The Long Shadow of Eugenics in America
As young girls, the Relf sisters were sterilized without consent. What does the government owe them — and the thousands of other living victims?
In the summer of 1973, Minnie Lee and Mary Alice were taken from their home in Montgomery, cut open and sterilized against their will and without the informed consent of their parents by a physician working in a federally funded clinic. The Relf case would change the course of history: A lawsuit filed on their behalf, Relf v. Weinberger, helped reveal that more than 100,000 mostly Black, Latina and Indigenous women were sterilized under U.S. government programs over decades. It also officially ended this practice and forced doctors to obtain informed consent before performing sterilization procedures — though as it would turn out, forced sterilizations by state governments would continue into the 21st century.

(...)

The history of legalized forced sterilization by the government begins in 1907, when Indiana became the first state to pass a eugenics law providing for the involuntary sterilization of “confirmed criminals, idiots, imbeciles and rapists.” Those affected early on were mainly men viewed as criminalistic, including those whose “defect” was supposedly excessive masturbation or homosexuality.

“That first law focused on vasectomizing poor white men who were identified as being sexually deviant,” says Dr. Alexandra Minna Stern, a professor of American history and culture at the University of Michigan and co-director of the Sterilization and Social Justice Lab. Her research team studies the history of eugenic sterilization in the United States and has collected the records of more than 60,000 survivors in California, Iowa, Michigan, North Carolina and Utah. “We’re talking about sterilizing populations that are being seen as hypersexualized or as sexually inappropriate, as promiscuous, as not having middle-class sexual respectability.”

"After more than 200 failed attempts to outlaw lynching, Congress is finally
succeeding in taking the long overdue action by passing the Emmett Till
Antilynching Act
. Hallelujah. It's long overdue," said Majority Leader
Chuck Schumer in remarks on the Senate floor after the bill's passage.
    That it took so long to pass is a "bitter stain" on America, the New York Democrat added.
      "The first antilynching legislation was introduced a century ago, and after
      so long, the Senate has now finally addressed one of the most shameful
      elements of this nation's past by making lynching a federal crime," he
      said.

      More than 1,700 congressmen once enslaved Black people. This is who they were, and how they shaped the nation.

      Black Lives Matter stands with Jussie Smollett after verdict, but Don Lemon does not

      Well, at least the members of BLM and Trump supporters have something in common.

      Could have also put this in the What Makes You Laugh...HA!

      Black Lives Matter is still standing with Jussie Smollett after the actor was convicted Thursday of staging a racist, homophobic attack and lying to police about it.

      Not particularly impressed with Black Lives Matter. That said, I fully support the notion that oppressed visible minorities have an inherent right to hurt their own.   Maybe BLM would like to bring Robert Mugabe back from the grave to help make Black people in North America suffer? 

      The BLM trash in Toronto recently got involved in a debate that saw the Green Party of Canada implode.   The spokesperson for BLM (Canada) expressed support for the anti-Semitic ethnic cleansing of the Holy Lands. 

      Fellow anti-Arab terrorists in North America should rejoice at this source of political support for a greater and more glorious Israel with its lovely discourse of cultural superiority.

      After that, it is hard not to think of BLM Canada as just more vocal racist trash.

      “It’s an allegation as old as America — a sex-crazed Black man accused of attacking a white woman — and it came in Shelby County, the jurisdiction with the most recorded lynchings in the state’s history and a disproportionate number of death sentences.”

      That is not my point.

      You cannot have a meaningful conversation without first agreeing on definitions used in the conversation.

      Conflate away and prevent a meaningful discussion from happening.

      I give up.

      I understand your point entirely. Which is to state that the US is not racist by definition, so any marginalised groups should either shut up or leave.
