Cross burning in Durham

I'm sure you have heard of this by now. Pam's House Blend (by way of DKos) has a very good analysis of this renewed expression of hatred. I am truly saddened by this. I hope they catch the bastards that did this. At least this isn't being covered up. We need to know so we can confront this evil and show it that we will not be cowed.

A little history of burning crosses in the eyes of the Supreme Court.

As one of Scottish descent, I am depressed that this symbol of being prepared for invasion and communal reliance has been perverted (circa 1915) into such a sign of cruel and stupid hate. A burning cross of St. Andrew (an X shaped cross) was carried by a runner or was set alight on a hilltop as a call for the people to come together to face a threat.
