Since 1990, more than 100 Black churches have been torched or vandalized throughout the south. President Clinton has called for a thorough investigation, but the victims of the church burnings say the investigation has gone awry. They say the people leading the investigation have traditionally been on the wrong side of the civil rights movement. Pacifica’s Dennis Bernstein traveled to the South, to Mississippi, to investigate the investigators and examine the ties that bind these latest church fires to a long history of racial assaults.
