White People Who Got Placebo From White Doctors Felt Better, Study Says –

"In 1807, Thomas Jefferson wrote that one of the best doctors he knew was more likely to use “bread pills, drops of colored water, and powders of hickory ashes” than other medicines —and with equal success in healing people’s ailments.
