A group of Black pastors has sent a letter to the Smithsonian asking that they remove the bust of controversial racist Margaret Sanger.

Margaret Sanger Bust National Portrait GalleryMargaret Sanger Bust

Ministers Taking a Stand addressed their concerns to Ms. Kim Sajet, Director The National Portrait Gallery at the Smithsonian Institution.

Writing:

    We are writing to ask that Margaret Sanger’s likeness be removed from all National Portrait Gallery exhibits. Her bust should not be part of the Gallery’s “Struggle for Justice” exhibit, which honors “great achievements…striking down long-standing segregationist practices and discrimination in American society.”

    Ms. Sanger may have been a lot of things, but a “champion of justice” she definitely was not.

    Perhaps the Gallery is unaware that Ms. Sanger supported black eugenics, a racist attitude toward black and other minority babies; an elitist attitude toward those she regarded as “the feeble minded;” speaking at rallies of Ku Klux Klan women; and communications with Hitler sympathizers.

    Also, the notorious “Negro Project” which sought to limit, if not eliminate, black births, was her brainchild.

The letter also mentions the recent baby parts videos exposing Planned Parenthood’s gruesome organ harvesting operation.

    “Until now the national spotlight has not fallen on Sanger’s background. However, the recent revelations about aborted babies’ organs and body parts being sold, have not only brought Planned Parenthood under intense scrutiny, but also raised questions about its founder, Margaret Sanger. If the revelations were not consistent with her character and ideas, one might argue that Planned Parenthood has ‘gone rogue’ and abandoned Sanger. The fact is that the behavior of these abortionists, their callous and cavalier attitude toward these babies, is completely in keeping with Sanger’s perverse vision for America.”

Margaret Sanger from her autobiography

The Smithsonian’s National Portrait Gallery catalogs more than 100,000 portrait records from the Catalog of American Portraits (CAP), a survey of American portraits in public and private collections across the United States and abroad.

The CAP encompasses portraits of American subjects or by American artists, generally limited to one-of-a-kind likenesses such as paintings, sculpture, drawings, miniatures, silhouettes, and daguerreotypes.

The Margaret Sanger Bust was made in 1964 a few years before the Planned Parenthood founder died.

The bronze sculpture was created by artist Joy Buba in 1972 and cast after a 1964 original and owned by the National Portrait Gallery, Smithsonian Institution.

2009 audio of NPG director Martin Sullivan who explained the portrait to a group visiting the museum said the Bust is located in the “Search for Justice” room which includes César Chávez and heroes of the Mexican revolution among others.

Sanger KKK

Sanger, who praised by the Klan, was also admired by 2016 presidential candidate, Hillary Clinton.

The Black group said this letter is the first among many efforts to expose the racist Planned Parenthood founder.

Ironically, Sanger’s bust is featured in the NPG’s “Struggle for Justice” exhibit, alongside two of America’s most celebrated and authentic champions of equal rights. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., and Rosa Parks. If Sanger had her way, MLK and Rosa Parks would not have been born ,” the pastors write.

Black Pastors oppose Margaret Sanger Bust Smithsonian

How can a person like Sanger, who found common cause with the racial agenda of the Ku Klux Klan (“KKK”), be ranked among true champions of “justice?” She was a purveyor of grave injustice against the most vulnerable,” they continued.

The Smithsonian has refused to remove the Bust.

Bishop EW Jackson has suggested ( to Fox) that the Margaret Sanger Bust be placed in exhibits of the Klan or in a “hall of shame.”

It is equivalent to a Black genocide and she should not be honored at the Smithsonian Gallery,” he said.

A documentary I did the research for that was produced in 2009, called Maafa21, details the racist views of Sanger and is worth viewing.

“Planned Parenthood they set up their facilities and organization, they are funded by tax payer money. They set up all around America in minority neighborhoods, black neighborhoods. They target Blacks, Latinos…it is wrong…and America we must turn away from this, we must Defund Planned Parenthood. It is evil….we’re taking a stand, just like Rosa Parks TOOK A STAND, just like Dr. King TOOK A STAND, we’re taking a stand for righteousness, this is wrong. How can America continue to be blessed by God if we’re going to slaughter babies at the alter of Baal?”

