Doctor, Facts, and Huh: "...we want to exterminate the Negro population" -Margaret Sanger americanninjax: cecaeliawitch: krismichelle429: officialclinicescort: thelonelyconservativememe: All of you out there supporting planned parenthood should really remember what the woman who founded them said…. just saying. Do not stand with PP Oh wow, you guys are still trying desperately trying to paint Sanger as a racist huh? Okay, if you’re gonna flat out lie like this you can at least try not to be lazy about it. You’ve given no context to this quote and conveniently left of the first half of it. The sentence in it’s entirety is “ “We do not want word to go out that we want to exterminate the Negro population.” I know you manipulated it that way because you wanted to make Sanger seem as evil as possible, and also because literally the only thing pro lifers know how to do is lie, but admittedly the full sentence by itself looks damning enough. I think you know this, which is why you provided no context. If you had, your entire argument would have fallen apart. Here are Sangers words with context; “It seems to me from my experience where I have been in North Carolina, Georgia, Tennessee and Texas, that while the colored Negroes have great respect for white doctors they can get closer to their own members and more or less lay their cards on the table which means their ignorance, superstitions and doubts. They do not do this with the white people and if we can train the Negro doctor at the Clinic he can go among them with enthusiasm and with knowledge, which, I believe, will have far-reaching results among the colored people. His work in my opinion should be entirely with the Negro profession and the nurses, hospital, social workers, as well as the County’s white doctors. His success will depend upon his personality and his training by us. The minister’s work is also important and also he should be trained, perhaps by the Federation as to our ideals and the goal that we hope to reach. We do not want word to go out that we want to exterminate the Negro population and the minister is the man who can straighten out that idea if it ever occurs to any of their more rebellious members.” The article I linked goes into better detail about Sanger, the so called “Negro project”, and the lies spread about her by the pro life movement. I encourage you to read it the next time you feel like spreading lazy, manipulative propaganda bullshit like this. TL;DR: The full quote states that Planned Parenthood wanted to hire Black doctors in order to make their Black patients feel safer and respected. It also states that Planned Parenthood wanted to work with Black ministers, and encourage the ministers to tell others that Planned Parenthood was a safe clinic for Black patients. In other words, she didn’t want this exact lie to start circulating Reblogging not just to spread this out there but so that I have it on hand the next time someone tries to feed me this crap, I can provide them the facts.

Period.</p> </blockquote> <p><strong>&ldquo;Including and especially the Republican party&quot; </strong></p> <p><strong><br/></strong>No. Not especially. Not at all. Were their racists in all the parties? Sure. But it was NOT &quot;especially&rdquo; the Republicans  The vast majority of people who fought against slavery were Democrats. That is a FACT. Even most Liberals will concede that before they claim the parties switched. </p> <p>I&rsquo;d like to see a source for that stat. And people committed suicides before guns existed. You can&rsquo;t tell me that not owning a gun will magically get rid of suicidal tendencies. That&rsquo;s insane. </p> <p>I&rsquo;ve talked about the whole &ldquo;white Privilege&rdquo; stuff before.

The Civil Rights Act of 1964 was introduced and approved by a staggering majority of Republicans in the Senate. The Act was opposed by most southern Democrat senators, several of whom were proud segregationists—one of them being Al Gore Sr. Democrat President Lyndon B.
