Every debate that we have, is typically, about how much access to whiteness, we either do or do not have, and how much we give it to others or don't... Most of our culture is centered around how much we can make our peoplehood look like them.
I heard someone mention the Tuskegee Syphilis Study...and every time I hear that word, I cringe, because it's not really the Tuskegee Syphilis Study. Tuskegee University did not harbor that study. It was done there. It was the United States Public Health Service Tuskegee Syphilis Study, to watch the progression of syphilis, which we already knew happened from the Oslo Study in the 1800s. So, there was no reason for that study.
