We’re Letting our Children and Our Future Die

Day Gardner is founder and president of the National Black Pro-Life Union headquartered in Washington, DC. She made history when, as Miss Delaware, she became the first black woman to be named a semifinalist in the renowned Miss America Pageant, breaking through numerous racial and stereotypical roadblocks.
For decades, our culture of abortion on demand, at any stage of pregnancy and for any reason, has adversely affected black women and their families more than any other group in our society. The numbers are incredibly disproportionate and it is saddening to think of tiny little lives being snuffed out because of race.
The most recent statistics show that the abortion rate among blacks is rising, proving the black race is on the path to extermination. For example, in New York City, according to a recent report by the New York City Department of Health and Mental Hygiene in 2013, more black babies were killed by abortion than were born.
How can a population thrive and sustain itself when it is killing off more of its kind than let live?

The Center for Disease Control’s latest Abortion Surveillance report found that between 2007 and 2010, 36 percent of all abortions in the U.S. were performed on black children, even though blacks make up only 12.8 percent of the population.
In the state of Mississippi where whites outnumber blacks two-to-one, 72 percent of the babies aborted were black. In Washington, D.C. and the city of Philadelphia, more than 50 percent of all abortions are performed on black women. In Michigan, even though the black population is only 14 percent, 43 percent of the abortions performed were performed on black women.
What is truly alarming about these statistics is not only the staggering number of African American deaths that are legally sanctioned, but also the fact that the slaughter of these children is actively supported and even promoted by most black politicians.
DAY GARDNER SLAMS MSNBC’S MARTIN BASHIR
FOR DISGUSTING SARAH PALIN COMMENTS
MSNBC’s Martin Bashir lashed out at Sarah Palin when she used slavery as an analogy in talking about the implications of
American debt. He spewed disgusting filth and hate in an effort to degrade Sarah Palin only because her politics differ from his.
What I found interesting was that Mr. Bashir seemed to think that he had more right to use slavery as an analogy than did Palin. He actually said, “It’s hardly surprising that she (Palin) should choose to mention slavery in a way that is abominable to anyone who knows anything about its barbaric history.” Bashir then goes on to act as if he alone is the utmost authority on anyone and everyone who has ever been enslaved. He spewed out two separate accounts of discipline inflicted on slaves in the 1700s by Jamaica slave owner Thomas Thistlewood.
He begins telling of how a slave named Darby was caught ‘eating kanes’. He was flogged and pickled before Thistlewood forced another slave to defecate in Darby’s mouth. The punishment became known as “Darby’s Dose,” the MSNBC host explained.
Bashir then went on to mention another similar act of sheer cruelty and brutality. This time in relation to a man named Punch who was flogged and had salt pickle, lime juice and bird pepper rubbed into his wounds, before slave owner Thistlewood forced another slave to urinate in the Punch’s eyes and mouth.
Bashir finally got to his underlying message — that if anyone is qualified for such treatment, it’s Sarah Palin. He stated: “When Mrs. Palin invokes slavery, she doesn’t just prove her rank ignorance. She confirms if anyone truly qualified for a “dose” of discipline from Thomas Thistlewood, she would be the outstanding candidate.”
I am a black woman. To say that I take exception to Mr. Bashir’s appalling remarks is a gross understatement. My ancestors suffered the extreme inhumanity of the middle passage and endured the horrors and cruelty of slavery. From the time I was a young girl, I heard terrible stories passed down by family members over the years and I would not wish those atrocious and vile acts on my worst enemy.
Bashir also insisted on flinging the word unintelligent with regard to Palin. He dubbed her America’s “resident dunce” and a “world class idiot,” well…let’s look at that.
Since Martin Bashir spewed his filth against Gov. Palin, he has been back-tracking, side-stepping and apologizing all over the place which proves that after all is said and done, maybe he is one “resident dunce” who should have used his vast intelligence to choose words more carefully--or just keep his mouth completely shut to avoid sounding like a “world class idiot.”
I hope MSNBC will see Mr. Bashir's rank ignorance as the dead weight that it is and consider cutting the cord.
