Why would anyone remove the organs of a Black child? And what would they do with those organs once they were removed?
1: Black men, women, and children are the most targeted because they are the least powerful.
When a white child goes missing, the entire world knows it. The white controlled media picks up the story. White supremacist law enforcement officers divert resources to solve the case. And white communities come together to for search parties and raise reward money.
The Black community is so divided that it is incapable of creating media companies, investigation networks, and community based efforts that would give missing Black children the same magnitude of scrutiny.
And since Black wealth is substantially lower than that of other groups, loved ones of the missing and the deceased struggle to raise funds for new investigations, autopsies, and searches.
2: Black bodies are targeted for their superior genetic makeup.
There is a reason why the greatest athletes in history have all been Black – and it has everything to do with differences between our physiology and that of other racial groups.
The following comes from Live Science:
Since 1968, all of the world record holders in the men’s 100-meter dash have been Black athletes. And since 1912, when the International Association of Athletics Federations started keeping track of the record holders in that event, only 10 non-black athletes out of 38 individuals have held the title.
“There is a whole body of evidence showing that there are distinct differences in body types among Blacks and whites,” said researcher Edward Jones, who researches adolescent obesity, nutrition and body composition at Howard University. “These are real patterns being described here. Whether the fastest sprinters are Jamaican, African or Canadian, most of them can be traced back generally to Western Africa.”
As another example of our superior genetic makeup, take the case of Henrietta Lacks. She is the most valuable woman alive today. The thing is – she died in 1951.
After her death, her ‘immortal’ cells lived on in laboratories, where white Doctors from around the world have subjected the cells to more than 74,000 studies, grew more than 20 tons of them, and filed 11,000 patents worth billions of dollars.
All this was done in secret for 20 years. It would take another 40 years for the family to so much as be asked for their permission. But by then, the precedent was set.
The exploitation of Henrietta Lacks has opened a Pandora’s box for medical exploitation. Companies spend $23 Billion on biological samples used to develop for-profit drugs. While these samples come from a number of places, one of their prime sources are abortion clinics. And Black bodies frequent abortion clinics disproportionately more often than other groups.
Back in 2016, Panned Parenthood was busted for profiting on the sale of the organs of fetuses they aborted. Clinics had been charging women for abortions and then make even more selling that tissue to drug companies.
Medical Apartheid – A History of Black Bodies Being Sacrificed For White Lives
One of the oldest weapons of white supremacy is infection – exposure to disease. There are three ways that infection has been used as a weapon in the past: quarantine, direct infection with weaponized diseases, and experimental infection.
While we have discussed quarantine and weaponization in the past, for the purpose of this article, we will go deeper into the third tactic – Experimentation for Extermination.
Historically, medical experimentation on Black plantations and colonies was frequent, widespread, and common place.
White physicians faced few, if any, obstacles in consuming black corpses and taking advantage of colonial or slave subjects for medical education and research. The plantation and the colony functioned as an experimental site conveniently hidden from public view and scrutiny.
It was on these plantations that J. Marion Simms – the so-called Father of Modern gynecology – experimented on Black women and children with no anesthesia.
Later, hospitals and private government facilities were used to experiment on Black bodies.
For instance, In 1927 when Vertus was five-years old, he and several other black children from Lyles Station Elementary in Indiana were deceived by the local county hospital to take part in radiation experiments. Vertus’ parents as well as the other black parents were told that their children were going to be part of study that helped to cure wing worm scalp infections. However, what they ended up being a part of is the testing of radiation on the human body and mind. As a result of the experiments, Vertus was left with a hole in his head that exposed his brain for the rest of his life. He was lucky – the other children didnt survive.
Prisons got in on the game, too.
For example, in Acres of Skin we learned that between 1965 and 1966 a white Dr. Kligman exposed approximately seventy-five Black prisoners at Holmesburg in Pennsylvania to high doses of dioxin, the contaminant responsible for Agent Orange’s toxicity.
His experimentation on Black prisoners led him to develop a compound called Retin-A that earned Kigman and his family millions in royalties. He died in 2010.

Finally, with the first successful organ transplantation in 1954 Black bodies became targets for the valuable organs they held.
