Madison Grant, the forefather of Eugenic Law, was an influential Eugenicist with strong beliefs, “The cross between a white man and an Indian is an Indian; the cross between a white and a negro is a negro… When it becomes thoroughly understood that the children of mixed marriages between contrasted races belong to the lower type, the importance of transmitting in unimpaired purity the blood inheritance of ages will be appreciated at its full value” (Grant, Madison). Grant, like Judge Bazile, wanted to maintain the purity of each race because he believed “inferior” races had less favorable genetics compared to whites. Eugenic Law favored the procreation of whites to improve human genetics and the sterilization of “inferior” races such as African Americans, essentially an elitist Klu Klux Klan (Eugenics Movement). Loving v. Virginia eliminated Eugenic Law entirely because there were no longer laws prohibiting the mixing of races, so the “purity” Eugenicists strived for was no longer achievable. Seventeen states were directly affected by Loving v. Virginia, all seventeen of those southern states were forced to annul any bans on interracial marriage (See Figure 1). White supremacy was slowly being broken down because groups similar to Eugenics had no basis since diversity in America was increasing and races were beginning to intertwine.
