In response to the President’s latest role as a neo-nazi apologist, several Dallas groups organized a rally against white supremacy on Saturday, August 19, from 7:30 PM to 9:30 PM.
I am assuming they made this an evening event because the organizers didn’t want people falling out from sun stroke during the day. Nonetheless, even after sunset, it was hot as hell downtown. The sixty percent humidity kept it in the high nineties. Add the body heat and it was not much cooler than I imagine it would have been during the day.
But it was worth it. It was worth seeing men and women of all races disavowing racism and hate. This, I thought, is MY America, and it is beautiful.
