Re The COVID Vaccine: White Folks First…Please

Why I don’t trust anything coming from the government re medicine and medical treatment regarding black people:

The Tuskegee Study of Untreated Syphilis in the Negro Male was a clinical study conducted between 1932 and 1972 by the United States Public Health Service.

The purpose of this study was to observe the natural history of untreated syphilis; the African American men in the study were only told they were receiving free health care from the Federal government of the United States.

It takes years to develop an effective vaccine.

Trump boasts that his ‘Operation Warp Speed’ has resulted in the development of an effective COVID vaccine in a few months.

Given the history and who and what Trump is, I hope you don’t mind if I choose to let white folks go first…

Despite the fact that I’m in the COVID19 high risk cohort, I can wait…

Anyone who wishes to do so may get their COVID shot ahead of me.

I’ll get my shot after a while…

Thanks
