Editorial Reviews

Review

"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

From the Back Cover

In Rise of the Black Serial Killer, Justin Cottrell expels the myth that serial killers in America are predominantly white. With a myriad of newspaper records and books, he has compiled a list of black serial killers that is equal to or greater than the number of white serial killers from 1860 to the present. Few, if any, have ever heard any of their names or stories until now.

This study contains a full list of every black serial killer and a brief description of their crimes. A biography on thirty-five of these black serial killers is given in addition, along with detailed information about the crimes of each.

The author offers reasons why most people assume black serial killers don't exist--from media suppression to common 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.

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.

Format: Paperback
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.

I would recommend this book to everyone, its well laid out, informative and begs the question on why this information and trend isn't discussed on the news. Shocker

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book thoroughly destroys the myth that white people constitute an exclusive or disproportionate number of serial killers. The facts are exactly the opposite. It is blacks, not whites, who are more likely to be serial killers. The author proves this by drawing on a huge body of evidence from many decades. What also is exposed is the media's almost complete lack of interest in reporting on black serial killers and this is the principle reason why the popular myth about white serial killers exists.

By Carolyn Paetow on April 24, 2014

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.

All of us have grown up with the stereotype of serial killers being exclusively white males. (with the exception of a white female or two) This book shatters that false notion. Thank you Mr. Cottrell.
It's about time someone put this together.
