Manifesto of Charleston shooter Dylann Roof, who shot dead 9 in church

Below is a copy of the written manifesto of Dylan Roof, copied from his reported website (http://lastrhodesian.com/data/documents/rtf88.txt) on June 20, 2015. His website appears to have been since taken down. The New York Times reports the website was registered on Feb. 9 and “was last modified at 4:44 p.m. Eastern time on Wednesday, the day of the Charleston shootings.”

———————————————————–

I was not raised in a racist home or environment. Living in the South, almost every White person has a small amount of racial awareness, simply beause of the numbers of negroes in this part of the country. But it is a superficial awareness. Growing up, in school, the White and black kids would make racial jokes toward each other, but all they were were jokes. Me and White friends would sometimes would watch things that would make us think that “blacks were the real racists” and other elementary thoughts like this, but there was no real understanding behind it.

The event that truly awakened me was the Trayvon Martin case. 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. But more importantly this prompted me to type in the words “black on White crime” into Google, and I have never been the same since that day. The first website I came to was the Council of Conservative Citizens. There were pages upon pages of these brutal black on White murders. I was in disbelief. At this moment I realized that something was very wrong. How could the news be blowing up the Trayvon Martin case while hundreds of these black on White murders got ignored?

From this point I researched deeper and found out what was happening in Europe. I saw that the same things were happening in England and France, and in all the other Western European countries. Again I found myself in disbelief. As an American we are taught to accept living in the melting pot, and black and other minorities have just as much right to be here as we do, since we are all immigrants. But Europe is the homeland of White people, and in many ways the situation is even worse there. From here I found out about the Jewish problem and other issues facing our race, and I can say today that I am completely racially aware.

Blacks

I think it is is fitting to start off with the group I have the most real life experience with, and the group that is the biggest problem for Americans.
Niggers are stupid and violent. At the same time they have the capacity to be very slick. Black people view everything through a racial lense. Thats what racial awareness is, its viewing everything that happens 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 wouldnt be thinking about race. The other reason is the Jewish agitation of the black race.
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.
Say you were to witness a dog being beat by a man. You are almost surely going to feel very sorry for that dog. But then say you were to witness a dog biting a man. You will most likely not feel the same pity you felt for the dog for the man. Why? Because dogs are lower than men.
This same analogy applies to black and White relations. Even today, blacks are subconsciously viewed by White people are lower beings. They are held to a lower standard in general. This is why they are able to get away with things like obnoxious behavior in public. Because it is expected of them.
Modern history classes instill a subconscious White superiority complex in Whites and an inferiority complex in blacks. This White superiority complex that comes from learning of how we dominated other peoples is also part of the problem I have just mentioned. But of course I dont deny that we are in fact superior.
I wish with a passion that niggers were treated terribly throughout history by Whites, that every White person had an ancestor who owned slaves, that segregation was an evil an oppressive institution, and so on. Because if it was all it true, it would make it so much easier for me to accept our current situation. But it isnt true. None of it is. We are told to accept what is happening to us because of ancestors wrong doing, but it is all based on historical lies, exaggerations and myths. I have tried endlessly to think of reasons we deserve this, and I have only came back more irritated because there are no reasons.
Only a fourth to a third of people in the South owned even one slave. Yet every White person is treated as if they had a slave owning ancestor. This applies to in the states where slavery never existed, as well as people whose families immigrated after slavery was abolished. I have read hundreds of slaves narratives from my state. And almost all of them were positive. One sticks out in my mind where an old ex-slave recounted how the day his mistress died was one of the saddest days of his life. And in many of these narratives the slaves told of how their masters didnt even allowing whipping on his plantation.
Segregation was not a bad thing. It was a defensive measure. Segregation did not exist to hold back negroes. 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 level of brute animals. The best example of this is obviously our school system.
Now White parents are forced to move to the suburbs to send their children to “good schools”. But what constitutes a “good school”? The fact is that how good a school is considered directly corresponds to how White it is. I hate with a passion the whole idea of the suburbs. To me it represents nothing but scared White people running. Running because they are too weak, scared, and brainwashed to fight. Why should we have to flee the cities we created for the security of the suburbs? Why are the suburbs secure in the first place? Because they are White. The pathetic part is that these White people dont even admit to themselves why they are moving. They tell themselves it is for better schools or simply to live in a nicer neighborhood. But it is honestly just a way to escape niggers and other minorities.
But what about the White people that are left behind? What about the White children who, because of school zoning laws, are forced to go to a school that is 90 percent black? Do we really think that that White kid will be able to go one day without being picked on for being White, or called a “white boy”? And who is fighting for him? Who is fighting for these White people forced by economic circumstances to live among negroes? No one, but someone has to.

