Yay, more of this. This was the scene over the weekend in Dallas at one of several #BlackLivesMatter rallies.

There's little information to go on, but from what I can tell, as the Black Lives Matter people assembled on one side of the street, a counter-rally group with no name affiliated with it other than "a bunch of white guys with American flags, pick-up trucks, and cowboy boots kind of protested in their own way by waving American flags and sort of just standing around with no real agenda other than to observe and be a presence?

The Black Lives Matter people made the first move to unite the two groups, and it seemed like there was some common ground found amidst the hugs and prayers.

Who knows where it'll go from this encounter, but it's nice to see these two groups realize that maybe everything that happened last week (the deaths of Alton Sterling, Philando Castile, and 5 Dallas cops) is bigger than them, and if they want the violence to end, they'll have to work together against a corrupt government than against each other.
