Eugenics, Planned Parenthood and the Negro Dilemma

The term eugenics was coined in 1883 by English scientist Francis Galton, a cousin to Charles Darwin, and was derived from the Greek word eu (good) and genos (birth) meaning “well-born, of good stock, of noble race”. Eugenics is a white supremacist pseudoscience that is based upon eliminating all humans they deem “unfit”. Francis Galton thought that if “talented” people only married other “talented” people they would produce much better offspring. Initially, Eugenicists implemented positive eugenics, which was for white people to reproduce so many offspring that it would overwhelm the “unfit” black population but, that did not work because non melaninated people are not as fertile as melaninated people. So, they resorted to what they called negative eugenics, where they would create an environment in which they would convince African people to dramatically reduce the number of children they were going to have, and as a result commit race suicide.

    “It is the stupidity of man to think that he can do evil, even some monstrous evil, and it won’t have any backlash on himself. But, it seldom works that way, and the moment he figures that out he starts looking for a way to avoid the repercussions of what he’s done. This is what happened to slavery.” (1) As the end of slavery began to look more plausible the primary concern of the white elite was the financial impact, while some others were more concerned about retribution and rebellion. For the wealthy elite, slaves were only assets as long as we remained slaves but, as free persons we became liabilities. They were concerned that “releasing” four million uneducated and unemployable people would make taxes sky rocket and bankrupt the American economy. They were also equally worried about interracial marriages of blacks and whites, which would compromise their racial purity. At around the same time The American Colonization Society’s attempt to send slaves back to Africa failed, the new philosophy of eugenics was emerging and seemed like the answer to what had become “the negro dilemma”.

    American eugenicist Harry Laughlin was an official with the American Eugenics Society and the American Birth Control League (founded by Margaret Sanger). In 1928, the Birth Control Review, launched by Margaret Sanger, published his plan to use forced sterilization to eliminate people that might produce what he called “degenerate offspring”. The Birth Control Review also published German psychiatrists Ernst Rudins’ call for racial purity in 1933. Now, eugenicists knew that their plans would not be successful under the name of eugenics and terms like population control because it was associated with Hitler, wealthy white elite, and other forms of white supremacy. With public knowledge of the relationship between Nazi’s and the American Birth Control League increasing, their research showed the need to move away from terms such as ‘control’ and replace them with safe words like ‘planning’. Consequently, in 1942 the organization changed its’ name to Planned Parenthood.

    Although Margaret Sanger was not an official eugenicist she promoted and supported their movement. She did attempt to give the appearance that she separated from the American Birth Control League, founding the National Committee for Federal Legislation on Birth Control but the two were later merged to form the Birth Control Federation of America, changing in 1942 to Planned Parenthood Federation of America. Sanger states, “The eugenic and civilization value of birth control is becoming apparent to the enlightened and the intelligent … the campaign for birth control is not merely of eugenic value, but is practically identical in ideal with the final aim of eugenics.” (2)
This article is simply about the facts. With the propaganda of now “free” birth control I just felt that I would put the facts out there and try to help people make more informed decision, regardless of the actual decision. Planned Parenthood not only concentrated placing their facilities in Black and low income neighborhoods but also sterilized thousands of our black women after delivering their baby by threatening to terminate their government assistance if they did not sign papers to allow the procedure. They deemed girls as young as 8 years old “unfit” and “feebleminded” which by law allowed them to be considered for sterilization. It is in these situations I find it quite clear that white supremacy is about the Caucasian race being terrified of the extinction of their kind. The insecurities of being much less accomplished than our African ancestors is prominently displayed in their relentless need to be greater, better, and larger in numbers. Only an insecure person or group feels the need constantly impose their “greatness” upon others.

      In Conclusion, I really wish American Black people would relinquish the control the media has over the things we do and see as “good”. Our loyalty to the media, especially the news stations, is always being used against us, including putting harmful chemicals in our bodies. Any synthetic chemical we digest is going to have an unnatural effect AND most “designer” drugs are specifically designed to have negative effects when it combines with our melanin. So, please stay informed and let’s begin to think more critically about the information we receive from sources that do not have our best interest at heart.

A few people who donate millions and/or billions of dollars to the Planned Parenthood Agenda are:

Bill Gates – Founder of Microsoft, Co-Founder of the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation (the largest transparently operated private foundation in the world)

Warren Buffet – CEO and primary shareholder of Berkshire Hathaway Inc. which has subsidiaries such as Geico Insurance Company, Dairy Queen, Fruit of the Loom, and has minority holdings in companies such as American Express, The Coca-Cola Company, and Proctor and Gamble just to name a few.

Ted Turner – The American media mogul is known as founder of the cable news network CNN , also owns TNT (Turner Network Television) and Cartoon Network, owned World Championship Wrestling (WCW) until 2001 when he sold it to World Wrestling Federation (WWF).
