Why Black People Don't Trust Doctors
Why you won't take the vaccine?
I don't trust those doctors. They stole cells from black people for their research.
1950s: the Polio Vaccine
What, that's great! Let's work on that polio cure!
John Hopkins Medicine
Davin Bodian:I don't think she knew, but a black woman gave us some of her cells.
Basement Serves Blacks
1980s: the HPV Vaccine
Richard Schlegel:Now we're dealing with another African virus. Pass me some more cells!
PARTNER:We cultured some 15 years ago. Here they are.
National Cancer Institute
2020: the COVID-19 vaccine
David Margolius:More viruses! Have any more human cells in stock?
Yeah, I found these cells 30 years ago.
Gee, I never knew those doctors sampled a person's cells without her consent.
Exactly. They never gave the woman, Henrietta Lacks, any credit.
What's worse? Her family still has not received any compensation.
Now We're Supposed to Trust Them?
Wow, that is low. They can keep their vaccine!
