The Context of White Supremacy hosts the 11th study session on Harriet A. Washington’s awesome publication, Medical Apartheid: The Dark History Of Medical Experimentation On Black Americans From Colonial Times To Present. Washington’s outstanding research catalogs intentional, premeditated violation of black bodies under the guise of “science.” Washington’s book should permanently 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 session emphasized the vulnerability of black children. Washington noted how the highly disproportionate number of black children in juvenile detention centers have often been pillaged by Racist researchers. Many of these White scientists conducted research to prove that black people were inherently criminal, violent and in need of White domination. Washington also detailed the growing trend of Whites stockpiling the genetic material of a disproportionate number of black people. Even the DNA of the innocent is being hoarded. Washington also deconstructed how confusion about sickle-cell anemia lead to inaccurate thinking that large numbers of black people suffered from this disease, which incorrectly justified blacks being prohibited from certain types of employment, marriage and even having children. Medical Apartheid should be required reading for any and all black people.
