Rwandan Eugenics

Belge colonizers were into measuring cranial dimensions of Rwandans and making them do calisthenics in the name of evolving the barbarians. Back in the day, it was all about ethnicity. Today, its about mental capacity. And, creepily, forced sterilization. Wednesday, Human Rights Watch urged:

Rwanda to revise a draft law which it said would introduce compulsory HIV testing and require all people with mental disabilities to be sterilized

The draft legislation would oblige the Rwandan government to “suspend fertility for mentally handicapped people,” the rights group said.

“Systematic forced sterilization had been recognised as a crime against humanity by the Rome Statute of the International Criminal Court,” it said.

It is beyond profoundly disturbing when a country subject to socio-political eugenics that led to a genocide drafts legislation for a forced sterilization program.
