The AIDs conspiracy theory is the belief that the CIA created this virus to purposely infect and kill the gay and black communities. Boyd E. Graves believes that the government modified a sheep virus to produce the AIDs virus. They seemingly put this virus into hepatitis B vaccines that were only given to gay men and African Americans in New York and San Francisco.
There are many different sub-theories of the AIDs conspiracy theory, but the basic premise is that the government created the virus. According to theorists, there was not enough proof that HIV just came to be. They think that the hepatitis B vaccine was produced in chimpanzees and it was given in New York City to gay men and African Americans between 1972-1974. That is exactly when the epidemic started.
The dependent variables of the theory would be sexual orientation (homosexual), race (African American), and gender (male). The independent variable would be the hepatitis B vaccine laced with the AIDs virus. To the conspiracy theorists, it appears that the government targeted a specific population, but some believe that it was for world population control in general since the planet is extremely overpopulated.
The problem that the theory targets is the origin of the AIDS virus. The deductive reasoning that helps the conspiracy theorists back up their theory is that a lot of the experimentation and creation of the hepatitis B vaccines containing the HIV virus was not documented.
Many religions believe that homosexuality is a sin (including the dominant religion in the United States which is Christianity). There are also still white supremacists who do not respect African Americans. These biased ideas may have been more prevalent in the 1970’s and this shows that the people that were specifically targeted in the creation of the AIDs virus may have not just been “accidental”.
