Fires in Black Churches in Four Southern States: ARSON Suspected

You know what? Fuck the media & their reports on ISIS.

There has been No coverage of the string of ARSON commited on Black churches. This is how some bitter, white folks are handling the push back on calling that murder Dylann Roof exactly what he is, a fucking white supremacist & racial terrorist, and the call to take down that racists flag.

Theyse evil bastards just will NOT go gently into that that hot HELL they deserve. And of course they are COWARDS, doing their evil works in the nightime.(DARKNESS) And Black folks are labeled as dark & evil. The gull..

This is their response, MORE TERROR & VIOLENCE against Black people and their HOUSES OF WORSHIP.


String of Nighttime Fires Hit Predominately Black Churches in Four Southern States

In what may not be a coincidence, a string of nighttime fires have damaged or destroyed at least six predominately black churches in four southern states in the past week.

Arsonists started at least three of the fires, while other causes are being examined in the other fires, investigators say.

The series of fires – some of them suspicious and possible hate crimes — came in the week following a murderous rampage by a white supremacist who shot and killed nine people at Emanuel AME Church in Charleston, S.C.

Fire at black Georgia church was arson, officials say


Investigators: Fire at black church in N. Carolina is arson

The Recent, Hateful History of Attacks on Black Churches

Churches have long been hubs of organizing and advocacy in the black community, which was one reason they were so often attacked during the civil rights movement. But the violence didn’t end there, obviously. Attacks and threats against black churches and institutions still take place at a greater frequency than you might think. Here is a partial list of church incidents in the past two decades alone:  Read on from the link above.

Make no mistake about it, these are planned attacks, especailly as we get closer to the 2016 presidential elections.

As President Obama mentioned yesterday on BLACK churches:

  1. Mount Zion AME church located in Greeleyville SC is on fire.

    AME church located in Greeleyville SC is on fire.  Massive flames, gone multi-alarm

  2. The black church is under fierce attack, folks! This is 8th black churches in a week. These bigoted racists want their race war.

  3. CNN is not reporting on the black churches being burned down b/c it means they’d have to talk about racism & that #ConfederateFlag. They’re doing everything they can to change the narrative about the racial violence that happened in #Charleston. Do they know we can see them? I have watched for one hour and NOT one word about black churches burning.

    This interview with Bryan Stevenson is a must read, IMO. It’s long, close to seven printed pages. But it is a rare person who can speak about something as complex as “our real problem with race” with such knowledge, clarity, compassion, and eloquence.

    Bryan Stevenson on Charleston and Our Real Problem with Race
    “I don’t believe slavery ended in 1865, I believe it just evolved.”
    By Corey Johnson

    Bryan Stevenson has spent most of his career challenging bias against minorities and the poor in the criminal justice system. He is the founder and executive director of the Equal Justice Initiative, based in Montgomery, Ala., an advocacy group that opposes mass incarceration and racial injustice. Stevenson is a member of The Marshall Project’s advisory board. He spoke with Corey Johnson. The interview has been edited for length and clarity.

    Read the interview…

      I thank you so very much for posting this interview. It is OUTSTANDING!

      Yes, it is a MUST READ for everyone. I hope it is posted all over the internet!

        YVW, Yahtzee. Bryan Stevenson, I believe, is gaining national recognition. This is fairly recent, mostly after the publication of “Just Mercy.” When the brilliant ones speak or share what they know, it really makes a difference.

    Again here is info by the Southern Poverty Law Center on the CCC that influenced Roof. Who else have they influenced to do evil acts?

    ” The Council of Conservative Citizens: Dylann Roof’s Gateway Into The World of White Nationalism”

    Roan Garcia-Quintana is one of these characters. Garcia-Quintana is a lifetime member of the CCC and sits on the organization’s board. Despite these associations, the Cuban-born white nationalist has remained very active in the state politics. Garcia-Quintana ran for the South Carolina state Senate’s District 7 seat as the Republican nominee in 2008 and came in second with 27 percent of the vote. Garcia-Quintana also sat on S.C. Gov. Nikki Haley’s campaign re-election steering committee, before he was forced to resign in 2013 after his ties to the CCC were made public. In comments after his resignation from Haley’s committee, he went on to talk about her physical characteristics (she is the daughter of Indian immigrants) in relation to white people. “She has the features of a Caucasian: her nose, her eyes, her cheeks, her mouth. That’s really how you describe it.”

    CCC webmaster, white nationalist Kyle Rogers, is another South Carolina-based CCC member who was active in state politics until recently. Rogers served as a delegate to the Charleston County Republican convention in 2007, and Dorchester County, S.C., GOP officials confirmed to SPLC in 2013 that he was a member of that county’s Republican Executive Committee. Republican politicians there expressed embarrassment about Rogers’ participation, saying they had asked him to resign but were unable legally to eject him. Rogers also manages a flag store,, which you can visit by clicking an ad on the CCC website. Rogers’ store sells the flag of the government of Rhodesia, the same flag sewn on the jacket worn by Roof in his Facebook profile.

