Why are there so Few Black Preppers?

by DEMCAD • 98,017 views

Video about why it is so difficult for black people to prep for disasters. Why don't we see more African Americans in the survivialist/prep movement?

There will be no issue of color in a situation that desperate. If your mother was deathly sick and a person of another color had the cure. Would race be an issue? I think not.

In the slavery days the white rich men (democrats and republicans) who needed a lower race to do the donkey work and use to make money would buy up slaves, he took care of the slaves needs, food and drink, housing and clothing, and if the slave pleased him he was given a mare to fuck and breed with. Today the descendants of those white men are still democrat and republican and they still use the black slave as before, welfare, housing, food stamps, tell me what has changed?

The republican party was formed from the abolishonist movent for the sole intention of outlawing slavery. So to say that demicrats and republicans were skave owners is completely false. The KKK was formed by democrats and targeted black and white reoublican families. Everything that came after was simply a byproduct of the abolishonist movement. I thought you might find this interesting.

Thank you for saying this. I had to unsubscribed from a very educated prepper who unfortunately is a racist. I was sad by it, oh well. I do care about people skin color because to me they are all lovely and it is an aspect of their outside beauty but the real beauty is on the inside. You are obviously one of those. :)

I never knew there was a term for prepping. Having always lived in places where there can be extreme weather impacts. I just grew up planning for survival for 7 days minimum and 3  to 5 days in a vehicle. I have to say Katrina did open my eyes I scary way as a single woman with some health concerns and limited resources.  I have also been a tent camper for 20 years of my life. I guess that helps too, but I am now very interested in survival prep movement.

I guess I'll have to find out why that is by doing a little research because it sounds nonsensical to me.

I am recently awakened, and started to realize that all of us will be suffering in the same calamity. Starvation, diseases, and loss of Rule of law, will affect us all. Being a "prepper" is more than just you and yours surviving, you could potentially the restoration of civilization. If this duty should fall on us as those who are to live through this inevitability. We should leave the excess baggage behind. After all, it was spread among us to keep the rich, safe from the likes of us. You know, those people that did all the work. Whites, Blacks, Hispanics, Asians, and Indians, all of us without any money to speak of? Were kept at each others throats to keep us from turning on our real problems, the rich folks. Now, I have nothing against any one who got rich by the sweat of his own brow, but those who lied cheated and stole their way to wealth, or was simply born into it. Get no sympathy from me. Being a prepper, ensures when those thieves so up again, and they will. Some one call them out. Any body that thinks that those scoundrels haven't made preparations, needs to go watch the movie "Titanic" again. So no matter who you are, don't let race limit what you can do or who you can reach out to. We are all crabs boiling in the same pot.

What is it like being a black prepper? I will tell you what runs through my mind... I already know other blacks are going to expect me to provide them with food, clothing and shelter because we both are black. 95% of black men dont know how to do anything when it comes to survival and are unteachable...

I am a black liberal and I have started prepping. I am late in the game but my family will be ready. My wife and already have bug out bags. We have two guns. One 9 and a 40. We will soon get 2 AR-15. We also have a very good ammo stockpile. I am active duty navy and my wife is former navy and army. We both have the training and we have decided to be ready. After Katrina I know many blacks that are stocking up on everything. They just do not make a lot of videos about what they have.

You know Demcad I think it's because of all the disinformation that goes on in the black community. I can only speak for myself, but once I started to wake up to the truth, then it started to make sense to be a Prepper.  I just told you this earlier, but I truly admire you. You were one of the 1st Black Preppers on Youtube and I think a lot of us, just never knew about prepping.  I'm older than you, but my father was a Prepper before the word existed, lol.  I think black people who were raised in the south during the Great Depression, like my dad, always stayed prepared because they remembered what it was like.  Unfortunately that readiness didn't get passed down to me for numerous reasons, but now people are starting to wake up!  You having the courage and foresight to promote black prepping on YT has helped tremendously and has inspired others like myself to start my channel and now I'm "Reppin my Preppin" and I'm trying my best to get others in the Prepping Community.  The one thing I have learned since my journey is I don't see ethnic background as an issue in the Prepping Community at least here in Pittsburgh, PA.  I go to the gun shows and talk with everyone and I couldn't feel more comfortable.  So I'm curious how you feel now, almost 4 years later since you posted this video?  You should really feel proud of yourself, you have made a difference for many people Black, White, Hispanic, Asian, whatever... stay strong and keep prepping!

