Two esteemed French doctors have openly stated on French television that any new vaccine created to combat COVID-19 should first be tested on impoverished people in Africa. The two doctors, Jean-Paul Mira and Camille Locht, speaking on French broadcast network LCI said that Africa should be ground zero for testing of a new vaccine because poor people there have less medical supplies and equipment. Their highly offensive conversation went as follows:
JEAN-PAUL MIRA: “If I can be provocative, shouldn’t we do this study in Africa where there are no masks, no treatment, no intensive care? A bit like we did in some studies on AIDS. We tried things on prostitutes because they are highly exposed and do not protect themselves.”
CAMILLE LOCHT: “You’re right. We are actually thinking of a parallel study in Africa to use with the same kind of approach with BGC placebos. We will in fact think seriously about it.”
The conversation sparked outrage and bewilderment among many observers, who no doubt know the long history of colonial Europe and Medical Apartheid. One of Africa’s lead football stars, Didier Drogba (from Ivory Coast) declared, “Africa is not a testing lab. I would like to vividly denounce those demeaning, false and most of all deeply racist words.” Demba Ba tweeted, “Welcome to the West, where white people believe themselves to be so superior that racism and debility become commonplace.” To say that what the doctors discussed was based on anything other than racism that allows white people to view Africa as their medical testing grounds would be disingenuous. Africa as a whole has done a much better job of preventing the spread of the virus. The entire continent from north to south, east to west has had a total of 6,700 cases, whereas France alone has had almost 60,000 cases. Perhaps either France or Italy should be ground zero for any future testing of a vaccine.
It was not surprise for me! If you did not read yet my friend, I recommend you to read Guns Germs and Steel by Jared Diamond to understand Eurocentrism of whites in the history of planet earth. There is also documentary style of the book on youtube, but I did not watch it, I’ve just read the book.
Wow do you have the link to the YouTube documentary? If not I will try to locate it.
In here there is one of them:
Thank you so much
You’re welcome, my friend!:)
I have put in a lot of effort in the blog. Kindly check it out and drop s follow
Indeed you have a very nice blog!
Those doctors are not alone. It seems to be an open secret among the medical community that Africans are ‘guinea pigs.’ Many are giddy to conduct all sorts of experiments on Africans in the name of Covid19.
Have you read the book called ‘Medical Apartheid’ by Harriet Washington, Angela?
I heard of it but haven’t read it. Will check it out.
I learned a lot I never know about that this government has done to Black Americans. Everyone knows about the Tuskegee experiment but really that’s only the tip of the iceberg.
just got it.
That brutal arrogance underscores just how little has actually changed in every aspect of nice self-whiteous polite societiy. Absolute disregard for their former colonies doesn’t even deserve a second thought for those who refuse to learn *any* lessons from their eternal record of brutality.
I imagine what these two creeps said is what many European doctors say behind closed doors all the time. It’s proof that nothing has changed at all in regards to racist colonial attitudes.
“Perhaps either France or Italy should be ground zero for any future testing of a vaccine.”
Perhaps the U.S. should be ground zero for any future testing of a vaccine.” There, I fixed it for them! The U.S. is #1 in coronavirus cases and so why not start here?
And test the vaccine on Donald Trump, then Mike Pence, Mitch McConnell, Nancy Pelosi, Chuck Schumer, Joe Biden, Lindsey Graham, Mike Pompeo and the list is endless. Start with those criminals. Go through the halls of congress and test the vaccine on all of those worthless slugs and then let’s sit back and wait to see what happens.
Am I appalled over what those two parasitic leeches said? Hell no! Especially given the fact that some African countries are still paying what amounts to a ‘slave tax’ to France. Why in the world would I pay a tax to a country that colonized mine and is still to this day, refusing to get the hell out and also refuses to return stolen artifacts? I would not!
The reason Africa has not completely blown up with coronavirus like Spain, Italy, France and the U.S. is because Africa is used to dealing with Ebola, malaria and other tropical diseases and knows to take any hint of an outbreak or pandemic, seriously.
And people wonder why I go all out on my blog, this would be why! For the love of !!!!!!!
I agree I should have said USA instead of France or Italy, though any of these diseased, white majority countries will do. I love that you go all out on your blog. I was so happy to see you are still blogging because I’d taken a really long break and noticed a lot of my fellow bloggers are no longer active.
I’m not surprised by what these guys said either, but more-so that they were so vocal about their diabolical agenda on television for all the world to hear. They really just don’t give a shit and believe the former colonies are their medical experimentation grounds.
I’m not surprised by the action, but by the fact that they’d say it on live television for everyone to know their game plan.
