North Carolina “considers” compensation for Eugenics Law Victims? Fat Chance

From BBC News
“More than 60,000 Americans were sterilised, many against their will, as part of a eugenics movement that finished in 1979, aimed at keeping the poor and mentally ill from having children. Now, decades on, one state is considering compensation.”
2,900 victims still alive, but the State Legislators are quibbling over paying them because of “the Economy” which their own so-called “conservative” policies destroyed.
These would be the same Legislators who are working on drafting a liberty-destroying Racial Profile Law similar to the Arizona-Alabama-Georgia-whoever is next- “show your papers” law which will cost far more to implement, enforce and ultimately compensate the victims of Police Brutality which WILL result from such racist profiling.
Apparently the stated goal of the Eugenics movement didn’t get accomplished, because there are enough North Carolina residents who are Stupid enough to vote for such racist actions. Probably many of the same ones who voted to keep Eugenics going, it IS, after all, a darling notion of the Nazis, Klan and other TeaParty fellow travelers
