HOUSTON -- Tensions were on the rise in Houston's Third Ward as protesters set up in front of Houston's NAACP headquarters on Wheeler Ave.

The "White Lives Matter" protest wanted to voice their concerns that black leaders and organizations have not condemned the actions of the "Black Lives Matter" movement which has led to rioting and violence in certain cities.

Meanwhile, blacks residents in the neighborhood were surprised by protest and felt the message did not come across well when protesters were waving Confederate flags.

Fortunately, police were on scene to ensure the protest did not escalate into a violent one.