As a white guy, I don't care if you're black, purple, gay, or trans.  You're well spoken and have your head on straight, and you're the kind of person I would want to be around during a disaster.  Our society needs to get past this stereotype that people who prep are redneck conspiracy types.  EVERYONE should be prepared on some level.

I guess what I'm getting at is that if someone has a mindset like yours, I don't want them to be hesitant to approach like minded individuals because you're the only black person and you think all the white preppers would be hostile. I totally understand why a black person would have those reservations, I really do. But I'd welcome you with open arms.

I'm a white 'prepper', I guess you could call it, and I definitely don't want to be in a situation where I have to rely on other people - regardless of their race. In my opinion, you haven't prepped well enough, if you have to rely on a network of like-minded people. My general strategy is to stay away from other people for about a year, until things start to quiet down. You should only rely on your own strength, never anyone elses.

Just remember that part of prepping is doing exactly what you are suggesting; getting others involved in the movement; so when shit goes down, you have a community who is prepped.  With a community prepped, people can avoid turning on one another.

I am white, very white as a matter of fact, don't tan at all, I also do not consider color an issue - seen idiots of every color in my 55 years. Any aware person in America must be awake to the fact that other people are not the enemy - Govt. is the enemy - Govt. has created the race war, drug war, poverty war...any war you can name,Govt. created it - all to make money, garner votes and take away Liberty. I would prep with any one of any color if we were pledging to help one another survive and better our community - no person is an island and we will need each other to survive.

I'm white, but I have two black exes. The first one was(and I chalk this up to mostly being young) mostly focused on zombies and things like that if I did ask about emergency plans. He tended to mock me for keeping around bottled water and food that could be eaten without cooking. The second ex was actually really understanding, and encouraged my preparation. First aid kits, knowledge about starting fires or cooking food without electricity, keeping a stash of food that could be eaten without cooking, etc. It was less of an issue but he still never did much himself. I mostly prep for week-long natural disasters so it's not like we needed to pour a ton of money into it. I focus on doing more with as little as possible. The basics, like starting a fire, keeping a small stock of food, etc. I'm sure some black people do it, but I'm also sure there are some white people that don't do it, you know? You're very right about it just being a game of numbers--much like finding black atheists, Everyone's always asking "is it a cultural thing?" when really it's more of a "There's a 1:3 ratio of black to white people, and only 1:10 people are actually prepping and tell others about it." I do encourage everyone to prep, though. Even if it's just skills like knowing how to make soap, make water safe to drink, or learning what local plants are edible and how to trap wildlife.

Two reasons. 1) They are smarter. There are no zombies. 2) They are more practical. When shit hits the fan, one can always kill a paranoid prepper and steal their supplies. Why waste money on it?

My brotha, I appreciate ALL of your videos and your awareness to take action. Although I feel we Blacks need to STOP putting so much emphasis on "what we don't see, don't do and don't have". Of course things are what they are . Let's continue to put the information out there and pull from the glass "as half empty" rather than singing a mantra that isn't going to help. The danger of speaking certain words to Life I think many of us have yet to realize. Historically prior to integration we KNOW we DID do more of these things, out of sheer necessity . My family did most certainly. The onus is ALWAYS upon those of us who claim to know better, not the masses. Simply lead and the sheep will follow. Most people of other races and ethinicities DO NOT prep as well. This is the case ALL around the world. When it's all said and done, there ARE those of us who do and always have. Link up with those folks and continue to spread the news. Let's project our strengths , not are weaknesses. Love all of your vids. I'm gonna reach out to you via PM sounds like we're in the same area. Thanks and Keep up the great work!

My friend, being "new" to the movement, I can see where you would feel "out of your norm" and truly believe that it will be hard for you to find like minded people.  I think you will find out as you get deeper into your prep, you will find out that those of us who are getting prepared for any kind of problem won't give a darn about the color of your skin.  Those that I know, care about what you can bring to the table.  You don't have to be an expert in anything.  You just have to show that you are willing to contribute and learn.  It seems like to me, you are half way there now.  Try to stop worrying about being different, sit back and listen and watch those around you and soon enough you'll be pleasantly surprised at how quickly your in a team.  Now I'm not saying there aren't real jerks out there, just avoid them and find those that are truly concerned about survival regardless of the reason SHTF.  God bless you and good luck.