    In the hours since the authorization of Dylann Roof’s manifesto, the CCC website has crashed and the group is remaining tight-lipped. The longtime CCC leader Gordon Baum died earlier this year and the CCC are yet to name his successor. That individual is going to have to answer to that fact that the hate group was named by Roof, a man who murdered nine African Americans on Wednesday, as the group that acted as his gateway to white nationalism.

  6. FBI Reportedly Investigating String of Arsons at Black Churches

    According to Buzzfeed, the FBI confirmed on Sunday that federal officials are investigating a series of fires that recently hit four predominantly black Southern churches, although the agency denied there was any evidence connecting the blazes at this time.

    “They’re being investigated to determine who is responsible and what motives are behind them,” an FBI spokesperson told the site. “I’m not sure there is any reason to link them together at this point.”

    Of the fires—which broke out this week in Tennessee, Georgia, North Carolina and South Carolina—three have been ruled arsons, with the cause of the fourth still being investigated.

    • yahtzeebutterfly says:

      It is good to here that the FBI is now involved.

      I think they should consider looking into the CCC that influenced Roof and see if others were mentored for action the way that Roof was.

    • Ametia says:

      Keep Tweeting, SG2. These cable stations have been going on & on about the escapees from NY, seriously, it took them lmost a month to find them. yet we are supposed to be interested in this?

      GTFOH. Still no reporting on these fires on major networks.

    Long History of Terror in America by Jacobinmag

    1868 burning of churches was the response to ‘keep the Black Men from power and outnumbering the White Men’. The KKK was formed and began the church burning and killing of 1000 Blacks along with White allies. Kkk burned African Methodist Evangelical church to the ground. AME was targeted because of it’s organizational skills. AME took the lead in voter registration in 1866 when Black Men were first given the right to vote.

    2015 we are still plagued with the KKK who convinced the White Man to fear Black men. Kkk felt ‘Black Men will rape innocent White girls and will outnumber’. The terror was allowed then and continues today. The same fights in government today stem from the same above fear and “social programs’ for Blacks that Blacks of 1868 fought for well over 20 years to no avail. Fighting finally came to a head with the White riots of 1920-45 on Blacks of which they destroyed black property, lives and started the peonage (jail system).

    America continues by its laws to help every race economically except Blacks because of this fear. Housing, loans, jobs all comes with protests and more laws. Because of this fear and their established laws Blacks will never receive social reforms needed in inner cities. Nor see sustained resources. Why we see Black schools decline and continued increase of Blacks in prisons.

    Our work is not as great as our constituents have us to believe. We must establish our 8 million poverty vs their 40 million.However, we are plagued by the judicial system. We need lawyers and judges.

    In conclusion, established Blacks, regretfully, aren’t reaching back as other races, Jewish, Asian, Hispanic, Native American. We must love each other enough to help each other. There is not one Black who has not been helped by another black either directly or indirectly.

    ‘We must work together as brother’s or perish as fools’ MLK.

    The white supremacists are busy. Now I understand it’s 6 black churches burning in four states and not one word on the news.

  9. yahtzeebutterfly says:

    An internet friend whose husband is a pastor in a Black church wrote this comment under a news article recently:

    “God’s grace is working even now, even in the midst of this storm, God’s Amazing Grace will not let evil triumph.”

  10. The media had wall 2 wall coverage of businesses on fire in Ferguson & Baltimore but deafening silence on BLACK CHURCHES set afire. We see you, MSM!

    “#WhiteSupremacy could not exist w/o the help of the U.S. Media. Notice their non coverage abt 6 fires of blk churches in 4 southern states?”

    Keep pushing this message, SG2!

  12. The Black Church is the heartbeat of the black community and is under fierce attack. A mass shooting and now fires. Stay woke, folks!

    • Ametia says:

      It’s going to get uglier, before we see more light SG2. the racist organizations are ANGRY, even more bow, with the push back on removing that fucking flag from various outlet.

  13. Maria MMF says:

    Not is the media ignoring the fires set in black churches, the lead story on national networks was about the escapees from NY prison. That is a local news story. I live in NM & I just don’t care. The news should have been about Pres. Obama’s historic speech and the landmark cases before SCOTUS. Our press is a disgrace.

    • Ametia says:

      Hi Maria. We have no REAL press in America. They are not interested in PBO,unless they can fake scandals about him; a disgrace indeed!

  14. yahtzeebutterfly says:


    You did an excellent job of speaking TRUTH in your article.

  15. yahtzeebutterfly says:

    Right now I am embracing the Black community and all of you here in my thoughts and prayers.

    May God watch over you all with his protective Presence now and always.

  16. Ametia says:
  17. yahtzeebutterfly says:

    Where is law enforcement during these terrorists acts?

    Why have not local police departments across ALL of these states (and even across U.S.) assigned officers to guard ALL Black churches at this time?!! Why no LE surveillance to catch the arson terrorists?!

  18. rikyrah says:

    We all know who did this. And they will not prosper.
