Last week, during a speech at UNC-Chapel Hill, I asked students to invite Star Parker to their campus in 2009. I specifically asked them to invite her to speak during Black History Month, which was previously known as “February.” I recommended that they ask her to address the issue of racism and abortion.
Not many students know that 512 of every 1000 black pregnancies end in abortion. Nor do many know that 37% of all aborted babies are black. This is despite the fact that blacks comprise only 12% of the population. That’s why I also told UNC-CH students to sponsor a “genocide awareness day” during Women’s History Month, which was previously known as “March.”
The idea behind “genocide awareness day” is to place 51 crosses in front of a university Women’s Resource Center. Beforehand, pro-life students paint 32 of the crosses white and 19 black. This is to illustrate that black babies are aborted disproportionately. When students stop to ask about the black crosses they can be told the truth; namely, that feminists are finally realizing the racist dreams of Margaret Sanger.
Remember that liberals claim the disproportionate incarceration of blacks is “institutional” racism, even if it is not intentional. By the same logic, the disproportionate abortion of blacks is “institutional” racism, regardless of the intentions of pro-choicers.
A recent decision by the University of St. Thomas (UST) to deny a voice to a black pro-life speaker – one unafraid to voice concerns over the black genocide – could also be characterized as institutional racism. It doesn’t matter whether the “Catholic” university intended to suppress speech opposing a practice that is disproportionately killing blacks. If an institution in any way perpetuates a practice that adversely affects any minority then it is racist. University leftists made up the rule, and now they have to play by it.
UST Vice President of Student Affairs Jane Canney (email@example.com) is the one who recently nixed an idea for an April 21st speech by Star Parker. This was done because she was “uncomfortable” with the fact that the speech was sponsored by the Young America’s Foundation (YAF). Note that the “Catholic” university was “comfortable” hosting a speech last year by pro-abortion candidate Al Franken.
The “Catholic” university was also comfortable hosting a speech by Debra Davis, an outspoken transgendered “woman.” I’m not sure how “she” feels about abortion. I don’t know whether Davis is “woman” enough to get pregnant.
