beatings in Pioneer Square were clearly tinged with racial hatred.
And in at least two Mardi Gras incidents under investigation, African

A Church Arson Epidemic?  It's Smoke and Mirrors By MICHAEL FUMENTO -
The epidemic of Church arsons is largely the result of one small
activist group that doctored the numbers, and the result is a new
wave of copycat crimes which "accomplish that what the Ku Klux Klan
could not do"
Fumento is the guy who was tremendously attacked for pointing out
that AIDS was basically not a danger to most white heterosexuals.

Journal American 7/5/96 (Bellevue WA) Arson data casts doubt on
racial link to most fires By Fred Bayles By The Associated Press The
total count for the last 18 months: 75 fires at white churches and 73
at black churches. The tally for the past six years shows a wider
margin: 248 arsons at white churches compared to 161 at black
churches. Out of those 75, only 12 to 18 are likely based on racism,
15 either had black suspects, or hit both races.

Rush Limbaugh 6/18/96 Notes statistics show that historically, church
fires have been declining over the past 2 decades, and no insurance
claims have been filed with racism being the proven cause. About half
of church fires are of white churches.
