Black American Perspectives

Examining The Civil War In Black And White

The Impending Crisis of the SouthIn 1857, Hinton Rowan Helper (1829-1909), a rabid racist and the son of a western North Carolina farmer, published one of the most controversial books ever written about slavery. In his book entitled “The Impending Crisis of the South,” Helper argued that slavery was incompatible with economic progress. Using statistics drawn from the 1850 census, Helper maintained that the North was growing far faster than the South and that slavery was the cause of the South’s economic failure. Helper believed slavery doomed the South because it was inefficient, wasteful, degraded labor, inhibited urbanization, thwarted industrialization, and stifled progress. 1

The Impending Crisis of the South

“Slavery lies at the root of all the shame, poverty, ignorance, tyranny, and imbecility of the South.” — Hinton Rowan Helper 2


Not only did slavery choke commerce and malign manufacturing, it also impacted the South’s ability to fight the war. As the slave population increased, so did the demand for the human resources (i.e., fighting men), financial resources (i.e., gold) and natural resources (i.e., land) required to manage the very real threat of an internal rebellion from a very hostile slave population. This is clearly seen in the decennial census tables below. 3

The Certain Victory Of The North

“The fight to be free must include those who are not.” — Walter B. Hoye II, Issues4Life Foundation

As the slave population increased, so increased the reality of the North’s victory. Even when the population numbers (for practical purposes) were equal between the North and the South, it is easy to see the problem of maintaining an increasing slave population was to the South and the advantage to my foreparents fighting for their freedom was to the North. It’s easy to see the inestimable value Frederick Douglass, Harriet Tubman and the United States Colored Troops (USCT) were to the North’s fight for freedom. However, if we examine the 1860 census and leverage our learning with the four (4) million slaves in the South fighting side by side with the nineteen (19) million in the North for their freedom, it’s also easy to see, that the crisis in the South was more than impending …

It was certain.

Black American Perspectives

Examining Pro-Life America In Black And White

The Impending Crisis of the SouthAbortion has a huge hidden economic cost that is literally destroying the future of our country. To date, we’ve had 55 Million abortions since 1967. In other words, since then we’ve killed 55 Million future workers, consumers, taxpayers and parents the nation needs to sustain future economic growth. That’s 30% of the entire generation under 45. Meanwhile, we paid the abortion industry an estimated $25 Billion for those abortions. But the cost in lost GDP to the country is an estimated $45 TRILLION. That’s 1800 times more than the cost of those abortions. That’s three times our national debt. Yet that GDP loss continues climbing every year by another $2.5 Trillion. Abortion is nothing less than national suicide.” — Dennis Howard, Movement for a Better America 4

The Impending Crisis of Abortion in our Nation

“If there ever was a major job killer, it is the baby-killing industry.” — Dennis M. Howard 5


U.S. National Debt and GDPJust as the moral evil of slavery crippled the economy of the South in the 1800’s, the abhorrent depravity of abortion likewise paralyzes our nation today. In 2009, before the “Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act” (i.e., Obamacare) was signed into law by President Barack Hussein Obama on March 23, 2010 6, the Gross Domestic Product (GDP) per capita was about $45,000 a year, and was compounding at a rate of 4% a year7 This is a measure that includes everyone from the womb to the tomb so every baby we abort is one less contributor to our GDP — and not just for today or for any fiscal year, but for a lifetime. If you consider that every child we abort today will cost us about $23 Million 8 in future GDP over a lifetime and the fact that babies don’t compete for jobs for the first 20 years of their lives, it’s easy to see how they create jobs for everybody else — doctors, nurses, teachers, homebuilders, toymakers, retailers ad infinitum. If we compound the numbers, it’s easy to see by 2040 to 2050 9, we’ll be facing cumulative GDP losses of $335 to $500 Trillion dollars 10 just from abortion. If we add another 20% to 35% to that, it’s easy to see, we’re now talking about an amount of money that is forever lost and so large that it’s more than just threatening the financial health of our nation …

It’s already at work destroying the financial health of our nation.

