Eugenics

Eugenics was, quite literally, an effort to breed better human beings—by encouraging the reproduction of people with "good genes" and discouraging those with "bad" genes. Eugenicists effectively lobbied for social legislation to keep racial and ethnic groups separate, to restrict immigration from southern and eastern Europe, and to sterilize people considered "genetically unfit."
