SPOTUS Jo Jo was busy explaining why Black people won’t get vaccinated, and then it all went sideways:
“(Older Blacks) had memories of …. experimentations on Black American that were not told about, like what happened uh, the… you know…., the Tuskegee Airmen… eh all those guys and so th th th there’s a great reluctance.” Love the Max Headroom stutter for effect.
Yes – we experimented with Black Men during WW2 to see if they could fly P-40 (photo) and P-51 Fighters and B-25 Mitchell Bombers in combat missions. The "Red Tails" were some of the bravest and most feared pilots in WW2. I can totally see why Black people in 2021 are terrified of untested vaccines because Black men were thrown into some of the best aviation equipment in the war 80 years ago.
OH! The Tuskegee “Experiment” – Officially known as “Tuskegee Study of Untreated Syphilis in the Negro Male”. Where the Government ran a 40-year-long syphilis experiment on Black men without telling them or treating them? THAT Tuskegee deal? The one started under FDR in 1932 to determine the long-term effects and survivability of syphilis?
Yeah – Being a racist and a Democrat (which – is pretty much one in the same), FDR fired up the Public Health Service and the CDC; who told the Black men participating in the study they were receiving free health care from the federal government of the United States.
They instead were infected – 400 of them, all poor, share-cropping Black men from Macon County Georgia - with Syphilis; with no intent of ever treating them for it. You read that right: None of the infected men were ever treated with Penicillin, despite it being widely available.
Despite losing it’s funding early on, the program continued until it was leaked to the press in November of 1972 – by then, 28 men had died as a direct result of syphilis, 100 had died of complications from syphilis, 40 of their wives had become infected and 19 of their children were born with it.
So – what have we learned?
Jo Jo is a complete and total imbecile – yet again.
Don’t trust free government healthcare
Government Programs never die, they just find alternative funding
Democrats are racist
Honestly, I’m waiting for Jo Jo to roll into a Black neighborhood and tell them that if they don’t get vaccinated, they ain’t Black. Jill and Kamala tried to rally the Black community in TN to get vaccinated and couldn't even get an NFL roster's worth of takers.
