The Context of White Supremacy hosts our third study session on Harriet A. Washington’s A Terrible Thing to Waste: Environmental Racism and Its Assault on the American Mind. Washington is a science writer, editor and ethicist who’s held prestigious positions at the most elite academies across the globe. Her debut work, Medical Apartheid: The Dark History of Medical Experimentation on Black Americans from Colonial Times to the Present, is one of Gus’s all time favorites and widely hailed as a depressing and immaculate historical record of White medical terrorism against black people. A Terrible Thing to Waste explores the impact of environmental Racism – the deliberate pollution of areas that will disproportionately and adversely impact non-white people. Many of the toxic impacts of this pollution are unknown to the victims and can have lifelong debilitating impacts on quality of life and brain functioning. During last week’s session, Washington devoted the first chapter to the history of Whites globally insisting that black people are stupid. She noted the enduring appeal of pseudo-scientific publications spanning centuries that conclude Whites are brilliant and black people are the biggest dunces in the galaxy – and should thus be mistreated. She contrasted this with the deliberate poisoning of black people that routinely occurs with environmental racism. She recognized the efforts of late attorney Johnnie L. Cochran Jr., who won a $700 million lawsuit in Anniston, Alabama, where black people were being subjected to years of chemical and biological warfare.
