gravelstudios OK, so this channel is obviously a joke. What I want to know is whether the people behind it are white or black.
bawbag It's a legit belief by some serious lunatic fringe elements, so I think the channel might be in serious Poe's law territory.
Most of this stuff comes from the works of Elijah Muhammad (Founder of Nation of Islam), specifically 'Yakub (Jacob): the father of mankind' where he tells how a big-headed scientist (Yakub) created white people etc.
RedRust Cofounder of Nation of Islam Wallace Fard Muhammad was a white man.
Maggot Brain If this was a joke the hand drawn art world be much better and the videos wound't be as long.
Maggot Brain John Pemberton stole the fomula for coca cola from the black man.
betamaxed Big Head Scientist has played their hand a few times that indicates they don't necessarily believe this stuff but they show a great fondness for the material that these videos are about. Think of it as a video encyclopedia of nutso fringe religious beliefs and cosmologies.
gravelstudios That's what I meant by my above comment. It seems obvious to me that the channel is making fun of this particular world view, but they've obviously spent a lot of time learning about it as well. What I wondered was whether it was fondly intended or not.
Space Odin Yeah -- there's an element of "loving tribute" here.
RealmOne I believe that the creator of these videos is a black science-fiction nerd who grew up in an insane New Age Black Nationalist family. This is like some modern creative-play theory thing. But in the end the uncertainty is the spice, aged deeply with years of videos.
