Tuskegee re-examined

2004-01-22 17:10:00.422334+00 by Dan Lyke 2 comments

Remember the tale of black syphillis patients left untreated "for science"? It's a tale oft-quoted when people talk about experimental ethics and review boards and the like. Via Arts & Letters Daily, I strongly recommend the essay Tuskegee re-examined

An interesting article. It remionds me a bit about the rash of black church burnings a few years ago, which became a national problem, only that roughly the same number of tiny, wooden, isolated white churches were burning down as well.

Between the media and historians with an agenda, the past is twisted to suit. Excellent article/essay.
