    The year 1930, Macon County, Alabama an experiment took place with black males.
    "Bad Blood." was the call for rural black males for testing by "government doctors."
    Their real fate would not be realizes as testing and observing continued as they died.
    Through the years, their condition went untreated as physicians bask of discovery.
    40 years black males proved to be human guinea pigs for syphilis experimentation.
    This despite the miracle wonder of penicillin 1940, physicians refused to treat subjects.
    The long-term effect proved its damage created by this deadly germ to the human body.
    Pain, suffering, whole families affected as the moral issue went unquestioned.
    Finally, July 25, 1972 the real story broke in Washington Star of the human experiment.
    Changes were taken new laws were made but we must never forget Tuskegee study.
