"Survival of the Fittest"

"Survival of the fittest" was coined not by Charles Darwin (1809-1882) but by the bigot Herbert Spencer (1827-1903) whose Social Darwinism helped justify the subjugation of non-white peoples in Africa during the period of European colonialism from 1860-1914.The image “http://www.d.umn.edu/cla/faculty/jhamlin/2111/gifs/Spencer.gif” cannot be displayed, because it contains errors.
