Here is the New York Times story on the decision by legislative leaders not to provide any compensation for the victims of the state’s horrific eugenics program.

Republicans did manage to find state money for Johnson and Wales University in Charlotte, the private culinary school that former House Speaker Jim Black used to make sure received state support. 

And then there’s the tax cut for millionaires and wealthy lawyers that was supposed to go only to small businesses.

Interesting priorities on Jones Street these days.

    The victims of the NC’s eugenics program were considered throw away people and remain so.

    When society considers you a “less-than” your rights no longer exist and the people can and will have their way with you. There is no collective guilt or sense of responsibility on the part of the state in this matter only a collective feigning of concern before the survivors.

    This is what I expect out of the state government of NC. I see the hand writng on the wall. We are just throw a ways and we are NOT A PART OF THIS! I think this is sad! NC doesn’t want any Blacks in the state!
