In this chapter, Charles I. Nero examines Paul Outlaw’s Berserker. He reflects on Outlaw’s choice to juxtapose Nat Turner, a slave rebel who murdered whites in order to escape chattel slavery, with Jeffrey Dahmer, a person who murdered African American and Asian-descended men for sport. He ultimately contends that the former and the latter embody a quintessential American masculinity for Outlaw and provide an opportunity to mediate on the politics of interracial desire.
