Black women's history matters in medicine. Read ProPublica's feature piece on how the US is the most dangerous industrialized country in which to give birth, and racial disparities in maternal mortality make it even worse for women of color: https://www.propublica.org/article/nothing-protects-black-women-from-dying-in-pregnancy-and-childbirth And they're seeking your help in understanding the problem. If you nearly died during pregnancy or know someone who died due to childbirth related causes, check out this page for more information: http://propub.li/2Ae5RMi At 0:54, a previous version of this chart mistakenly said "deaths per 1,000 live births," but it is "100,000" instead. The error has been fixed. UPDATE: On Tuesday, April 17, 2018 — New York removed the statue of J. Marion Sims as part of Mayor Bill de Blasio’s review of city markers that could be deemed “symbols of hate.” Subscribe to the ProPublica newsletter: http://go.propublica.org/weekly Subscribe to our channel! http://goo.gl/0bsAjO Vox.com is a news website that helps you cut through the noise and understand what's really driving the events in the headlines.

Why do the videos that mention Black people get heavily disliked? Like I get it's upsetting but this is History, accept that it happened, its effects linger to this day and we as a society have to and will do better.

How is Pearson Education being racist exactly...if it's true that black people rate pain at a higher level, that's something nurses should take into account since it can affect dosage and treatment. Biology cannot be racist smh

White Doctors still believe this.. I dislocated and broke my ankle in 3 places and one of the doctors in charge of resting my ankle wanted to do it without any anesthetic. My whole foot was turned the wrong way and this dude wanted to just yank it back

White Americans should be ashamed of their history and their ancestors' actions. How can you guys sleep at night knowing that you inherited your DNA from those monsters who enslaved African men and women???

Lol black people experiexe pain-- it's just that black people have a stronger will to live because they are imbued with purpose and joy early in life whereas white people throughout time have bred the humanity out of them with wars and disease, and indecent inhumane behavior.

Black women should be credited with the discovery of any medical discoveries using these procedures. This is why black deserve reparations now .

The Mantis Shrimp (17 days ago)
There's no racism in medicine lol. The slightly better but still kinda sad truth is that black people are just a lot poorer on average than white people. It's not a racist problem, a lot of black women just can't afford the medical care that whites can.

The oppressed black people say "black lives matter". Then the oppressors (white people, usually the most idiotic ones) say, "all lives matter". How can they say "all" when they haven't included black people? "All lives matter" is the cry of the stupid people!

Thank you Vox for sharing the truth about medical history in America. We cannot and should not forget these horrors. My mom always taught me black women bodies had been sexualized, undervalued, and mistreated in this America and her history. I am glad that you are sharing this truth with everyone.

Job ch 9 vs 24 The earth is given into the hand of the wicked: he covereth the faces of the judges thereof; if not, where, and who is he? In other words, this world is ran by the European race. But what goes around comes around. Vengeance is mine saith the Lord. Ezekiel ch25 vs14 And I will lay my vengeance upon Edom (Europeans) by the hand of my people Israel (Black people in the Americas): and they shall do in Edom according to mine anger and according to my fury; and they shall know my vengeance, saith the Lord GOD Isaiah ch 14 vs 2 And the people shall take them, and bring them to their place: and the house of Israel shall possess them in the land of the LORD for servants and handmaids: and they shall take them captives, whose captives they were; and they shall rule over their oppressors.

During WWII, Unit 731 of the Imperial Japanese army also did the same inhuman medical experiments on the Chinese people and Korean people. The development of their medical technology was based on the cruel tests on the human body. We cannot replace our ancestors to forgive these murderers because we never experience their hopelessness, what we should do is always remember the history and let our offspring remember this too.

It makes sense if you've been oppressed from everything to where you can believe anything how are you supposed to heal? It disgusts me that people are still suffering today because of what other people's ancestors had done to their ancestors. Fix that racist predominantly white people.

3:17 when I read that I had to pause the video and calm down. That made me so mad; it’s moments like these when I wish time travel was feasible so I could make the same observation but instead the doctor would be my “willing “ volunteer and light skinned legs are the changes variable. In all seriousness, how did these “educated” men actually commit these experiments on another human being with no regard for their wellbeing and truly believe that they are doing God’s work? Truly astonishing that it was 100% rational for a master to not consider blacks as not fully human; only 3/5 yet as good Protestants preach that we are all equal under God.

As a child, I've been accused by my doctor that I was lying about having a bad sore throat to skip school. My mom use to be a nurse and could look at me and see how red my throat was so she raised hell until he gave me antibiotics. He didnt even want to check me properly at first. Didn't know about planned parenthood but it makes sense, although they help in several areas, they push abortion even if you already tell them you don't want one (my personal experience).
Cheyenne Winn (1 month ago)
Dr. Rupa Marya also talks about trained medical behavior to ignore black women and how she had to check her male co-worker as well as herself when the patient was saying she had pain and the procedure that should follow. There are so many stories about doctors being so careless that if you don't know how to fight for yourself or how to get people to listen the results can be disastrous

There will never be equality. You can't benefit from the slave labor of these people, release them, then suddenly act like they should be on the same economic level? Then you remove their ability to reproduce by sterilization. We are no better than these other countries where dictators are killing their own people.

We shouldn’t destroy the statue he did wrong things to bring good thing. Everything he did was wrong but during that age or year it was a “socially acceptable” thing. They should add a statue of the brave 17 year old girl because the girl herself is a hero for our modern medication.
