Product Description

[Some may ask, “Why is a Christian bookstore selling a book about black serial killers?” Justin Cottrell, the book’s author, is a personal friend, a dedicated Reformed Christian, and a natural raconteur. As a former researcher with a creationist ministry, he is greatly interested in Christian anthropology and is meticulous in his study of it. In Rise of the Black Serial Killer, Cottrell utterly destroys a common shibboleth of humanistic society. In addition to documenting the killers and the trends, Cottrell provides penetrating insight into why these facts are so commonly suppressed, and further links upward trends in black serial killing with reductions in external moral restraints, increased indulgence in vulgar entertainments, and the diminishing value placed on human life resulting from unjust wars. If you love the Sixth Commandment, reject false responsibility and the guilt it produces, and repudiate neo-Platonic notions which deny the essential reality of the flesh, you should definitely be interested in what Cottrell has to say. While not a Christian book per se, this is a book by a Christian, written in terms of the Christian worldview, and essential for understanding the times.]

In Rise of the Black Serial Killer, Justin Cottrell dispels 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 have heard any of their names or stories, until now.

This study contains a full list of every black serial killer, along with a brief description of their crimes.  Biographies on 35 of these black serial killers are given, with detailed information about their crimes.

Additionally, the author offers reasons why most people assume black serial killers do not exist — from media suppression to common misunderstandings.  Coupled with this is a look into the various factors that breed serial killers, with analysis concerning why black serial killers are on the rise while white serial killers are on the decline.

Selected Quotes

“If, throughout the course of this book, you feel that I am a bigot, racist, finger-pointer, or tattletale, take a moment to reflect.  It could have been your loved one who was a victim of one of these killers.  I was not the judge, jury, or even part of the investigation team.  I am merely a documenter, picking up the facts and presenting them to the world.  As my mother taught me, sometimes the truth hurts.  While I am not meaning pain or stress on any person or group, the research found in this book will open eyes to trends, media bias, double standards, racism, and the grandiose scheme of wiping not-so-politically-correct stories under the rug.” (page 7)

“If a black man is found guilty of a violent crime against a white, lawyers beg the court to lessen his sentence because he is a product of the white man’s blatant racism and oppression.  They argue that if blacks would not have been subjugated by whites, then they would commit less crime, even arguing at times that they suffer from an unproven condition called “Post Traumatic Slave Syndrome.”  Along these lines, some black commentators have suggested that when a black man kills, it is a suppressed and vestigial part of his memory from his ancestors’ enslavement, and that the blame clearly lies not in him for his crime, but with his ancestors’ wicked slave masters.  Not to be outdone, some people have even argued that black criminals would not be criminals if they had been afforded the same opportunities in life that whites have.  Inexplicably, even when a black man admits that he had race-based intentions in killing a white, he is entirely ignored, and the media pundits claim he was confused and did not really mean what he said.” (pages 42-43)

“[C]onnected with this lawlessness was a noticeable pattern of broken homes, which most agreed were a result of black men who forsook their duty to be industrious after slavery ended.  Therefore, most commentators agreed that some if not all criminal behavior in blacks was born in fatherless homes, where children were not taught respect for laws or how to properly make a living.  This problem was widespread throughout the country and was not an indictment against all blacks, but instead was an admonishment for irresponsible black men to stop their criminal behavior, to have pride in holding a job, and to care for their family with love.” (page 77)

“Even without pornography, the sexual revolution taught a generation of Americans that it was acceptable to thumb their nose at forbidden things.  The revolutionaries told people that they were not beholden to a set of moral confines; they were accountable to themselves and to no one else—especially not to an outside force like God.  In their minds, the recipients of the sexual revolution made their own destiny, which meant that they made their own policies about what was right or wrong.  Therefore, not only did the heirs of this revolution question sexual practices, but they began to question other off-limits subject like suicide and murder.  As people tested the fences, many began to reason that if they made the rules, then it was acceptable to murder, regardless of what a governing body and its stuffy old laws said.” (page 84)

“The point with each of these cases is not that white serial killers do not claim ludicrous things, for they do too.  Instead, it is to show the value that race holds with the black killers.  The media fails to report the race of most black serial killers, claiming that race does not matter.  However, race becomes very important during and after the conviction as a means to portray the killer as a victim of racism.  To my knowledge, no white serial killer (or for that matter, no white murderer) has ever attempted to use racism against him as an appeal.  Sure, white killers use other tactics—which blacks use as well—but claiming racism is not one of their tools.  Posing as the victim of racism during the investigation or trial is a tactic unique to black killers.  It is especially prevalent when a black serial killer had white victims.  There is almost an expecation, during either the trial or the appeal process, that racism towards the killer will be mentioned.  This same notion is not afforded to white serial killers with black victims, but instead is reversed by painting them as the racist.” (pages 169-170)