The Impending Crisis of Abortion in Black America

“The most dangerous place for a Black American is in the womb.” — Dr. Clenard Childress, BlackGenocide.Org 11


Dr. Clenard H. ChildressJust as the slave industry targeted Blacks for slave labor, today the abortion industry targets Black Americans for her abortion clinics. As a result Black Americans account for 40% of all abortions in the country and 47% of our pregnancies end in abortion. 12 New York City is a case in point. Of the 208,541 pregnancies in New York City in 2010, 83,750 were terminated by abortion (i.e., 4 in 10 or 40% of all pregnancies ended in abortion). 13 However, among Blacks, there were 38,574 abortions and 26,635 live births, thus for every 1,000 Black American babies born, 1,448 Black American babies were aborted14 If we consider the fact that for every 1,000 Black American babies in New York, born to teenagers, 2,630 Black American babies were aborted, resulting in an overall teenage abortion rate of 63% in a city where 16% of all pregnancies were teen pregnancies, 15 it’s easy to see, we’re killing ourselves at a genocidal pace. If we leverage our learning with the fact that this death march for Blacks in New York City has been true since 2000, 16 it’s easy to see, Black America doesn’t have another forty (40) years to fight abortion and our impending crisis is now a matter of survival.

The Certain Victory Of Pro-Life America

“When Judge Douglas says that whoever or whatever community wants slaves, they have a right to have them, he is perfectly logical if there is nothing wrong in the institution; but if you admit that it is wrong, he cannot logically say that any body has a right to do wrong.” — Abraham Lincoln, Sixth Douglas Debate: Quincy, Illinois, October 1858 17


Lord, When Did We See You In The Womb?It’s easy to see how the North and the slave population fighting together in the American Civil War spelled defeat for the entirely evil practice of slavery in the South, saved her economy and unified our nation. It’s easy to see how Pro-Life America and Black America fighting together today would spell defeat for the abomination of abortion, the resurrection our national economy and the unification of “we the people.” However, it’s also easy to see how in the last forty (40) years, Pro-Life America has not developed strategies or embraced tactics that have the potential to reach Black America nor taken the initiative to learn why Black America rejects her. Likewise, it’s easy to see how Black American leadership, the Black Church, our Black Congressional representatives and our social organizations, such as the NAACP, have been deathly silent on the life issue, ultimately propping up the purveyors of the leading cause of death in Black America so they can continue to perpetrate the genocide of their own people.

United We Stand, Divided We Fall

A house divided against itself cannot stand. I believe this government cannot endure, permanently, half slave and half free. I do not expect the Union to be dissolved — I do not expect the house to fall — but I do expect it will cease to be divided. It will become all one thing or all the other. Either the opponents of slavery will arrest the further spread of it, and place it where the public mind shall rest in the belief that it is in the course of ultimate extinction; or its advocates will push it forward, till it shall become alike lawful in all the States, old as well as new — North as well as South.” — Abraham Lincoln 18


Abraham LincolnLike Lincoln, I expect Pro-Life America and Black America to “cease to be divided.” Like Lincoln, I believe Pro-Life America and Black America will “become all one thing or all the other.” Like Lincoln, I too understand that “either the opponents of [abortion] will arrest the further spread of it, and place it where the public mind shall rest in the belief that it is in the course of ultimate extinction or [the advocates of abortion] will push it forward, till [abortion] shall become alike lawful in all the States.”

However, unlike Lincoln, the states today are not split half for abortion and half against abortion. The America I live in has already legalized abortion, through all nine (9) months of pregnancy 19, in all fifty (50) federated states, in all U.S. territories and works around the clock to legalize abortion around the world. 20,21,22 The America I live in has duly elected the first Black American President who stands firmly in favor of abortion and works faithfully to ensure abortion remains legal and taxpayer funded. 23

Could It Be That I’m Wrong?

“I must work the works of him that sent me, while it is day: the night cometh, when no man can work.” — Jesus Christ 24


Could it be that Pro-Life America and Black America are not as divided over the abortion debate as they appear to be? Could it be that after forty (40) years of legalized abortion in the United States, Pro-Life America and Black America have conceded that the scourge of abortion cannot be abolished? Could it be that Pro-Life America and Black America have run out of time to get their act together? Could it be that Pro-Life America and Black America are too late?

The night is coming …

Brothers, we really need to talk.
