Actress Stacey Dash sparked outrage when she tweeted her endorsement for GOP presidential candidate Mitt Romney. The former “Single Ladies” star tweeted: “Vote for Romney. The only choice for your future.” She also retweeted a message from Romney’s official Twitter page that read: “Women have had enough of @BarackObama’s disappointment. We need new leadership to get our economy growing again.”
Stacey’s twitter followers immediately reacted with controlled rage and indignation. One confused follower wrote “Wait stacey dash is voting for romney? you get a lil money and you forget that you’re black and a woman. two things romney hates.”
And a staff writer for the blog Hello Beautiful wrote: “If Stacey Dash only knew (which she probably doesn’t), Mitt Romney doesn’t exactly support women’s rights. He plans to “get rid” of Planned Parenthood; an organization that funds health services and counseling for women.”
The blogger conveniently left out the fact that Planned Parenthood is a racist organization that has played a major role in the mass sterilization of black women.
In fact, Magaret Stanger, Planned Parenthood’s founder, once wrote in 1939: “”We do not want word to go out that we want to exterminate the Negro population…”
“There is a great danger that we will fail because the Negroes think it a plan for extermination. Hence lets appear to let the colored run it as we appear to let [the] south do the conference in Atlanta.” Under this policy, Planned Parenthood of America hired a full-time “Negro Consultant” in 1944.
In a 1926 speech at Vassar, Sanger said the nation needed to follow the “drastic immigration laws” of 1924 with methods “to cut down on the rapid multiplication of the unfit and undesirable at home.”
And, more recently, Planned Parenthood again targeted inner-city minority neighborhoods. A study found that one hundred school-based clinics nationwide have been at “Black, minority, or ethnic schools,” and no clinics were located at middle class or suburban schools.
Maybe the Hello beautiful staff writer should check her facts and not allow her judgment to be clouded by skin color.
