Despite the deadly attack on police at a Black Lives Matter rally in Dallas, Reverend Jarrett Maupin says the Black Lives matter protest against officer-involved shootings will go on tonight as planned.  Maupin says “we must move forward and go ahead with the rally.”  He says there’s no fear of any violence and

considers Dallas an “isolated incident.”  Maupin says it will be a peaceful protest with a tribute to the officers that were gunned down.  One suspect has been identified as Micah X. Johnson.  Maupin says Johnson was “a member of the “Nation of Islam,” a radical Muslim, Black American Group on the Southern Poverty Law Center’s list of hate groups.”  Maupin went on to denounce the group and called on them “stop preaching hate, stop preaching destruction of White people and filling the hearts of black people with violence and animus.”
