Margaret Sanger is the founder of Planned Parenthood. She had a hidden agenda for Planned Parenthood. Great documentary called Maafa 21 about Planned Parenthood.
Margaret Sanger quote
"We should hire three or four colored ministers, preferably with social-service backgrounds, and with engaging personalities. The most successful educational approach to the Negro is through a religious appeal. We don't want the word to go out that we want to exterminate the Negro population. and the minister is the man who can straighten out that idea if it ever occurs to any of their more rebellious members."
Margaret Sanger's December 19, 1939 letter to Dr. Clarence Gamble, 255 Adams Street, Milton, Massachusetts. Original source: Sophia Smith Collection, Smith College, North Hampton, Massachusetts.

I thought it was interesting that she would pick ministers to aid her. What is it with Black folks and religion?
Bahahahahaha @ James. Why ya playin', I had a friend just the other day say. Man, Black folks don't want to be woke up. I am here strugglin' trying to enlighten my people about religion, I'm just gonna become a preacher and get paid. Sad but true.
Hell, I know many preachers that were hustler's, gangsters and/or pimps. I think they just traded in one hustle for another!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
James, your comment made my day LMAO!! And Milt, our dads are in the same boat. I'm torn between wishing my father was "gettin' paid" like TD Jakes and defrauding tens of thousands, or remaining small and actually doing some important work with the homeless and teen mothers, but spending more than he'll ever recover. Religion doesn't change who you are, it only provides the fuel for a person to do the things that they would naturally be inclined to do. So it doesn't matter if you're a hustler or a humanitarian, your true colors will eventually shine through with or without religion.
