This is old news... The HIV virus was first detected in a certain strain of monkey kidney in a lab in Philadelphia, PA. Monkey Kidneys have been used to create vaccines like for Polio. The kidneys with the HIV strain were sent to Europe to create a vaccine to be given to the People of Africa. This is what 2 doctors at stanford found out. They thought they had infected people by using the same needle repeatedly but it turned out to be the vaccine.

This is old news... The HIV virus was first detected in a certain strain of monkey kidney in a lab in Philadelphia, PA. Monkey Kidneys have been used to create vaccines like for Polio. The kidneys with the HIV strain were sent to Europe to create a vaccine to be given to the People of Africa. This is what 2 doctors at stanford found out. They thought they had infected people by using the same needle repeatedly but it turned out to be the vaccine.

Black people with no scientific background already knew that it was purposely given to Black people to reduce their population.

It is no different than purposely infecting African-Americans with syphilis, Africans with Ebola, South Africans with HIV, African-American communities with drugs, or Black people being used in surgical experiments during slavery. Native Americans were given disease infected blankets by the settlers to remove them from the land.

There have been efforts by European countries throughout the centuries to replace or remove Black Africans for their resources by either man-made epidemics or sterilization under the umbrella of manifest destiny and now under the disguise of humanitarian aid.

European Jewish converts in Israel was caught doing that to their African population, and they were probably doing it to the Palestinians too.

What that accidental vaccine theory doesn't account for is that HIV cases started to show up both with Black Africans in Africa and homosexuals in the US at the same time.

It simply being and accident never made sense.

It is not surprising that POC generally don't trust people of European descent. Not specific individuals but as a people and culture in general. The most important example in medical history is Henrietta Lacks (Black Woman)!

Not the first time and probably won't be the last. Been going on throughout history.

Makes you think twice about getting a vaccine.

The films premise is “irresponsible and medically dubious”? No problem.

So much mistrust already. How many Pakistani children die from Polio for example because the health workers face daily death threats?

True or not, this kind of inflammatory story about racial extremists will only add fuel to the tensions and help confirm prejudices all round.

I for one will not be paying to watch this thing.

You are shifting responsibility from the people who did such a great wrong - those who tried to infect people of colour with HIV - onto the film-makers and other people who have investigated and publicized these efforts at mass murder. Your boycott is misguided if it involves keeping people ignorant of this appalling crime.

How utterly repulsive it would be it wouldn't surprise me in the slightest if proven to be actually true.
