Nick Cannon is an American rapper, comedian, record producer, and radio and television personality. He is best known for his role on the wildly popular ‘America’s Got Talent,’ which he has hosted for the past seven seasons. Lately, he’s also become a social commentator who is commanding attention.
In an interview posted to YouTube by DJ Vlad, Cannon criticized Planned Parenthood and its founder, saying the organization was established so that Margaret Sanger could “exterminate the Negro race.”
Cannon clarified that he is not anti-abortion (his mom actually planned to abort him before changing her mind) but has issues with Planned Parenthood’s original intent to boost ethnic cleansing of blacks.
“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.”
This isn’t the first time Cannon has tried his hand at exposing Planned Parenthood. Last month, he was 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 told The Washington Times. “And it’s been like that for years.”
Margaret Sanger was widely known for her belief in birth control to limit the breeding of what she called the “biologically unfit.” Efforts to downplay her controversial statements about population control have been successful over time. Today, Planned Parenthood has massive support and is a hallmark of left-leaning, progressive Americans.
It is hard for many to sanitize Sanger’s positions, however, when she is simply taken at her spoken and written word. She authored a work titled ‘America Needs a Code for Babies’ in 1934 wherein she stated, “The results desired are obviously selective births.”
Following in the footsteps of the birth control movement, eugenics intersected the United States in the 1920s, and Sanger became a vocal advocate. She spoke about birth control’s use to ease “the process of weeding out the unfit and preventing the arrival of defectives.”
Eugenics is a discipline once championed by prominent scientists that is now widely debunked. Its intent is to prevent “lousy” breeding and promote “good” breeding. The notion is that the human race might be improved through motivating people with characteristics like intelligence, a strong work ethic, and cleanliness (thought to be genetic) to reproduce. Eugenics was taken during the Holocaust to its horrifying extreme, through mating experiments and forced sterilizations.
Cannon claims in his video interview that because so many abortion clinics are located in black communities, the “unfit” that Sanger is referring to can be inferred to mean black people.
