The Christian Post :

Protesters tore down and burned a Black Lives Matter sign and banner at two historic black churches during Saturday evening’s rallies as supporters of President Donald Trump and counter protesters clashed in Washington, D.C.

Police said Sunday they were investigating what appeared to be potential hate crimes at Asbury United Methodist Church and Metropolitan A.M.E. Church where a BLM banner and sign were torn down.

Videos posted on social media showed a crowd of men taking down a BLM sign at Metropolitan A.M.E. Church, founded in 1838, and another group of men burning a BLM banner in the street.

The pastor of a historic D.C. church whose Black Lives Matter sign was torn down and burned in the street during Saturday’s chaotic pro-Trump “Million MAGA March” responded Sunday, saying the violent act was “reminiscent of cross burnings.”

D.C. police confirmed to WTOP on Sunday that the attacks are being investigated as possible hate crimes. “We take these offenses seriously and we are currently investigating them as possible hate crimes,” a spokesperson said.
