Hell(o) all,
Ive always had this conception that its only a white mans thing, IE: delving into conspiracy theories, and so was wondering why I maybe had this perception from a young age.
Im in no way suggesting that black people dont involve themselves in issues like this. But Im wondering if they have taken the stance of....chill not drill.
I hope you can understand what Im saying.....It feels to me like they dont give a [snip] about problems in the world. Are we to paranoid ?
I would like to add that this is not in any way a racist view....I have good friends who are black

As having black nephews and family members and many dark friends of many shades I feel I can say that many black people believe "whitey" is the REAL conspiracy.
I guess if you feel subjugated or mistreated by a "better off" group you will find conspiracy in it.
Although I personally DO believe that "whitey" is trying to keep the colored man down (generally), I also in no way mean to intend that all or even most black people agree or feel one way or another on the subject.

I don't see how this couldn't be racist.

I mean, Just because one black guy isn't interested in the truth doesn't mean that another guy won't as well. Black people aren't connected through some sort of telepathy or anything.

All people have their own minds?

I'm Filipino and I believe in Conspiracies. Seriously in all races there are people that believe in conspiracies. In fact I have a Latino and Korean friend that believes 911 is an inside job

All my black friends think I am a nut bag for believing that UFO's are aliens so based on my limited exposure I am going to have to say all black people don't believe in popular conspiracies.

meh, all my white friends think i'm nuts, my family think i'm nuts, i think i'm nuts at times, i'm going to have to say, pretty much no-one believes this stuff until they see it on the news three weeks after it's talked about here.

yes, maybe it's proportional to white/black involvement in the power structure, ie higher white proportion there as well.
there are, however, many blacks who are very vocal on the subject. the rappers krs one, immortal technique, prodigy, professor griff of public enemy and dead prez spring to mind. to name just a few of the more prolific ones...

What an unusual question. Plus, I don't see what this has to do with aliens and UFO's. Some people are interested in conspiracies, some aren't. Humans have preferences. It makes no difference what they look like.

To answer your question, I present this rap video:

I don't think this is appropriate for the UFO and Aliens Forum. I think it is better suited for the I'm-Not-Touching-This-Topic-With-A-Ten-Foot-Pole Forum.

Regardless of the fact that race is actually inexistant, culture is what matters. We are all physically and mentally the same, but we differ culturally (i.e., values, religion, language, perspective, ect). To people of the "black" culture believe in conspiracies? Of course they do! Any minority is probably much more likely to believe in conspiracies than the majority of the population! I don't know how in tune they are into the "reptilian shapeshifter" à la David Icke, but from the people I know, they are totally into the corporations and corrupt governments/NWO stuff.

Are we so sensitive these days that you cant even ask a legit question that has no overtones of being derogatory ? but to just cater to the people on here who use racism as their card ( troll ) every time ?

Dear God in heaven. What an asinine question. Why does everything have to be divided into race and color? I would think that where and how a person lives would have more impact on how they think than the degree of melanin in their skin.

If you really think about it on the level that you present; then many Black people don't have to make guesses about conspiracies; they live with the results of it everyday.

i don't think you should change the title. in america, there is clearly a self styled "black culture" that makes itself distinct in the wider american cultural landscape, it's a fair question in that context.

I'm guessing that you probably don't hang around many black people, or else you wouldn't even be asking that question.

We don't call it "conspiracy theory," it's called "American history!"

i.e. The Tuskeegee experiments on black men in the 40s, the Rosewood massacre and decimation of "Black Wall Street" in the early 20th century, the assassination of Malcom X, MLK, Patrice Lumumba, Cointelpro, and if you really want to go out on a limb, the origin of AIDS and why it's hitting African countries particularly hard.

Most of the black people I know are naturally skeptical of the government and mainstream news. We don't shout it from the rooftops, though. Mostly for the fear of being branded paranoid, or a "reverse racist." Some black people see conspiracy only through the lenses of white racism, but that doesn't mean the conspiracies don't exist. They're just blaming the problems of the world on one particular race, when the people who perpetrate such evil (in my opinion) come from all races.

The Black Israelites come to mind. They're a group of nutty guys who dress in this space age warrior outfits and stand around the street yelling about the evil white man. Some of the stuff they say is true, but they see everything through a racial lens.

There may not be many black talk shows that discuss conspiracies to the extent of an Alex Jones, but it's subtly there, if you know how to listen. Listen to the lyrics of KRS1, Dead Prez, Public Enemy. Not all hip hop artists are concerned about guns and bling.

If you've ever been to NYC, f you take a walk down 125th street in Harlem (or downtown Brooklyn, or Jamaica Queens), you'll see several black vendors that do a brisk business selling conspiracy books by G. Edward Griffin and Bill Cooper, and David Icke sold right alongside the "street" literature and Christian inspirational books by T.D. Jakes and Joel Osteen. There's also guys selling DVDs about government conspiracies. Read the "Final Call" the Nation of Islam newspaper. It gives a conspiracy slant on the news. You may not know this but Louis Farrakhan talks a lot about UFOs and he has some interesting theories on the origin of mankind (I did a college research paper on the Nation of Islam - they go back to the 1930s and their theology is steeped in UFOlogy).

Im black and let me start by saying Ive been apart of ATS a long time. Theres realitys people of color deal with that whites dont , so the focus of a lot of people of color are on social issues, when your facing discrimination , I dont think ufo are on the top of your list of concerns.

I also think you need to realize that regardless of race we all have interest in things bigger then us, but due to self imposed limitations from all races we dont share info and build like the brothers we should be

Theres a lot of racism here on ATS, i have been very offended by some of the post, but I also realize its not my problem, im not the ignorant one and just because your on this board does not make you intelligent or your opinion truth

To end I wouldn't say I believe conspiracies , I study them and do research to find out what may be true and what may be fantasy
