Blacks as lab rats? No way

Millions of white people have throughout history, maintained that they are the ‘chosen ones,’ and that blacks are not fully human. 

Not only have they promoted this by any means possible over the centuries, but even more disgracefully, they have even successfully co-opted religion to promote this evil doctrine.

For, from Christianity was established and recognized by the imperial world power in Rome, as the ‘true religion’ their depiction of Jesus as white with blue eyes, strengthened the campaign.

Latterly too, the  Dutch Reform Church in South Africa was for decades, masters of this ‘spiritual’ doctrine,  as has the white evangelical movement in the USA, though they have been a little more subtle.

Unfortunately, this evil doctrine has not only been super successful among millions of whites but also, they have even accomplished the mammoth feat of convincing a large segment of the black population that this is true.

As a result of the success of this doctrine, black people have often been used as lab rats, to test different types of medicines necessary to keep the white man healthy, without a peep from most people.  Some of the best known and recent examples of this abuse in the USA have been; 

From 1932 to 1972  the public health service along with the Tuskegee institute  established  a program called “Tuskegee Study of Untreated Syphilis in the Negro Male.”  Under this program, 200 black men in Tuskegee diagnosed with syphilis, were never told of their illness and were denied treatment. They were then used as human guinea pigs to allow the scientist to follow their progression and symptoms of the disease. They all subsequently died from syphilis and their families were never told that they could have been treated. 
The study continued for four decades. (NBC News.)

In the 1950s Henrietta Lacks, an African-American woman  was the unwitting source of cells which were cultured by George Otto Gey to create the first known human immortal cell line to be cloned for medical research. This was done without the lady’s knowledge or consent, from a tumor biopsied during treatment for cervical cancer at Johns Hopkins Hospital in Baltimore, Maryland, U.S.   Allegations are that doctors have grown roughly 20 tons of her cells since her death.

In 2014, according to the Atlanta Black Star, reports emerged that the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention hid results from a test of experimental measles vaccines that actually increased the likelihood of black children developing autism. Dr. William Thompson, who has been with the CDC for more than 10 years, told The Examiner that the authors of the study manipulated and hid data that proved black babies were more than three times more likely to develop regressive autism if they were given the vaccine before the age of 3. Parents of the black babies who were receiving the vaccines were not made aware of the risk of their child developing autism.

Only recently too,  the rumors that AIDS drugs had been tested on Africans were confirmed when Jean-Paul Mira, head of intensive care at Cochin hospital in Paris, was speaking about the global health crisis. He was participating in an online conversation when he suggested carrying out a major study in Africa in the race to find a vaccine for the Coronavirus. According to  Yahoo News  on April 3rd, 2020, he declared; “If I could be provocative, shouldn’t we be doing this study in Africa, where there are no masks, no treatment, no intensive care, rather as was done with certain studies on AIDS, where things are tested on prostitutes because it’s known that they are highly exposed (to HIV)?” Mira asked. “What do you think?”

Camille Locht, head of research at the National Institute of Health and Medical Research (INSERM) in Lille, was also in on the discussion and was said to have agreed with the suggestion declaring; “You are right. We are in the process of thinking about a study in parallel in Africa!”

The head of the WHO Director-General Dr. Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus who is an Ethiopian was quick to declare that he condemned the suggestion adding;

“Africa can’t and won’t be a testing ground for any vaccine.”

While that official agency most likely will not sanction the move, what is to prevent private investors from doing it in their haste to enrich pharmaceutical companies? 

I will tell you what; only constant vigil by persons of colour throughout the entire planet can guarantee that this will not be done. For as Edmund Burke, “All that is necessary for evil to succeed is that good man (people) do nothing. 

So it is to our own peril if, in 2020, we the black people of the world sit idly by and allow the continuation of the evil practice by wicked scientists and other exploiters, who treat our brothers and sisters, wherever they are, as lab rats!
