Statistic shocking in light that the majority population there is white

It sounds like a nefarious plan from a white supremacist organization - but it appear that the majority of the babies killed in the state of Mississippi are from black mother who voluntarily abort their unwanted pregnancies. It's been learned that 72 percent of all babies aborted in that southern state are black.

Whites in Mississippi outnumber blacks by a ratio of 1.6-to-1. Despite that difference, the data show that black abortions comprised, on average, 72 percent of the total over the last 16 years
