Crafting a Eugenics Law that Works"Race riot" is not an adequate description for the recent activities of the Ku Klux Klan. The outright destruction of the town of Rosewood, Florida has taken place this year. Parts of Oklahoma are under martial law. 30 New York policemen are revealed to be KKK members. Bad as the old KKK was, the new KKK is much worse, and the eugenics movement has helped their membership numbers soar to an all time high of 2.5 million. Scientists seem to support the idea of killing off non-whites to eliminate the "germplasm" infecting the white race. (I am sick of these bigots, but I am doing my best to represent them fairly. Germplasm is what we would call "defective genes", but they know F-all about that.) Despite the best efforts of scientists, they cannot convince lawmakers to kill off the defectives. Instead, so-called imbeciles, morons and epileptics are segregated from the population until they are beyond child-bearing age. It is not exactly prison. It's more like a crummy hospital that you can't leave without permission. Will they give you permission? Yeah... usually to see a movie, but come right back. This system has become expensive, so Virginia is carefully crafting their first sterilization law that will stand the test of the Supreme Court. Virginia's Racial Integrity Act will need a proper test case to make it stick. They will find her next year. Her name is Carrie Buck.   
The Nazi Coup Fails. Hitler's "Struggle" BeginsGermany lost the Great War and is now paying reparations mostly to France. Hyperinflation has pegged the German mark at over 4 million to the dollar. Food riots ensue. The German company, Krupp, issues its own money called Kruppmarks to its workers. It is the only stable currency in Germany and Krupp's workers are grateful. France invades the Ruhr in West Germany in order to pressure Germany to resume reparation payments. Krupp organizes a work stoppage. French troops fire into unarmed workers and Krupp, himself, is arrested for holding a funeral for his dead workers. He is sentenced to 15 years hard labor. Germany needs some serious help, but France won't budge. So in the midst of this mess, Adolf Hitler stages a coup. Why not? It's Thursday. The Nazis attack a beer hall in Munich where a member of the General Staff is giving a speech. Shots are fired. Hitler is injured and the coup fails. Hitler is arrested and charged with High Treason. His very public trial will begin next year and turn him into a national figure.
