Hate Group Named in Charleston Gunman Manifesto White supremacist groups use the Internet to spread hatred of black people. Some of their leaders also back Republican politicians. A case in point is a website that might have been Dylann Roof's call to action. In an online manifesto attributed to him, Roof – who has been charged with last week's murders of nine black people in a historic church in Charleston, South Carolina -- says he learned of "brutal black on white murders" from the website of the Council of Conservative Citizens .
