Thanks for posting Dr. Degruy. I first saw her speak about PTSS years ago on the local show Like It Is.
I wanted to go see her speak at the African Slave Burial Ground Memorial in NYC a few months ago, but it was canceled b/c of a major winter snowstorm that we hadUnhappy

Just a few weeks ago, there was an article from the NYT about the possibility of people inheriting anxiety and stress disorders because of trauma that their ancestors experienced. I thought about her message.

8 Accounts of Black People Being Used As Guinea Pigs 

blackaudacity:

Gynecology Invented Through The Torture of Black Women

In the 19th century, the father of modern gynecology, J. Marion Sims, conducted his research experiments on enslaved Black women. Sims performed the invasive and torturous procedures without anesthesia. J. Marion Sims’ justification for choosing not to anesthetize his test subjects was that he did not believe Black women felt pain at all. In an 1857 lecture, he stated that it was “not painful enough to justify the trouble”.

The Tuskegee Experiment

The Tuskegee Institute and the Public Health Service began a study of the natural progression of syphilis involving 600 Black men (399 with syphilis, 201 uninfected) in 1932. The infected men involved in the study were never made aware of their condition upon diagnosis and believed they were being treated for “bad blood”. In exchange for their participation, the men received free medical examinations and burial insurance. They were never treated for the disease. These trials went on until 1972 when the study was exposed by The Associated Press. The remaining victims and their family members won a $10,000,000 reparations settlement which guaranteed them lifetime health coverage and burial insurance.

The Pellagra Incident
Pellagra is an ailment commonly caused by a lack of niacin (vitamin B-13) in the human diet. The symptoms include skin lesions, sunlight sensitivity, dementia and ends in death. At the turn of the twentieth century, millions of people in the United States died from this disease. Scientists claimed that the cause of the disease was a toxin found in corn. In 1915, the U.S. Surgeon General ordered government funded experiments on Black prisoners afflicted with pellagra. Poor diet and niacin deficiency was found to be the cause. However, these life-saving findings were not released to the public until 1935 because the majority of Pellagra-induced deaths affected Black communities.

The Ebb Cade Experiment

In 1945, African-American Ebb Cade, a 53-year-old truck driver, was secretly injected with plutonium, the substance used to make nuclear bombs. After breaking several of his bones in automotible accident, he was rushed to the emergency room. Unbeknownst to Ebb Cade, he was in the care of doctors that were also U.S. Atomic Agency employees. For six months, he was held in the hospital under the belief that they were treating his injuries. During that time, he was injected with more than 40 times the amount of plutonium an average person is exposed to in a lifetime. The doctors and researchers collected bone samples and extracted 15 teeth to monitor the effects of his exposure. Ebb Cade grew suspicious of his broken-bone treatments and escaped from the hospital. Unfortunately, Cade suffered from the brutal effects of intense radiation until he died from heart failure eight years later at the age of 61.

Weaponized Mosquito Experiment

In the early 1950′s, the United States government conducted an experiment to see if mosquitoes could be weaponized. The CIA and the U.S. military released nearly a half million mosquitoes carrying  yellow fever and dengue fever viruses into several Black communities in Florida. In the predominantly Black community of Avon Park, dozens of Black people became ill, eight dying as a result of this government-issued mosquito attack.

Infants Injected With Test Drugs In Los Angeles

In June 1990, more than 1500 six-month old Black and Hispanic babies in Los Angeles were given what seemed to be a standard measles vaccination. The parents were not told that this particular vaccine, Edmonston Zagreb measles vaccine (EZ), was still in its research phase and not approved by the FDA. The EZ vaccine already had a reputation in Senegal, Guinea Bissau and Haiti, triggering an increased death rate among infant girls, most not living past the age of two. The Center for Disease Control would later confess that the infants were injected with an experimental vaccination without their parent’s knowledge. Presently, it is believed that many of these families are still unaware that their babies were used as guinea pigs.

The Toxic Sludge Experiment of Baltimore and St. Louis

In the year 2000, Federally funded researchers from John Hopkins University, the EPA, HUD, The Kennedy Krieger Institute and Department of Agriculture spread sludge from a sewage treatment plant on the lawns of nine low-income families, and a vacant lot in Baltimore and East St. Louis.  The families and residents were told the sludge was safe and not informed about the toxic mixture of human and industrial waste the sludge contained. The research was conducted to see if the toxic waste absorbed into the water supply could effectively reduce lead levels in children.

Children Forcibly Vaccinated in Chad

In December 2012, at least 500 children in Gouro, Chad were forcibly given the MenAfriVac during school resulting in dangerous side effects including convulsions, and paralysis. Parents were not notified of any plans to vaccination their children at school and parental consent was never requested. The forced vaccinations were part of an aggressive healthcare initiative sponsored by several internationally revered organizations including the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, the World Health Organization and UNICEF.

Did you know that George Washington Carver, the master scientist, was physically castrated at a very young age
by his White plantation owners?

Back male slaves that were assigned to work in their master's house were often castrated.

Although it was the white slave owner that were raping their black slaves (males, females and children ) they --with an absurd degree of hypocrisy --believed that black males were sexual deviant that could not control their sexual urges.
The slave owners therefor believe that such castration of innocent Black boys was necessary to protect their daughters and wife from their slaves.

The fact that Carver was castrated at an early age explains why his voice tone was so high. Carver voice tone was so high because his male hormones were never able to kick in. Male hormones (depending on the person) usually kick in between the ages of 9-16 years old.

That is a wide range of years. After the male hormones kick in, it causes your voice to naturally become deeper with more of a base tone.

A person castrated before puberty almost never displays any secondary sexual characteristics.

This is also the reason why George Washington Carver never had any children.
I am sure that the physical castration may also be the reason why Carver never married.

Physical castration means that you cannot have sexual relations with anyone. There is not even an urge or desire to have sexual relationships after castration.

Black people we have been given a revamped "whitewashed" version of history. A version that make whites appear less historically inhumane by hiding the true brutality of how they have treated we blacks throughout history.

Black people conduct your own research and learn our true history.

It is your responsibility to educate yourself on the difference between what is right and what is reality. Take time out soon to watch this 2 hour film to learn about the terrorism against American citizens that occurred on US soil.

To keep things in perspective, the incidents in this film happened only 12 years before I was born. Click here for the free PBS documentary: http://www.pbs.org/wgbh/americanexperience/freedomriders/watch
