If you are asking this question, first know that 'they' (nonhuman groups seeking control of humans and this planet) are not of a single race or culture. There are multiple races operating here, organized into different factions that work with or against each other as they see fit.
Unless you're someone who's intimately aware of these groups and their intentions, and how they operate and infiltrate civilizations (this ain't their first circus), parsing the truth from all the disinformation can be difficult.
Don't rely on insiders.
Rely on yourself.
Focus on the 'big picture', it will help you avoid getting distracted with fascinating but inconsequential details, promoted storylines, and drama.
Food for thought:
(Suggestion: don't get too hung up on trying to classify or label humanity's would-be manipulators. Simply use whatever descriptions of or names for these meddlers makes the most sense to you, and revise as you go. The challenge their presence presents us with is a great opportunity for personal growth)
