Bet you didn’t know [3]

Editor: “In regard to the colored people, there is always more that is benevolent, I perceive, than just, manifested towards us. What I ask for the Negro is not benevolence, not pity, not sympathy, but simply justice. The American people have always been anxious to know what they shall do with us…I have had but one answer from the beginning. Do nothing with us! Your doing with us has already played the mischief with us. Do nothing with us! If the apples will not remain on the tree of their own strength, if they are worm eaten at the core, if they are early ripe and disposed to fall, let them fall! … And if the Negro cannot stand on his own legs, let him fall also. All I ask is, give him a chance to stand on his own legs! Let him alone! …Your interference is doing him positive injury.” [What the Black Man Wants, Frederick Douglass, Boston, MA, Jan. 26, 1865.]

I begin the third in this series of articles which serves to show the relationship between black folk and the Republican Party from 1858 to present; the excerpt from Frederick Douglass (Republican, Ambassador to Haiti) nailed it. It is clear that one party in the US has always sought justice for the black man – “give him a chance to stand on his own legs” – to do that is evidence, for some, that Republicans hate blacks; the other has always sought through an assortment of sometimes crude, sometimes what appears to be benevolent modes to do “positive injury” to the black race.

Having failed with violence, they have adopted far more insidious applications – benevolence – free abortions in the 1920s and welfare beginning in the 70s. The slave-traders could only succeed with the aid of some willing blacks who cared not about the harm to the race – they were getting something, in the twentieth century the exploiters could rely on blacks with the same “give-me-something” mentality including being elected president. As is the case of harm to the black race in the US with abortion and welfare, Obama’s ringing endorsement of homosexuality will do harm to millions of black youths – it is nothing short of Margaret Sanger’s objective on “planned parenthood”.

  • Margaret Sanger 1919: The undeniably feebleminded should, indeed, not only be discouraged but prevented from propagating their kind. [One reviewer interpreted her objectives as “More children from the fit, less from the unfit.”]
  • In 1920: Hugh Mulzac – born on Union Island, British West Indies (not of SVG) – became a US citizen in 1918, took and passed the U.S. shipmaster exam (more later).
  • In 1920, Margaret Sanger: The most merciful thing that a large family does to one of its infant members is to kill it. [Women and the New Race, Eugenics Pub. Co., 1920.]
  • August 18, 1920: Republican-authored 19th Amendment, giving women the vote, becomes part of Constitution; 26 of the 36 states to ratify had Republican-controlled legislatures.
  • In a 1921, Margaret Sanger: The most urgent problem today is how to limit and discourage the over-fertility of the mentally and physically defective. [Article, Birth Control Review.]
  • In 1922, Margaret Sanger: Our failure to segregate morons who are increasing and multiplying … demonstrates our foolhardy and extravagant sentimentalism…. we prefer the policy of immediate sterilization, of making sure that parenthood is ‘ absolutely prohibited ‘ to the feeble-minded [The Pivot of Civilization.]
  • Adolf Hitler – Fuehrer of Nazi Germany: The demand that defective people be prevented from propagating equally defective offspring . . . represents the most humane act of mankind. Mein Kampf, vol. 1, ch. 10
  • In 1926, Margaret Sanger was the guest speaker at a Ku Klux Klan rally in Silverlake, New Jersey.
  • June 12, 1929: _First Lady Lou Hoover invites wife of U.S. Rep. Oscar De Priest (R-IL), an African-American, to tea at the White House, sparking protests by Democrats across the country.
  • November 21, 1930: Sanger opened her first real “planned parenthood clinic” in Harlem. Her other, in 1916, aimed at Jews in the Brownsville section of Brooklyn, lasted ten days.
  • April, 1932, Margaret Sanger: The main objectives of the Population Congress is to …apply a stern and rigid policy of sterilization and segregation to that people whose progeny is already tainted, or whose inheritance is such that objectionable traits may be transmitted to the offspring. [Senate hearing.]
  • June 1932, W.E.B Dubois: The mass of ignorant Negroes still breed carelessly and disastrously, so that the increase among Negroes, even more than the increase among Whites, is from that part of the population least intelligent and fit, and least able to rear their children properly. [Article, Birth Control Review.]
  • August 17, 1937: – Republicans organize opposition to former Ku Klux Klansman and Democrat U.S. Senator Hugo Black, appointed to U.S. Supreme Court by FDR; his Klan background was hidden until after confirmation.
  • January 1939: Sanger, W.E.B Dubois initiate The Negro Project – dripping with benevolence.
  • Lucky Dube, murdered by South Africans who mistook him for a Nigerian: Little heroes, go down the drain day by day. Future leaders they go down, the drains day by day. They cry so loud yeah but the whole world is not listening. Only you mothers of the world can save the children. There are a lot of things to be legalised yeah but abortion is not an important thing here. How can you have a face of an angel and let the devil inside of you take control? We tired of hearing these little voices crying out from far away saying: Mama, why do you destroy me? Mama, what have I done to you? I deserve to live like anybody else.
  • The Radiance Foundation: Here is the simple truth. The intent of Sanger’s Negro Project is firmly intact. Nearly 40% of all African-American pregnancies end in induced abortion. This is by design. Abortion kills more black people than the seven leading causes of death combined (heart disease, cancer, strokes, accidents, diabetes, homicide, and chronic lower respiratory diseases) according to CDC data. The African-American abortion rate is 3x-5x that of the white population and over 2x that of all other races combined. This is a crisis situation. The media has been mostly silent. Our churches are mostly silent. But the truth screams loud and clear. Under the false liberty of ‘reproductive freedom’ we are killing our very future.
  • November 9, 2012, Blazer Williams: The old conservative position on sex…contraception and abortion are at virtual war with changing values…. [His answer as to the Obama victory.]

What price Democrat “benevolence”?
