The black ex-Marine who killed three #BatonRogue cops and wounded six more went by another bizarre name, Cosmo Ausar Setepenra, and left a long digital rabbit trail showing he was obsessed with race, Africa, and police shooting black criminals.
Despite his Marine service, his website Convos With Cosmo showed he saw Africa as his “ancestral homeland.” Not America:
After completing an Associate’s degree in General Studies at Central Texas College, Cosmo then attended Clark Atlanta University to further his education. After a year and a half at Clark Atlanta as a dean’s list student, he had a spiritual revelation that resulted in him dropping out of college, selling his two cars, giving away all of his material possessions, packing two suitcases and journeying to Africa—his ancestral homeland.
While in Africa, Cosmo’s spiritual journey took him across Rwanda, Ethiopia, Uganda, Kenya, Tanzania, Egypt, Ghana and Burkina Faso. During that time he frequented the highly treasured and revered mountainous regions of Africa and was taught by Africa’s native spiritual practitioners and elder holistic healers. While there, Cosmo authored and published three books– http://www.cosmoglobal.org/
One of his books promised to show readers the “untold science of Melanin.”

Gavin Long’s focus on alpha males and “disrespect” were tied to his belief that the police were waging a genocidal war on black people.
Here’s his Twitter handle, @ConvosWithCosmo, where he said “violence isn’t THE answer (its a answer):”
Violence is not THE answer (its a answer), but at what point do you stand up so that your people dont become the Native Americans…EXTINCT?

These were his last two tweets:
Don't let someone get comfortable with disrespecting you.

Just bc you wake up every morning doesn't mean that you're living. And just bc you shed your physical body doesn't mean that you're dead.

“More white people believe in ghosts than racism,” he also tweeted.

On July 8, a Lance Scurvin posted a message from “Brother Cosmo” on the LanceScurv Show Facebook page instructing followers to save his YouTube videos “just in case anything happens,” since the mainstream media “loves to assassinate the righteous Mans character:”
“I just want everyone to know that if anything may happen to me or with me, I am NOT affiliated with anybody, any group, nationality, association, religion, corporation, business, etc.
Yes I am apart of many, groups, businesses, and even a different nationality (Sovereign) but I am not affiliated. I Just want to make this crystal clear. I have no affiliations to no one, I think my own thoughts and make my own decisions. I am influenced & directed internally NOT externally.
Also If you guys have time, I have videos on my youtube channels that you guys can save to your computer just in case anything happens. Because of course the mainstream news loves to assassinate the righteous Mans character.”
The mainstream media and Obama repeatedly combine the rash of cop murders with police shooting black criminals. It’s clear they see this as a race war.
Did their coverage and Obama’s patronizing speech to police at the Dallas service give the green light to cop killers convinced that the police are keeping the black man down?
Long also made an emphatic video one day after the Dallas police massacre to state he was not affiliated with any cause: “This is very important and I wanted to let y’all know, if anything happened to me, because I’m an alpha male, I stand up, I stand firm, and I stand for mine. To the end. To the last day in this flesh.”
“Don’t affiliate me with nothing.”
“I’m affiliated with the spirit of justice. Nothing more and nothing less.”
“I thought my own thoughts. I made my own decisions. I’m the one who gotta listen to the judgment. That’s it. And my heart is pure.”
