Black Mississippi church burned, vandalized with ‘Vote Trump’
Late Tuesday, a black Mississippi church was burned and then vandalized with the words “Vote Trump.”
The majority of the damage done to the Hopewell Missionary Baptist Church in Greenville, Mississippi, was done to the main sanctuary and, thankfully, there were no injuries. However, the words “Vote Trump” were spray-painted on the outside of the church, and a woman at the nearby Rose Hill Missionary Baptist Church said that the community is shocked over the arson and vandalism.
The FBI told The Clarion-Ledger that they are aware of the situation and are investigating to “determine if any civil rights crimes were committed.”
There’s currently a GoFundMe page to raise funds towards repairing the church.
