In an interview with “The Breakfast Club,” a radio show in New York City, rapper Nick Cannon said Planned Parenthood is committing a genocide against black Americans.
“Hillary was sneaking and cheating,” Cannon said. “Think about all the stuff they did with Planned Parenthood and all that type of stuff. That type of stuff is to take our community — and forget gentrification, it’s real genocide, and it’s been like that for years. This system is not built for us.”
He’s not wrong. Planned Parenthood’s founder, Margaret Sanger, was a racist and a eugenicist who wanted to stop “biologically unfit” persons from having children. She was a big hit when speaking to a woman’s chapter of the Klu Klux Klan, and confessed in a letter that she wanted to “exterminate the Negro population.”
“We do not want word to get out that we want to exterminate the Negro population and the minister is the man who can straighten out the idea if it ever occurs to any of their more rebellious members,” Sanger wrote in a letter dated from 1939. In 1934, Sanger proposed a federal law that would legislate who could have children. Here’s an excerpt:
Article 8. Feeble-minded persons, habitual congenital criminals, those afflicted with inheritable disease, and others found biologically unfit by authorities qualified judge should be sterilized or, in cases of doubt, should be so isolated as to prevent the perpetuation of their afflictions by breeding.
Currently, Planned Parenthood kills more than 850 African-Americans a day in its abortion clinics. African-Americans account for 37 percent of all abortions, yet only represent 13 percent of the population.
