The coronavirus pandemic has been a topic all year in the news and in discussions on social media. There have been differing opinions on the matter and how the governments across the world have handled the situation.

There are plenty of theories out there about vaccines and the impact on lives it creates after doses have been given. This issue is especially a soft spot for African Americans who have a history of distrust in the system due to experiments done in the past such as the Tuskegee experiment.

 

Comedian Marlon Wayans, took to social media, to speak to his fellow HBCU students and reminded them about the Tuskegee experiment explained above.

He stated the following warning!

Dear HBCU students and faculty DO NOT BE THE FIRST TO TRY OUT THIS VACCINE. We are not guinea pigs. Remember the Tuskegee experiment. I love y’all. I attended an HBCU… we ain’t lab rats **^( that.”

In response to his comments social media posted a letter from one of the HBCUs that informed Wayans that in 2020 there are laws in place to prevent the problems of the Tuskegee experiment.
