Celebrity host of America’s Got Talent Nick Cannon doubled down on his attacks on Planned Parenthood, saying that the organization is engaged in “modern day eugenics” and “population control” against African-Americans.
He said this on video to SplashNews at the Los Angeles International Airport after landing. They had asked him about his recent comments on the radio show “The Breakfast Club” in which he said Planned Parenthood was committing “real genocide” against the African-American community via abortion.
“Think of all the stuff they did with Planned Parenthood,” Cannon said of Hillary Clinton and her supporters. He was responding to one of the radio show hosts who brought up concerns that Donald Trump may appoint Supreme Court justice who will try to reverse Roe v. Wade. “That type of stuff is to take our community – forget gentrification – it’s real genocide, and it’s been like that for years. This system is not built for us.”
Even though African Americans only make up about 12% of the U.S. population, they have 28% of the abortions. Studies have shown that Planned Parenthood clinics tend to be located near minority neighborhoods.
