"They that can give up essential liberty to obtain a little temporary safety deserve neither liberty nor safety." -- Ben Franklin
File under U.S. Terrorism. This is a reference to arson against numerous churches in the U.S. with African American congregations.
This figure has been called into question because the number of arson or bomb attempts on Black churches is not that far out of line with arson and bomb attempts on all churches, synagogues, and mosques.
However, in my view the very scale of the attacks nationwide imply that there is a lot of hate out there, and is evidence of domestic terrorism, albeit not conducted by "others" we can easily scapegoat.
