Analysis / Bias
In review, Black Genocide advocates for an anti-abortion policy through the publication of graphic photos and comparing Planned Parenthood to Nazi Germany and Slavery. They also provide articles from other sources such as the Questionable Breitbart, WND, and Infowars. They advance the idea that African Americans are intentionally being aborted in a form of Genocide. In general, they publish misleading propaganda from a far-right perspective.
Overall, we rate Black Genocide Questionable based on extreme right bias, the use of poor sources, debunked conspiracy theories, and propaganda. (D. Van Zandt 10/17/2016) Updated (8/26/2020)
