The Context of White Supremacy hosts our sixth 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 is 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 poisoning of areas that will disproportionately and adversely impact non-white people. The non-white victims are generally kept ignorant about the poisons saturating their environment and potentially jeopardizing their long term health and brain functioning. During last week’s session, Washington described the debilitating impact of cigarette smoking – including damaging the brain. She evidenced how cigarettes and alcohol are overly promoted in areas where mostly black people reside. The chapter also documented how alcohol companies aggressively market to underage black children. Alcohol consumption cannot be beneficial to still-developing minds. Washington shared the evidence shows White Women are more likely to consume alcohol during pregnancy, but black females are more likely to have a child with Fetal Alcohol Syndrome. Gus and other listeners suspect Racists could be adding chemicals to the malt liquors and fortified alcohols marketed to black people.
