What ways was World War II a racial war in both the European and Pacific theaters?


World War II was a racial war in the context of the world. The Nazis believe that they were racially superior to non-Nordics and particularly to non-Europeans. The Japanese believe that they were also superior to non-Japanese, particularly to Chinese, Koreans and Caucasians. World War II was fought in order to establish racial equality to and squash any type of ethnic and racial prejudice. World War Ii was also the catalyst for racial self-determination for many Asian and African countries. It also was the embryonic development of the American Civil Rights movement.
