In an interview posted to YouTube with DJ Vlad, rapper Nick Cannon continued his criticism of Planned Parenthood, saying the organization was created so that founder Margaret Sanger could “exterminate the Negro race.”
Cannon says in the interview that he is not anti-abortion — and that his mother had actually gone to abort him before deciding to have him — but that he has problems with the organization’s original desire to promote “ethnic cleansing.”
“I feel like it’s a systemic issue,” Cannon says in the video. “When you look at what Margaret Sanger and all the people who follow eugenics and all that stuff. It was all about cleansing. Margaret Sanger said that she wanted to exterminate the Negro race, and that she was going to use her organization as she founded to do so.”
Cannon has been vocal in the past in his criticism of Planned Parenthood, just last month accusing the organization of “real genocide” against black communities.
“Think about all the stuff they did with Planned Parenthood and all of that type of stuff. That type of stuff is to take our community and — forget gentrification, it’s real genocide,” Cannon said last month, according to the Washington Times. “And it’s been like that for years.”
Sanger is widely known for her belief in birth control to control what she called the “biologically unfit” from breeding. The effort to downplay some of her more controversial statements about population control have been successful over the years. (Click to Article)
