Do what's right for Black women take down the statue of J. Marion Sims outside of the NYAM

J. Marion Sims was a gynecologist who purchased Black women slaves and used them as guinea pigs from 1845 to 1849 for his " experiments". He repeatedly performed inhumane genital surgery on slave women without anesthesia of any kind. His reasoning was " Black women do not feel pain like White women." He mutilated these poor women and called it " research". He was no different than Nazi physician Josef Mengele. 

I am calling on the New York Academy of Medicine and the City of New York to take down the statue of a sadistic racist who mutliated Black women.
