A2: While it is difficult to assess with fidelity the identity or ideology of many of the looters, my conversations with law enforcement and intelligence officials in multiple U. The vast majority of looting appeared to come from local opportunists with no affiliation and no political objectives.
Most were common criminals. Still, there was some evidence of organized activity by left-wing and right-wing extremists, including from individuals that traveled from other states.
John Miller, the deputy commissioner of intelligence and counterterrorism at the New York Police Department, warned that a small, fringe network of extremists organized violence in New York City.
To add to the confusion, there was significant disinformation and a proliferation of fake accounts on social media platforms. For example, Twitter shut down several accounts that it said were operated by a white supremacist group called Identity Evropa, which was posing as Antifa. We took action after the account sent a Tweet inciting violence and broke the Twitter Rules.
A3: The threat from Antifa and other far-left networks is relatively small in the United States. The far-left includes a decentralized mix of actors. Anarchists, for example, are fundamentally opposed to the government and capitalism, and they have organized plots and attacks against government, capitalist, and globalization targets.

From the end of the War of until the Civil War, modern scholars have had little reliable data regarding the number of black men in the naval service. A fortunate discovery of a remarkable letter from Commodore Lewis Warrington dated 17 September gives a better picture of the recruitment of African Americans during this period.
Commodore Warrington was a vocal critic of black recruitment, writing "I deem it proper to represent to you what is a considered a great inconvenience if not an evil; and that is the number of negroes which are entered at various places for the general Service"  Nonetheless Warrington to make his case that too many blacks were already in the naval service forwarded to the Secretary of the Navy a memorandum enumerating the number of black seamen recruited over a one year period at five naval recruiting stations.
Unlike the U. Army, the U. Navy was integrated during the Civil War. During the s, federal regulations limited black sailors to 5 percent of the enlisted force, but during the American Civil War black participation grew to 20 per cent of the Union navy's total enlisted force, nearly double the percentage that served in the Army.
Almost eighteen thousand men of African descent, and eleven women, served in the U. Navy during the Civil War. The ranking and status of black crew members depended on whether they had come on board as free or formerly enslaved, with the latter classified as "Boys" and given lower pay and rating.
On Navy ships, black sailors frequently worked as mess attendants, firemen, or coal passers, who hauled massive quantities of coal to fuel the ships. They were also promoted to petty officers.
Navy ships continued to be integrated. The only black sailors in uniform during that period were the ones aboard in who were allowed to stay to retire. In Blacks were allowed to serve on US Navy ships as stewards and mess attendants. In June the Navy had 4, African-American personnel, representing 2. All of these African Americans were enlisted men, and with the exception of six regular-rated seamen, all were steward's mates.
They were characterized by the black press as "seagoing bellhops. In , 11 surviving crew members were all given belated recognition and letters of commendation from Navy Secretary John Dalton for having braved harsh weather and quickly welding the cracks in their ship so they could continue escorting support ships to England.
The Navy did not allow women of color until January 25, She was the first of only four African American women to serve in the navy during WW2.
Publicity surrounding the Port Chicago disaster on July 17, and the ensuing mutiny convictions of 50 black sailors spotlighted racism in the Navy and was a major impetus for Circular Order ,  published on February 27, , which desegregated the Navy. Even so, there were just two regular CBs that were segregated units, the 34th  and 80th  NCBs.
Both had white Southern officers and black enlisted. Both battalions experienced problems with that arrangement that led to the replacement of the officers. The Navy had a huge need for cargo handlers. On 18 September authorization was granted for the formation of a different type of CB denoted by the tag "Special" for cargo handling. Those Special CBs later became the first fully integrated units in the U. Of particular note were the actions of the 17th Special at Peleliu 15—18 September On D-day the 7th Marines were in a situation where they did not have enough men to man the lines and get the wounded to safety.
Coming to their aid were the 2 companies of the 16 Marine Field Depot segregated and the 17th Special Seabee segregated. The Japanese mounted a counter-attack at hours on D-day night. By the time it was over nearly the entire 17th had volunteered to hump ammunition , to the front lines on the stretchers they brought the wounded back on. They volunteered to man the line where the wounded had been, man 37mm that had lost their crews and volunteered for anything dangerous.
The 17th remained with the 7th Marines until the right flank had been secured D-plus 3. Navy had recruited Chinese Americans but they had been restricted to serve only as stewards;  This continued until May , when restrictions ceased and they were allowed to serve in other ratings. Other races were accepted somewhat more easily, joining white Marine units.
For the next few decades, the incorporation of black troops was not widely accepted within the Corps, nor was desegregation smoothly or quickly achieved. Spurred by executive orders in and , the integration of non-white USMC personnel proceeded in stages from segregated battalions in , to unified training in , and finally full integration in Martin served with the Marine platoon on the Reprisal for a year and a half, involved in hard ship-to-ship fighting, but was lost with the rest of his unit when the brig sank in October At least 12 other black men served with various American Marine units in —; more may have been in service but not identified as blacks in the records.
The Marine Corps, being a combat arm of the Navy, did not recruit any black soldiers. Unlike the US Army which had separate regiments that a soldier could remain in for his entire military career, Marines were individually transferred to various ship's detachments and naval bases.