Hello DEMCAD. I am a black prepper that have been prepping off and on for the past 2 years. I think that more black people don't prepare for disasters because we rather focus on comfort items. What do I mean by comfort items? RIMS, SHOES, HAIR, COSMETICS, CLOTHES etc etc. These items are very popular for some of our people and I see this often in our communities. Another reason we don't prep is that we don't take our situation in this country seriously. We as American citizens have become so comfortable and dependent on the government to maintain daily living that we have forgotten about the unknown variables like natural disasters.

Realistically speaking, anyone who is a prepper is considered as crazy, or oh that's a waste of time and money. The black community on a whole is totally dysfunctional! And never learn from the past. People like the Jews understood that after the holocaust to be prepared, their mindset was to stick together control their destiny and resources and finances and they created the Israeli defense forces. I am African American and I think as a United states citizen we should all come together in a time of crisis and help when we can, however if you don't prepare I don't think I will share any of my things with those who laffed and scoffed at me when I was buying cases of canned food.

I understand how you feel about the tribe mentality and for the most part it's true. But I know one thing that trumps your race, gender or fiscal class. And that is the fact that most "preppers" I know are God fearing, freedom loving, good men. Seems to me that you are like minded. I believe that the most important factor to joining a group, now or later is your like mindedness and the ability to contribute. Good luck my friend and may you find that good men group easily no matter what their race is.

Sorry friend... I don't see why color matters... If you cannot find preppers in "the black community" then I 100% know there are plenty of white preppers (like me) who would welcome you. I just don't get why color matters... America is the melting pot, the majority of people I know don't care about color... The majority of the time I hear about color mattering is when someone is trying to falsely play the race car (which I know you are not playing the race card)... Just saying... If there were no white preppers, and lots of black preppers, I would have no problem with that, and most other preppers wouldn't either.

I talk to people all the time about prepping. I don't know a lot of my neighbors but the four that I have talked too say they recognize the need to prep especially because of the tornadoes we get each year. When I follow up with them they haven't done anything. Makes me think that I will get a few visitors if and when something goes down and I have the only power in my area. I would try to help but not at the expense of my family. I have let them know that I am not FEMA or the red cross and I will defend my family and my property if shtf. Doesn't seem to motivate them to prep for themselves.

Excellent video with highly interesting points. It is sadly true what you said about people being tribal. As a white man I have had black friends who basically shunned me in front of their black friends... I understood though, definitely not cool to know the white trash lol. I see definite advantages and disadvantages to both colors (we bleed the same though brother) First off it depends on the situation; if you are bugging out and living in the woods then being black is a definite advantage... my lilly white butt burns in the sun lol... on the other hand if a trooper or anyone else sees me carrying a rifle, then they just assume I'm a hunter... they will see you as a terrorist! (Sorry about that but it's true for the most part)... being black also has the advantage of better camouflage whereas my white head you can spot a mile away lol The very fact that you are doing this video shows that you are indeed a prepper, thinking of all angles and all scenarios and I would say with such a brilliant mind you won't have any trouble surviving.

... oh ya'.. one more thing... what you said about working together and being willing to work together is absolutely the most neglected and most important part of survival! If black people are neglectful of this (as you said) then they will not make it... period. Imagine you have all your preps stored up and a gang of skinheads 100 strong comes to take it from you? You absolutely MUST work together... black or white or yellow or red or green... and preferably all together... I know, wishful thinking.

Loved the video, straight forward and good points. As far as why arent there more black preppers, who knows, As far as Im concerned, doesnt matter to me if you are black, white, asian, indian, or whatever, as long as you are doing what it takes to make it if/when the time comes. I disagree that if you are black and in this state of mind you are at a disadvantage, while people do like to "stick with their own" especially when the chips are down, as a asian/native american, I havent had any issues with fitting in and meeting fellow preppers.

