Why are so many people drawn to conspiracy theories in times of crisis?

Unfortunately, a lot of discussion about racism ignores the fact that White people are also victims of racism.
On the subject of suicide: White men account for 75% of US suicides, White women account for another 15%. Men of all races account for 80% of US suicides. September is suicide awareness month, but it is rare that I see awareness of these aspects of suicide.
I also read about a 19-year-old White college student at UC Berkeley that was murdered by a Black man there. The Black man just approached the younger man from behind, produced a gun and executed him. There was no exchange of words and no provocation. Black-on-white violence is often ignored or covered up, which is another form of anti-White racism.
