#tbt I know you probably don't care but I do... @9ether.energy Pentagon Finally Admits It Used Black Soldiers As Guinea Pigs
Rollins Edwards, a WWII veteran, still suffers the affects of the human testing conducted on him. that is a jar of his skin, that still falls off.
60,000 soldiers of color, mainly black, were used in experiments during WWII. No, this wasn’t Nazi Germany locking people of color in gas chambers, this was done by the US Government.
According to NPR, 60,000 American soldiers of color were enrolled in a secret chemical weapons testing program.
These soldiers were exposed to Lewisite and Mustard gas. Exposured to these chemical agents causes lung irritation and blisters.
These soldiers of color were locked into gas chambers and exposed to the agents. The government used white soldiers as the control group.
They said we were being tested to see what effect these gases would have on Black skins,” said Rollins Edwards, 93, of Summerville, S.C. “You had no choice.
You did not know where you were going. They didn’t tell you anything.” Edwards says his skin still falls off in flakes as a result of the testing. For years, the World War II veteran carried around a jar full of flakes to convince people that something had happened to him.
Although the Pentagon had admitted as early as 1991 that the Army tested mustard gas on enlisted soldiers during World War II and the experiment program was officially declassified in 1993 news about the racial targeting of soldiers was kept under wraps until recently.
This revelation that the Army tested chemical weapons on soldiers of color is both troubling and an outrage, but the concept of Black people being used in medical and other experiments is by no means a new phenomenon. #chakabars
