I noticed that you didn’t say the same about the early slave uprisings/massacres of innocent defenseless whites which coincided with the push for emancipation....play the video in the first comment.
The AME hurch has been behind all the rioting and mayhem in places like Sanford, Ferguson, Baltimore, etc., and Roof’s attack coincided with the anniversary of a black slave uprising/slaughter of whites led by Denmark Vesey who also helped found the AME church. Roof knew what he was doing.
I have no reason to comment on irrelevant events of over 150 years ago. Why on earth wouldn’t people enslaved and forced to labor often to death to benefit white masters want vengeance against them? Wouldn’t you? Unfortunately vengeance tends to end in atrocity, whether in the case of Turner or Roof, and is an unacceptable policy.
What I hope you will consider is that the blacks stirring things up in Ferguson, etc., carefully nourish a sense of historical grievance and crisis to justify themselves. So Roof mirrored that, and raised his consciousness to a boiling point of irrational, very counterproductive violence. Whites do themselves no honor by taking the Mein Kampf route. That is not to say that honest evaluation of crime stats and social dysfunction does not reveal bleak realities, or that the current political trend towards untruth is sane, or that we should not resist the organized effort to destroy civilization.
Do you know how many whites were slaughtered in Vesey's uprising?
Do you know how many blacks were executed in retaliation?
