On Tuesday night, the Hopewell Missionary Baptist Church in Greenville, Mississippi, was set on fire and vandalized with the words “Vote Trump.” No injuries have been reported. The FBI is investigating the incident “to determine if any civil rights crimes were committed.” There is a GoFundMe to help the church rebuild. This crime is giving us deja vu.
Donald Trump removed the KKK, Neo-Nazi and other white supremacist groups from the Terrorist Watchlist and will focus all his counter-terrorist on ones carried out by Muslims - two years after Dylan Roof killed 8 black churchgoers & right after the Quebec massacre where a white supremacist killed 8 Muslims at their mosque. I will never forgive or carry any sympathy for those who voted for him.
Before Dylann Roof carried out the massacre that left nine black churchgoers dead at Emanuel AME Church in Charleston, SC, he did some research.
He wanted to know which cities in South Carolina had the highest black-to-white ratios
And whether any of those locations had churches with large African-American congregations
This is according to witness testimony in Roof’s capital hate crimes trial on Monday.
A written list was found in Roof’s car.
Roof had written the names of predominantly black churches in Charleston: Morris Brown AME Church, Calvary AME Church, Central Baptist Church, St. Patrick’s Catholic Church, Ebenezer AME Church and “Mother Emanuel.” Read more for the latest from Roof’s trial
I wish the white people in the Dildo Poof tag were crying like this for the nine black men and women gunned down in their place of worship and not for a racist, murderous fuckboi with a shitty bowlcut.
EDIT: Some ‘Roofies’ were mad at me for misspelling his name so I hopefully fixed it. Thanks guys :)
A distraught Nadine Collier walking out of a court hearing in June 2015. Her mother Ethel Lance was, along with eight other innocent black people, murdered by white supremacist Dylann Roof. To the latterly mentioned man, Nadine said, “I forgive you. You took something very precious away from me. I will never get to talk to her ever again. I will never be able to hold her again, but I forgive you, and have mercy on your soul. … You hurt me. You hurt a lot of people. If God forgives you, I forgive you.”
