In a Facebook post he’s trolling for hookers—
Chris Harper Mercer was mixed race.
He may have been a Black Lives Matter supporter but this is just speculation at this time.

Mercer was a 26 year-old.
The governor said he was student at the college.
Mercer had three guns.
The shooter was 1 of 10 people killed in the shooting, the FBI said.
The shooter asked students to “STAND UP AND STATE YOUR RELIGION!”
Umpqua Killer Asked Students “Stand Up and State Your Religion!”
He was targeting CHRISTIANS!
The New York Post reported:
“The shooter was lining people up and asking if they were Christian,” she wrote. “If they said yes, then they were shot in the head. If they said no, or didn’t answer, they were shot in the legs. My grandma just got to my house, and she was in the room. She wasn’t shot, but she is very upset.
The Twitter user then recalled how her grandmother attempted to save the life of one of her close classmates.
“She tried to perform CPR on her friend, but it was too late,” the woman said. “I hope nothing like this ever happens again.”
Kortney Moore, an 18-year-old student at Umpqua Community College who was also in the room, told Oregon’s News Review that the shooter was indeed on the hunt for Christians.
Moments after hearing a bullet come flying through a window, she said the 20-year-old shooter made his way inside and targeted their teacher, pumping a single round into their head.
As the young man ordered people to the ground, Moore laid patiently with her classmates and waited, according to the News Review.
Once they all got down, she said the gunman began asking people to rise and say what their religion was. After they stood and gave their answer, he started shooting.
