New York subway train shooter Frank James was a militant Black Nationalist who posted about Black Jesus, Nation of Islam and Fidel Castro

Frank James (62), who carried out a mass shooting on a New York subway train during rush hour, was caught and charged with terrorism on April 13. Ten people were shot and wounded in the attack, and over a dozen more suffered other injuries. US Police sources said that he himself was the likely source of the tip to a police hotline that led to his capture. 

James used the surname Whitaker on social media, and his social media messages portray a disturbed man. Amidst posts containing Black extremist rhetoric, support for Black Lives Matter (BLM) and talk of an impending race war, James posted things like “O black Jesus, please kill all the whiteys”.

In other posts, he made references to shooting and killing people and putting them in body bags.

He also posted the Nation of Islam (NOI) founder Elijah Muhammad’s image on social media with the text ‘Messenger of Allah’. NOI is a religious and political organization founded in the United States by Wallace Fard Muhammad in 1930. It identifies itself as promoting a form of Islam, and although some of its beliefs differ considerably from mainstream Islamic traditions, it never rejected the violent aspects of orthodox Islam. Critics consider NOI as a hate group and a black supremacist organization.

Elijah Muhammad was a black separatist and self-proclaimed Messenger of Allah, who led NOI from 1934 until his death in 1975. He was also the teacher and mentor of Malcolm X, Louis Farrakhan, Muhammad Ali.

James even posted messages in support of Communism and Cuba’s late communist dictator Fidel Castro –

He also ranted against whites, Jews, Latinos, and, sometimes even fellow African Americans. One of his targets was New York mayor Eric Adams for his campaign against crime and to move homeless people out of the subway train stations and trains.

James spoke about Russian President Vladimir Putin, Ukraine President Volodymyr Zelenskyy and the war in Ukraine, comparing the crisis there to a race war he said would play out.  

“It’s just a matter of time before these white motherf****** decide, ‘Hey listen. Enough is enough. These n****** got to go,’” he said.

“And what’re you going to do? You gonna fight. And guess what? You gonna die. ‘Cause unlike President (Zelenskyy) over in Ukraine, nobody has your back. The whole world is against you. And you’re against your f****** self. So why should you be alive again is the f****** question. Why should a n***** be alive on this planet? Besides to pick cotton or chop sugar cane or tobacco.”

Ten people were injured in the gunfire, five of them critically, and at least 13 others were hurt from smoke inhalation when he had set off a smoke canister before opening fire on a train and in the chaos that followed.

Surveillance cameras spotted James enter the subway system on the morning of the shooting, dressed as a maintenance worker in a yellow safety hat and orange coveralls with reflective tape. He left behind at the scene the gun used in the shooting, magazines containing unused bullets, an axe, detonated and undetonated smoke grenades, a black garbage can, a rolling cart, petrol, and the key to a U-Haul van, police said. In the smoke and chaos that ensued, James slipped away and boarded a train going in the opposite direction, and exited after the first stop.

Investigators said that James was arrested 12 times from 1990 to 2007. He was charged with theft, possession of burglary tools, criminal sex act, trespassing, and disorderly conduct. Since he was never convicted, James was able to buy all the guns and the ammunition that he wanted. Police raided his apartment and found more ammunition, including machine guns, a taser, and a blue smoke canister.

Mayor Adams was critical of the social media companies who, he said, “had some responsibility.” “Why we’re watching these postings and these threats every day, and no one is giving an early warning sign to law enforcement,” he told CNN.

James’s Twitter and Facebook posts have been taken down, but Rolling Stone magazine said that they included videos with headlines like “To kill or not to kill.” In one video, he said that 9/11, when terrorists struck New York City and the Pentagon, was “the most beautiful day in the history of this country,” according to Rolling Stone.
