Sad to say, I agree with you. This is despicable.

Vandalism in any cemetary is a foul act, but this particular story makes it seem like it is directed at blacks. How do the vandals know that the graves belong to black people? Or is Fox just making the story out to be something more than it really is? Does the black historian not care about vandalism of non black graves?
Do what now

There are no black or white people in a cemetery. They are all kind of grey.

In my culture, it is a sin to desecrate a cemetary. I was raised to respect the individual that is represented by the stone. Also, cemetaries are supposed to be hallowed ground, why take the chance of going to hades? This isn't about black, white, or whatever. This is about honoring someone's life.
