Is Planned Parenthood a racist organization?

In a disturbing YouTube documentary, a pro-life student at UCLA did an undercover project on Planned Parenthood clinics across the country. An actor working with her contacted several Planned Parenthood clinics, saying he wanted to make a donation to fund abortions of black babies. He said if there were fewer black babies around his son would have a better chance of getting into college, and he wanted to lower the number of black people in America. The response of the Planned Parenthood representatives? Sure. No problem.

Here's one of the dialogues taken from the YouTube documentary:
Caller: ...I really faced trouble with affirmative action, and I don't want my kids to be disadvantaged against black kids.
Planned Parenthood: Yes, absolutely.
Caller: And we don't, you know, we just think the less black kids out there the better.
Planned Parenthood: (Laughs) Understandable, understandable... This is the first time I've had a donor call and make this kind of request, so I'm excited and want to make sure I don't leave anything out.

While shocking this is nothing new for Planned Parenthood. According to Blessed are the Barren: "At a March 1925 international birth control gathering held in new york City, a speaker warned of the menace posed by the 'black' and 'yellow' peril. The man was not a national Socialist (Nazi) or leader of the Ku Klux Klan. The speaker was Dr. S. Adolphus Knopf, a member of Margaret Sanger's American Birth Control league (ABCL), which along with other groups eventually became known as Planned Parenthood."

In fact, PP founder Margaret Sanger was a proponent of eugenics and supported eliminating the "unfit" in the population. Of her birth control efforts, she once wrote: "Birth Control is thus the entering wedge for the Eugenic educator...the unbalance between the birth rate of the 'unfit' and the 'fit' admittedly the greatest present menace to civilization..." She wrote this in 1921 for the Birth Control Review which had on its masthead, "Birth Control: To Create a Race of Thoroughbreds." (Taken from Blessed are the Barren.)

Not only does Planned Parenthood love getting money to kill unborn children but they're also seemingly fine with getting money from racist people who want to kill specifically black babies. Once the moral firewall of killing unborn babies is breached, I suppose there's no problem with being racist about it.
