Change "Malcom X Blvd" street name in Dallas to "Brent Thompson Blvd"

Malcom X called for violent action against the US government, Police, and "White America". Unlike Martin Luther King who preached equality for all and judging people for their character, Malcom X preached "By any means necessary".

  Officer Brent Thompson was killed by a man who followed the rhetoric of Malcom X in the streets of Dallas on July 7, 2016. Brent Thompson was the first DART officer killed in the line of duty. He was monitoring a protest to help the protesters have a safe event, despite the protest being "anti-police" when he and 4 other police officers were murdered for simply being police officers on the street trying to keep our streets peaceful.
