Black is beautiful just turned ugly. A California organization has been accused of racism because it ran pro-life outdoor boards in black neighborhoods.
Of course it sounds insane. But Representative Barbara Lee is involved in the story, so it’s insane by definition.
CNB has the story of the aborted ad campaign:
…The Issues4Life Foundation and The Radiance Foundation have launched a pro-life billboard campaign with the goal of saving the lives of hundreds of thousands of black babies aborted in America each year.
“The impact of abortion in the black community is the Darfur of America,” Walter B. Hoye II, president of the Issues4Life Foundation, told Life Site News.
The signs in question contain the message “Black & Beautiful” and are going up in largely black communities in Oakland, Calif.
Statistics show that black women are three times more likely to have abortions as the general population. So it would seem to be a good idea to run the ads in black neighborhoods. But, no, attempting to save the lives of black babies is – you guessed it – racist.
… Planned Parenthood and California pro-choice groups are calling the ads racist. They say the “black & beautiful” slogan is too close to the “black is beautiful” cultural-pride campaign made popular in the 1960s.
Rep. Barbara Lee, D-Calif., has also spoken out against the billboards.
“I am deeply offended by the race-based billboards that are being displayed in my congressional district by the Radiance Foundation and Issues4life,” she said in a statement.
“These billboards stigmatize women of color and perpetuate myths about parenting skills and the types of women who seek and use abortion services,” Lee added.
You know the race mongers have truly jumped the shark when attempting to save the lives of black babies is called racism.
And in the case of Barbara Lee, it’s just too bad that retroactive abortion isn’t legal.
