This is from the SciScoop blog. I've known about the Port Chicago disaster for many years, but never heard the speculation that it was a secret nuclear blast. I did some Googling and found this very intersting site exploring the conspiracy theory.
Sounds pretty bizarre to me, but wouldn't it be interesting if saint FDR had tested a nuke on US citzens, and left black sailor to die in the test?

It was a tragic accident involving a cargo ship loaded with conventional munitions.
The work crew was all black enlisted men with white officers.
The investigation led ultimately to reforms in duty assignments for black Americans. Loading ammo was plenty dangerous - they wanted to get into combat.
