In a 23-page fax to ABC News and a follow-up call, both after the attack, the man identified himself as Vester Flanagan and as Bryce Williams. He said he suffered racial discrimination and bullying at work and was attacked for being black and gay.
As in the Dylan Roof shooting, we have a “manifesto” claiming a clear racial motivation, with the added progressive hot button issue of “homophobia.”
But it would be ill-advised to hold one’s breath waiting for the media to do much analysis on the racial motivations or to demand LGBT rainbow flags be banned from public spaces.

A presumably Black commenter on the video says that White people just need to “forgive” the shooter and that it’s “shameful” that some Whites have responded with “hatred and racism” instead of “sympathiz[ing] with his issues,” thus proving we aren’t “good human being[s].”
White people need to open their hearts and forgive. It’s shameful that they responded to this with hatred and racism. white people have been telling black people for years to forgive and show dignity in the face of violence by them. Now it’s time for them to practice what they preach. Forgive the disgruntled employee with ‘mental’ issues and sympathize with his issues.. Otherwise, you’re not a good human being.When the Charleston shooter’s purported manifesto was discovered, blogger Henry Raciot immediately claimed Roof acted out of sexual jealousy, suggesting that the South Carolina schools that Roof attended were hotbeds of miscegenation and illustrated the point with imagined, yet high detailed, lurid stories of Blacks boys “pawing” White girl “in the hallways.” A few days later, a curious story appeared on Glenn Greenwald’s site, The Intercept, where a Black reporter claimed to have interviewed “Scott Roof, who identified himself as Dylann Roof’s cousin” and said a girl had “snubbed” Dylann for a Black boy.
No confirmation, or even a second source, were ever reported, placing the story squarely in the realm of “not journalism” and hearsay, although the claim was repeated in a handful of news sources. Greenwald’s The Intercept is the publication created to manage the damaging Edward Snowden leaks by downplaying the most significant part of the NSA revelations, that the major internet companies like Google, Facebook, and Microsoft were working closely with the NSA. But the source itself has no significance and even noticing the provenance is a “conspiracy theory.”
On reddit, a poster suggesting that the video looks “fake” was immediately downvoted to invisibility, and told to “fuck back off to /r/conspiracy.”
The pattern is clear. White violence against Blacks is due to innate racist hate, likely caused by White men’s jealousy of the superior sexuality of Black men and White women’s supposed preference for Black men (unless White women prefer White men, then it’s simply more proof of enduring White racism.) Black violence against Whites is simply retaliation for racism, and in this case, also White homophobia against gay Black men.
It’s only hate when Whites do it.
Even more importantly, the media never lies and suggesting they do is a “conspiracy theory” and proof of the doubter’s “crippled epistomology” mandating “cognitive infiltration” by the government.
