This young man gets it. There is no way I could do it justice to say anything more as eloquently as he does.

I really don't yet know what to make of this documentary, Maafa 21 The History of Eugenics in America. I've watched it several times now and it's so intriguing and I'm surprised it hasn't become viral like so many silly little videos. Perhaps because it addresses such a serious subject at such length that many people find distasteful or downright disgusting. Embedded is part 1 of the 13 part series, but I recommend you go directly to the link above and watch them all:
I haven't and probably won't be able to check all the 'facts' in the video. Of course it has tremendous propaganda value and there may be some misinterpretation of the types of information they present as proof. One article by Michelle Goldberg in Religion Dispatches, Anti-Choice Doc Aims to Link Reproductive Rights to 'Black Genocide', contends that the documentary is largely propoganda though not all in it is untrue. Specifically, Goldberg writes that it distorts some claims such as Margeret Sanger being a racist and it perpetrates an outright deception and outrageous distortion about the work of Alva Myrdal, but I'm not sure all of her facts about the rest are entirely accurate either.
