Some black people are waking up.

Ever wonder why Jamaica’s civilization is on the decline? Well this may be the answer. Jamaica actually has a government agency to carry out eugenics on their citizens.  An obvious byproduct of birth control is the destruction of morals and the family unit. The National Family Planning Board was created in 1970 to carry out eugenics in the country. Since the Catholic Church has a very little presence in Jamaica there is no resistance to the eugenicists in this country. They have had moderate success in lower the birth rate but they have had dramatic success in destroying all sense of moral decency in that country.  They even want to promote a China like one child policy but they will allow their citizens to have 2 children. How nice.

Planned Parenthood knew blacks would be suspicious if a bunch of white people who never had much to do with blacks, all of sudden, took a keen interest in blacks and went around telling them, “Stop having so many children. Use birth control. Get sterilized. Have abortions. It is for your own good.” No, that wouldn’t work. They needed black front men. A front man or organization looks to the public like it is serving one purpose but it in actuality serves a hidden ulterior purpose. The most commonly known fronts are front companies used by organized crime to launder money. Planned Parenthood recruited among black America’s opinion molders (intellectuals, ministers, and politicians) to find front men.

They had their first great successes in getting front men from black America’s intelligentsia. It is not surprising that intellectuals would find the elitist message of eugenics appealing. Remember, eugenicists do not discriminate by race, but by genetics. Because of their focus on genetics rather than on race, they have been called scientific racists. Just as it was possible for Margaret Sanger to despise most whites and want to see them exterminated, it is just as possible for a black person to despise most of his fellow blacks and want them eliminated. So it is not hard to understand how members of the black elite, particularly intellectuals who are naturally are aware of their intellectual superiority to the general population, could believe in eugenics. With black intellectuals Sanger was more honest and confided in them with her eugenic vision. They were told that were part of the genetically superior race of human beings and that majority of blacks as well as whites were “human waste” that needed to be eliminated. Black intellectuals were just as attracted to the ideas of eugenics as whites and became some of its most ardent supporters.

Planned Parenthood hit pay dirt in June 1932 when they were able to lure some of black America’s leading intellectuals to their side. George S. Schuyler, a columnist and author; Charles S. Johnson, president of Fisk University; Elmer A. Carter, editor of the Urban League’s journal Opportunity; and W. E. B. Du Bois, the first black man to get a Harvard PHD, all agreed to lend their names to Planned Parenthood’s Negro Project. They all wrote pro-birth control articles in Planned Parenthood’s flagship publication, at that time, the Birth Control Review. W. E. B. Du Bois was the prize catch, because as editor of the NAACP’s flagship publication the Crisis, he was arguably black America’s most famous and public figure at the time. Today, many schools are named after him and Harvard University founded the W. E. B. Du Bois Institute in his honor.

The Birth Control Review is an academic publication that would not be read by the masses or the working classes. It is clear from the articles that their goal is to convince the black intellectual classes that birth control should be promoted to the black underclass. The hope is that the intellectuals would write articles and give lectures on the usefulness and necessity of birth control. The idea would spread down from the intellectual class to the middle class to the lower class. This is one technique to change a target group’s opinions and attitudes.

With articles entitled “Quantity or Quality” or “Eugenics for the Negro” these men did not hide their elitist attitudes and disdain for the majority of blacks in the pieces they wrote. By reading their words, one can gain insight into the mind of a black scientific racist and understand why blacks would help a movement that appears to be contrary to their community’s and their own self-interest. George Schuyler says that a woman is nothing but “a child factory, as a cow is a milk factory and a hen an egg factory.” He also states that there are “certain ingredients” that are necessary to produce a healthy child and that if these are missing then the “child will usually be an inferior product.”[1] Human beings are nothing but products! It is unbelievable the callous disregard these people have for human life. W. E. B. Du Bois wanted blacks to “learn that among human races and groups, as among vegetables, quality and not mere quantity counts.”[2] Elmer A. Carter was worried that the wrong blacks are having too many children, “Therein lies the danger, for Negroes who by virtue of their education and capacity are best able to rear children shrink from that responsibility and the Negro who, in addition to the handicaps of race and color, is shackled by mental and social incompetence serenely goes on his way bringing into the world children.”[3] Du Bois also shared the sentiment the wrong kind of blacks were having children, “the mass of ignorant Negroes still breed carelessly and disastrously, so that the increase among Negroes, even more than among whites, is from that part of the population least intelligent and fit.”[4] What you have read is how the black elites, who ally themselves with white eugenicist organizations, truly think of the black masses.

They also paint an extremely grim and pessimistic picture of life that doesn’t seem to fit the reality. Only seventy years ago blacks lived as slaves; in 1932 they lived as freemen and were on the verge on gaining more of their constitutional rights. I think most people would see this as a hopeful situation. Of course, Du Bois and his friends are not concerned with painting an accurate picture of life or providing blacks with encouragement and hope. Their goal is to convince the blacks that are “shackled by mental and social incompetence,” so it is better not to have any children. Schuyler seems to think that only morticians and prison wardens benefit from more black children, because that is where they are bound to end up. He wonders, “Why should the Negroes . . .  continue to enrich the morticians and choke the jails with unwanted children?”[5] He also implores women to reject their innate maternal instincts and not have children, because “every child takes a great deal of vitality from even those mothers who are in the best of health”[6]

On March 29, 1947, the Pittsburgh Courier, one of the nation’s leading black newspapers, printed a Planned Parenthood press release as if it was an article written by a Courier journalist. The article ominously asked the reader, “Did you know that Negro mothers die at twice the rate of white mothers? Did you know that Negro babies die one and half times faster than white babies? Did you know that before their first birthday some 22,000 Negro babies are dead?” The article then boldly declares in all capitals that, “PPFA HAS THE ANSWERS.” PPFA stands for the Planned Parenthood Federation of America.

A local Pittsburgh priest with a black congregation read this article and sent a fiery letter to the editor wondering, “Why the colored press should advocate a practice that will decimate the colored race is beyond me.” The priest asked the obvious question: If it is true that black babies die at twice the rate of white babies, then shouldn’t efforts be made to improve the conditions for black people instead of trying to decrease the amount of black babies born. Of course Planned Parenthood isn’t interesting improving the conditions of blacks. Its only interest is in the total decimation of the black population.
