the one topic never talked about in schools these days . Practically Every adult gives me a blank stare when I asked them on this topic . I think this the bleakest part of America's history in the 1900's its ties with the eugenics used and condemned bye the Nazis , is literally being taken out of history , and not one conspiracy theory is about this . I only found out through this from a video game . ( gta 4 ) . This is the best ( so far) suppressed piece of history the govt ever did . Women and Global Human Rights for more info

Historians, sociologists, and other social scientists have talked about it for decades. It being covered in the classroom is another matter entirely.

Getting information from GTA is also a bad idea, as it is heavily based on satire.

Honestly, I think a lot of it is forgotten and never mentioned on purpose.

Margaret Sanger was one of the leaders of the Eugenics movement in the US in the early part of the 20th century. She not only believed that only Whites should be allowed to reproduce, she also promoted exclusionary immigration policies, forced sterilization of those who would be unfit to reproduce (including most minorities). And that this should be done to make a "better future".

But nobody ever says negative things about Saint Margaret Sanger, the founder of Planned Parenthood. An organization created to advance her eugenics beliefs (by providing free "family planning" in urban ghettos).
