White Lives Matter group protests outside NAACP in Houston's Third Ward

By Jessica Hamilton, The Houston Chronicle

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."

#whitelivesdomatter but the Rebel Flag has no place in this issue. The #rebelflag as we like to call it, not the #confederateflag is a symbol of pride and not a symbol of racism for most of us who identify as Southerners.

#blacklivesmatter got the ball rolling on this issue of #alllivesmatter and it will not stop until they are denounced by a President who just called for Louisiana not to discriminate in it's flood recovery efforts. That means he's more in tuned with #blacklivesmatter than anyone realized and called the entire State of Louisiana racist just by making his stupid request.

The government is one when we as a people are divided. They're perpetuating racism at every turn. They want us fighting each other so we don't watch them! Every American regardless of color needs to stand together and again become the force that shaped our Great Nation. We must protect OUR COUNTRY from the evil inside our own walls, OUR GOVERNMENT!
