*The Dylann Roof situation in South Carolina is deeper, creepier and scarier by the moment.
Now comes word that word that a manifesto appearing to belong to Roof has surfaced online.
Now, we’ll see if certain Republicans presidential candidates and Fox News will stop playing games and admit the that the slaughter of 9 people at a church in Charleston, SC was racially motivated.
It seems the site detailing the writer’s racist stances, especially concerning his views on African-Americans, was created by someone with Roof’s name and media reports surfaced Saturday morning after Twitter users @HenryKrinkle and @EMQuangel discovered the site.
The site details a number of racist stances. The text reads:
“The event that truly awakened me was the Trayvon Martin case,” and goes on to say, “Black people are racially aware almost from birth, but White people on average dont think about race in their daily lives. And this is our problem. We need to and have to.”
The manifesto, according to International Business Times, goes on to use racial epithets and is about 2,400 words long. The manifesto (warning: very offensive content) was found on a site that through a Whois search was confirmed to have been created in February 2015. Gawker confirmed through a reverse Whois search that the site was registered to someone using Roof’s name.
Dylann Storm Roof, 21, was charged with nine counts of murder on Friday after he allegedly shot and killed nine people in the historically black Emanuel AME Church in Charleston.
