Quote
In 1938, some months after the initial publication of The Hobbit, J. R. R. Tolkien and his British publisher, Stanley Unwin, opened talks with Rütten & Loening, a Berlin-based publishing house who were keen to translate the novel for the German market. All was going well until, in July, they wrote to Tolkien and asked for proof of his Aryan descent. Tolkien was furious, and forwarded their letter to his publisher along with two possible replies — one in which their question was delicately side-stepped, and one, seen below, in which Tolkien made his displeasure known with considerable style.

Sweet.

I'm sure I'm reading too much into them, but Tolkien's novels strike me as pretty race-conscious, to say the least.

It is OK to be racist against Indians, Kenyans, Ugandans, Zulu, Bantu and the like.  Just don't be racist against the Joos.  That be real bad.

I honestly don't know, but I can imagine so...i mean if one is already bigotted as it is within your own race, one's bigotry doesn't stop against the Jews.

I think the Nazis would have viewed the Indians as, at best, degenerated Nordics who had interbred with inferior races. The Nazi approach to the Gypsies (who originally come from northwest India) was one of extermination.

An English author upset about German racism.  When it comes to racism, the English wrote the book.  Look who coined the term "Consentration Camp" and when.

Reduction of Nazi racial theory to a singular statement is difficult. Even more difficult is what "Nazi" praxis would be in a simple statement.

Indeed.  For instance, I've read in several reliable places that Hitler had the goal of Japan ruling Asia.

Certainly explains why, on December 11, 1941, three days after the U.S. declared war on Japan, Germany declared war on the U.S.

Wouldn't this be for convenience sake, rather than spreading yourself out thin?  I mean, if Hitler had the choice and power, he'd probably turn against the Japs too.

First hyperbole.

And if the British didn't get involved in the affairs of the Germans peoples, the costs and ravages of war would not have made work and annihilation camps the method of choice for enforcing the Aryanization of the German World.

From the wikipedia article: "How the native Malagasy population of Madagascar was to fit in with this plan was never elaborated upon."
