Yes. Carrying signs, guns and Confederate flags, the demonstrators simply wanted everyone to know "White Lives Matter". Blavity has yet to confirm if the group is in conjunction with the "All Lives Matter" movement
"We came here because the NAACP headquarters is here and that's one of the most racist groups in America," Scott Lacy told KPRC
Police arrived on horseback and set up barricades. No one was arrested...injured...or killed

#WhiteLivesMatter is the mantra of people who still wonder why theres no white history month or Ivory Magazine...i.e. fragile white idiots— Tim Wise (@timjacobwise) August 22, 2016
But, the jokes made more sense than the movement itself.
