Abraham Lincoln was attributed to have said to Harriet Beecher Stowe, “So you’re the little lady that started this Great War”, Stowe’s impassioned novel Uncle Tom’s Cabin greatly influenced millions of Americans positively and negatively. Uncle Tom’s Cabin angered and incited W.D. Griffith and racially bigoted Southern Americans to produce anti-black hate propaganda and segregated/ apartheid organizations; most notably the Klu Klux Klan (White Knights), The White Citizen’s Council and Eugenic organizations, used to promote the doctrine of Black inferiority. Hitler’s Nazi regime borrowed greatly from the propaganda and tactics of White Southerns and American Eugenics, and employed the great film maker Leni Riefenstal to Nazi propaganda film, the classic was “The Triumph of the Will” in 1935. Young women in America’s South were routinely sterilized and brutilized, on the flimsy excuse that they might be retarded. Black men were coerced into the ‘Tuskegee Experiment” syphilis study; with the promise of burial insurence, and denied available lifesaving drugs, during a decades long study sanctioned by the Center for Disease Control.
