Supporters of Trayvon Martin and George Zimmerman came face-to-face Sunday during a march through a wealthy neighborhood in Houston.
Some 80 pro-Zimmerman supporters waved signs and shouted slogans at Martin supporters as they passed through the neighborhood of River Oaks, an upscale enclave deemed "Houston's Sanford, Florida" by the organizer of the Trayvon rally, the Houston Chronicle reported.
Separated by cops on horseback and specialized crowd control units, the two sides traded insults and shouted slogans at each another but never clashed physically.

Who is Quanell Ten, and who was Quanell One to Nine?
That was the first thing I noticed... media still trying to manipulate reality.
Quanell X, meet Super X.
Neither group looks very large.
Quanell X is the local leader of New Black Panther Party — unless he has already been thrown out for (oddly) being too radical.
We know which of the two groups is apt to turn to violence. Justice for Martin? He already got his justice, self inflicted.
Should have a sign about Antonio West, a baby shot by two of Obama’s sons http://thesteadydrip.blogspot.com/2013/07/white-baby-murdered-by-black-teens-who.html

The protestors were outnumbered by the many locals who came to watch the very entertaining street theater. In many ways, the atmosphere was more like a silly parade than an angry protest. There were lots of intentionally goofy signs and other unrelated wacky posters. A mandolin strummer and ram's horn blower that added to absurdity of the event. It was fitting that the climatic intersection where the opposing protesters merged contains no fewer than three Starbucks! The onlookers comfortably mingled with the protestors and many brought their dogs and even very young kids in strollers. Many of the bemused black onlookers appeared to be there just to watch the fun and not to take sides.
The Houston Police Department handled the event very professionally and should be commended. Houston is known for being a large city that still has good racial relations in spite of malefactors like Mr. X. This lame protest seemed like an event that might have worked elsewhere, but here, it was largely a joke.
Nice gitfiddle there geek boy.
Yes. Pity the woman who gets her for a wife. ;^)
