“You’re so hungry after finishing a job. Eat it!”

“After he began shooting, Roof reportedly said, ‘I’ll give you something to pray about.’

In Shelby, the FBI handled Roof’s initial questioning, [Shelby police Chief Jeff] Ledford said. Shelby police’s lone conversation with the mass-murder suspect was about food. Earlier in the day, Roof had bought water and chips at a south Charlotte gas station. Now he was hungry. Police bought him food from a nearby Burger King, Ledford said.

‘He was very quiet, very calm. He didn’t talk,’ Ledford said. ‘He sat down here very quietly. He was not problematic.’”

actionables [Jun. 22 2015]: Because news cameras are apparently only there if looting and protests are mentioned, here are some shots from the march for peace in Charleston yesterday. In case you missed it, thousands marched to Ravenel Bridge, holding hands in prayer and unity. Yet this doesn’t make news, but an interview with the killer’s friend does.

“The white shooter in a rampage killing gets a smiling childhood photo and an uncritical look at how his actions were influenced by the Internet. A black man who saved his own mother from a hail of bullets, though, has his ‘troubled past’ highlighted.”micdotcom

US Nationalist Group Says South Carolina Shooter Had Legitimate Motives / Sputnik International

“The killing of nine African-Americans in Charleston, South Carolina was wrong, but gunman Dylann Roof had some legitimate reasons for his actions, US conservative activist group the Council of Conservative Citizens (CofCC) spokesperson Jared Taylor said on Monday, according to media reports.”

“‘We of course categorically condemn his act, but that doesn't mean his motives weren't entirely legitimate,’ Taylor was quoted as saying by ABC News.

The shooter reportedly relied on the CofCC’s distorted data on African-American rapists to partially validate his actions.

‘Even as we're speaking right now, a white woman is probably being raped by a black man. If we're going to have any kind of honest discussion of race in this country, you're going to have to talk about black-on-white violence.’”

actjustly: This is exactly how white America avoids having any conversations about race. Avoid responsibility for this individual & say that he was everything (mentally ill, a loner, etc.) except racist even though he blatantly states that he is a white supremacist on his website.

Dylann Storm Roof's Website Discovered, With White Supremacist Manifesto and Photos - Little Green Footballs

“The manifesto is here, but since it’s been publicized you may not be able to get through to the site; it’s apparently a low budget shared server and it’s bogging down badly under the heavy traffic. (Here it is at the Internet Archive.)

In any case, the manifesto is a grotesquely racist screed, filled with hatred toward blacks and Hispanics and obsessed with the very common conservative meme of ‘black on white crime.’

Roof credits the white supremacist group called the Council of Conservative Citizens with ‘awakening’ him to ‘black on white crime,’ following the shooting death of Trayvon Martin. And that’s an interesting parallel to Gateway Pundit Jim Hoft, who has also used the CCC website as a source numerous times for his racist blog posts.

The website of the Council of Conservative Citizens is apparently offline today, and that’s probably not just a coincidence.”
