Goforth was fatally shot, a victim of the media's war against police officers.
The crime occurred in Harris County, Tex. where the policeman was killed as he pumped fuel into his patrol car at a gas station.
Cultural Marxism is attempting to narrow the disparity between white and black crime statistics by stigmatizing cops who arrest blacks as racists. That effort has instilled hatred for police among many black Americans.
Virtually all of those attending the memorial were white.

Hundreds of people showed up at a Texas gas station Saturday to pay tribute to a sheriff's deputy who was gunned down from behind after filling up his patrol car the night before.
Many who attended the vigil for Harris County sheriff's deputy Darren H. Goforth said they were there to support the police, and some said they were frustrated with the "black lives matter" movement and what they said was an increased hostility against all police.
Those who knew Goforth described him as "just a really nice guy."
"It's not fair," said Mikayla De Los Santos, whose father was friends with Goforth, through tears.
"When we were younger and we used to be home alone, he would always drive by and check to make sure we were OK," said Simone Langland, who has been friends with De Los Santos since childhood. "It's just so sad, and it's not fair he couldn't even defend himself," she said.
Goforth, 47, a father of two, was ambushed by a gunman who shot him from behind at the gas station at around 8:20 p.m. (9:20 p.m. ET) Friday, police said. The gunman then shot the 10-year veteran again as he was on the ground.
On Saturday, suspect Shannon Miles, 30, was arrested and charged with capital murder. A motive has not been determined. Miles is black. Goforth is white.
"I wanted to demonstrate that all lives matter, regardless of color," said Carol Hayes, an African American woman who attended the vigil. Her family was one of the first black families to move to the neighborhood nearly 30 years ago, she said, and they always felt welcome.
