10 disturbing facts African-Americans should know about eugenics

Frances Galton was an Englishman who came from a family that became very wealthy from slave labor. He is the father of “Eugenics” and coined the term in 1883.
In order to promote the idea of Eugenics, a Eugenics society was formed. It galvanized the social movement that began in America with the sole intent of wiping out the Black population through selective breeding and sterilization. In secret, it played a significant role in the culture of the United States prior to its involvement in World War II. Today, it’s more recognizable and institutions like Planned Parenthood are advancing the Eugenics movement against the Black community.

“I do not join in the belief that the African is our equal in brain or in heart; I do not think that the average negro cares for his liberty as much as an Englishman, or as a self-born Russian; and I believe that if we can in any fair way, possess ourselves of his services, we have an equal right to utilize them to our advantages.”
