Is this a African American owned bar or a white one? From what I've seen the African American ones get shuttered when violence happens. Not so much for the white ones.

And thus the lawsuit of Pattern or Practice.

I don't know who owns or runs Rojo's, but I remember reading about them bering robbed a couple of times.

'Rojo' is Spanish for red.
