The purpose in promoting birth control was "to create a race of thoroughbreds," - Margret Sanger, Birth Control Review, Nov. 1921 (p. 2)
It's the title of the first article on the second page, after of course their plea for more money...
The mass of ignorant Negroes still breed carelessly and disastrously, so that the increase among Negroes, even more than the increase among whites, is from that portion of the population least intelligent and fit, and least able to rear their children properly. W.E.B. DuBois, Birth Control Review, June 1932. Quoted by Sanger in her proposal for the "Negro Project."
We should hire three or four colored ministers, preferably with social-service backgrounds, and with engaging personalities. The most successful educational approach to the Negro is through a religious appeal. We don’t want the 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."
this racist eugenicist and her work should be burned to the ground and the earth salted... she makes me sick.
