Among the members of /r/coontown, the manifesto’s author has found a sympathetic ear. One user wrote, “If this is the real deal…he’s no different from me, really.”

Two Twitter users, Henry Krinkle and Emma Quangel, have apparently discovered Dylann Roof’s manifesto and it is unsurprisingly filled with incredibly racist thoughts.

I’ll publish a few excerpts, and if you want to read the whole thing, you’re certainly free to do so here. I wouldn’t necessarily recommend it. The reason I (and several other sites) are doing so is because there seems to be a lot of willful ignorance surrounding Roof’s actions Wednesday night. Plenty of people and several notable politicians are choosing to pretend they don’t know that the killing of nine black people in a historically black church with the killer explicitly stating he did so to start a race war was a racially motivated act. This will make it really hard for anyone to deny that now.

Interestingly enough, Roof claims that it was the Trayvon Martin incident that led him down a path of militant white supremacy.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

The site also contained a .zip file filled with pictures of Roof holding or being in the general vicinity of the Confederate flag. So, anybody still wanna argue these killings weren’t racially motivated?

The white supremacist document is finding a sympathetic ear in the depths of Reddit’s racist /r/coontown community.

The diatribe wanders from a discussion of the “historical lies, exaggerations, and myths” of slavery to outlining disdain for Latinos and Jews. It concludes by saying, “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.”

/r/coontown’s discussion on the manifesto has elicited a degree of sympathy and understanding from the subreddit’s members.

“If this is the real deal…he’s no different from me, really,” wrote one redditor that received dozens of upvotes. “Except for that shooting up a church thing, that is.”

The user has left more than 30 comments in /r/coontown since Wednesday, the day of the Charleston massacre.

Another redditor who has posted in /r/coontown more than 50 times since the shooting quipped, “one of us, one of us.”

In the manifesto, the author credits the shooting death of Trayvon Martin and subsequent Google searches about “black on White crime” for leading to the author being “truly awakened.”

“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?” the manifesto’s author wrote.

“Wasn’t it for most of us?” a redditor ponders, the contentious Confederate flag nestled between their user name and the comment’s 41 upvotes. In the last month, the user has posted several times to a subreddit dedicated to “ironically” calling for violence against Jews.

Other redditors chimed in to agree.

“Yep, it was the turning point for me as well. 100%,” read a reply that garnered as many as 27 upvotes before being deleted.

Reddit’s ongoing perception problem and the struggle to cull toxic communities was revisited earlier this month after the site banned several subreddits for violating its anti-harassment policies.

“Our goal is to enable as many people as possible to have authentic conversations and share ideas and content on an open platform,” the June 10 announcement read. “We want as little involvement as possible in managing these interactions but will be involved when needed to protect privacy and free expression, and to prevent harassment.”

In a subsequent comment, the company’s interim CEO Ellen Pao explained that Reddit is “banning behavior, not ideas.”

Angry redditors wondered why communities such as /r/coontown were allowed to continue existing.

The largest of the banned communities, /r/FatPeopleHate, had over 150,000 members when it was closed, easily dwarfing /r/coontown’s 15,000 subscribers. The four other banned communities had less than 5,000 subscribers.

“We did this incrementally so we could manage the response with our limited resources,” a Reddit representative explained to BuzzFeed News.

Meanwhile, some users distraught over /r/FatPeopleHate being banned have flocked to an “anything goes ” Reddit imitation site called Voat. On Thursday morning, a link submitted to the site’s version of /r/Coontown declares that “cross-site recruitment is a must.” The link leads to the white supremacist website Stormfront.
