  • Maafa 21 – Black Genocide in 21st Century America

    Maafa 21: Black Genocide in 21st Century America. The title comes from the Swahili term “Maafa,” which means tragedy or disaster and is used to describe the centuries of global oppression of African people during slavery, apartheid and colonial rule, while the number “21” refers to an alleged maafa in the 21st century (though beginning in the 19th), which the film says is the disproportionately high rate of abortion among African Americans. According to the film, Margaret Sanger, Planned Parenthood’s founder, was racist, that she wanted to wipe out, or at least greatly diminish, the black race, and that she set in place a program to make this happen; a program which is being continued in the 21st century by Planned Parenthood. The film implies that African American women were forced by Sanger and the eugenicists to have abortions. The film states that abortion has reduced the black population in the United States by 25 percent. It discusses some of Planned Parenthood’s origins (formerly the American Birth Control League), attributing to it a “150-year-old goal of exterminating the black population.”
