Forgiveness doesn't mean that what he did was OK... It's not really about him at all. Forgiveness is something we do for ourselves, so we can lay down the anger we feel over what happened and continue living, without carrying around the hatred in our hearts.
“The weak can never forgive. Forgiveness is the attribute of the strong.”

I personally think that the first step of the solution, is to force the Pharmaceutical Companies to pull some of these psychotropic meds off the market...
If everyone makes this atrocity into a Confederate revival incident, then Dylann Roof's alter ego wins. At best its a schizophrenic break, and at worst, its a deliberate "false flag", to bring the "roof" down on the South Carolinian rednecks, who remind him of his excuse for a father.
I would classify him as someone committing a psychological Patricide, rather than being any White Racist.

The O.P. and most of the replies on this thread are full of it. This crime isn't what it appears to be. Mr. Roof has about 80 Face Book friends, half of whom are blacks.
I was not raised in a racist home or environment. Living in the South, almost every White person has a small amount of racial awareness, simply beause of the numbers of negroes in this part of the country. But it is a superficial awareness. Growing up, in school, the White and black kids would make racial jokes toward each other, but all they were were jokes. Me and White friends would sometimes would watch things that would make us think that “blacks were the real racists” and other elementary thoughts like this, but there was no real understanding behind it.
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?
From this point I researched deeper and found out what was happening in Europe. I saw that the same things were happening in England and France, and in all the other Western European countries. Again I found myself in disbelief. As an American we are taught to accept living in the melting pot, and black and other minorities have just as much right to be here as we do, since we are all immigrants. But Europe is the homeland of White people, and in many ways the situation is even worse there. From here I found out about the Jewish problem and other issues facing our race, and I can say today that I am completely racially aware.
I think it is is fitting to start off with the group I have the most real life experience with, and the group that is the biggest problem for Americans.
Niggers are stupid and violent. At the same time they have the capacity to be very slick. Black people view everything through a racial lense. Thats what racial awareness is, its viewing everything that happens through a racial lense. They are always thinking about the fact that they are black. This is part of the reason they get offended so easily, and think that some thing are intended to be racist towards them, even when a White person wouldnt be thinking about race. The other reason is the Jewish agitation of the black race.

The Lesson from South Carolina

I wonder, Mr. Love, do you own guns?
Would this Love that you are promoting dictate for you to kill another human being in defense?
If so, I would say that your message of "Love" isn't as genuine as you would like us to believe.
