The North Carolina General Assembly recently passed the first bill that will grant reparations of $50,000 to victims who underwent forced sterilization within the state between 1929 and 1974. This is the first step in recognizing a very dark mark on American history, however victims, such as 58-year-old Elaine Riddick Jessie, are rightfully claiming that the money does not come close to eradicating the harm caused. Riddick appeared on Anderson today, claiming, "If I accepted it, what kind of value am I putting on my life?...I mean, $50,000 won't pay my medical bills. $50,000 won't even pay for the counseling that I've already received...It won't pay for the kid that I can't hold in my arms."
