Charleston suspect killer Dylann Roof's 'racist manifesto' found online

A website that appears to be the extremist manifesto of Dylann Roof, the man charged with the murder of nine black people at a church in South Carolina, has been found.

The 'Last Rhodesian' website appears to be the work of 21-year-old Roof and contains several racist rants, supposedly outlining his hatred towards black people, Jews, and Latin Americans.

Pictures on the site show the suspect posing with a handgun and standing in front of a Confederate military musuem and a former slave plantation house.

The chilling text also says that the killing of 17-year-old Trayvon Martin by George Zimmerman in 2012 as "the event which truly awakened" the writer of this grim online manifesto.

"I hate the sight of the American flag,” a section of the site reads. “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.”

The site also says:

Much of the language and other views on the website is too offensive for ITV News to publish.

The website also has a chilling conclusion, in which the writer provides a strange explanation for the killings in Charleston earlier this week:


ITV News has been unable to fully verify the authenticity of the site, but online records show that it was first registered to a 'Dylann Roof' in February.

It has also been reported that the site's metadata was last updated on 17 June - the day of the shooting at the Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church.

The Guardian also reports that the FBI are to investigate the site.
