Atlanta, GA – Dr. Alveda King, Director of African American outreach for Priests for Life and niece of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., responded today to the NAACP’s charge that the Tea Party movement tolerates racism.
“We all need to examine and repent of our own tolerance for discrimination,” said Dr. King, “but to condemn an entire group because of a few people, yet support Planned Parenthood, an organization marinated in racism, is to strain out gnats and swallow a camel.”
“The most obvious practitioner of racism in the United States today is Planned Parenthood, an organization founded by the eugenicist Margaret Sanger and recently documented as ready to accept money to eliminate black babies,” added Dr. King. “The most positive step we can take to fight racism is to end the hundreds of millions of dollars in taxpayer subsidies given to an organization that fulfills the dreams of the Ku Klux Klan – a group Planned Parenthood’s founder once addressed.”
