Fear of the Healer

Who knew, some American doctors could tell so much, just by the colour of your skin. If your skin colour happens to be black, doctors believe you don’t feel pain as much as the white man.

If you are not white, American doctors might think that you are probably lying about your condition and pain. You will not receive the same treatment even with the same insurance coverage. African and Native American women have been sterilized without consent in America.

The way native and African Americans have been treated by medical practitioners in the US, has caused them to fear and distrust the so called healer. In this episode we will discuss medical racism. How minorities in the US have been treated by the health industry historically and in contemporary times.

Why do so many African Americans distrust the US health system especially when it comes to vaccines? And how does medical racism affect the overall well being and health of minorities in America?
