    • Dear German,

      I am glad you posted “How classism and racism effects Human Experimentation.” One sentence that stood out to me is, “They lied and deceived the people in the trials in order to get the results they wanted” (Jimenez). This stood out to me because this is a tool of hegemony called propaganda. It is really interesting to see how long the tools of hegemony has been in play. It is also cool that you talk about the World War II, the Tuskegee Study, and the Nazis. Thank you for your writing. I look forward to seeing what you will write next.

    • Dear German,

      There are different perspectives about how others see using “black people” in the study. For one, some claim that the reason black people were used in the study was to prove to white people that they are the same, whatever treatment the white people used, also works on blacks, vice versa. Does that still count as racism?
      Thank you for sharing your voice.

    • hey german it’s takeo I go to the same school as u and I just wanna say that I’m impressed on what u wrote here. good job and keep it up

    • Dear German,
      I am interested in your writing about how classism and racism affects human experimentation. One part of reading that stood out to me was “This shows racism and classism because they chose a group of black males who were already in poverty and had no real access to medical care. This would make them want to sign up because they would receive free clinical screenings but in reality they were not concerned about their health at all.” This stood out to me because they wanted black mens to join because they knew that they would because of the circumstance they were in. Also it was really mean that they would do that because all they wanted them was for data and not care about their health. Which it was a lot of classism and racism during that time with the Tuskegee Study. Thank you for writing. I look forward to seeing you write more and share your writing because it’s very interesting.

    I am moved by your memoir, “Reflecting on the Significance of My Name in 2018” because I also didn’t like my name when I was younger and wanted everyone to call me something different.

    • German,
      I think this an interesting take on a modern version of Romeo and Juliet. I agree that a modern day story would involve races rather than the different kingdoms. I am not sure what the assignment was, but I would love to see this story expanded and brought to life because it is a really interesting one. I think the story of Romeo and Juiiet could be created in a multitude of ways but this type about race is definitely applicable in this day and age. Thank you for your post.
