The Context of White Supremacy hosts study session number four on Rebecca Skloot‘s bestselling non-fiction publication, The Immortal Life Of Henrietta Lacks. Henrietta Lacks was a black mother of five who labored through cervical cancer; she died in 1951. Suspected Racists in White lab coats looted genetic material from her without consent and have used her cells – code-named HeLa – to produce extraordinary amounts of vaccines, cancer medications, in vitro fertilization, gene mapping and cloning – mostly for the benefit of Whites. Neither Ms. Lacks or her black family members were compensated for this likely act of “medical apartheid;” her relatives were not informed of this crime until two decades after her death. Suspected Race Scientists continued their immoral legacy by conducting research on her children – also without consent. Last week’s session detailed an abundance of black pathology that was completely unrelated to the unethical, immoral conduct of Dr. George Guy and other Racist Suspects. Skloot does not offer the same depiction of the raping White psychopaths who enslaved Lacks’ ancestors. As Skloot is a White Woman, we’ll remain hyper-vigilant for the influence of her possible Racist perspective on the structure of this tragedy.
