J. Marion Sims was a gynecologist in the 1800s who purchased Black women slaves and used them as guinea pigs for his untested surgical experiments. He repeatedly performed genital surgery on Black women WITHOUT ANESTHESIA because according to him, “Black women don’t feel pain.” Despite his inhumane tests on Black women, Sims was named “the father of modern gynecology”, and his statue currently stands right outside of the New York Academy of Medicine.
SOME statues really do need to come down.
But not the way the hypocrites are going about it.
They do not actually care.
They want the show, the photo ops.
May Sanity and the Goodness of people prevail.
