Dylann Roof is a 28 year old virgin[1] who shot and killed 9 random African-Americans in a church, in order “to spark a race war”. He did so possibly because a white woman he was interested in began dating a black man.[2] He is currently in jail and was sentenced to the death penalty, meaning he will also likely die a virgin.

Dylann Roof was diagnosed with mixed substance-abuse disorder, and took psychiatric-forms of opiates and benzodiazepines such as Suboxone and Xanax.[3] Newly unsealed records also mention that Roof took an unnamed SRI drug.[4][5] Another record shows that Dylann took repeated doses of the SRI drug citalopram, brand-named Celexa, for anxiety in 2009, as a minor at the age of 15.[6]

Snubbed woman[edit]

According to Scott Roof, who was Dylann Roof’s cousin:

Dylann kind of went over the edge when a girl he liked started dating a black guy two years back
Dylann liked her. The black guy got her. He changed. I don’t know if he would be here if not…
—Scott Roof

This, if true, is somewhat similar to Elliot Rodger’s racial psychology, after all Rodger said in his manifesto:

How could an inferior, ugly black boy be able to get a white girl and not me? I am beautiful, and I am half white myself. I am descended from British aristocracy. He is descended from slaves. I deserve it more.
—Elliot Rodger[7]

Wishful thinking[edit]

He exhibited extreme wishful thinking, in that he thought that he would spark a race war that would ultimately let him out of jail.[8]


The state of North Carolina decided to kill Dylann, and since 2017 Dylann has been awaiting execution by North Carolina. He has filed an appeal to the state, saying that the state should not kill him.[9]
