Fire At Black Church In North Carolina Ruled Arson

Fire At Black Church In North Carolina Ruled Arson

Quote:
Investigators with the Charlotte Fire Department in North Carolina say a fire at a predominantly black church is arson.

A statement from the fire department said it took about an hour Wednesday to get the fire at Briar Creek Road Baptist Church under control. Two firefighters were treated for heat-related injuries.

The department's statement said a resident from a nearby apartment complex called 911 just before 1 a.m. to report the fire.

Charlotte Fire Department Senior Investigator David Williams said, "We completed our work on the scene and determined this was intentionally set."

Williams didn't say what evidence was found to prove arson.

Investigators are not sure if the fire was racially motivated. The church's congregation is predominantly black.

The department said total damage is estimated at more than $250,000.
At least these issues are surfacing. Seems as though there is a highly likelihood this could turn out to be a hate crime, as well.

I think the trend of burning black churches is resurfacing. The racists are embarrassed over their actions in Charleston and the virtuous reaction of the victims families. Someone has to pay for that.

The call for stopping the racist flag of white supremacy through segregation, lynchings and hatred is hurting them, too, as they pretend it's representing pride in a "heritage". Who on earth takes pride in murdering people and subjugating them to slavery? Certainly not Christians.

So we know who set this fire already? Link?

There were the Clinton lies though.

Quote:
"I have vivid and painful memories of black churches being burned in my own state when I was a child." President Clinton June 8 1996 - national radio address

Quote:
The day after President Clinton's radio address, the Arkansas Democrat-Gazette and others reported that no church burnings had occurred in Arkansas during Mr. Clinton's childhood, the president's "vivid and painful" memories notwithstanding.



Thanks from kbear
