In the first of a three-part series - Divided States of America - ITV News profiles different communities in the United States, who feel angry and excluded in their own country.
We start in the city of Fayetteville in North Carolina, where half of the population is black. Against the backdrop of the shootings in Baton Rouge and Dallas, there are fears America could be sliding back to the days of deep racial divisions.
We spoke to three residents in the city:
- Rakeem Jones
Rakeem was punched at a Trump rally in Fayetteville in March this year.
He was there out of pure interest – not as a protester.
He was randomly attacked by 78-year-old John McGraw, who has been arrested and charged.
Rakeem’s community didn’t care about politics until the incident at the Trump rally.
- Ann Mathis, community worker - wife of the 'Bicycle Man’
Ann's late husband Moses Mathis was known as the 'Bicycle Man' as he fixed up bicycles around the community and gave them back to kids.
He was honoured by George W. Bush with the President’s Call to Service Award. Ann continues his work.
She is distrustful of Donald Trump.
- Pastor Larry Wright, senior pastor of Heal the Land Outreach Ministries
Pastor Larry Wright has lived in Fayetteville for 37 years and is a retired military veteran with over 20 years of active service.
He has an outstanding record of public service in Fayetteville, with the aim to try to unite the area.
