Medical Apartheid: The Dark History of. - Democracy Now!

THIS IS A MUST READ!!!
I enjoyed every bit of reading this book, definitely well written, easy to read and has you wanting more. I think the cover alone was a great conversational piece, compelled a lot of people to inquire about it. The sad truth is that everything in the book actually happened and is still happening, so it does take you back at the realization of how blacks have been treated and continue to be mistreated. But this book was an extremely informative book, and so well written that I strongly encourage everyone read it especially black people.

The author is pretentious and boring. Reads like some sort of thesis, not an interesting narrative. Maybe it's not supposed to be interesting, just shocking. I do believe the information given is very important and should be disseminated, but the author's tone is condescending. I chose not to finish this one. I hope there is another book on this topic that is better written; if I find it, I will read it!

This book is definitely an eye-opener and quite shocking to say the least. It delves beyond the infamous Tuskegee Syphilis Experiment and discusses other instances of shady medical practices. It is a book that should be required reading in schools.

The most notorious medical experiment in American history was surely the Tuskegee syphilis study, in which 400 black men with syphilis were left untreated for 40 years, from 1932 until 1972, so government doctors could study the course of the disease. The experiment ended only because a journalist exposed it, igniting a firestorm of public outrage over its racism and cruelty. By then, as many as 100 of the men had already died of syphilis.

Tuskegee was just part of a pattern of experimental abuse, one of many shameful chapters in what Harriet A. Washington calls “the long, unhappy history of medical research with black Americans.”

Ms. Washington, a journalist and research scholar in ethics, writes in “Medical Apartheid” that this history has left blacks with an ugly legacy of distrust for research and even treatment, and that it is a lingering stain on the history of medicine.
