Margaret Sanger had Sharpton in mind when she said this quote.
Woman, Morality, and Birth Control. New York: New York Publishing Company, 1922. Page 12.
We should hire three or four colored ministers, preferably with social-service backgrounds, and with engaging personalities. The most successful educational approach to the N**** is through a religious appeal. We don’t want the word to go out that we want to exterminate the N**** population, and the minister is the man who can straighten out that idea if it ever occurs to any of their more rebellious members.
