FARGO — Chelsea Preston watched the "OneFargo" event on Friday, June 5, at Island Park in Fargo, with tears in her eyes.
She had just returned from visiting the George Floyd memorial site in Minneapolis, and also saw damage from widespread rioting and vandalism following his death May 25 at the hands of four Minneapolis police officers.

Preston, 30, was adopted by parents who are both white. Now living in Texas, she said people who think racism isn't a problem in Fargo need to look a little deeper within themselves.
She spoke with The Forum's Robin Huebner just after the event wrapped up.
