In a twist on history, author R.W. Somerton looks at racism, hatred, and injustice from an alternative perspective.

A group of elite African-Americans is kidnapping selected white racists and turning them into slaves, picking White Man’s Cotton. Told in turn from the perspective of the slaves and that of their captors, White Man’s Cotton looks at the power of hate and its universality, regardless of race or creed.

Violent, suspenseful, and thrilling, this novel examines the roots of hatred and explores the lengths to which people will go in their search for revenge, and the struggle to end injustice and intolerance. A work of speculative fiction, it is intended to provoke an evaluation of our beliefs and our understanding of justice and equality.