Here I would also like to touch on the idea of a Norhtwest Front. I think this idea is beyond stupid. Why should I for example, give up the beauty and history of my state to go to the Norhthwest? To me the whole idea just parralells the concept of White people running to the suburbs. The whole idea is pathetic and just another way to run from the problem without facing it.
Some people feel as though the South is beyond saving, that we have too many blacks here. To this I say look at history. The South had a higher ratio of blacks when we were holding them as slaves. Look at South Africa, and how such a small minority held the black in apartheid for years and years. Speaking of South Africa, if anyone thinks that think will eventually just change for the better, consider how in South Africa they have affirmative action for the black population that makes up 80 percent of the population.
It is far from being too late for America or Europe. I believe that even if we made up only 30 percent of the population we could take it back completely. But by no means should we wait any longer to take drastic action.

Anyone who thinks that White and black people look as different as we do on the outside, but are somehow magically the same on the inside, is delusional. How could our faces, skin, hair, and body structure all be different, but our brains be exactly the same? This is the nonsense we are led to believe.
Negroes have lower Iqs, lower impulse control, and higher testosterone levels in generals. These three things alone are a recipe for violent behavior. If a scientist publishes a paper on the differences between the races in Western Europe or Americans, he can expect to lose his job. There are personality traits within human families, and within different breeds of cats or dogs, so why not within the races?
A horse and a donkey can breed and make a mule, but they are still two completely different animals. Just because we can breed with the other races doesnt make us the same.
In a modern history class it is always emphasized that, when talking about “bad” things Whites have done in history, they were White. But when we lern about the numerous, almost countless wonderful things Whites have done, it is never pointed out that these people were White. Yet when we learn about anything important done by a black person in history, it is always pointed out repeatedly that they were black. For example when we learn about how George Washington carver was the first nigger smart enough to open a peanut.

On another subject I want to say this. Many White people feel as though they dont have a unique culture. The reason for this is that White culture is world culture. I dont mean that our culture is made up of other cultures, I mean that our culture has been adopted by everyone in the world. This makes us feel as though our culture isnt special or unique. Say for example that every business man in the world wore a kimono, that every skyscraper was in the shape of a pagoda, that every door was a sliding one, and that everyone ate every meal with chopsticks. This would probably make a Japanese man feel as though he had no unique traditional culture.

I have noticed a great disdain for race mixing White women within the White nationalists community, bordering on insanity it. These women are victims, and they can be saved. Stop.

Jews

Unlike many White naitonalists, I am of the opinion that the majority of American and European jews are White. In my opinion the issues with jews is not their blood, but their identity. I think that if we could somehow destroy the jewish identity, then they wouldnt cause much of a problem. The problem is that Jews look White, and in many cases are White, yet they see themselves as minorities. Just like niggers, most jews are always thinking about the fact that they are jewish. The other issue is that they network. If we could somehow turn every jew blue for 24 hours, I think there would be a mass awakening, because people would be able to see plainly what is going on.

I dont pretend to understand why jews do what they do. They are enigma.

Hispanics

Hispanics are obviously a huge problem for Americans. But there are good hispanics and bad hispanics. I remember while watching hispanic television stations, the shows and even the commercials were more White than our own. They have respect for White beauty, and a good portion of hispanics are White. It is a well known fact that White hispanics make up the elite of most hispanics countries. There is good White blood worht saving in Uruguay, Argentina, Chile and even Brasil.

But they are still our enemies.

East Asians

I have great respent for the East Asian races. Even if we were to go extinct they could carry something on. They are by nature very racist and could be great allies of the White race. I am not opposed at all to allies with the Northeast Asian races.
Patriotism

I hate the sight of the American flag. Modern American patriotism is an absolute joke. People pretending like they have something to be proud while White people are being murdered daily in the streets. Many veterans believe we owe them something for “protecting our way of life” or “protecting our freedom”. But im not sure what way of life they are talking about. How about we protect the White race and stop fighting for the jews. I will say this though, I myself would have rather lived in 1940’s American than Nazi Germany, and no this is not ignorance speaking, it is just my opinion. So I dont blame the veterans of any wars up until after Vietnam, because at least they had an American to be proud of and fight for.
An Explanation

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.

Unfortunately at the time of writing I am in a great hurry and some of my best thoughts, actually many of them have been to be left out and lost forever. But I believe enough great White minds are out there already.

Please forgive any typos, I didnt have time to check it.

