Suspicion of the coronavirus vaccines among many segments of the Black population is tied to a widespread lack of trust in mainstream medicine.
The root of the problem lies not in Black communities themselves, but in a medical system that has historically dehumanized them and continues to do so.
The result is that the history of medical racism in the United States presents a significant barrier to anything approaching equitable care in the present and future.
This history of medical racism is often shorthanded to a single word: Tuskegee. For 40 years the United States Public Health Service, working with the Tuskegee Institute in Alabama, tracked the progression of untreated syphilis in poor Black men, even after effective treatments for the disease became available — an appalling ethical violation that cost Black people their lives.
News coverage in 1972 drew attention to the study, and the resulting public pressure brought it to an end.
But the Tuskegee study is just one of the more recent and well-known episodes in the centuries-long history of medical neglect, abuse and exploitation of Black Americans.
The exploitation of Black people in the future United States began the moment enslaved Africans first disembarked on these shores, and the medical abuse of the enslaved was inextricably linked to their bondage.
Doctors plied their trade in the slave quarters of Southern plantations to protect the slaveholder’s bottom line, rather than to ensure the well-being of the enslaved, and the cures they offered were often worse than the diseases they aimed to treat.
In return, they got to practice their craft on non-consenting patients with no access to legal remedies should they be harmed in the course of treatment, as many were.
For example, J. Marion Sims, the “father of modern gynecology,” developed his technique for repairing vaginal fistulae by experimenting on enslaved women, without anesthesia.
In his autobiography he recalled operating one woman, Lucy, whose “agony was extreme”; another, named Anarcha, endured 30 such operations at Sims’ hands.
(A statue of Sims remained on display in Central Park until 2018, when it was removed under public pressure.)
The medical abuse of Black people in the name of medicine continued even after their death.
Medical colleges paid enslavers and grave robbers alike for bodies of the Black dead, which were then used to teach cadres of young doctors about human anatomy.
This practice continued after the end of the Civil War, and stories of “night doctors” who murdered Black Southerners ran rampant amid the larger climate of post-bellum racial terrorism.
Similar stories continued to circulate over the course of the next century.
In the 1930s, Cornelius Gardner, a formerly enslaved man, told an interviewer from the Works Progress Administration about the time that he “bumped into … a passel o’ young Baltimore Doctors” who tried to kidnap him for their medical experiments.
Decades later, Bobbette Lacks told journalist Rebecca Skloot about growing up in the predominantly Black neighborhood of East Baltimore, near Johns Hopkins Hospital, in the 1950s, “When it got dark and we were young, we had to be on the steps, or Hopkins might get us.”
Likewise, when dozens of Black children went missing in Atlanta between 1979 and 1981, some African Americans in the city suggested they had been kidnapped by the Centers for Disease Control (CDC).

Dr. Fauci “A Doctored” Fraud
America’s Frontline Doctors’ (AFLDS) Fauci Flip-flop weekly roundup is an ongoing record of the top flubs and flawed advice from President Biden’s chief medical advisor. This week, Dr. Fauci:
Seemed to endorse a future “vaccine passport” for visitors to Yankee Stadium while criticizing the Texas Rangers ball club for starting their 2021 season at 100% capacity:
“I would not start off with 100 percent capacity.”
Continued to speculate in a fact-free way about a supposed connection between coronavirus variants and rising infection rates in states like Michigan.
However, according to a recent study, natural and vaccine immunity are shown to neutralize variant transmission among patients.
Asserted without evidence that maskless children should not be allowed to play with others.
Reminder: Children account for 1.7% to 2% of the diagnosed cases of COVID-19 and have milder symptoms compared to adults.
According to the American Academy of Pediatrics and the Children’s Hospital Association, approximately “1.6% of children with a known case of COVID-19 have been hospitalized and 0.01% have died.”
Backed away from CDC Director Rochelle Walensky’s “impending doom” prediction of a fourth coronavirus surge, even though he once confidently prognosticated “multiple outbreaks” across the country as businesses and parts of civil society were reopening.
“Dr. Fauci appears fixed into a mindset that cannot imagine a post-pandemic America, one where his considerable skills at doom saying and panic are no longer in demand,” said AFLDS.
“The fact remains that we have turned the corner on this virus: natural and vaccine immunity are widespread and states are reopening without significant community transmission of a virus with a 98% recovery rate.
The emperor has no clothes, if he was ever clothed at all, and the naked truth is that Dr. Fauci should be fired immediately and replaced with a more competent physician who can face reality fearlessly.”
Corruption In The European Court
The European Center for Law & Justice (ECLJ) has released a report demonstrating conflicts of interest between European Court of Human Rights (ECHR) judges and NGOs controlled by Bill Gates and George Soros.
The European Court of Human Rights this week ruled compulsory vaccination lawful.
Authored by ECLJ Director Grégor Puppnick PhD, the report says U.S. billionaire George Soros with his Open Society Foundation and Bill Gates’ Microsoft are two of the largest donors to the European Court of Human Rights.
After a 6 month investigation, the ECLJ identified seven NGOs that are both active at the Court, and have judges among their former staff.
At least 22 of the 100 judges who served since 2009 are former staff or leaders of these seven NGOs.
They identified 88 “problematic cases” over the last 10 years. In only 12 cases have judges abstained from sitting because of their connection with an NGO involved, they say.
“And this is a low assessment that does not even take into account the close financial links between NGOs.
For example, we did not identify all cases involving other NGOs funded by the Open Society Foundation, nor did we identify all cases in which a judge from an NGO funded by OSF ruled in cases in which that foundation acted.”
The European Center for Law & Justice concluded that “this situation is serious, and calls into question the independence of the Court and the impartiality of the judges.
These conflicts must be remedied immediately.”
