Most people, I think, equate the term “genocide” with bad stuff that has either happened long ago or something you see crop up from time to time on the Africa continent. What the vast majority of people don’t know is that there is a very real genocide that has been happening right here in America – a kind of genocide you’ll never hear discussed in the mainstream dino-media or the political halls of Congress. Why?

Because the moment you bring up the systematic elimination of what amounts to a virtual generation of African-Americans over the past several decades through abortion on demand you will be marked and tagged as a loon or a racist, for it doesn’t follow the meme put forth by the mainstream dino-media and race-baitors like Jesse Jackson, Al Sharpton, Sheila Jackson Lee and every other member of the Congressional Black Caucus who somehow – like most liberals – simply can’t envision a world beyond that of the great Civil Rights battles of a half-century ago. Perhaps it’s because they’re afraid to see the fruits of their very labor and the truly pathetic state of African-American life and culture in 21st century America.

Former Pennsylvania senator Rick Santorum drew flack earlier this week for comments he made about the hypocrisy of African-Americans like President Barack Obama who would want to deny human rights to the unborn child when doing so has done such destruction to the African-American community:

“When Barack Obama is asked is a child in the womb a human life? [He says,] ‘Oh, well, that’s above my pay grade.’ Just about everything else in the world he’s willing to do, to have the government do, but he can’t answer that basic question, which is not a debatable issue at all. I don’t think you’ll find a biologist in the world who will say that that is not a human life. The question is–and this is what Barack Obama didn’t want to answer–is that human life a person under the Constitution? And Barack Obama says no. Well, if that person, human life, is not a person, then I find it almost remarkable for a black man to say, no, we are going to decide who are people and who are not people.”

Santorum was alluding to a statement Obama had made on Aug. 16, 2008, when he appeared at the Saddleback Civil Forum on the Presidency at the Saddleback Church in Lake Forest, Calif. Pastor Rick Warren asked Obama at that forum: “At what point does a baby get human rights, in your view?”

Obama answered: “Well, you know, I think that whether you’re looking at it from a theological perspective or a scientific perspective, answering that question with specificity, you know, is above my pay grade.”

On March 30, 2001, Obama had been the only member of the Illinois state senate to speak on the state senate floor in opposition to a bill that would have legally defined all born babies, including those who had survived an induced-labor abortion, as a “person.”

Rather than prompting your typical, liberal knee-jerk reaction, Santorum’s comments should have been given at least a little consideration, for he was making a valid point that few – if any – would have the courage to discuss in the hallowed salons and parlors of Washington, D.C. For, as National Review Online’s Kathryn Jean Lopez points out in her column today (my boldings):

None other than the New York Times has reported that “data from the federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention show that black women get almost 40 percent of the country’s abortions, even though blacks make up only 13 percent of the population. Nearly 40 percent of black pregnancies end in induced abortion, a rate far higher than for white or Hispanic women.”

Anyone with a conscience should find this kind of thing disturbing, prompting one to ask what is really going on here. You look at how the well-intentioned programs of Lyndon Johnson’s “Great Society” have devastated the African American community over time, and you can’t help but shake your head in wonder at why the Jacksons / Sharptons / Lees, etc. are such suck-ups to a political party that has, in reality, done very little (if anything) to promote the interests and well-being of African-Americans.

(Of course, if you think that having a significant portion of American society with a grossly-disproportionate number of abortions, out-of-wedlock births, imprisoned male adults, percentage of teen unemployment, and generations upon generations dependent on some form of government assistance is what the so-called “American Dream” is all about, then you’re either heartless, clueless, an unabashed liberal, or not paying attention to what’s going on around you.)

I’ve written on this topic a number of times before, and Lopez’s column is an absolute must-read. Fortunately, there are signs within the African-American community that their support of Democrats and their “plantation agenda” is starting to crumble: just look at the new member of the Congressional Black Caucus, an emerging black middle-class, and the founding of an African-American tea party chapter right in Jackson-Lee’s backyard. The African-American political mindset is beginning to change; it won’t be easy – decades upon decades of generational dependency will be a monumental obstacle to overcome – but it will happen if given the chance.

Lopez again:

Last year, the New York Times appeared beside itself over a Georgia ad campaign talking about abortion in terms of a “black genocide.” Like Santorum’s comments, though, the ad did get people talking. As Michael New, a pro-life researcher and professor at the University of Alabama, told me at the time: “The fact that a disproportionately high percentage of abortions are performed on black women is not well known outside of pro-life circles. Neither is the fact that Planned Parenthood founder Margaret Sanger was a proponent of eugenics. These pieces of information might be of interest to the black community, especially since many surveys show that African-Americans are more likely to describe themselves as ‘pro-life’ than whites.”

Yes, let’s be talking about that.

The time has come when we can and we should. Realistically, you can’t easily transform the lives of those who are already here, but you can certainly start by giving more of those who would be born at least a fighting chance at their own “American Dream”.