Ohio woman who’s half-Jewish, half-Arab, files lawsuit against federal agencies for arrest, strip-search on 9-11-2011

Shoshana Hebshi, a half-Jewish, half-Arab woman from Ohio, filed lawsuit against federal agencies after being pulled off plane and strip-searched

Published: Tuesday, Jan. 22, 2013

A 36-year-old Ohio woman who is half-Jewish and half-Arab filed a lawsuit today against the FBI and other federal agencies, saying she was yanked off an airplane at Metro Airport on the 10th anniversary of the Sept. 11 attacks, strip-searched, and jailed more than four hours in a dirty cell because of her ethnic background.

The American Civil Liberties Union filed the lawsuit Tuesday in Detroit on behalf of Shoshana Hebshi of Sylvania Ohio, who was on a Frontier Airlines flight that landed in Detroit on Sept. 11, 2011. She and two Indian-American men sitting in her row were targeted by federal agents who entered the plane, ordered them off the plane, handcuffed them, and pushed them down the stairs into vehicles, Hebshi said.

She was then placed in a cell, where she was ordered to strip naked, squat, and cough while an officer looked at her. Hebshi said she was terrified.

“I was frightened and humiliated,” said Hebshi, a freelance journalist and mother of 7-year-old twins. “As an American citizen and a mom, I’m really concerned about my children growing up in a country where your skin color and your name can put your freedom and liberty at risk at any time.”

At the time, Hebshi’s case drew international attention, leading to reports from the Guardian to The Economist that raised questions about the profiling of minorities in the U.S. Hebshi told the Free Press on Tuesday that she hopes the lawsuit can lead to changes and “heightened awareness” of abusive law enforcement.

Hebshi and the two men were detained after people on the plane complained about two of them going to the rest room. Flight attendants had alerted the pilot that the men going to the rest room were “possibly of Arab descent,” the lawsuit said.

After landing, “men with very large guns, militaristic looking, ran on the plane,” Hebshi recalled.  Continue reading

Anti-Islam rally last year that attracted Quran-burning pastor was organized by singer of anti-Muslim rock band

The gunman in the Sikh temple shooting Sunday was part of the white power music scene and led a racist band, according to the Southern Poverty Law Center.  In Michigan, there is an anti-Muslim rock band whose singer had organized an anti-Islam rally last year outside the Islamic Center of America in Dearborn.  After meeting with Dearborn officials, he decided  not to rally at the mosque, but later rallied at Dearborn City Hall.

Here’s an article from last year on it:

A rally that Quran-burning Pastor Terry Jones plans to attend Friday outside a Dearborn mosque was first organized by a Marlette man who has controversial views about Islam.

“It’s just a perverse ideology, ” Frank Fiorello, 35, told the Free Press. “There’s nothing holy about the Quran. It just preaches violence.”

After meeting last week with Dearborn officials, Fiorello has pulled out of the rally. It was his plans that drew the attention of Jones. In 2008, Fiorello formed a Michigan group to speak out against Shari’a and jihad. Called the Order of the Dragon, it refers to a group in the Middle Ages that fought against Muslim Turks.

On his Facebook page, Fiorello talks about violence, saying “danger and death are but my playthings.” A rock band he plays guitar in, Crude Legacy, has anti-Muslim rock songs he posts on his group’s Web site.

In one song, the band declares, “We’ll hack through Turkish flesh and bone, watch the minarets fall down.” In another, “Mosque of terror, minarets in flames, they bring the horrors, so we’ll do the same.”

Fiorello once wrote that the prophet Muhammad was a “madman.” Another time, he wrote: “I want to throw a pig head into a Friday prayer night at ye ole mosque of terror.”

But Fiorello said in an interview: “We’re a peaceful group…. I don’t want to see Muslims get attacked.”

Growing number of Sikh males in U.S. cutting hair, removing turbans; Some confused for being Muslim

Note: In light of the shooting today at a Sikh temple near Milwaukee, here is a story from last year I wrote for the Detroit Free Press that explains some of the challenges the Sikh community faces.

Growing Sikh community struggles for acceptance

By Niraj Warikoo

Free Press Staff Writer

2/5/2011 – Page 1A, Detroit Free Press

Sitting in the barber’s chair, TejKiran Singh was torn. As a Sikh man, he had never cut his hair and kept it wrapped in a turban. But, tired of the laughs and insults from others, he decided to cut it in 1999.

For months afterward, he was wracked with guilt. “I didn’t sleep well for a really long time, ” Singh, 47, recalled.

So in 2005, he decided to again grow his hair and beard and wear a turban, in keeping with Sikh traditions. Singh’s challenges are reflected across metro Detroit as the Sikh community grows.

In recent months, the community of roughly 2,000 metro Detroit families has gotten increased attention after a Sikh student in Canton was found with a kirpan, a small religious dagger, in school, prompting the district to enact a new policy this week. While schools have made accommodations for other faiths, this is thought to be the first case involving a Sikh kirpan in metro Detroit.

