Book Description

In Rise of the Black Serial Killers: Documenting a Startling Trend, Justin Cottrell expels the myth that serial killers in America are predominantly white. On the contrary, after sifting through a myriad of newspaper records and books, he's compiled a list of murderers that is equal to or greater than the number of white serial killers from 1860 to present. Few if any have ever heard any of their names or stories, until now. Based on his findings, white serial killers have been underrepresented throughout American history when compared to the percentage of the population they represent by a factor of 1.79 on average. On the other hand, black serial killers have been overrepresented 2.68 to 7 times their portion of the population, with a 150-year average of 4.18. Another startling trend he uncovered is that black serial killers have never represented less than 26.83% of the number of serial killers in a given decade, despite their overall percentage of the population never exceeding 13.1%. This trend has steadily increased to the point that in our current decade that they represent 88.24% of the number of serial killers apprehended since 2010, yet only account for 12.6% of the populace.
Aside from trends, this book offers reasons most people assume black serial killers don't exist--from the media prohibition on the subject, to general misunderstandings. Coupled with this is a look into the various factors that breed serial killers, with a look into why black serial killers are on the rise, while white serial killers are on the decline.
To prove his research is valid, a full list of every black serial killer is provided, along with a brief description of their crimes. In addition to this, the biographies of 35 of these killers are given, with detailed information about their crimes.

Editorial Reviews


"The Rise of the Black Serial Killer is thoroughly-researched and powerful refutation to a heinous lie against European Americans.  This book is more than information; it is ammunition." 
-James Edwards
Host of The Political Cesspool Radio Show

"Justin Cottrell has daringly confronted America with a willfully-ignored truth - Negro serial killers exceed their Caucasian counterparts in both numbers and body count.  He has laid waste to the White-hater's cherished myth that serial murder is a peculiarly White sociopathy." 

-Winston Smith
Co-Host of The Political Cesspool Radio Show

By Ben
For those who have any doubts whatsoever about the motivations or methodologies of the author, he vanquishes all doubts in no time, explaining clearly how he arrived at criteria for what constitutes a serial killer and how much he verified all his sources. Most people will see this book, think, "BLACK serial killers? What a racist!", and move on without giving his intense research a single other thought. But the book is well-worth the read. When you learn of the horrors that befell the victims -- including an alarming proportion of white victims -- you will not want to write this book off. You will learn not only of the startling number of black serial killers, but also of the awful and repugnant media bias in censoring coverage of these crimes, which is criminal in itself. Justin Cottrell has done a magnificent job in exposing this alarming trend, and anyone who has an ounce of moral concern for the victims (or potential victims) will want to deeply consider these facts and their implications.

5.0 out of 5 stars The end of a tragic myth August 22, 2014
By TWalker
The end of a myth. Clearly the time has come for America to understand how the media has duped us all into thinking serial killings (and other devious crimes) are a white problem. More specifically the media and experts lied to make us all think it was a white male problem. Why is this so important? The myth of serial killers being white has caused untold damage and hatred against white men. The tragedy is that the media perpetrated this hideous lie for decades.

We see the truth now is that white men are less likely to be serial killers than black men. We also see that black serial killers are much more likely to be killing white victims, particularly white women. There is a race war going on but it is the opposite of what we are being taught in classrooms, the news and TV.

How many murderers got away? How many rapists still get away? How many pedophiles get way with devious crimes because we are told these things are things white people do? I have studied this topic for many years because I knew these things long ago and I knew what I saw on the news did not add up to reality.

Other crimes the media tells us are committed by white males: pedophilia, sex crimes, white collar crimes, slavery, genocide and on and on.
This is a left wing (primarily) war against white people, white men specifically to generate hatred and produce even more crimes against white people. The black on white rape rates alone are human rights violations on a level unparalleled in history and yet the media doesn't even mention it. Have you ever heard talk of black on white rape rates in America on the evening news? Hundreds of white females are raped by black men each week in America. Where is Amnesty International on this?

5.0 out of 5 stars Good book but just couldn't continue. September 29, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I have read through one third of this book but had to stop. It just got me so upset that I couldn't continue. I myself have been the victim of three violent crimes all committed by young black males. And just on the date of my writing this review, another black serial killer appears to have been exposed. This one in connection with the disappearance of the female UVA student. Forensic evidence connects him to the murder of a Virginia Tech student. We also had the rape and murder of Maggie Daniels here in NC by a smirking black male, and the robbery and murder of UNC Chapel Hill Student President Eve Carson by two black male. When will it stop? Never.
I'll stop here, because I think that even Amazon would have to censor additional comments I might write.

4.0 out of 5 stars It's in the Numbers April 24, 2014
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This book establishes these surprising facts:
1. Since Emancipation, there have been numerous black serial killers in the United States.
2. Comparing decades since 1860, black serial killers have never been less than 26% of all American serial killers.
3. In the early decades of the 20th Century, black serial killers comprised the majority of American serial killers and, since the year 2000, have comprised over 80%.
4. Over 58% of American black serial killers murdered outside their ethnicity, compared to 5.9% of American white serial killers who did.
5. One third of American black serial killers exclusively slew whites.
The above facts are so surprising to so many for two principal reasons. One is the popular-culture belief, fueled by faulty criminal profiling, that only whites possess the mental makeup to be serial killers. The other reason is that the news media, fueled by overzealous political correctness, seldom inform the public about black serial killers. These problems are examined in the first two chapters.
The bulk of the book is composed of crime-trend statistics, lists of suspects, felons, and victims, 35 biographies, and over 100 pages of criminal profiles of individuals, duos, and gangs. Dispersed throughout the narrative are around 55 small black-and-white photos of the killers.
Though it obviously lacked the best editing, this book is written in generally smooth prose with good punctuation and very few typos. There are numerous endnotes, a bibliography, and an index.
For anyone interested in the subject of black serial killers, this work is a handy, well organized resource. For the public in general, it can be a vital eye-opener.

More About the Author

I grew up in the plains of Oklahoma, watching red-tinted dust-devils swirl up into blue skies while listening to the old-timers tell the outlaw tales of old. Partially due to the rich stories of which I was fond, and partially due to my innate curiosity, I have never been able to stop digging up stories and learning about history. This journey has taken me to explore the interconnected paths of history, science, and true crime. The journey has been a rich one, full of surprises around every corner. But whenever I think that I have scaled the peaks of understanding, I realize my journey has just begun.

I have had many people ask what my qualifications are, so, in short, here they are. As for formal university training, I have little to none. As a man who was blessed with a family at a young age, higher education was not a path before me; instead, I was on one to provide for my family. This did not discourage me from learning or from schooling myself (though some may ask if that is even legal!). As a result, I have been collecting college-level textbooks for nearly two decades--from basic ones to upper-level Ph.D. courses, on all topics, including a healthy selection of historical and scientific books. But not wanting to have a cookie-cutter knowledge base that most universities punch out, the bibliophile in me has taken to collect a wealth of books, some new, some ancient, to give me a proper understanding of the subjects that interest me. This has allowed me to paint a much more detailed picture of history, one that does not merely put together random bits and pieces, but rather gives a complete view of all history--not only my own race's history, but the history of all races and cultures.

When exploring the history of the world, it did not take long before my interest in crime transformed from a minor curiosity to a significant part of my studies. The one thing that helped fuel this desire was the steady increase in crime over the past two hundred years in America. At first, I was interested in the causation and in trying to find possible solutions. This soon led me to track trends across different demographics without fear of what politically incorrect implications that might produce. Along the trail, someone asked me why serial killers were always white. This opened up another trail, which eventually led to the publication of this book.
