Julius Rosenwald and Booker T Washington

Rosenwald and the Tuskegee Experiments

Begun in 1909 and published in 1928, the Oslo study reported on the natural history of untreated syphilis in a group of white males.  The racist assumptions then prevalent in American medicine biased physicians to assume that the disease would probably follow a different course in African-American males.  Hence white scientists saw value in replicating such a study among Black people in the U.S.

Macon County, east of Montgomery, was part of the “black belt” of Alabama so-called because of the rich dark soil.  It was home to the Tuskegee Institute, the foremost black college in the nation, run by Booker T. Washington. The county had few towns and was primarily populated by poor farmers, 90% of them African American.  In the 1930s it was severely depressed economically; and as in all of the South, public facilities were rigidly segregated.  The state spent $65 annually for each white student in the county schools, but only $7 for each black student.  The county had few doctors and only two hospitals, one of which, John Andrew Hospital, was on the grounds of the Tuskegee Institute and was primarily intended for Institute staff and students, even though it also served as the major source of medical care for much of the black community.

Image result for debt crisisTHE VALLEY OF THE SHADOW OF DEBT
By Carolyn Baker, 2006

Never before have political leaders urged such large-scale indebtedness on American consumers to rally the economy. — Kevin Phillips, in American Theocracy: The Peril and Politics Of Radical Religion, Oil, and Borrowed Money In The Twenty-First Century

In a recent conversation with a friend, a married mother of three, she anxiously confided that although she has never been scared about money in her entire adult life, she now, in her mid-forties, finds herself feeling terrified. “Sometimes I wonder,” she said tentatively, “if it’s our own fault or if it’s the world we now live in. I’ve never worked harder in my life, but I’ve never found myself and my family falling so far behind financially.”

[Many] are no doubt hearing similar anguish issuing from the mouths of friends and family, and in all likelihood, thinking similar thoughts, but they know that the frightening quagmire of debt in which (more…)

Project Censored, 2015

An American spy story with more intrigue than James Bond’s best has been unraveling in Australia since 1975 but yet has to grab the attention of our press. While the story is more complex than the proverbial can of worms, it involves:

— CIA involvement in the overthrow of an Australian Prime Minister, Gough Whitlam, representative of the Labor Party;

— Pine Gap, a U.S. satellite and communications base in Australia, said to be our single most important installation for monitoring the Soviet Union and Asia’; Prime Minister Whitlam was trying to shut Pine Gap down when he was ousted; (more…)

MOORER DEPOSITION IN TAILWIND SUITS CONFIRMS ALLEGATIONS OF SARIN USE AGAINST VIETNAM DEFECTORS, POWS – INCRIMINATES CIA, KISSINGER

From The Wilderness has obtained the January 17 deposition of retired Joint Chiefs Chairman Admiral Thomas Moorer taken in connection with a “batch” of civil suits filed in the aftermath of 1997 and 1998 CNN reports relating to a series of 1970 CIA directed missions known as “Tailwind.” Those missions, as originally, and apparently accurately, reported by CNN involved the use of the poison nerve gas Sarin to kill American defectors in Laos. The Moorer deposition not only confirms all of the aspects of the original CNN broadcast, it also suggests that former CNN Producers April Oliver and Jack Smith may have actually understated the extent of Sarin Gas use by U.S. forces under CIA control during the Vietnam war.
