Really? Please explain. I’m interested to hear about this.

The events in Charlottesville, VA in August 2017 are a pretty glaring recent example of organized racism.

1. As mentioned, Dallas already has a Civil Rights Museum that would outshine that little building.
2. Evans & Rosedale is being shaped to be the "African Americana" portion of Ft. Worth.
3. Regardless of how anyone feels about the Panther Island project, that building is more than likely gonna be demolished anyway.

The Fort Worth Police Department would be a perfect example of an organized racist institution.
