Somehow or other the myth that only white people are serial killers has been allowed to flourish despite evidence to the contrary. In November black serial killer Howell Emanuel Donaldson III was arrested in Florida for several random murders. Most recently Cleophus Cooksey Jr.- another black serial killer and felon turned aspiring rapper who nicknamed himself Playboy, was arrested in December for murdering his mother and step father in Arizona. He has since been tied to nine other murders over a three week period between Thanksgiving.
According to Dr. Mike Aamodt, a professor of psychology at Radford University and founder of the Serial Killer Information Center: “if you combine US serial killers across all decades, 52% of serial killers have been white [and] 40% black … However, if you just look at the past three decades: 37% were white [and] 60% were black.” Read more here. And it`s not just serial killers that get this treatment. Everyone knows about Charles Manson and the murders his followers committed, but very few people know about Yahweh ben Yahweh and the murders committed by his followers, many of which were racially based.
