The son of a eugenics victim once sterilized after his birth has honored his mother with a beautiful gift as a symbol of his love for her.

Elaine Riddick’s story has captivated the nation.

In Maafa21, Elaine tells how how she became pregnant with Tony after a brutal rape at the age of 13-years-old.

She went on to say that when she gave birth to Tony, the State of North Carolina had her sterilized without her knowledge under their racist eugenics program.

I did not find out that they sterilized me until I was 19-years-old,” Elaine states, “I asked the State of North Carolina why they did that to me. They said it was because I was feeble-minded, that I would not be able to take care of myself, I would not be able to tie my shoes, that I was–just incompetent,” she said.

Below is a clip of Elaine’s story from Maafa21. The film can be viewed in full here.

They were saying that feeble-mindedness is hereditary, so they sterilized me so I would not produce my kind.”

Mind you,” Elaine Riddick stated emotionally in the film, “I am NOT illiterate, nor am I feeble minded.”

Elaine points out that she was able to acquire a college degree, despite the fact that she never went into High School.

In addition, Elaine said that her son now owns and operates his several companies and the state’s assumption that her children would be feeble-minded was drastically incorrect.

Elaine and Tony Riddick have testified before their state legislature about eugenics.

In this emotional testimony, Elaine with her son Tony supporting her asked lawmakers, “So what am I worth? The kids that I did not have, COULD not have. What are THEY worth?”

They slandered me. They ridiculed me and cut me open like I was a hog,” Riddick testified.

From 1929 to 1974, North Carolina forcibly sterilized thousands of people who were deemed to be mentally handicapped, promiscuous or unfit to have children.

In 2013, thanks to testimony by Elaine Riddick, North Carolina lawmakers allocated $10 million to compensate victims who were forcefully sterilized under the state’s secret eugenics program.

  1. I’m glad Ms Riddick stood up for what was right. It is horrific what North Carolina and Planned Parenthood did. No amount of money can undo the horrors of what they did, but I’m glad she stood up and exposed the terrors of a basically Hitler like philosophy does to innocent people
