Why Black People Don't Trust Whites:

I thought I had heard every story about how black people got exploited during the 20th Century, starting with the Tuskegee Airmen, and the CIA experiments mind control in Toronto in the 1970s, but this interview I heard on NPR today about Henrietta Lacks-who died in 1952-and her cancer cells that live in laboratories around the world to this day fried my brain cells.

The interview doesn't cover all the bases. The Spittoon details problems with the HeLa cell line that should force research scientists to not trust their own results.
