ANALYSIS/OPINION:

Jesse Jackson and the Rev. Al Sharpton have appeared in the spotlight following the shooting death in Ferguson, Mo., of unarmed Michael Brown by a police officer. Wouldn’t it be great if these men who fight for black American rights had the same vigor regarding the No. 1 killer of black Americans in this nation?

The leading cause of death of black Americans isn’t cancer, heart disease or diabetes, nor is it shooting deaths. It’s an issue nobody wants to talk about, but one that is destroying the black American race very discreetly. It’s abortion, and it has been given a pleasant name — “choice” — to mask its true evil.

What say black American leaders regarding the practice of Planned Parenthood, the nation’s leading baby-killing business, in locating many of its facilities in areas where minorities are many? When will a black leader step up and call out Planned Parenthood for the thousands and thousands of unborn babies it has killed for money?

The truth is that if Mr. Jackson wants to be taken seriously when speaking out on black American rights, he must first start by supporting the right to life, from the moment of conception, of his own race. Until then, I don’t want to hear from him.

Martin Luther King Jr. would have spoken up, but don’t take it from me; take it from his niece, Alveda King.
