Black people's reasoning for not trusting the COVID-19 vaccine is rooted in the medical field’s history of racism and past experimentation on Black people.

Historically Black people have been subjected to wrongful experimentation, harmful disregard, and blatant disrespect within the medical profession. So when a COVID-19 vaccine was created Dec. 2020, months after the massive spread of a deadly virus, one can understand why Black people have widely rejected the idea of early vaccination.

Enrichment needs perspective.
