Judge for Dylann Roof’s bond hearing once used ‘N-word’ while in court

Dylann Roof’s racist massacre is not an act of a single person who hated Blacks. It stems from a racist mentality that continues to exist in South Carolina. The state continues to fly the Confederate flag, which is a subliminal act of terrorism within itself.

But another shocking aspect of the case is that the judge who presided over Roof’s bond hearing also has a racist past. According to South Carolina’s Supreme Court, Judge James B. Gosnell used the ‘N-word’ while in the court room in 2003. While talking to a Black defendant, Gosnell said, “There are four kinds of people in this world, black people, white people, red necks, and n—-.”

Gosnell was disciplined, but was allowed to continue serving as judge. But it shows the level of racism that Blacks must face everyday in South Carolina when a racist mass murderer is being judged in court by another racist.

Gosnell also caught flack for having sympathy for Roof’s family. It’s a poor decision considering the investigation is ongoing and it’s possible that Roof’s family could have played a role in the killings.

Roof will appear in court on Oct. 23.

    Well, Hip hop rappers use term continuously tell us is there difference. Same old illogical nonsense of
    regression limited interest ask those decrying. Racism are you prejudice what have done empower yourself and civil rights. Not a damn thing another sell judge use derogatory if majority. Accept the slang this considered cool without schools smoke blutt and 40% say this Black! N word Black males endure struggles career success USA there called homosexual. Thug trash whom jail bail whom into male anal dates! Not to late even if judge use term accepted non Blacks use all time. Hip hop goal deter those independent minds USA historical resent especially Blacks men. Minds recommend keep striving ignore apathy you beat. Not intelligence ambition your not criminal never change. Do many a favor stay away civil rights don’t have strength. Combat entrenched racial indifference N word Hip hop main word a joke! Whore,Bitch,Punk Brotha thinks White BOY,Ms.Lady,Olde Gee and Hey my Nigga this respectful salutation to many whom identify with heritage. Awaking now gentrification corporations deciding whom going enjoy pleasures economically. USA laugh Hip hop losing influencing with minds!
