Dylann Roof

Attends White Knoll High School


Roof attends the White knoll High School, in Lexington, SC, which has a mix of white and black students. Many of Roof’s Facebook friends are black. He is described as a “kind of wild” student, however not an outcast, and not bullied:  Schoolfriend:

He used drugs heavily a lot. It was obviously harder than marijuana. He was like a pill popper, from what I understood. Like Xanax, and stuff like that…

On racist speech:

I never heard him say anything, but just he had that kind of Southern pride, I guess some would say. Strong conservative beliefs. He made a lot of racist jokes, but you don’t really take them seriously like that. You don’t really think of it like that.
