• Why Black Pastors Demand Smithsonian Rip Out Sanger From MLK Exhibit

    Many leaders in the black community support Planned Parenthood, despite the racism of its eugenist founder Margaret Sanger and the organization’s continuing racist activities.

    A group of black pastors are refusing to let Sanger’s racist proclivities be forgotten and have written to the Smithsonian Museum asking that Sanger’s bust be removed from the “Struggle for Justice” exhibit.

    “Perhaps the Gallery is unaware that Ms. Sanger supported black eugenics, a racist attitude toward black and other minority babies, an elitist attitude toward those she regarded as ‘the feeble minded;’ speaking at a rally of Ku Klux Klan women; and communications with Hitler sympathizers,” the letter from Ministers Taking a Stand states.

    “Also the notorious ‘Negro Project,’ which sought to limit, if not eliminate black births, was her brainchild. Despite these well- documented facts of history, her bust sits proudly in your gallery as a hero of justice,” the letter states. “The obvious incongruity is staggering!”

    Sanger wanted to prevent “unfit” population groups, particularly the black community, from breeding. She also targeted the the disabled and the poor.

    Sanger spoke openly of her wish to exterminate the black population in a letter describing her “Negro Project.” She was also a proponent of forced sterilization, believed that large families should kill their infants, and wanted the government to put birth control in the drinking water of urban areas with large minority groups.

    These are only a few examples of the many horrifying things for which she advocated, there’s much more to her eugenicist views.

    Despite the well documented truth that Sanger wanted to prevent the poor, the disabled, and minorities from breeding, she is honored in an exhibit devoted to the struggle for justice, alongside people like Martin Luther King, Jr. and revered as some kind of hero by abortion advocates.
