Hail Trump? Racism Is Horribly Ugly.

Racism, real racism, is horribly ugly.

We should hire three or four [African-American] ministers, preferably with social-service backgrounds, and with engaging personalities. The most successful educational approach to the [African-American] is through a religious appeal. We don’t want the word to go out that we want to exterminate the [African-American] population. And the minister is the man who can straighten out that idea if it ever occurs to any of their more rebellious members.


Instead of decreasing and aiming to eliminate the stocks that are most detrimental to the future of the race and the world, it tends to render them to a menacing degree dominant … We are paying for, and even submitting to, the dictates of an ever-increasing, unceasingly spawning class of human beings who never should have been born at all.

But before you think those quotes came from a prominent, right-wing Trump supporter: those are from Margaret Sanger. The founder of Planned Parenthood. A woman that Hillary Clinton admired:

I admire Margaret Sanger enormously, her courage, her tenacity, her vision. I am really in awe of her, there are a lot of lessons we can learn from her life.

See, racism, no matter which side it comes from is evil. No matter if it is businesses offering bonuses to not hire white men or a woman starting a business with the intent to eliminate the stocks (of blacks) or 200 white supremacists meeting in Washington. We need to remember to judge a man by the content of their character, not the color of their skin.
