10 Worrying Facts about Eugenics That African Americans Should Know


1. Frances  Galton

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.” – Frances Galton


2. Planned Parenthood’s Real Purpose

Margaret Sanger founded The American Birth Control League in 1921. It was a facility with the purpose of sterilizing women.  Realizing that they wouldn’t be able to promote their agenda because it would viewed as socially unacceptable and politically incorrect, in 1942, Sanger officially changed the name of the American Birth Control League to Planned Parenthood concealing its agenda of population control.


3. The Birth Control Pill AKA RU-486

In the book, “RU486: Misconception, Myths and Morals,” written by biologist Renate Klein, professor Janice Raymond and researcher Lynette Dumble, they wrote about discovering an unknown agency that was looking for an inexpensive and effective drug to control the population in foreign countries classified as “underdeveloped.” They used the book  to warn people  of the dangers of the abortion pill.

The abortion pill was tested in ” underdeveloped”  countries first and then brought into Black communities in the United States.


4. The Impact of Legal Abortion

Since becoming law in 1973, legal abortions have killed more African Americans than AIDS, cancer, diabetes, heart disease and violent crimes combined. At one point, every week, more Black people died in American abortion clinics than were killed in the entire Vietnam War. The largest chain of abortion clinics in the United States is operated by the Planned Parenthood.


5. America’s Wealthy Elite Involvement In Eugenics

America’s wealthiest elite played a significant role in the advancement of Eugenics. People such as Andrew Carnegie, Henry Ford, J. P. Morgan, John Harvey Kellogg, Warren Buffett, Procter & Gamble and the Rockefellers have all donated millions for Eugenics based research.

By the 1930s, many of the wealthiest people in the world were members of the American Eugenics Society. Today, billionaires have begun focusing their money into large population control projects such as the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation.


6. Bill Gates’ Involvement With Eugenics

Bill Gates’  father, William H. Gates Sr.,  was the head of eugenics group Planned Parenthood. In a 2003 interview with PBS’ Bill Moyers, Gates admitted that his family’s involvement in reproductive issues through the years has been extensive. Through the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, Gates has been conducting tests for the past decade with new vaccines on poor people in African countries and other places.

According to Vactruth.com the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation went in to Chad and vaccinated at least 50 children with a drug developed specifically for Africa called, “MenAfriVac.”  Within 24 hours, it was reported that the children, some of whom were as young as 7, developed hallucinations, convulsions and ultimately paralysis.


7. Indiana’s 1907 Sterilization Laws

In 1907 Indiana became the first of more than 30 states to pass sterilization laws and some of the laws stayed on the books well into the 1970s. The state of Oregon performed its last sterilization in 1981 and did not abolish its Eugenics program till 1983.

Many of these sterilizations happened without the patient’s consent, or knowledge and sometimes against his or her will. In some instances, a family’s welfare check would be withheld if they didn’t bring their children in to be sterilized.

8. Government Involvement In Eugenics

The United States official policy on controlling world population was called the National Security Study Memorandum 200. In cooperation with the National Security Council, The United States Agency for International Development, the US State Department, the Department of Defense and the Central Intelligence Agency, the goal was to establish a strategy to reduce the population of developing countries so that the United States could have increased access to its natural resources.

As a result of careful testing in Black countries,  the conclusion the U.S. government met was that no country has reduced its population growth without resorting to abortion. With that information the government used Planned Parenthood to carry out the global abortion plan in the targeted countries.

If a country rejected the United States’ birth control policies, one tactic that is used would be to withhold food aid  until they submit to the birth control.


9. Adolf Hitler

Since World War II it has been well documented that Adolf Hitler was profoundly influenced by the American eugenics movement. Many of his government’s racial policies were developed from the writings of American eugenicist Madison Grant.  In fact, Hitler referred to Grant’s book, “The Passing of the Great Race or the Racial Basis of European history” as his bible.

In a 1935 incident, Nazis sterilized the children of more than 600 German women because it was reported that those children had been fathered by Black men.


10. Population Control In Haiti

In Haiti 90 percent of women can get access to birth control, but fewer than 20 percent of the people have access to clean drinking water.
