In the 90s, J. L. A. Garcia came up with a specific proposal for the African American perspective on bioethics. The text describes the specificity of that approach in bioethics; in particular, it focuses on the concept of race used by Garcia in the context of historical changes of this idea in the 20th century. African American bioethics revaluates the notion of race, but do not totally rejects it. On the contrary, African American bioethics does not favor of “color blindness”, which is not conducive to the emancipation (eg. in the context of medicine).
