It's important to recognize that distrust is constantly cultivated in the present. With ongoing health disparities and other forms of inequity and violence, it's not just the legacy of a horrific history that is cultivating distrust - but that the institutions are not trustworthy. We need to put a lot more analytical attention there, in demanding that the institutions like healthcare, that are meant to keep us safe and well, live up to that promise.

Global health scholar Anne Pollock on the dynamics of social inequality, systematic racism and Black health in the United States, and her book Sickening: Anti-Black Racism and Health Disparities in the United States from The University of Minnesota Press.
