    And why this isn't a massive national outrage? Why there are just few reporting and discussing this on the media?

    Since Oct. 8, fire has damaged five churches, all within a few miles of each other in north St. Louis city and county. In each case, the front doors were set on fire.

    But these weren't an "isolated" events. In the summer, more than 10 black churches were burned down in the South.

    How come some ignorants (and/or bigots) argue there is no racism in the country?

    Now, some are even arguing these events are not a racial issue, but of religious persecution.

    How much is too much?

    Violence keeps escalating...

      Haven't heard much about it. I am sure that people of the greater St. Louis area want to avoid anymore negative publicity since Ferguson. Perhaps that is why this has been kept under wraps. Could you provide a link that is info about these crimes?

          Thanks for the info, IslandBites, we will have to wait and find out who the culprits actually are. The proximity and the similarity of the crimes rules out mere coincidence. We wait for the story to continue to unfold...

            And we know what the "unfolding story" will reveal. Some knothead Neanderthal group with more balls than brains. I think  America has made great strides towards the goal of eliminating overt racism and its look the other way attitude among "good" people. I can only hope the culprits are quickly found and sent to prison where they can high-five like minded idiots.

            Geesh, we are an advancing as a society, but sometimes the frat party members of our club make it hard to see that progress.

              While it is unlikely, I have to allow for the possibility of the reactionary position that the blacks burn down their own churches for insurance and publicity purposes, until I have more information to eliminate this remote possibility, I will step lightly. I think that the 'Neanderthals' are behind it too, but wait for more  evidence before crying 'fire' in a crowded theatre.

              While society has made strides in eliminating overt racist behavior, we need to continue to work on that which is  not so overt but has deleterious effects on race relations  all the same
