"Maafa 21 is a documentary on the modern eugenics movement, from its roots in 19th century imperialist Europe and in various post-slavery elitist milieus in America, to the Third Reich and its Final Solution for the "Jewish question" -- the film proceeds on to today, where it exposes the incredible proportions of the culling of Black people by abortion, in 21st century America.
"Maafa" is a Swahili word which means "a terrible tragedy", and indeed that is what has been imposed upon millions of eugenical victims across the world, to this very day.
Case in point, the African-American population. After decades of slavery in the neo-feudal South, Black Americans went on to become the prime target for U.S. eugenicists. The main vehicle for this was - and is - abortion.
The documentary follows the life and career of Margaret Sanger, a racist, reactionary feudalist, who created the American Birth Control League to promote the sterilization and abortion of "unfit" people, under the abused labels of "social work" and "charity". The motto was "more from the fit, less from the unfit", and it was all funded by the habitual Wall Street pack of bankers, lawyers, and foundation executives.
In the meanwhile, fascism was rising in Europe, much to the joy of Sanger and her fellow eugenicists, who saw this as a chance to have truly eugenic regimes, and a general "cleansing of the race", and cheered on as people like Hitler and Mussolini spread their reigns of ethnic cleansing and terror.

Artists ’have structurally different brains’ 2014 04 17
Artists have structurally different brains compared with non-artists, a study has found.
Participants’ brain scans revealed that artists had increased neural matter in areas relating to fine motor movements and visual imagery.
