A white supremacist group calling themselves “White Lives Matter” stormed the Houston headquarters of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People on Sunday.

The group, carrying Confederate flags and “WHITE LIVES MATTER” banners, was reportedly protesting the NAACP’s respond to the Black Lives Matter movement. About 20 armed men and women participated.

The protest leader Ken Reed told the Houston Chronicle that the group blames black leaders and the NAACP for not responding in the right way to the Black Lives Matter movement:

“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. If they’re going to be a civil rights organization and defend their people, they also need to hold their people accountable.”

“We’re not out here to instigate or start any problems. Obviously we’re exercising our Second Amendment rights but that’s because we have to defend ourselves. Their organizations and their people are shooting people based on the color of their skin. We’re not. We definitely will defend ourselves, but we’re not out here to start any problems.”
