    well he also has a ton of black facebook friends from his hometown...



    These ****ing psychos make no sense sometimes. /facepalm
    Except they DO make sense. They are wired wrong. They are mentally ill. That is likely the case with this one too. He will have previous signs that went unnoticed. I wonder if his Facebook shows signs?

    You seem to be convinced that mental illness is what causes political extremism rather than people who willfully embrace extremist politics and thus separate from reality and then mentally ill. As I told you previously in some cases it could well be the way you see it and in other case it could be the other way around.

    You want to invoke science on your side? Fine. Present your scientific findings. All I am doing is asking questions looking for the answers. If you have them, present the evidence for those answers and it will be welcomed.

    Quite frankly, I strongly suspect that some folks here want to protect their own turf and don't want these things explored for fear of the consequences.

    Checked out his fb page and friends pages. Couple things. His page is private but a few of his friends are posting screenshots since they can see it. They are also posting other pics.

    A lot of the people didn't really know him.

    Quite a few of the black friends he has, many didn't know him, but lived nearby or went to his school. Many of them have white girlfriends or pics of them with white girls. Most of his female friends who are white have pics with black guys.

    I am thinking, just my opinion based off the fb digging, either some girl left him for a black guy, or some girl rejected him and is dating a black guy.

    I find it remarkable that some here are fixated on attaching a political ideology to a violent act as if political ideologies are inherently violent or any individual who adheres to a political philosophy is susceptible to violence as a result. What different cultures we live in. Here in Canada, a mass murder's political ideology would never even be of passing interest let alone the focus of analysis or investigation.
    A Canadian conservative is one who believes in limited government and that the government should stay out of our wallets and out of our bedrooms.

    Why are some here obviously afraid of answering the questions as to what made this man this so extremely racist that he would this?

    Answer that and wisdom will follow.

This one incident alone shows how wrong they are.

    This is a good example (assuming the shooting was racially motivated) of why hate crime laws are best described as anti-domestic terrorism laws.
    Out of curiosity, if every single injustice, actual or imagined, against a black person is considered to be a sign of racial antipathy then how are we ever going to overcome this perceived disparity? People no longer seek solutions to racial issues. They only seek to use every incident to press their sociopolitical agenda.

    Lmao, aren't you the guy who attached a video of black kids fighting to an entire race of people? Yeah, I doubt anybody on the other side of the isle cares about what you find remarkable as far as painting with wide brushes goes.

    This is a terrible tragedy for my home state. Everyone I've talked to his morning can't talk about anything else. This is about the worst thing that's happened here since the serial killer in my area murdered five in a row a few years back. It's just horrible.

    Finding out one of our State Senators was among the dead was like being hit with a hammer.


    Naturally everyone wants to know why... at the same time we fear the answer is probably going to be racial hatred of some kind. We know that, despite how far things have come and how much has changed in the past 50 years, some will use this event to point at our state and proclaim us all racists. WE know better, but that won't stop the media from playing it to the hilt.


    Regardless of the motivation, this is just terrible to all of us. At first all I heard was "church shooting" and didn't know where... I had peeps who were late getting back from Wednesday night prayer service and feared the worst until I heard it was in Charleston. Still didn't feel at ease after that, as I have kin there, but so far no word that anyone I know personally was harmed. Yes, I'm white (ish) but have some mixed-race cousins who could have been there.


    This is a terrible thing. I'm so glad the guy was caught quickly. You look at his picture and wonder if anyone who knew him ever thought "That kid is going to do something really stupid and awful one day."

    The shooter literally told his victims "You rape our women and are taking over country." He literally took a picture of himself wearing a jacket with the flag of white supremacist Rhodesia and the flag of apartheid South Africa sown into it. Anybody bending over backwards to pretend that this was not a racist attack is a ****ing psychotic apologist. What makes their stupidity even worse is that even though they are reluctant to call this single individual a racist, they would be more than eager to brand the entire black population violent if one black person committed a a similar crime and eager to brand the entire Muslim population violent if one Muslim committed a similar attack.
