JOHANNESBURG - A website apparently giving a glimpse into the mind of Charleston massacre shooter, Dylann Roof, has surfaced on the internet.

The website contains photos and a 2,500 word manifesto filled with racist diatribes.

In the manifesto, Roof writes about his hatred of black people beginning with the Trayvon Martin case which led him to visit white supremacists websites, which wrote about Black-on-White crime.

At the bottom of the page there is an option to download pictures of Roof in a number of poses including one of him wearing a jacket with the South African apartheid-era flag.

CNN's Aliana Mochados said, "He is in custody, making it difficult to authenticate if he really is the author of this manifesto. But we know the website appears to have been launched in February, but it just surfaced online and on social media today."

Yesterday, a judge in South Carolina set bail for Roof at $1 million.

The 21-year-old gunman, who killed nine people in a church on Wednesday, was arrested 14 hours after he opened fire in the Mother Emanuel Church in Charleston.
