WHAT HAS BEEN WORSE THAN SLAVERY
FOR THE AFRICAN AMERICAN POPULATION?
Dr. Patrick Johnston
was excited to see the Sunday article in my local paper The Zanesville
Times Recorder on the disparity between whites and blacks in this
country. She relegated most of the problems in the African American
community to be a long-term side effect of slavery.
problem is worse than the author revealed. According to the Bureau of
Justice statistics, the past three decades, blacks, while only 13% of
the population, committed over 52% of the nation’s homicides and
were 46% of the homicide victims. About 94% of black homicide victims
were killed by a black person. To put it into perspective, a Tuskegee
Institute study found that between the years 1882 and 1968, 3,446 blacks
were lynched at the hands of whites; twice that many blacks are killed
every year by blacks! Young black males have a greater
chance of reaching maturity on the battlefields of Iraq and Afghanistan
than on the streets of our nation’s largest cities. If they survive
the streets of their hometowns, one in three black men can expect to
go to prison in their lifetime (Bureau of Justice statistics).
have a crisis on our hands!
it’s not about race at all. Is there any other factor that can
account for these devastating forces in the African American community?
As a matter of fact, there is.
for socioeconomic status and place of residence, the strongest predictor
of whether a person will end up in prison is being raised by a single
parent. Children raised by a single mother commit 72% of juvenile
murders, 60% of rapes, have 70% of teenaged births, commit 70% of suicides
and comprise 70% of high school dropouts. A 1990 study by the Progressive
Policy Institute showed that after controlling for single motherhood,
the difference in black and white crime disappeared. Did you
catch that? There is no difference between black and white
crime rates if we take single motherhood into account.
problem in the African American communities is moral. It’s a moral
problem with a moral remedy: repentance and faith in God.
government’s remedy, however, has been to prescribe more of the
poison. Our government has legalized, legitimized, and subsidized adultery
and fornication, making it more profitable to be a deadbeat dad than
a committed father and husband. As the stunning movie “Maafa 21:
Black Genocide in 21st Century America” reveals, it was Margaret
Sanger’s racism and fondness for eugenics that motivated her to
set up government-funded Planned Parenthood birth control and abortion
clinics in minority neighborhoods in this country. She considered immigrants
and blacks to be “human weeds, reckless breeders, spawning…
human beings who should never have been born.” Planned Parenthood
got $487.4 million taxpayer dollars to kill 329,445 babies last year.
About 80% of Planned Parenthoods are in minority neighborhoods.

brings us to the most devastating statistic in the African American
community: according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention,
black women account for 13% of the total U.S. female population, but
undergo more than one-third of all abortions. If those black babies
had been allowed to be born, the black population would be 50% larger.
Abortion is the leading cause of death in the African American
out the greatest threat to the African American community is the sin
of African Americans. Even so, God – the Judge of all –
is the greatest threat to the health and freedom of those who commit
child-sacrifice. He will not let us get away with it.