One thing that you are saying that IS true is that far too many people depend on the government to help them in an emergency.  People need to be educated about this falacy.  A classic example of an ongoing emergency that is happening right now is UNEMPLOYMENT.  And what help has the government provided?  None.  In fact, millions needing help were simply cut off without remedy.  If these folks were at least prepared with a food stockpile, a "victory" garden, or the ability to hunt and fish, they wouldn't be so bad off.  The problem is that the vast majority of black people are more concerned with watching BET, having the latest cell phone and being at the club and on social media than with their own survival.  They think that someone else will help them or SHOULD help them.  I feel sorry for them.  It is the classic case of "the ant and the grasshopper," so I believe that it has a lot to do with culture and mentality.

You never see much African American preppers. Its good to see... Weather or not there is another Katrina, civil unrest, or any other SHTF you should always be prepared. You cant count on the government to help. At least you and your family need to have the supplies to survive at least a month.

Interesting video for debate...so here we go! I would have to disagree RESPECTFULLY with the notion that "it's very difficult" to be a black prepper just because your black. I think for most of us that are not on a survival TV show and have made millions doing it, prepping is going to hard for everyone. Of course it's going to be difficult that's why most people wont do it. I personally think that race has nothing to do with prepping. I do agree that lifestyle and "major cultural difference" is the true issue as well as people not being educated on the subject of prepping. Most of the people that come to my classes (Look me up ,Black Swan Preparations on FaceBook) have no clue of what it means to be prepared, blacks, whites, Latinos so it's not about race my friend, it's truly about peoples priorities. Is the latest iphone more important than your family's safety? For most everyone that I see walking around, yup! They could care less about prepping, they have no idea. They are content with thinking that everything is ok and the lights came on when I turned on the switch. Now as far as "people sticking to their own" I could not AGREE more!............I plan to do just that!...wait for it......SO now everyone is thinking I'm a racist.......why is that? Because my profile is a picture of a white dude and because my last statement? But you didn't let me finish my statement before passing judgement, mainly due to cultural differences I'm guessing. I digress, "My own" are other PREPPERS and I intend to stick with them, because that is the "culture" I'm accustomed too and choose to surround myself with. It's very true that cultures play major factor in prepping not race. But you are in the "prepping culture" so I really dont think it's that difficult for YOU to be a prepper. Its the choices people make that make them who they are, not race. It's also about resourcefulness and not money allot of times too! Honestly I'm so broke I cant even pay attention most of the time, but I am very resourceful and make do with what I have which translates into skills and knowledge. I hope everyone will take the time for that to soak in and think before throwing the race card again. It's not about race it's about the individual choices that a culture chooses to use as a priority....... The mic drops, lights, curtain and exit stage right... BTW DEMCAD if you're ever in Central KY drop me a line and we could train some together. Now you just expanded your "networking capabilities" and it wasn't even difficult! Also you just picked up another subscriber! Best of luck prepping!

Black Swan- I really like what you said, except "my own" being given the loose definition of "other preppers".... It's a very unfortunate thing that lots of people who call themselves preppers are jerks... Some "preppers" even plan to immediately loot big stores like Sam's club or other food warehouses.... Those people are definitely not "my own".  I know you probably didn't mean the people I am referring to, I guess long ago I realized that just because someone is a prepper doesn't mean they are 'good'...I am just baffled by the some of the ridiculous, immoral ideas I have heard from some people who call themselves "preppers". But I am sure you probably already know that. Have a great day sir:)

