    What post numbers in this thread were you referring to?

    Why was The Negro Project distinguished and segregated from the main work of the Birth Control League? Why not just call it part of the Birth Control League?



    That's just your opinion. You don't know for sure. Perhaps it The Negro Project was simply named that in order to prevent the Birth Control League from being tainted in the racist opinion of Margaret Sanger.

    Margaret Sanger was a militant feminist who devoted her life to legalizing birth control and making it universally available for women. Women in the 1930s had no right to abortion and she was determined to change that. But at the same time, her Negro Project was designed to control the black population for the sake of “race improvement”, which may make her a racist, and she was associated with the Klan as well.

    none, but I am certainly not going to repeat myself in EVERY thread you ask the same things over and over again.

    It wasn't it was one of the many project instigated and run by the Birth Control League.

    correct and neither do you.

    apart from the fact that Sanger was not racist and despite your repeating it you still haven't managed to provide anything to support that assertion apart from misrepresentation, out of context quotations, cherry picking, guilt by association, assuming the premise and confirmation bias.

    Rubbish .. there is nothing in anything Sanger did or said that even suggest a racist motive.

    Her "association" with the KKK was purely as a speaker talking about birth control.

    This is just a right wing lie to clear Sanger's filthy name.

    if anything she was trying to get KKK members to kill their children.

    I suggest you study some history concerning Sanger, if you did you would discover that she had nothing to do with the Negro project after the initial ideas and helping raise funds.

    so contraception "kills children" now does it :roflol:
