What I’m Reading: The Second Coming of the KKK – 14 in a series – “The National Education Association formed a eugenical practices committee. “

August 17th, 2019

“Leading eugenists such as Madison Grant and Harvard PhD Lothrop Stoddard led the campaign to encourage greater fertility among the “superior” class and to discourage fertility among the inferior class—and their definitions of these classes were identical to the Klan’s. Many universities and colleges required students to study eugenics. Every biology textbook of the period included a chapter on eugenics. The National Education Association formed a eugenical practices committee. 42 Thirty states passed eugenical compulsory sterilization laws. In short, there was nothing aberrant in the Klan’s racial hierarchy.”
