Default the racial truths about Hitler & NSDAP

A large amount of what has been written about Hitler and Nazi
Germany has been particularly subject to the pressure of political
correctness: a good example is the story of 1936 Olympics and the
Black American athlete Jesse Owens."

Here is an excerpt from a book my friend fished out of the Internet:

The 1936 Olympics The story most repeated about Hitler and the 1936
Olympic Games in Berlin,
which were unquestionably put on as a political showcase for Nazi
Germany, is that Hitler refused to shake the hand of the American
Black athlete Jesse Owens after the latter had won a race.

In reality what happened was that Hitler personally attended the first
day of the track and field competition on 2 August 1936, and did
personally congratulate the German athlete Hans Woellke, who became
the first German to win a gold medal in the Olympics since 1896.

Throughout the rest of the day, Hitler continued to receive Olympic
champions, German and non-German, in his VIP box.

The next day, 3 August, the chairman of the International Olympic
Committee, Comte Baillet-Latour, approached Hitler early in the
morning and told the German leader that he had violated Olympic
protocol by having winners paraded to his box.

Hitler apologized and gave an undertaking that he would from then on
refrain from publicly congratulating any winners, German or otherwise.
During this day, Owens won his gold medals - and in line with the
Olympic Committee's ruling, Hitler did not shake his hand, or anybody
else's for
that matter, at the games again. It is therefore utterly false to
claim that Hitler deliberately chose to
ignore Owens. In fact, in the very autobiography that the Encarta
Encyclopedia extract refers to, The Jesse Owens Story, Owens himself
recounted how Hitler had stood up and waved to him: "When I passed
the Chancellor he arose, waved his hand at me, and I waved back at
him. I think the writers showed bad taste in criticizing the man of
the hour in Germany."

Another common story about the 1936 Olynpic games is that Owens'
victory "disproved the Nazi master race theory" - in fact the Olympic
games as a whole were won by the German team with 89 medals, compared
to the 56 medals won by the second placed USA team.

In what was to become an act of extreme irony, the American president
of the time, Franklin D. Roosevelt, then involved in an election and
concerned about the reaction in the USA's southern states, refused to
see Owens at the White House: Owens was later to remark that it was
Roosevelt, not Hitler, who snubbed him.
=====

Thought for the Day:
"It's interesting to see a photo of the French contingent entering
the Olympic arena behind the French flag, and every one of them is
giving Hitler's private box the National Socialist salute."

Owens said he was treated better in Nazi Germany then he was in the USA.
