ANGRY WHITE MALE


The facts about Dylann "Storm(front)" Roof speak for themselves:

At twenty-one years old, introverted, withdrawn, a loner and a drug user, looking like an emaciated Macaulay Culkin, Roof had exhibited deviant social behaviour and was twice arrested, once for trespassing and once for a drug charge (Buprenorphine was the drug listed in some accounts). Roof came from a broken family; he was unemployed, and probably from a low-socioeconomic background. He seemed to lack a proper support network and social circle – which caused him to feel isolated, hopeless, lonely, frustrated, and daunted by an uncertain future.

From the testimony of friends and survivors of his homicidal "lashing out" at an AME Church in Charleston, South Carolina, and from other sources of information – including photographs of him wearing apartheid era patches – Roof apparently espoused ‘white supremacist ideology.’ Reportedly he told one of the survivors, “I have to do it. You rape our women and you’re taking over the country.”

"Just give me your gun and no-one will get hurt."
President Obama, for the umpteenth time since he has been in office, has held a press conference to denounce another race-motivated national tragedy, he also placed the guilt upon the availability of firearms: “Once again innocent people were killed in part because someone who wanted to inflict harm had no trouble getting their hands on a gun.”

Let us examine gun ownership figures by country. Comparatively, the United States has 19.1% more firearms per 100 residents then the number two country Serbia, but that does not account for the almost 2.5 times higher homicide rate by firearms between the nations.

Compare these figures from the Guardian with what Time magazine says about Switzerland
Switzerland trails behind only the U.S, Yemen and Serbia in the number of guns per capita; between 2.3 million and 4.5 million military and private firearms are estimated to be in circulation in a country of only 8 million people. Yet, despite the prevalence of guns, the violent-crime rate is low: government figures show about 0.5 gun homicides per 100,000 inhabitants in 2010. By comparison, the U.S rate in the same year was about 5 firearm killings per 100,000 people, according to a 2011 U.N. report…Unlike some other heavily armed nations, Switzerland’s gun ownership is deeply rooted in a sense of patriotic duty and national identity… One of the reasons the crime rate in Switzerland is low despite the prevalence of weapons — and also why the Swiss mentality can’t be transposed to the current American reality — is the culture of responsibility and safety that is anchored in society and passed from generation to generation.
There you have it, it’s not guns that kill people but American society that does. American society is murder. From the same article.
“Social conditions are fundamental in deterring crime,” says Peter Squires, professor of criminology and public policy at the University of Brighton in Great Britain, who has studied gun violence in different countries and concluded that a “culture of support” rather than focus on individualism, can deter mass killings.
Let us examine these insights from Switzerland and apply them to the ill-conceived facts about Dylann Storm Roof and America today. America cannot be Switzerland precisely because America lacks a national identity. Black America in particular represents this historical fracture in America being unable to achieve a national identity. The original conception of the American Melting Pot was the melting together of the ethnic groups of Europe to form an American identity – not unlike Switzerland itself, today comprised of a population which includes 65% German, 18% French, 10% Italian and 1% Romansh. America, like Switzerland, initially had no interest in including Negroes, Asians or Native Americans as a part of its national identity:
“It was called the Melting Pot, and it was given on the Fourth of July in an automobile town where many foreign-born workers are employed… They wore their native costumes; they were singing their national songs: they danced their folk dances and carried the banners of Europe. The master of ceremonies was the principal of the grade school dressed as Uncle Sam. He led them to the pot. He directed them up the steps to the rim, and inside.”
Public Opinion, Walter Lippmann
The history of slavery and the bitterness, resentment, entitlements, hatreds, micro-aggressions etc. are only one part of this fracture. The other part is racial difference. Blacks are so radically different from whites in physiological, biological, and behavioral terms, as well as cultural and historical ties, that to bridge the two together as one nation and a single people is outright ridiculous. The temporary illusion that it can work is only facilitated by a hearty dose of white guilt and ethnomasochism. The arch-federalist and slave liberator Abraham Lincoln well understood these insurmountable differences:
“I am not, nor ever have been, in favor of bringing about in any way the social and political equality of the white and black races, that I am not, nor ever have been, in favor of making voters or jurors of negroes, nor of qualifying them to hold office, nor to intermarry with white people; and I will say in addition to this that there is a physical difference between the white and black races which I believe will forever forbid the two races living together on terms of social and political equality... I will add to this that I have never seen, to my knowledge, a man, woman, or child who was in favor of producing a perfect equality, social and political, between negroes and white men.”
America's self-actualization forever on hold.
Considering Blacks and other minorities as inconsistent with this historical understanding of what it is to be American, Dylann Storm Roof’s supposed claims that Blacks (and other non-White minorities) are taking over the country is well substantiated by the stats of the changing racial demographics of America, something that has non-Whites celebrating.

Blacks represent the historical division in America, more so than Jews, who managed to blend into a greater American identity fairly easily, even though they also continued to pursue their own ethnic agendas. Blacks thus represents the main racial fracture that displaces and convolutes a unified American identity. This is an additional reason why America opts for individualism rather than “a culture of support,” something that is also genocidal to its silent and dwindling founding majority, which can only lash out in violent and unpredictable ways from its most marginalized members who understand the raw fact of their own dispossession.

Roof’s other claim that Blacks are raping our women is also a well documented fact:
“Because interracial rape is now overwhelmingly black on white, it has become difficult to do research on it or to find relevant statistics. The FBI keeps very detailed national records on crime, but the way it presents rape data obscures the racial element rather than clarifies it. Dr. William Wilbanks, a criminologist at Florida International University, had to sift carefully through the data to find that in 1988 there were 9,406 cases of black-on-white rape and fewer than ten cases of white-on-black rape. Another researcher concludes that in 1989, blacks were three or four times more likely to commit rape than whites, and that black men raped white women thirty times as often as white men raped black women.” 
While his methods were cruel, his targets ill-chosen, and his mentality driven by a disgruntled, confused. and possibly drug-induced rage – his perception of an unbridgeable racial chasm that can only resolve itself in the victimhood of one of the groups involved was spot on.

If all Whites should have to answer for Roof’s actions, then all Blacks should answer for not heeding the call back to their homeland of Africa, and for being the eternal fracture and anti-catalyzing force that prevents the realization of a true American identity based on the union of brotherhood with our fellow European descendants.
