sorry i disagree, using the word “torched” really?, several of those investigation reports are out right now, perhaps you should read them.

[re: this post or this one]

Oh but I dO read. Quite a bit, in fact, but my problem is that I don’t put white-privilege-blinders or #newblackmentality™ shades on before I read the news. So I’m free to use common sense and conclude that this unusually high number of Black churches, and Black churches only, burning so soon after a massacre in a Black church in the South, and so soon after the Confederate flag being removed by a Black woman, isn’t some random, inexplicable “coincidence”

I wonder, precisely who do you think it is ruling those church fires as “accidents”? Good ole boys who luv them some guns, grits and the Confederate flag, or totally fair and impartial people? 

I’ve been Black for almost 31yrs - that’s way too long for me to automatically believe anything the authorities tell me. There is a very long and well documented history of burning Black churches in the South. Someone says the burnings are an accident and not arson? Show me *all* the evidence and PROVE IT 

So, no offense, but you’re hitting on something near and dear to me with your uninvited, obtuse comments, and you can keep right on “disagreeing” and believe whatever you need to, but in the meantime, I’ll be staying very woke over here in the real world

“A lot of times, when people say Hip-Hop, they don’t know what they’re talking about. They just think of the rappers. When you talk about hip-hop, you’re talking about the whole culture and movement. You have to take the whole culture for what it is.” Afrika Bambaataa
