plans are," Tijauna Morris said. "I don't know where he's going. He might be against me today and against you tomorrow. We need stability, accountability. We don't need Donald Trump."
