MAAFA 21 – Eugenics and Genocide in America

“‘Maafa’ is a Swahili word which means ‘a terrible tragedy’, and indeed that is what has been imposed upon millions of eugenical victims across the world, to this very day…. The documentary follows the life and career of Margaret Sanger, a racist, reactionary feudalist, who created the American Birth Control League to promote the sterilization and abortion of ‘unfit’ people, under the abused labels of ‘social work’ and ‘charity.’ The motto was ‘more from the fit, less from the unfit,’ and it was all funded by the habitual Wall Street pack of bankers, lawyers, and foundation executives. In the meanwhile, fascism was rising in Europe, much to the joy of Sanger and her fellow eugenicists, who saw this as a chance to have truly eugenic regimes, and a general ‘cleansing of the race,’ and cheered on as people like Hitler and Mussolini spread their reigns of ethnic cleansing and terror.”

“As an African-American male I grew up in the late 60’s and 70’s in a middle-class family whose parents provided a very comfortable lifestyle, I never truly understood the issue of racism in the United States, mainly because I’ve never fully experienced that racism. After seeing this film, all of those contradictions of racism that have been nagging me over the years have been put into context. Thank you.”
