I only wish I were in the room when Dr. “Fraudci” made the statement to Black people about the vaccine.
Here’s what Fauci said:

That smug little racist essentially said to Black people,
“It’s ok for Black people to take a vaccine for a disease that kills practically nobody because the vaccine was partially developed by a Black woman.”
What a thing to say to Black people?! Completely racist.
I wonder if it’s ok for Black people to take all the other meds we take that were developed by non-Blacks? Or is that cultural appropriation?
It’s all safe for Black people, because a Black chick named Kizzy “got yo back”, Silly Negroes!
What’s next, Fauci?
“You ain’t Black unless you take take this vaccine?”
No wait. Tell Black people that the vaccine will cure sickle cell. Even better, tell Black people the vaccine tastes like chicken!
Sadly, Fauci reminded me of a little experiment known as the Tuskegee Experiment.
According to the History Channel:
The Tuskegee experiment began in 1932, at at a time when there was no known treatment for syphilis. After being recruited by the promise of free medical care, 600 men originally were enrolled in the project.
The participants were primarily sharecroppers, and many had never before visited a doctor. Doctors from the U.S. Public Health Service (PHS), which was running the study, informed the participants—399 men with latent syphilis and a control group of 201 others who were free of the disease—they were being treated for bad blood, a term commonly used in the area at the time to refer to a variety of ailments.
The men were monitored by health workers but only given placebos such as aspirin and mineral supplements, despite the fact penicillin became the recommended treatment for syphilis in 1947. PHS researchers convinced local physicians in Macon County not to treat the participants, and research was done at the Tuskegee Institute. (Now called Tuskegee University, the school was founded in 1881 with Booker T. Washington at its first teacher.)
In order to track the disease’s full progression, researchers provided no effective care as the men died, went blind or insane or experienced other severe health problems due to their untreated syphilis.
During the mid-1960s, a PHS venereal disease investigator in San Francisco named Peter Buxton found out about the Tuskegee study and expressed his concerns to his superiors that it was unethical. In response, PHS officials formed a committee to review the study but ultimately opted to continue it, with the goal of tracking the participants until all had died, autopsies were performed and the project data could be analyzed.
As a result, Buxton leaked the story to a reporter friend, who passed it on to a fellow reporter, Jean Heller of the Associated Press. Heller broke the story in July 1972, prompting public outrage and forcing the study to shut down.
By that time, 28 participants had perished from syphilis, 100 more had passed away from related complications, at least 40 spouses had been diagnosed with it and the disease had been passed to 19 children at birth.
But here’s a little tidbit Fauci probably never thought of. That little experiment cost the US Government $10M in reparations for the victims of this hideous crime.
Surely, that was a big enough lesson to stop the government from engaging in racist experiments, especially regarding healthcare.
I remember Kizzy from Roots
Remember Roots? The ripoff Alex Haley pulled from another writer. Still, the mini-series was a huge success back in the 70s.
The protagonist of the docudrama was Kunta Kinte. Kunta married a fellow slave, named Belle Waller. The two birthed a daughter they name Kizzy (Keisa, in Mandinka ). In the language of Mandinka, “keisa” means “to stay put”.
I wonder if they have a meaning for “to stay stupid”?
