Mississippi authorities have made an arrest in the burning of an African-American church spray-painted with the words, “Vote Trump.”

Mississippi Department of Public Safety spokesman Warren Strain says Andrew McClinton of Leland, Mississippi, who is African-American, is charged with first-degree arson of a place of worship.

McClinton was arrested Wednesday. Hopewell Missionary Baptist Church in Greenville, Mississippi, was burned and vandalized Nov. 1, a week before the presidential election.

  1. Many people do not realize that many black "pastors" across the South actually own the building and property that is considered their "church". Burning of churches to escape debt/mortgages has occurred time and again and the blame deflected to the KKK and other imaginary extremists groups that mainly exist in propaganda perpetuated by the MSM and hate groups such as the Southern Poverty Law Center. The "pastors" see an opportunity when some "racial strife" arises and torch their building and cry "wolf". It is sad, but as in this case, very true.

    1. Thanks and too bad. It will be great if the Trump administration can turn them around

  2. The only case of a legitimately dangerous white extremist that I've heard of is the shooter in Charleston.

    Otherwise, there just isn't a "hate" movement, for lack of a better term. At worst, you'll find some people who say mean things online, but that's true of a lot of groups, not only of white people.
