FINAL WRITING ASSIGNMENT 2
Introduction
In 1932, the US Public Health Service started an experiment aimed to study the natural
occurrence of untreated Syphilis. This experiment highlighted racial differences or unequal
treatment with black and white Americans in the state. This study violates the values of black
Americans by involving them in the experiment without their consent. There were 600 black men
involved in the Tuskegee study – 399 were suffered from Syphilis, and 201 were used as the
control group. Researches told respondents that they are receiving healthcare benefits from the
healthcare institute and do not tell them the real purpose of the experiment. The thing that was
ensured for those involved in the study was free medical tests, meals, and burial matters. The
timeline of this study was 40 years.
The Tuskegee study was ethically and morally unjustified. Researches and experimenters
do not allow respondents to leave the study once they choose to involve in it. Instead of posing a
solution, the study brings several problems for its subjects, and the only solution left for the team
of researchers was to stop the study. This study leads to the death of many African-American,
and because of racial differences, researchers and experimenters did not take any action. Against
this unethical study, a lawsuit has been filed. In return, participants of the study and survivors of
those who died during the experiment were provided with lifetime medical benefits. This study
highlights that black males are more sexually active than white males. Another result that this
research has posed is that black males are more inclined towards white women, while other
males are inclined towards the same-race partners. Through these results, researchers aimed to
highlight that these are inherent racial instincts that become the cause of disease in them
(BRANDT, 2010).
