In Alabama: White Supremacist Teen plotted to Kill Students, Particularly Black kids

As the day ends, here is some sad news. 17 year-old Derek Shrout plotted to kill at least 6 six students and a teacher at his High School.

Here's more
According to WSFA, Shrout admitted to being a dedicated white supremacist and he may have also been a member of an organized Neo-Nazi group. Five of the six students that were named in his notebook were African-American.
“He has a lot of pent up anger towards blacks,” added the police chief. 
WTVM interviewed fellow classmates who felt that the suspect’s behavior was different prior to his arrest. 
“He was confident, well-rounded, but as time went by, he was doing the whole white power thing,” said senior class president, David Kelly, in an interview with WTVM. “In the hallway, at breakfast, at the lunch tables, after school where we have our bus parking lot, he’d have his big old group of friends and they’d go around doing the whole white power crazy stuff.” 
Kelly also mentioned that Shrout would frequently give Nazi salutes to people at school.

I'll bet he learned that shit at home. No one just becomes like that. His parents ought to be ashamed of themselves.

They ruined their son's life.

n 1946, the Nobel Prize-winning physicist traveled to Lincoln University in Pennsylvania, the alma mater of Langston Hughes and Thurgood Marshall and the first school in America to grant college degrees to blacks. At Lincoln, Einstein gave a speech in which he called racism “a disease of white people,” and added,“I do not intend to be quiet about it.” He also received an honorary degree and gave a lecture on relativity to Lincoln students.

I went to graduate school at Auburn University, which is apart of the Columbus, Georgia-Phenix City, Alabama area. There are a number of whites in that region that are very good about hiding their racial animus against blacks and others of color, but comes out in the most unique ways.

This boy is obviously a product of this environment. I'm so glad to be done with that area because he isn't alone, but he is only that has acted on it.
