The suspect accused of plowing into a Christmas parade in Waukesha, Wisconsin and killing five on Sunday shared social media posts promoting violence towards white people.

Today, eight-year-old Jackson Sparks was named by relatives as the sixth victim, having died in hospital from his injuries.

A now-deleted Facebook account belonging to Darrell Brooks Jr., 39, showed the alleged killer had encouraged knocking ‘white ppl [the f**k] out’ and also appeared to support the controversial Black Hebrew Israelites.

Brooks was charged on Tuesday with five counts of first-degree intentional homicide and is expected to face more charges.

Police are yet to determine the motive behind the deadly rampage, however, records reveal Brooks is a career criminal with a rap sheet dating back to 1999 and had been bailed twice this year.

Facebook posts also show the amateur rapper, who went by his stage name, MathBoi Fly, had shared a series of links and memes relating to race and white privilege in June 2020, when protests erupted over the death of George Floyd.

Five of the six victims – all white – who died on Sunday were aged 52 to 82 and part of a Waukesha club known as the Dancing Grannies.

On June 9, 2020, Brooks wrote: ‘LEARNED ND TAUGHT BEHAVIOR!! so when we start bakk knokkin white people TF out ion wanna hear it…the old white ppl 2, KNOKK DEM TF OUT!! PERIOD..’ followed by a middle finger and expletive emoji.

He also shared an article from ESPN that same day about NBA player Kyle Kuzma breaking down ‘his belief of what white privilege’, to which Brooks commented: ‘interesting’.

Brooks had also shared a post about a white cop being ‘violent towards peaceful protestors’, six days earlier.

The posts are among several that have emerged in the wake of his arrest after allegedly driving his red Ford SUV in a crowd of kids and elderly dancing groups during a Christmas parade in the Milwaukee suburb.

Brooks’s troubling track record has raised questions as to why he had been allowed on the streets and his motives.

Among the brow-raising social media posts that surfaced on Tuesday is a meme about Adolf Hitler and the identity of the ‘real Jews’.

The graphic – posted on November 2015 – claimed negros are ‘the true Hebrews’ and that America had moved ‘false white Jews into a state of Israel’.

The post seemed to promote the views of the Black Hebrew Israelites who believe African Americans are literal descendants of the Israelites in the Bible.

Brooks had shared the meme with a caption ‘#research’ and commented: ‘real game rite here’.

Brooks made his initial appearance in court Tuesday. He could be heard crying during the proceeding, leaning over with his head nearly in his lap, with his attorney resting a hand on his back.

He was charged with five counts of intentional homicide. Conviction on first-degree intentional homicide carries a mandatory life sentence, Wisconsin’s stiffest penalty.

Prosecutors also confirmed a sixth person, a child, has died and more charges are pending.


The amateur rapper has a long criminal history dating back to 1999 with more than 15 arrests in the state of Wisconsin alone for charges including possession of drugs, strangulation and suffocation, battery, illegally possessing firearms as a convicted felon and resisting arrest.

On November 2, he was arrested on domestic violence charges after trying to ‘run over’ his ex, the mother of his child, at a gas station. His bond was set at $1,000 and he posted it on November 11th.

Earlier on Monday, the shamefaced Milwaukee District Attorney’s Office admitted it was ‘inappropriate’ for Brooks to be allowed out of jail on a $1,000 bond three weeks ago after trying to run over his ex-girlfriend, as he was charged with five counts of murder for the lives he took at the Waukesha Christmas Parade on Sunday night.

The Milwaukee County DA’s Office released a statement admitting the $1,000 bail was ‘inappropriately low’ given his criminal history. They said they’d launched an internal review as to why he was able to get out on bond to commit more crimes.

It has also emerged that Brooks, an amateur rapper who is also known by his stage name MathBoi Fly, is a convicted sex offender.

In 2006, he was convicted in a Nevada court for statutory rape after he had sex with a 15-year-old girl. Brooks was 24 years old at the time of his conviction.

The girl ended up pregnant and gave birth to Brooks’ child. The legal age of consent in Nevada is 16.


His motive for Sunday’s attack remains unclear; police will not confirm whether it was a deliberate act of terror or if Brooks accidentally ran into the crowds after losing control of his car while fleeing a knife crime.