Alveda King and Charmaine Yoest: Pressing on for ‘life

YOEST & KING: Rights for the unborn
Pressing on for ‘life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness’

By Charmaine Yoest and Alveda King

The Washington Times
Friday, August 6, 2010

President Obama’s selection of Elena Kagan, the most demonstrably pro-abortion Supreme Court nominee in recent memory, presented a daunting challenge to pro-life leaders, as her 63 Senate votes during Thursday’s confirmation attest.

Not unreasonably, observers have asked: Why then, do we bother?

The question resonates for this particular political confrontation but applies equally to the larger issue as a whole as we near four decades of abortion on demand in America post Roe v. Wade.

We bother because, in the end, we will win.

Think of “Rocky” and “Rudy.” In a universally favorite movie plot, the unsung and discounted hero defies great odds, ignores the naysayers, perseveres in the face of overwhelming obstacles and emerges triumphant just when it looks impossible.

Tenacious persistence has been part of the American fiber since the beginning.

After all, our nation’s founding was the impossible dream of the 18th century. America’s founders had the audacity to believe that the people could govern themselves, and they agreed to take on the world’s greatest military power to earn the right to try.

But in our modern, 24/7 drive-thru microwave Twitter culture, we often forget that great victories for the betterment of humankind don’t happen instantly. Real, substantive change doesn’t take place in the course of one election, one year or as the result of one political battle. It is achieved through a long march that can span many lifetimes.

Martin Luther King Jr.’s “I Have a Dream” speech was not the launching point in the struggle for civil rights and equality. Rather, Dr. King’s genius was his dedication to carrying a well-weathered baton that was handed to him by a long list of committed visionaries. The struggle to make all Americans truly equal regardless of race, which predates our republic, took more than a century and a half.

In 1773, Benjamin Franklin wrote “a disposition to abolish slavery prevails in North America” while Thomas Jefferson, in another letter, castigated King George for his “cruel war against human nature itself” because the king opposed efforts to prohibit the slave trade in the American Colonies.

President John Quincy Adams – the “hellhound” of abolition – was a strong opponent of slavery in America’s early years and had hoped to see its end. Realizing near the end of his life that victory would not be achieved on his watch, he noted that in spite of this, “my conscience presses me on.”

But Adams, in his later years, befriended a one-term congressman from Illinois. Young Abraham Lincoln, who went on to become the 16th president of the United States, later based his Emancipation Proclamation on Adams’ anti-slavery arguments.

As decade stretched into decade, Americans from Harriet Tubman to Rosa Parks pressed on in the defining human rights struggle of their time. And, after fighting a bloody war, staging protests at lunch counters or walking into a hostile school escorted by armed paratroopers, hundreds of thousands of people eventually moved the nation to do the right thing.

Finally, on July 2, 1964, President Lyndon B. Johnson – with King present – signed the Civil Rights Act, a law that put into practice the 14th Amendment guarantee of equal protection for all Americans.

Today, in poll after poll, Americans are trending more and more pro-life. They want to see abortion restricted, support parental involvement laws and want an end to taxpayer-funded abortion. On the issue of judges, Americans are also very clear. In a recent poll, 87 percent said they support judges who “interpret the law as it is written” and 70 percent said they think elected officials should make policy and not the courts.

In spite of this opposition to an agenda-driven judiciary, Washington elites continue to defy the people. Elena Kagan’s nomination is a prime exemplar of this vast contradiction.

After months of dedicated opposition to her nomination, Ms. Kagan’s confirmation is a difficult setback in our long march to ultimate victory.

Justice Kagan’s agenda-driven philosophy, her advocacy of abortion without any restrictions, and her record as a White House aide who manipulated medical evidence to achieve political ends has caused a stir among the electorate.

In 1857, when the Supreme Court ruled in Dred Scott v. Sanford that black Americans essentially had no protection under the Constitution and therefore virtually no rights, abolitionists may have felt that their cause had been dealt a serious blow – yet they continued to press ahead.

They pressed ahead, as we do now, not because victory was immediate but because they were compelled by duty to do what is right. And in America, land of the second chance, we know there will be another opportunity.

When opportunity comes, we will take on the challenge to the best of our ability. We take that challenge knowing that maybe on our watch, or maybe on our children’s watch, 1964 will come again. We are, after all, one human race on an unending quest to secure life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness for all.
Remembering this, may our consciences press us onward.
