As our country continues its march into true dystopian nightmare, more residual horror from Trump's seemingly ceaselessly hateful and fascist presidential campaign surfaces: this time, Hopewell M.B. church--with a largely black congregation--in Greenville, Mississippi was vandalized and set on fire yesterday--"Vote Trump" spray-painted across its facade.

While the FBI investigates the (fairly clear) racial motive for this heinous act, a GoFoundMe page has been instated to help support the parish in rebuilding it.

Only hours into its inception, and the page has already raised $23,505 of its $10,000 goal. J. Blair Reeves--the GoFundMe's creator stated:

The animus of this election cycle combined with the potent racial history of burning black churches as a political symbol makes this event something we must not ignore.

Only two weeks ago, the internet came together to help repair a North Carolina GOP field office that had been burned by thugs. Justice demands we do the same now.

Help out if you can; if you can't, don't vote for Trump.
