The Context of White Supremacy hosts our fourth 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 detailed the behavioral impact of certain toxins that are disproportionately stockpiled in areas where black people reside. Washington placed particular attention on the way that black parents are frequently blamed for the harmful side-effects of environmental racism. Paying attention to Baltimore, Maryland, Washington evidenced how Whites would deliberately poison black children and families to experiment with techniques for treating lead poisoning.
