2 or so degrees of separation between J. Marion Sims and Donald Trump

Unknown

Architect Marion Sims Wyeth was an American architect who designed Mar-a-Lago, Trump’s little palace, in Palm Beach, Florida.

Wyeth’s grandfather was J. Marion Sims, the so-called father of gynecology who practiced his technique on slaves. The statue of J. Marion Sims  still stands in Central Park, despite all protest.

Just a curious connection that somehow seems….appropriate. Interesting to think who is somehow now profiting in yet another way from hate, racism, slavery. Less importantly, from bad science.
