Before Dylann Roof walked into a historically black church in Charleston, South Carolina, shooting and killing 9 people, the 21-year-old put together a disturbingly racist manifesto and published it online via the domain lastrhodesian.com.
The domain for the website, which was revealed Saturday (Jun 20), was first registered in early February under the name “Dylann Roof.” A Reverse Whois lookup on domaintools.com shows that the website was indeed registered by Roof.
The bizarre text published on the website essentially confirms Roof’s ridiculous political aims and white supremacist beliefs, and also reveals what sparked those radical beliefs.
“The event that truly awakened me was the Trayvon Martin case,” Roof writes. “I kept hearing and seeing his name, and eventually I decided to look him up. I read the Wikipedia article and right away I was unable to understand what the big deal was. It was obvious that Zimmerman was in the right.”
He goes on: “Niggers are stupid and violent. Black people view everything through a racial lense. They are always thinking about the fact that they are black. This is part of the reason they get offended so easily, and think that some thing are intended to be racist towards them, even when a White person wouldn’t be thinking about race.”
He adds: “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.”
The site also contains about 60 photos of the 21-year-old, in which he is seen proudly waving the Confederate flag, spitting on and burning the American flag, posing next to Confederate landmarks and menacingly pointing a pistol towards the camera.
A number photos also show Roof posing in what is commonly referred to as the “jail house pose.
Other pictures show Dylann posing at plantations and ancient burial grounds of African ancestors, and in several of the photos, Dylann can be seen wearing a jacket bearing the flag of the white supremacist state of Rhodesia.
One photo shows Roof posing on a beach next to the numbers “1488” drawn in the sand — a white supremacy encryption that stands for “We must secure the existence of our people and a future for white children” and “Heil Hitler.”
Roof ended his 2,400+ word racially charged manifesto with this:
To take a saying from a film, “I see all this stuff going on, and I dont see anyone doing anything about it. And it pisses me off.” To take a saying from my favorite film, “Even if my life is worth less than a speck of dirt, I want to use it for the good of society.”
I have no choice. I am not in the position to, alone, go into the ghetto and fight. I chose Charleston because it is most historic city in my state, and at one time had the highest ratio of blacks to Whites in the country. We have no skinheads, no real KKK, no one doing anything but talking on the internet. Well someone has to have the bravery to take it to the real world, and I guess that has to be me.
