Darwin a Racist and White Supremacist?
(1 min Audio Report – Faith2Action)
The full title of Darwin’s famous book is: “On the Origin of Species by Means of Natural Selection or the Preservation of Favoured Races in the Struggle for Life.”
So, what are the favored races? Which race is going to occupy the inferior place nearest the ape and which is going to occupy the superior position furthest away?
Notorious racist Madison Grant used Darwin’s theory to promote what he called ‘scientific racism.’ Grant spoke of the survival of the “white master race” in his book, The Passing Of The Great Race, which was translated into German. In 1930, Grant received a letter from an aspiring politician, saying ‘your book is my bible’. The man was Adolf Hitler.
