Serial Killers Tend To Be White Males

Leave a comment

AlterNet has an article up describing in greater detail something that I’ve been trying to draw people’s attention to for a number of years now: tall, young white guys, especially middle-class or wealthy ones in college, tend to be serial killers. More than any other demographic, this simple fact holds true. Yet the corporate media treats each individual episode like some one-of-a-kind phenomenon. It’s not. The sooner more of us come to grips with this, the sooner we can address the issue. Which means more of the rest of us will be safer.
