PP must have gotten to him.....sad. His people are being exterminated. He SHOULD be outraged.

Dan Deeny

Excellent posting. Poor Rev. Jackson. Why did he change?

Mulder

Hard to believe he ever said that. Sad.

Margaret Sanger, who founded the "American Birth Control League" (forerunner of Planned Parenthood) in the 1920s, was an integral part of the US eugenics movement. One group the eugenics crowd hoped to 'thin' was the black community, along with other less than perfect groups. A US History book published by Glencoe/McGraw Hill (The American Vision - for high school) gives her a paragraph explaining she simply wanted to help women plan their families. When I teach this, I give the kids "the rest of the story". It's interesting how the texts point out how racist Woodrow Wilson was (which is true), but led Sanger's true intent slide by when they were in full agreement about the issue.
