    Kind of hard to perpetuate the false narrative about racism when the professional race baiters cannot interfere with people of all races coming together.

    I just pray that if the ZERO, JJ, or Sharpton try to make an entrance in Charleston, that they all have an extreme bout with gout, knee weakness and/or multiple flat tires en route to jinx their attempt at politicizing this like Ferguson, Baltimore, et al.

    STAY AWAY, S.C. DOES NOT NEED YOUR KIND OF HELP!!!!

    So the overwhelming aspect of a White racist killing Blacks en masse, for you anyhow, is that people of different "races and colors" mourned? Why?

    Maybe you should go back a reread what I said.

    Caleb Brown a young African American lives in Houston grew up with the suspect. They were best friends, Caleb says they even spent the night with each other as young boy's and he says Roof was not the way he seems. He feels that something occurred recently to drive roof to shoot these folks.

    Here's the link.

    I see we've moved straight into the "he had a black friend" portion of denying racism.
    Rev, you seem like a sweet guy, and maybe it is that deep down sweetness and faith in humanity that makes it hard to believe the degree of racism still present in society today.
    Allow me to point out a few things that have stood out to me, as I'd like to hear your thoughts on them.

    1. The man-hunt for this guy was pretty insignificant in proportion to the act of terrorism committed.

    2. Clear photos from video and vehicle info was slow to be released in light of when it was first available.

    3. The personal photos of the murderer, when they hit the Internet, were lovely studies of the subject in thoughtful poses.

    4. His mental health quickly became a very possible motive.

    5. His prior criminal history was not discussed.

    Do you see anything in this list that you think would be different if the suspect was Black?

    I don't deny racism. I have seen it and been victim to it. My son was held against the wall while other kids threw rocks at him because he was white. The problem I see is that it is being exploited and over stated for political purposes. In the mean time while such incidents are being exploited while Americans of all races do come together gets ignored because it destroys the political narrative.

    That is chicago style community organizing politics.

    Prejudice and racism has come about through many centuries. It will continue because racism is like many other things a sin. The point is that something in this young man changed and turned him. Many even on this board want to say it was his upbringing and having African American friends while growing up shows upbringing was most likely not a part of his turning. Something else triggered it. Others want to say it was right wing Christian conservatives, yet all of us who are conservatives denounce this type of racism and prejudice.

    Racism exist today in both the caucasion, Jewish, African American and Asian cultures. It occurs because of the Old Sin Nature in mankind. I existed in Jesus' day and one disciple was guilt of it even before he was called. John 1 shows us Nathanael who said "can anything good come out of Nazareth?"

    Nathanael met Jesus and his prejudice was conquered. That is what it will take around the world to conquer this until the Lord comes back and His Kingdom comes there will be racism.
