Joy Behar: Black people shouldn't be hesitant of vaccine because white people were the ‘experiment’

Joy Bewhar, View's cohost, said that people of color don't have to be afraid anymore about the COVID-19 vaccination because it was an experiment.
Sunny Hostin, Sunny's co-host, said that she was shocked by the amount of Americans still unvaccinated. She suggested that fear may be the answer. 56% are fully vaccinated while 65% only have one dose. According to CDC data, only 46% of black Americans had received at least one dose of the coronavirus vaccine by Oct. 4.

I also recall the ad campaign "This is your brain", which featured a drugged brain. The egg was street fried. It works. Hostin explained that fear works unfortunately.


Behar stated that she did not blame the black community for their reluctance to get the vaccine. She cited the Tuskegee experiment in which the U.S. government performed syphilis tests on black Americans without them consenting.

"How do they reach people like the African American audience? For instance, have these Tuskegee trials and other things that have harmed them in the past?" Behar asked. "I don't blame the community for being hesitant about it, but I do think that so many white folks have gotten it now. You know, the experiment was done on white people now.

Whoopi Goldberg, co-host of the show, agreed with Behar.

I've told more people, "Do you see another one at the back?" Is there a tail there? She said.

She claimed that she was the proof vaccines are safe, despite the Tuskegee experiment and other examples of experimentation.


There are many things we can point out about the Tuskegee Experiment. Goldberg said that this isn't one of them. This isn't one of them. Did you say Joy, white people? It's what I said in the beginning: White people are getting it. It's okay to not see them with double heads.
