In the southern regions of what had been the original United States, racial harmony was virtually unknown. In most nation-states, whites harshly lorded it over blacks, except in Mississippi, where the situation was reversed.
Under the ideology of the Nazi Party, not even all white people enjoyed racial advantages. Jews were the main target of the Nazis' persecution; the Jews were believed extinct by 2010. Slavs were also targeted as "inferior".
Conversely, certain darker skinned peoples, such as Indians and Persians (from whose history the term Aryan originated), were defined as white, and so permitted into the upper strata of the German society. Others, such as Africans and Arabs, were subject to the same genocide that exterminated the Jews, though remaining populations would be used for slave labor for dirty and dangerous work by the Reich.
White People were the top of the hierarchy in both the United States and the Confederate States, enjoying untold political, economic, and social advantages over black people. In the Confederacy, that was due to the traditional belief that blacks were inferior to whites, while in the U.S. it was mostly due to the fact that there was only a handful of blacks in the country. In the aftermath of the Population Reduction perpetrated by the Confederate government against their Negro residents during the Second Great War, whites in the U.S. began to re-evaluate their own status quo.
The Race found it odd that Tosevites practiced racial stratification to such an extent. They found themselves less comfortable among white people than other groups, because the skin tone of whites was the farthest from the coloration of the Race's scales among all the human races.