I met a man who went to a survival show to sell gold and silver.  He thought he would make a ton of money in commission.  But he had not even one person buy anything of gold or silver.  And he asked a couple of "good ol boys" who were walking by his booth why nobody is buying gold.  They answered him as they looked down at their newly purchased ammo, "We know how to turn lead into gold. Ha ha ha ha ha ha..." Sad.  Folks are already planning to take from the preppers by assault.  Saw your comment on America Is Babylon video...   I have advice for you: Do not trust anyone.  Do the work yourself.  Do not follow any other person, and pray each time you work on it.  Start making a timeline from Adam.  Start reading the bible from Gen 1:1 and go verse by verse to the end of Rev 22.  When you come up to a date, add it into your timeline.  Start in excel by making a spreadsheet in a column of 7 years.  Make it in rows of 7 cycles.  There are 7 years in every cycle as given in Ex 23... cycles of 7 years.  I call it a Sabbath Cycle.  then I get 7 of them next to each other to form a group of 7 Sabbath Cycles.  Then I repeat it as I go upwards.  You have to start at the bottom and go upwards, the first year being the year 1, not zero.  Start adding events into your timeline.  You will need more information, and that will come as you read the bible.  God does reward those who are seeking, and do not give up.  Do this and you will be able to find out when the Sabbath Year is.  I observed the Sabbath Year already, the last time it came by.  I agree with you, it is very important.  We stored up and ate only what was stored up, except for milk and meat products.  They do not grow from the ground.  We were blessed in that god saw that once we had conviction, we acted upon it.  Each time He shows us something, we act upon it.

black people just don't announce it. Many black people are always prepped and are skilled survivalists. You just don't see them broadcasting it. But a good redneck friend and a ghetto survivalist are your best companions in the time of a crisis.

IMHO there are very few black people who self identify as peppers because survivalist and prepper culture in america has long been tied to gun rights and general conservatism. Which most blacks don't want to be associated with either because they are largely republican driven ideals in us politics.

Republicans have fought harder for blacks than anyone so that doesn't really make any sense. And if anyone has a reason to not trust the federal government and not support big government it's blacks. There's a reason why MLK was Republican. The civil war, the NRA, 1964 civil rights act... LBJ said " I'll have those niggers voting Democratic for the nest 200 years" The KKK was founded by Democrats to target black Republicans, the list goes on. ( I'm also indepedent, Libertarian if you want to be specific. Difference is I'm not as dumb as you)

It's sounds to me like your segregating your self. I don't know a single person that wouldn't network with you because your black. It's seems that color is a bigger deal to you than it should be. If you have something to offer the group they gladly take you in.

For most blacks there has always been a financial problem in this country.  And why do you consider yourself a black prepper?  Most preppers are preparing for a race war...

my grandparents didn't call it "prepping" they just called it "being prepared" my parents kept a pantry. so there was food even if there wasn't FOOD. I don't know when we got away from stuff like that but,what i'm trying to say is there shouldn't be a "bug out" mentality so much as a "bug in" mentality (in most cases) . and you might need to trust your neighbors  for that. that could build a sense of real community and that's kinda the point. i'd love to be your neighbor; black or white, but I understand your feelings, they make perfect sense. and I love these vids because they are telling us to do what we SHOULD be doing already.

I think it's because too much of the prepper movement is influenced by an extreme survivalist perspective instead of on self-reliance and sustainability. Not to mention focusing on way more possible catastrophes than probable ones. All people should focus on storing food, water, sanitation and toiletries, guns, things to get by simply, for at least 1 year. All of the bug out bags, and locations, and half baked plans really need to be seriously reconsidered. Bugging out, nutritionally imbalanced food stockpiles, tons of stuff that require water but no provisions for water..... First preppers need a realistic baseline for prepping (what, why, how), then anyone interested can take it from there.

Completely agree, most of the stuff I've seen just makes me laugh. Specially people who think they are going to bug out to the woods without any self reliance or any training at all. Especially when they think they're going to do it on public land, you mean where every other person who thinks like you is going to go? Lol, yeah good luck with all that bugging out stuff.

Fascinating video!  I come at this from a white left libertarian perspective.  I find it interesting that "survivalism" has a dirty connotation among modern left movements in general.  In the nineteenth century and early twentieth century, the left was a strong defender of the Right to Bear Arms along with the other rights of the Bill of Rights.  This changed obviously, perhaps as part of a COINTELPRO infiltration of the left to get it to abandon such views, but such views were a strong part of the early Socialist and Anarchist movements that sought autonomy for workers.   Without endorsing Socialist or Anarchist revolutionary views---I am a Philosophical Pacifist, with exemptions for direct self-defense and the defense of existing democratic structures against subversion but not for grand plans based on political theory---I agree with those movements that working people should self-organize and form mutual support like we saw in Spain before the Fascists took over.  In order to survive such inevitable probabilities as EMP, Solar Flare, Martial Law, direct takeover by Military Contractors, Racial Nationalists of all stripes fighting a futile war against societally deemed Others, the effects of Climate Change, or perhaps a Natural Disaster of Consequence, communities need to have strong networks of social solidarity. My difference with Right Libertarian Preppers is the whole idea that we can survive without Mutual Aid or a social support network.  This is a typically American mythic individualism that gets in the way of communities getting off the Grid, forming networks of mutual aid, and crossing racial lines like you are suggesting we should.  It does not work in the real world.  If we want to prevent what happened in the series "Jericho" from happening for real, people have to be willing to sacrifice for the greater good.  If the entire social structure breaks down, we have to remember the Republic and work to rebuild it, being the best that we have even with all of its injustices and complexities.  But then we should rebuild it even better than before, jettisoning militarism and racism.

