On Saturday, armed members of the New Black Panther Party faced off against a smaller group of armed protesters at a Nation of Islam mosque in Dallas, Texas, BizPac Review reported.
According to the Dallas Morning News, police kept the two factions apart:
A few hundred South Dallas residents, mostly black, flooded Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard to oppose a planned demonstration by a mostly white group that routinely protests outside mosques.
Both sides were armed.
Dallas police stood guard on a funeral home’s roof as black counterprotesters swarmed the parking lot of Eva’s House of Bar-B-Q, vowing to defend their streets and chanting “black power.”
“This is what they fear — the black man,” activist Olinka Green said. “This is what America fears.”

Protesters from the Bureau of American Islamic Relations (BAIR) planned the protest for 1 p.m., but eventually left when they realized they were outnumbered.
Sarah Mervosh explained:
The group rallies against what it calls radical Islamism. Its name riffs on the national Muslim advocacy group CAIR, the Council on American-Islamic Relations. BAIR has protested multiple times outside the Islamic Center of Irving and had threatened a protest outside the Nation of Islam two weeks ago, but no one showed up.
