But heard virtually nothing about the pro-life membership of that
organization who called on them to advance awareness of black genocide.

William McGurn covered it in the WSJ.

This was a protest by African-American pro-lifers – many
NAACP members – who can’t understand why America’s most venerated civil
rights organization turns a blind eye to what they say is the abortion
industry’s practice of targeting poor minority neighborhoods.

These folks include the Rev. Clenard Childress, a New Jersey pastor
who runs a Web site called blackgenocide.org – the same language the
Rev. Jesse Jackson used before he threw in his lot with the Democratic
Party. These folks include Day Gardner of the National Black Pro-Life
Union, and Levon Yuille of the National Black Pro-Life Caucus. And
these folks include Dr. Alveda King, a niece of the Rev. Martin Luther
King who says she knows what abortion does to a woman – because she had
two of them before her change of heart.

“I remember when I was pregnant and considering a third abortion,”
she says. “I went to Daddy King [her grandfather and Martin Luther
King’s father]. He told me, ‘that’s a baby, not a blob of tissue.’
Unfortunately, 14 million African-Americans are not here today because
of legalized abortion. It’s as if a plague swept through America’s
cities and towns and took one of every four of us.”

The Centers for Disease Control sees it like this:

While about one out of every five white pregnancies ends in abortion, it’s nearly one out of every two for African-Americans.

We’re hearing a lot about racial problems in America. Why the silence over this?

We have the first black candidate for president, he supports
abortion, and he’s endorsed by abortion activists. That’s both an
answer to the above question…..and added gravity to continue asking it.
