As The Persuaders sang, "It's a thin line between love and hate..."

As it is between a hate crime and arson.

No Evidence of Hate Crimes in Fires at Black Churches.  (The New York Times, 6/29/2015)

Key word:  'probably'.
Investigators have concluded that while the fire in Charlotte, and one two days earlier in Knoxville, Tenn., were certainly arson, they were probably acts of vandalism. Of the four structures at Briar Creek Baptist, only a youth activities building in the back of the complex burned, while the sanctuary was untouched.
