Dylan Roof

We are taught at an early age to love one another despite the color of skin. Some kids don’t grow up in that type of household. They are taught to hate those of any other skin color but your own. Dylan Roof was a disturbed individual, who while he did not grow up with that hate being taught, acquired it after an incident in the news. Dylan lived in Charleston, SC. He grew up having black friends, but still had a sense of difference between whites and blacks. After hearing Travon Martin’s name repeatedly, he decided to look up the incident and that is when the hate poured out of him with every ounce of passion inside him. He believed that blacks look through a “lens”, where all they see is people using their race against them.
