South Carolina Killer’s Apparent Manifesto Surfaces Revealing His Ugly Racist Views

According to The New York Timestwo Twitter users using the handles @henrykrinkle and @EMQuangel, uncovered a web site containing a cache of photos of Dylann Roof, as well as a racist manifesto allegedly penned by the South Carolina church shootings suspect.

The web site, called, which was first registered to Dylann Roof in February 2015,  opens with a bloodied image of an apparently dead white man laying on the ground. The image appears to be from the 1992 Australian movie “Romper Stomper”, which featured a violent Neo-Nazi gang and was loosely inspired by the real life story of Melbourne Neo-Nazi skinhead Dane Sweetman.

The web site contains multiple photos of Roof, as well as a chilling manifesto that outlined the author’s racist views. The website has not yet been officially verified as belonging to roof, but it was registered in his name in February and it contains photos of him surrounded with racist imagery. In one photo he is shown burning an American flag.

According to the manifesto, Roof claims that he was not a racist until the Trayvon Martin incident “awakened” him. Roof argues that George Zimmerman was in the right, and then he launches into a racist diatribe against African-Americans.

The text is filled with vile racist language. If it is confirmed that the comments were written by Roof, it should erase any doubt about whether or not he was a hardcore racist. A sample passage that includes milder language than most of the manifesto simply reads:

Segregation was not a bad thing. It was a defensive measure. Segregation did not exist to hold back negroes [sic]. It existed to protect us from them. And I mean that in multiple ways. Not only did it protect us from having to interact with them, and from being physically harmed by them, but it protected us from being brought down to their level. Integration has done nothing but bring Whites down to the level of brute animals. The best example of this is obviously our school system.

The author also declares Jews and Hispanics to be enemies. The manifesto concludes with Roof casting himself as the hero who will take action, while he complains that Charleston has “no skinheads, no real KKK, no one doing anything but talking on the internet”.  He adds:

Well someone has to have the bravery to take it to the real world, and I guess that has to be me.

Assuming that Roof wrote the manifesto as it appears, there can be no question that the mass shooting at Emanuel AME Church was motivated by racism. Commentators who want to downplay the shooter’s racist motivations had better take the time to read the shooter’s apparent manifesto. The racism in that document speaks loud and clear.

There is no ambiguity. The killer was a hardcore racist.

  1. People who put up manifestos, and photos like that should be treated, and investigated as someone who is trying to join ISIS.

  2. Ok…Allright. What does the FOX pundits and talking heads have to say now? There it is. Those folks have been defending and identifying this racist KILLER as a mentaly deranged person. Yeah. He is. Then, to disqualify his racist intent, they say: Oh no, he is against Christians. Really? Come on, If he was against Christians, how come he didn’t chose a White Christian church in HIS neighborhood? The denial coming from the right wing (racist) folks, Media included, are unbelieveably trying to spin this incident as a non-race hatred crime. NOT! What more do they need to see and hear? The boy made a statement saying he targeted those blacks because: “They are taking over our country, and raping our white women.” Then, READ his manifesto on the internet (now published).So, his intent was clearly Racist! No other reason is plausible. Then laughingly the Right wing, conservative pundits on FOX are claiming: He is mentally damaged. Really? Denial. Address the facts people.

  3. One more thing. To all the Right wing (racist) advocates who are always claiming: We are the true Americuns. That boy BURNED the American flag and STEPPED on it. See the pictures on YouTube or the web site that now has those pictures + His racist manifesto. That man Spits on the American flag, burns it and displays the Confederate flag as his true flag to be adored. So, there it is….these racist MFkers are NOT true Americans. They are in a different mind set. NOT true to the Union. And you SOBs continue to adore the flag that represents DIVISION in the nation. You talk the BS that Obama has created division! ??? NO. Division by you A-Holes has been in the fabric of American culture since 1865 (before) and (after). Sick puppies. Racism is a mental disease. Your poster boy will spend the rest of his life in JAIL! Or, will be executed. How about that? Proceed…..

  4. Can we sue these hate web sites, am hate radio or Fox News for inciting violence and causing death to Americans? Dr. Tiller still hasn’t received due justice since Billo O’reilly gave out his address and said someone should kill him……on air! What can we the people do?

  5. What a miserable little twerp. Put this waste of skin in the general population in a SC prison and see how long he lasts when the majority of the people in the room aren’t older women. Let’s see him use racial slurs with his cellmates. Another keyboard dreamer.

  6. Individuals, or their heirs, have collected in some cases, such as that of Alan Berg. Anglo-saxon jurosprudence doesn’t recognize a civil cause of action for group libel, but where the history and atmosphere make it plain that the libellous speech may trigger imminent violence, the state has the power to criminalize such speech: Beauharnais v. Illinois.

  7. Let’s see what the repug candidates say tomorrow morning on the talk shows:

    Rick Perry on Chris Wallace
    Huckleberry on Meet the Press
    Christie on Stephanopoulos

    And Americas mayor Giuliani on FNC

  8. People who wish to join Isis should be allowed to leave..but snap their Passports so they can never come back.(under no circumstance)

  9. GOP’s fear of a black America: The long, racist history which explains Dylann Roof and stains the so-called “party of Lincoln”

    Dylann Roof’s assault was the latest salvo in the racial struggle we have fought since 1865: Who owns America?

    Dylann Roof’s murder of nine people worshipping at Charleston’s Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church was not about mental illness; it was not about religious freedom; it was not an “accident;” it does not defy explanation. His attack on nine African Americans in a church was a political attack designed to keep the government in the hands of white men. His bullets were a salvo in the fundamental struggle that we have fought bitterly since 1865: Who owns America?
