Just three weeks after five police officers were killed in a sniper-style ambush in Dallas at a protest against police brutality, organizers of that protest held another in the same city, with one speaker saying that blacks “refuse to settle for a few kumbaya moments.”

Too soon?

Activists certainly didn’t think it was too soon, and the protest went on as scheduled Friday night, although at a much smaller scale.

It’s been strange few weeks, to be certain. President Obama cut short his European tour to speak at a memorial service in Dallas in hopes of bringing people together, but then turned the service into a lecture on gun control and racism, saying that “none of us are entirely innocent” when it comes to racial discrimination … “and this includes our police departments.”

Then, this week at the Democratic National Convention, the party tried to walk a fine line by featuring both law enforcement and “The Mothers of the Movement” — a line that was crossed when a moment of silence for fallen police officers was interrupted by shouts of “black lives matter!”

So, which of those was the kumbaya moment?

To their credit, organizers of the protest march asked for a moment of silence for the fallen officers that went more smoothly than the attempt at the DNC.

One tenacious counter-protester and Donald Trump supporter, unlike one-time presidential candidate Martin O’Malley, refused to apologize for insisting that “all lives matter.”

By all accounts, the protest ended peacefully this time, with the biggest challenge to police being keeping marchers on the sidewalk and out of the street.

Police, of course, were on hand to keep the peace, and even the five slain officers quietly maintained their watch over the city, in a sense.
