According to reports, black churches in Tennesse, the Carolinas and Georgia have all been set on fire. Three of the four have been determined to be arson with the last one in Georgia still under investigation.
Twitter erupted Monday night (June 29) with the hashtag #WhoIsBurningBlackChurches to bring attention to the string of churches being set on fire since the wake of the Charleston Shooting and the call for the removal of the Confederate Flag.

Hypocrisy is when people who decry destruction of property during riots are silent when black churches burn. #WhoIsBurningBlackChurches

A plane disappears & CNN has hours on end of coverage. But, figuring out #WhoIsBurningBlackChurches is left for twitter to cover I guess.

Both love Twitter for getting #WhoIsBurningBlackChurches to trend and sad that this is happening with insufficient media attention.

What if there were a resurgence of terrorist attacks on American churches. Should 24news make time for that? #WhoIsBurningBlackChurches?
