The Truth About Guns has obtained the "Manifesto" of the Charleston Church active shooter. They have taken the courageous step of publishing it in its entirety. It reveals a mind twisted by racism, but the twisting is not all from racists who hate black people. From the manifesto:
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?I followed and commented on the Trayvon Martin, George Zimmerman case from the start, and anyone who researches it with an open mind will come to the conclusion that George Zimmerman was the victim. The Church Shooter came to the same conclusion. I will not use his name, because I believe that the copycat effect is real, and that many active shooters are produced because of the media's policy of making these twisted individuals into anti-heroes.
Racism breeds Racism. There is an awareness in the United States that black racism is a huge problem. In 2013, a Rasmussen poll showed that 37% of Americans thought that most blacks were racist, while only 15% thought that most Whites were racist. From rasmussenreports.com:
Thirty-seven percent (37%) of American Adults think most black Americans are racist, according to a new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey. Just 15% consider most white Americans racist, while 18% say the same of most Hispanic Americans. (To see survey question wording, click here.)The old media in the United States has, for generations, had the policy of minimizing black crime. The left has adopted the idea that black people cannot be racist by definition, as absurd as that is. When you deny reality, reality has a way of coming back to bite you. Fortunately, only 9% of Americans have accepted the mindnumbing concept that only white people can be racist:
Just nine percent (9%) think racism refers only to discrimination by white people against minorities.No one can know exactly what caused the Charleston Church shooter to do his evil deed. But in his own mind, as related by his words, it was the disconnect between reality and what he had been taught in school and by the media that started the chain of events.
Many have noted that race relations in the United States have become worse during President Obama's time in office. Much of it stems from the President's perceived racism. He has been quick to blame a white person in any circumstance that involves a conflict between blacks and whites. He has fanned the flames of racial strife, and used the conflict to push his policy objectives.
No real "conversation about race" can take place in this country unless it is inclusive of racism that exists in people of all different colors. 37 percent of the population, including 31% of black people, consider "most blacks to be racist". That is a number that cannot be avoided.
Truth cannot be hidden from the majority of people anymore. The days when the old media could control the flow of the vast majority of information to the vast majority of people in the United States are gone. Could the Charleston Church shooting have been prevented if the old media had been truthful about the Trayvon Martin/George Zimmerman case? We will never know.
Preferential treatment of a minority group in the name of "fairness" has resulted in mass violence all over the world. The best scholarly study of this phenomena has been done by Thomas Sowell in his book "Preferential Policies" published in 1990.
