The Nizkor Project: Remembering the Holocaust (Shoah)

Were there any American precedents for the Nuremberg Laws?


50. Were there any American precedents for the Nuremberg Laws?

The IHR says:

Many states in the U.S.A. had laws preventing intermarriage and sexual relations between persons of different races long before the Nazis.

Nizkor replies:

This is just a guess, but it seems likely that the penalty for breaking the law in America was not the same as the penalty in Nazi Germany: death.

In any case, this is just more irrelevant moral relativism.
