abortion is genocide for African Americans? No

There's the statistics that show that African American women epecially those living below poverty line choose abortions at nearly triple the rate of whites in general.

These and other facts are conflated to advance an argument that the proliferation of abortion in the black community is genocidal and maybe a conspiracy.  Usually there are assertions that this was the intention years ago of the first feminists.

Yet, a look at the facts used to bolster the claims shows the opposite.
How would it be genocidal for a group to abort the  fetus' or potential babies if you will of the least educated, lowest income, and worst off among them?

That would leave the rest of the "born" to come from the relatively better educated, higher income, and overall better off.  If the process continued, then this would naturally strengthen the black community.
