If these kids have ever actually appeared at all, I'm putting my money on hoodlums with contacts. That being said, it's not the eyes that I find strange - for that reason exactly. It's not like those contacts are a rarity. It's the supposed overwhelming sense of doom and dread that creeps me out. Even if I were to be approached by supposed B.E.K.s, though, the psychology of the situation is huge. Even if they were just kids with contacts, knowing the story would put me at even more unease.

Damn kids.

It's important to be both skeptical and open-minded.

Like above, its so very easy to get full black, schlera lenses that cover your entire eye.
As far as the feeling of dread and doom, that's easy.
You throw in a creepy child, with full black eyes at that (not knowing they were contacts) then that's enough to make anyone feel uneasy like something bad is going to happen.
It's just some kids having fun. Unless something horrible happens, we will never know what exactly they are.
The only way we can know is if we DO invite them inside.

Unless they produce evidence for this, I call BS. Unsurprisingly, the link is to a conspiracy site. Meh.

Agreed. Also, I saw the same story on a website called CreepyPasta, which is intended for short scary stories to read and ruin your bedtime. xD

Actually, stories of 'black eyed people' date back hundreds of years.  Early stories include 'The Brown Lady of Raynham Hall'.  Several people witnessed this ghost 'with black eye sockets'.  (Black eyes or empty sockets?)

Several books contain ghost stories referring to 'black eyed people' with many of the stories dated prior to the Internet.

'Black Eyed Kids' were thrust into the paranormal limelight via Brian's story, but I that was just one of many 'Black Eyed People' stories that were already circulating.

www.paranormal.about.com and www.theshadowlands.net and many other sites have several reader submitted stories about 'black eyed kids/people'.  The stories range in date from very recent to very old.

Does this all prove that the 'black eyed kids' stories are true?  No, of course not.  But it does add another dimension to the discussion.  I'll dig some of the stories up to share with everyone.  There is a story from a Marine seeing a black eyed child show up at his dormitory on base.  Another is from woman shopping at Walmart.  And still another is from a woman picking up a cup of coffee.

An interesting common theme is the feeling of fear when folks run into these things.  It's also notable that the feeling of fear often comes before the person realizes that they are dealing with a 'black eyed person'.

A sampling of stories:

I think we have to get past the idea that they are just pranksters wearing contacts. Kids wearing contacts do not bring a feeling of doom.

I've read stories about B.E.K's and I must say they are creepy. I read one, where the person talked about how he or someone he knows let some B.E.K's into his home and they tried to trap to the person.

Also, someone where online I came across a picture of one of the B.E.K's and it scared me. I had nightmares for weeks and felt unease for a long time. I guess that was because I had read so many stories about them the night they started. Anyways, from what I've read about them they seem to want to cause harm to people.

I wonder if there is anyone who is visited multiple times by them? If so, they would be the most likely ones to be ready to get them on video.
