    I find this sickening. We go overseas and tell people how they "should" live and yet we can't (don't care) to even help our own selves! It is obvious that the government does not care about us if it can do this to its own people. Will the general populace ever come together and say enough is enough and clean up our government, or are we doomed to walk as blind sheep?

    This is the first time you've heard about the US government performing cruel experiments on mostly black people? You've got a lot of reading to do!

    Part of the problem is the general populace isn't exposed directly to this type of thing therefore they don't care all that much. It's someone else's problem. Someone else's tragedy. Hell, black men have fought on the side of America, on the side of 'freedom', since the Revolutionary War and it wasn't until the Civil Rights movement in the '60's that for the wheels of equality to really start rolling.

    This is a 'tamer' example compared to some government projects. See MKULTRA and Tuskegee...