As with some Jewish men wearing kippahs and Muslim women wearing hijab, the unique appearance of Sikh men has made them targets. But Sikhs say it’s worse for them because so many are unfamiliar with Sikhism.

Inside a Sikh temple in Canton on Thursday night, the melodious words of a priest praising God in Punjabi could be heard. Outside, a sign reads: “God is One.”

————————–

Kanwal Singh couldn’t take it anymore.

For about a year, the Canton teenager had tried living in metro Detroit wearing a turban over his uncut hair – as mandated by his Sikh faith.

But the stares and insults were too much.

“Terrorist!” Singh remembers some students in his high school blurting out at him. And so, in 2007, he got his hair cut and shaved his beard – one of many Sikh boys and men who are giving up their articles of faith to avoid discrimination and harassment. Singh and others say a majority of young Sikhs in metro Detroit have cut their hair out of fear.

“You get a haircut because you want to fit in, ” Singh, 19, said Thursday evening inside the Gurdwara Sahib Singh Sabha of Michigan. The Sikh temple (gurdwara) in Canton is the biggest in Michigan.

The challenges faced by Singh and others come as the Sikh community grows in metro Detroit, home to about 2,000 Sikh families.

The community came into the spotlight in recent months after controversy erupted over a fourth-grade Sikh student who brought a religious dagger to school in December. Initiated Sikhs are required to wear the dagger – called a kirpan. The kirpan, which was tucked inside his clothes, accidentally fell out while the 10-year-old boy was on the playground. Some parents voiced concerns about a weapon being brought to school. It’s believed to be the first such case in metro Detroit, though similar disputes have arisen in other U.S. cities.

The Plymouth-Canton School District initially banned the kirpan, but, on Monday, established a new policy that allows Sikh students to carry the daggers, albeit with restrictions. The kirpans must not exceed a certain length, must be kept in and tied to a sheath, and must be hidden under clothing.

“It’s to follow my religion, ” the fourth-grade boy said of his kirpan.

Misunderstanding over dagger

Like other young Sikhs, he keeps his long hair bundled on top in a knot covered by a piece of cloth known as a patka; when the boys get older, turbans replace the patkas.

“Some kids make fun of my hair, ” the boy said inside the Canton temple. “What’s that on your head? It’s weird, ‘” he said other kids say to him. “I just ignore them.”

The misunderstanding over the kirpan – which symbolizes the idea of protecting good – and of turbans and beards comes from a lack of knowledge about Sikhism, local Sikhs say.

“People don’t even know who we are, ” said Jaspal Neelam, 44, of Troy. “When they see the turbans and beard, right away, the association is some sort of terrorist organization. A lot of time, people just think you’re Muslim.”

In India, the turbans and beards that Sikhs wear are well known, and so not a problem. But in the U.S., they have attracted hateful attacks.

After the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks, one of the first men to die in a backlash hate crime, Balbr Singh Sodhi, was a Sikh man shot dead in Arizona by a man targeting people he thought were Middle Eastern.

To avoid harassment, some Sikh men keep their hair long, but go outside wearing baseball caps instead of turbans.

Still, the community’s visibility is increasing as it has opened several centers that feature morning and evening prayers, along with weekend services that draw the biggest crowds.

There are now seven gurdwaras in southeastern Michigan, in addition to centers in Kalamazoo, Lansing and Grand Rapids.

Oases of tranquility

To help inform the public about the faith, the Sikh community held an open house at Singh Sabha last Sunday, and it plans to hold another one this Sunday at Gurdwara Sahib Hidden Falls in Plymouth Township. Sikh gurdwaras are oases of tranquility, places where they come to reconnect with the Lord, known as Waheguru. On the wall inside Singh Sabha, a large sign reads:

“Sikh Religion. One, in whose heart there is love, he attains salvation.”

As Thursday’s evening prayers neared completion, Gurmeet Kaur, 67, of Canton talked about the community’s changes. She and her husband immigrated to metro Detroit from India in 1974, one of the first Sikh families here.

“People looked at us like we were aliens, like we are from another planet, ” Kaur said. “But we didn’t give up.”

Kaur recalls her husband being told he wouldn’t be hired because of his turban, and her 5-year-old son would come home in tears because of teasing at school. He refused to go back to school at one point, and so they got his hair cut. He never grew back his hair.

With the growth of the community, there’s now a support network. And the opening of the Canton gurdwara in 2008 has given the community a point of pride.

“It’s very peaceful here, very peaceful, ” Kaur said. “I can’t explain the feeling.”
