Charleston thickens list of over 4 thousand racist crimes in the u.s.

Thousands of people participated in various religious ceremonies in the city of South Carolina, but also throughout the country, in memory of the six women and three men killed by an alleged supporter of a racist movement, on Wednesday night.

"I came here to express my condolences to the families of the victims and to pray that we're all together, stronger, that we love each other, all the same," said a participant in the wake of Charleston.

The attack aimed at one of the oldest African-American Methodist churches in the country, burned in the 19th century in retaliation against a slave revolt.

The Methodist community of Philadelphia does not hide the revolt, during the vigil in the city:

"It is shocking to know that a five-year-old had to pretend she was dead not to be put down. And that the gunmen spared the life of a person so that he could tell the story. It's a senseless crime that has to be stopped. Have to put an end to this, "says the Reverend Joseph Bullock.
