Nashville shooter Audrey Hale wrote about the desire to "kill all you little crackers" because of their white privilege according to a leaked manifesto from Hale, who opened fire on a private Christian school in Tennessee earlier this year, killing six people.

"Kill those kids!!! Those crackers going to private fancy schools," Hale wrote in one page of a notebook, pictures of which were published by conservative commentator Steven Crowder on Monday. 

The notebook has been authenticated but the material published is selective, according to The Tennessee Star, one of the news agencies that sued the FBI earlier this year for access to the memo. 

On a page dated Feb. 3, 2023, Hale wrote: "Wanna kill all you little crackers!!! Bunch of little f*gg*ts w/ your white privlages [sic]."

In an entry on March 27, 2023, the day of the shooting, Hale wrote about being "excited for the past 2 weeks" and hoping to "have a high death count."

Hale, 28-year-old biological female, signed the entries in the notebook under the name "Aiden." Hale died the day of the shooting when police came on the scene.
