Article-a-Day #127: I Love Ancestry- Walter Plecker, a member of the Eugenics movement had an agenda targeted at “Indians”, mixed-race individuals and Blacks in the State of Virginia

Walter Plecker was a member of the Eugenics movement, and Plecker had an agenda targeted at “Indians”, mixed-race individuals and Blacks in the State of Virginia. Plecker intentionally attempted to eliminate any evidence of any “Indians” in the State of Virginia, in order to purify the “white race”.

Walter Plecker modified birth records in the State of Virginia, I learned that in some cases Plecker actually ordered any documentation record on any individual that indicated “Indian” destroyed, as well, Plecker threatened midwives that indicated “Indian” as the race on the birth certificate.
