HNN Editor We found this story on the website of the American Family News Network. This is how it describes itself: "Whether it's a story about prayer in public schools, workplace restrictions on Christians, or battles for biblical truth within our denominations, the American Family News Network (AFN) is here to tell you what the newsmakers are saying."
Clenard Childress, Jr., assistant to the national director of the Life Education And Resource Network (L.E.A.R.N., Inc.) and pastor of New Calvary Baptist Church in Montclair, New Jersey, has joined with other African-American leaders for protests at the museum over "glaring misrepresentations of African-American history."
"[It] has excluded notable figures such as Clarence Thomas, Mia Love, [and] also the title or anything referenced to eugenics, which has impacted African-Americans in this country more so than any other issue," Childress reports.
The abortion industry targets black women to abort their children, as that was something Planned Parenthood founder Margaret Sanger supported. She considered blacks to be "weeds" that should be rooted out from society.
So Childress' group has filed suit against the museum. But the case is actually against the museum staff, who threatened to forcefully remove the pro-lifers from a public sidewalk during demonstrations in violation of their First Amendment rights.
