A new stash of photos of #CharlestonShooting suspect Dylann Roof along with a copy of his “manifesto” found on a website have been all over social media today. The Charleston Police Department and the FBI have issued a joint statement letting the public know that, yes, they are aware of the information.

Among the most widely disseminated photos is one of Roof setting fire to an American flag.


There are other photos as well which don’t lend themselves to the dreaded selfie-stick, which is leaving many people asking, “Who took the photos?” And is this someone black Americans in particular should be worried about too?


Again, the FBI and Charleston police say they’re aware of the photos, so let’s hope they answer this question soon.
