A racist manifesto and a collection of photos suspected to have been written and posted by alleged Charleston church shooter Dylann Roof was discovered by activists online.

On Saturday morning, two Twitter users – Emma Quangel and Henry Krinkle – found what is believed to be the 21-year-old’s website, titled “The Last Rhodesian.” The online activists used the Reverse Whois search on domaintools.com to find the site registered under Roof’s name.

The site’s name is a reference to an unrecognized state in Africa, in a region that is now Zimbabwe, during the 1960s and ’70s that was controlled by a white minority.

White supremacists have idealized this era and the Rhodesian flag has been used as a racist symbol.

The rambling text says that the event that “truly awakened” its author was the fatal shooting of Trayvon Martin. It describes what appears to be Roof’s racist ideology and motivations for allegedly killing nine African-Americans at the Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church.

Along with the diatribe, the website contains a downloadable .zip file of 60 photographs.
