The Context of White Supremacy hosts the 8th study session on Harriet A. Washington’s magnificent text, Medical Apartheid: The Dark History Of Medical Experimentation On Black Americans From Colonial Times To Present. Washington’s brilliant work exposes deliberate, premeditated exploitation of black bodies under the guise of “science.” Washington’s research should drastically alter black people’s interpretation of the scientific developments of whitefolks – like the “crispr” gene editing technology and DNA tracing websites that stockpile genetic material. Last week’s exploration of Eugenics and the Racist contempt for black reproductive rights delivered the most powerful sentences of the book: “Within a century, reproductive coercion had taken a 180-degree turn for black women. During slavery, black women had been forced to procreate, but now they were being forced into sterility. The consistent factor was white control.” Washington further outlined how disproportionately subjected black people to toxic radiation, and examined the urine and feces of black people to learn all they could to maintain White power.
