basically the state of north carolina used to have a eugenics program in which they sterilized poor/sick/not well off/alcoholic people so they would have less of these people. all i can say is wtf. i never knew a program like this existed at one point (i think they stopped it though). your thoughts?

Yes, the US Eugenics program is a hideous part of history not taught to us here in the States. It's pretty bad that we can't even own up to it.

“It’s an ugly chapter in North Carolina’s book, we have a wonderful book, but there’s an ugly chapter,” Womble said.


Yeah I wouldn't say that. This is like one chapter of an entire Twilight series' worth of backwardness and dumbassery.

This.

I just found out about it this year when talking about sterilization in my Human Sexuality class. They also did it to non-white races, a lot. I actually know people who have had it happen to family members.

Its really quite scary how are past is so glorified, yet its really REALLY ugly and despicable.

I took a class in college called re thinking the holocaust, check out the history of californias forced sterilization and eugenics practices if you really wanna see some fu#@$d up s&%t.

It's awful. Both my parents were forcefully sterilised. That was quite a long time before I was born, mind you

It was so recent too. My sociology professor said that during the Nazi war trials, they said that we were part of their inspiration. This country is so bigoted.

You opened your mouth first, bro. You wanted to bash us for our history while ignoring your own. I'm not trying to start an argument about which country is better, I really don't care.


Huh? "His own" history is American history, due to him being, you know, American. Living in Germany does not turn a man into a German.

Wha- dude, I'm American. I just live here in Germany.

And for the record, Germans have been completely humbled by their horrible history and don't go around proclaiming to be the best country in the world. In fact, patriotism is seen as a very bad thing over here.

I also think that regardless of my nationality, anyone would see the irony in a country like US making (or at least used to make, when I was still there) their kids sing the national anthem every morning, which contains the line "Land of the free and home of the brave".

EDIT: V oh gandalf, you rascal.

Sorry, I thought you were a German. I'm sure you could at least see where I was coming from with my remark.

I do agree with what you're saying about the pledge of allegiance, and I know Germany is humbled by what happened. I hope the US someday will be the same way, but it's hard to imagine.

We did both back in elementary school

But then, that was in Texas, under the wonderful governing of dear ol' Dubya...

You don't have to say it. I haven't said the pledge since about 6/7th grade? I can be respectful, but still disagree with the US. I refuse to say it.

(and before i get bashed like coreysmonster, I am a US citizen in the UK)

Weren't you in at least middle school by the time W. was in office?

Each state is different. When I lived in NM, we said the pledge and the pledge to New Mexico. I'm like why does a state need a pledge?

And yes, every morning.

Patriotism used to a big thing here, just like Christianity. Fortunately, the days of blindly following your government because that's what you're supposed to do might be coming to an end. And this coming from a military veteran.
