A small band of Caucasians has joined together in Houston, Texas to make a statement against black racism and hatred toward white people. That statement was literally made at the front door of the Houston chapter of the NAACP, as pictured above.
This post has been pieced together from two news stories. The first reports the white protest. The second covers the weak black response.

The Confederate flag waved in front of the NAACP office Sunday. The red flag with its blue X holding white stars hung over the shoulder of a White Lives Matter member who was joined by others in his group in a protest against the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People.
“We came out here to protest against the NAACP and their failure in speaking out against the atrocities that organizations like Black Lives Matter and other pro-black organizations have caused the attack and killing of white police officers, the burning down of cities and things of that nature,” White Lives Matter member Ken Reed said. “If they’re going to be a civil rights organization and defend their people, they also need to hold their people accountable.”
The protest drew much attention as people took photos of the group which held assault rifles and “White Lives Matter” signs on the Third Ward block.
“We’re not out here to instigate or start any problems,” Reed said. “Obviously we’re exercising our Second Amendment rights but that’s because we have to defend ourselves.”
Though area residents agreed with the message of equality that, at times, was shouted from the bull horn, some were taken aback by the Confederate flags and the presence of firearms.
“That’s a bold statement,” resident Quintina Richardson said. “You come into their home, front door, and say ‘hey!’ You’ve got some nerve.”
“The Conferderate flag throws me off,” Richardson said. “You’re saying Black Lives Matter is a racist organization but when you’re throwing the Confederate flag up and saying White Lives Matter, are you saying you’re racist?”
And the NAACP’s response:

HOUSTON – The Houston branch of the NAACP spoke out for the first time Monday about a controversial “White Lives Matter” rally held over the weekend outside their 3rd Ward offices.
The civil rights organization said they support the group’s right to free speech, but they adamantly oppose the message.
“While they criticize the NAACP for not denouncing a movement (Black Lives Matter) that has been productive in bringing awareness to the racial disparity in this country, they themselves espouse totally racist positions,” said NAACP Houston Branch president Dr. James Douglas.
The Anti-Defamation League said the organizers of the “White Lives Matter” rally were tied to a local white supremacist group called the Aryan Renaissance Society.
White Lives Matter created a nice little skirmish in the ongoing unacknowledged race war in America, taking the bat.tle to enemy turf.
Really, the black and Jewish responses are weak. Defending a violent group that has advocated the murder of police is not easy. All the enemy could do here was label the protesters as racists. As if they cqre. As if the public would care.
The Confederate flag is a nice touch since if offends the enemy. Pro-white groups might as well fly it and display it while they can before it’s criminalized.
