Although the media is desperate to keep the false narrative alive that the family of Michael Brown is only calling for peace, the fact is that on Monday night, just before all hell broke loose in Ferguson, while Michael Brown’s mother stood silently by, Brown’s stepfather repeatedly ordered the mob surrounding him to “Burn this bitch down!”
The next morning, the Brown family church was one of about a dozen or so building burnt to the ground. Worse still, a 20 year-old man was found dead.
While the media covers up the tragic irony of Brown family losing their own church in a riot one of their own called for, the pastor of that church, Pastor Carlton Lee, is blaming the loss of his church on white supremacists.
Pastor Lee said he believes this due to the numerous death threats he’s received after calling for the arrest of Darren Wilson, the police officer cleared by a grand jury in the shooting death of the 19 year-old. The church is a storefront church located three miles from where most of the damage occurred.
He said he told Michael Brown Sr. about the extensive damage on Tuesday afternoon. “He was just devastated again,” he said.
The pastor said he doubted the same people who were raging on the other end of West Florissant had burned his church. Instead, he said, he suspected white supremacists who wanted to punish him for his support of the Brown family, who had just been baptized there.
