Valdosta State University student Eric Sheppard, who has been on the run since April 21, has put out a violent, 4,700-word manifesto bashing white people and threatening to “annihilate those who come after me.” Sheppard is wanted on weapons charges and for making terrorist threats via social media.
On April 17, Sheppard was videotaped with other black radicals pontificating on race, and using the United States flag as a doormat as part of a protest on campus. He got into a tussle with Air Force vet Michelle Manhart after she snatched the flag away from them in an attempt to prevent its desecration.
The former Playboy model was briefly detained by campus police and banned from the premises after the incident. The following week, when VSU police were performing extra patrols due to the anti-flag protests at the university, they discovered Sheppard’s backpack, which contained a handgun. In addition to that, several alarming videos surfaced of Sheppard telling VSU students on campus about his visceral hatred of white people and the need to “kill our oppressors.”
Meanwhile, Sheppard’s supporters imitated his flag-stomping stunt on Twitter using the hashtag “#EricSheppardChallenge,” photograhping themselves stomping on Old Glory.
In “a rambling, profanity-laced” “memorandum ultimatum” sent to the Valdosta Daily Times this week, Sheppard condemned white people and the local police, and said he will “annihilate” anyone who comes after him.
Via the Daily Caller:
“When my People descend upon [Lowndes High School] and if they are met with even the slightest inclination of resistance by any pale skinned beast or aid they are more than Justified to Take your Head and post it on a stake for the Entire world to See,” Sheppard wrote in his profanity-laced “memorandum ultimatum.”
Lowndes High School in Valdosta will be the site of protests over the Jan. 11, 2013, death of Kendrick Johnson. Johnson, who would have graduated Saturday, was found dead inside of a wrestling mat. It is still unclear whether the death was foul play or accidental.
“Many still question the possibility of my surrendering to the people who call themselves ‘authorities,’” Sheppard wrote. “To give you a simple answer, No. I will not turn myself over to any white man.”
Sheppard, who sports a trimmed beard and is often seen wearing traditional African garb, spoke to his weapons case and condemned the criminal justice system as merely the descendant of slavery.
“Yet I did NOTHING of that Magnitude and My Head has Been Marked for Death,” Sheppard wrote.
“This will Cost You all YOUR Lives……What You say I am “guilty” of is Bringing a Weapon on the Valdosta State University campus, Threatening White People and All who Aid their White Supremacist Structure and Stepping on Your dirty rag that you call ‘Old Glory’. Well it is Us the Victims of the Actions enforced under that Symbol that Will Glorify Our Triumph over Your Sick Race.”
Quoting former Nation of Islam leader and New Black Panther Party chairman, Kallid Abdul Muhammad, Sheppard wrote of whites, “we give them 24 hours to get out of town by sundown.”
“I say, if they don’t get out of town, we kill the white men, we kill the white women, we kill the white children, we kill the white babies, we kill the blind whites, we kill the crippled whites, we kill the crazy whites, we kill the faggots, we kill the lesbians, I say god dammit we kill ’em all,” Sheppard continued.
“If they are white kill ‘em all.”
He also advocated killing “all the old crippled crackkkas.”
In the missive, he proclaimed the superiority of the “Afrikan” people over white European devils.
You All, European Descendants on the Continent and Elsewhere, fit the Definition Perfectly of Devils. No, not a False Spook Devil said to live underground in a fictitious fiery pit but a Devil here on Earth subjecting Afrikan people to a Hellish (Non)Existence.
It is TRUE that Afrikan people are the God Body that gave you, the devils of the planet Earth, a Heaven (Civilization) which before our Presence in Europe was Completely Non-Existent. Not Only are We your Fathers and Mothers Biologically and Genetically in MOST Regards, but we are Also the Fathers and Mothers of Law, Ethics, Morality, Agriculture, Economics, Culture, Spirituality, Art, Mathematics and Every Conceivable High Science in Existence. It was Afrikan People who Pioneered Research and Explorations into these Fields of Knowledge long Before you even began to CRAWL on All Fours Much Less walk Upright and Consume Your Own Babies just to Survive in the Barren Land of Europe. Even your “strongest” argument is weak and poses no threat to Truth.
After reading Sheppard’s ugly and vicious thoughts on race, one might be surprised to know that just over a year ago, an Atlanta-based magazine called Trendsetters was so impressed with him, they featured a glowing profile on the the “maturely independent” “straight A student” who “shines brightly among his peers.”
The magazine’s goal is to “spotlight individuals that are making a positive difference among the masses, and to honor unsung heroes in our society.”
According to the article, Sheppard was enrolled in the university’s bachelor degree programs for a dual major in sociology and African American studies with dual minors in philosophy and economics, and his goal was to “bring all people together through the implementation of self-education methods with an emphasis on self-knowledge.”
The magazine gushed, “when looking towards the future, previous generations can breathe a sigh of relief knowing that young adults such as Eric, with ambition, drive, and mental fortitude, have the skills to take the reins of positive leadership.”
Meanwhile, Valdosta police have warned that Eric Sheppard is considered armed and dangerous. “If you see Eric Sheppard, dial 911.”
