The organizers said Black Lives Matter is racist and needs to "hold their people accountable."

Armed protesters assembled in front of Houston's NAACP on Sunday, carrying Confederate flags and asserting that they were just exercising their Second Amendment rights.

"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 told the Houston Chronicle. "If they're going to be a civil rights organization and defend their people, they also need to hold their people accountable."

Reports say there were only about 20 or so protesters, and the police dispersed them after a few hours when residents of the local community, who were black, started to push back.