I am very thankful for your channel. I am an African American female and is very interested in this issue. I have been watching Alex Jones and he has a lot of good research information regarding prepping for environmental/political disaster. I am currently looking for Preppers in Colorado where I live. I am also a Christian and truly believe that God will make a way for those of us who are in specific cultural situations. God Bless you and keep Prepping. Your labor is not in vain.

Perhaps being black could help in a SHTF situation.  Other people's prejudices may work to your advantage if they stereotype and are scared of you, especially if you're prepared to play up to it.  Also, if the majority of the black community doesn't prep then it would be easier to be the 'grey' man as it were as escape detection because they won't be looking for you.

I'm white and poor. I was a prepper for years but I had to realize that by prepping I was doing 2 things. First, I was only giving myself a few extra days to weeks to live and that not worth living. Second, I was prepping for someone who was ready to steal my stuff and probably kill me in the process. Thank God I'm prepped for something way more important- eternity. Way before there was any talk of societal collapse I told God I was sorry for messing up my life. He forgave all my sin and came to live inside me. Now, that's prepping.

I'm African American mixed with other races, but I only appear to be African American. I have joined the prep community for a very few years now. I feel in regular situations African americans are viewed differently and those that are can feel how they are scene differently. Yet in a SHTF situations I feel individuals are perceived for the benefit or danger to the situation more that a racial issue, yet it is still always present. I have never thought of racial element being an issue since to be honest most of my friends are actually not of my primary race. I feel that regardless of the differences their you should not allow it to effect your prepping or associations. Finding like minded people is a task. Most of those I know have been individuals from the internet, it seems to be the easiest application. I have met a few in person as well as keep the relationship internet based. I feel that these issues are something you have to deal with, yet its something that should not change your position on prepping. I feel their is a struggle for those that cannot afford to prep well, but their are those in an even worst situation, those that don't know what prepping is and those that don't practice it at all. Expressing your prepping views to friends and family is a great way to start a group to be on the same page. Hopefully they will tell their friends and etc. I feel that you're way of thinking is the dominating force in any situation. "Stay Safe, Fight For Your Rights, Survive At All Cost" -Fang

I hate to say this but aside from this man, much of the black population enjoys the Thug lifestyle and will be more likely to be Raiders and Bandits when shtf.  You DEMCAD, are an intelligent man and know what's what.  I also imagine that there are many more like you, at least I hope so. As for sticking with their own kind, I would say that for the most part you are correct.  However, there are those like myself who would welcome someone into the survival community despite race.  Aside from humans being relatively tribal, we also get our strength from diversity.

i wanna start doing this. there definitely needs to be more black people prepping because when this country does finally collapse all these non black people that may smile in your face like they are your friend  will show their true colors and we will be the first group of people to get slaughtered because of lack of unity and not preparing. sad but true

I'm black also and my suggestion is prioritize. I'm not saying it's easy for everyone because some have less to spend than others.  But just buy and set aside a little extra (food, toothpaste, water,etc ) at a time. That's prepping. Gradually, your stockpile grows and you expand to include the things you need for food, shelter, medicine, protection, etc.

I think BET and the consumer mentality, has plagued my kinfolks. I know people that will stand in line at 5am to buy Nikes. Ask one of them what the Nike symbol represents? Watch the confused puppy look take over lol. Just look at it like this. Some folks will, some folks wont. I know you wish that a lot more black folk would heed the advice. But when it goes down. Its survival of the fittest. At least you reached me young blood. Peace Always.
