White supremacists surrounded the Houston, Texas NAACP chapter Sunday afternoon while holding a “white lives matter” banner, CW39 Houston reports.
The protesters said that they wanted to voice their concerns amid popularity of the black lives matter movement. They insisted that NAACP leaders and the organization denounce the movement, which they said is responsible for riots and violence in certain cities.
One protester was holding the sign 14 Words, which is a white supremacist slogan meaning, “We must secure the existence of our people and a future for white children.” It comes from the late white supremacist David Lane, who was a member of pro-white terrorist group called The Order.
Those that live in Houston’s 3rd Ward were shocked by the protest and uncomfortable with the use of the Confederate flag. Police were on the scene to prevent any violence but Twitter users still managed to mock the protesters with disgust.
'White lives matter' protest? Outside an NAACP office in Houston?! At least try 'poor white lives matter' & protest the Trumps of the world.

Why would "White Lives Matter" protesters choose Houston's NAACP? Because their goal is black lives not mattering. https://t.co/35kQNKtXoR
