    Who was our Most Racist President?

    I gotta go with FDR here. He's got Tuskegee ad the internment of Japanese Americans to his credit. I was going to say LBJ, but FDR definitely has an edge because of his treatment of the Japanese

    What say you USMB?

    I have to disagree.

    None of them ever put a whole group of American citizens in internment camps based solely on the race like FDR did with the Japanese. Further, none of them would experiment on blacks the way FDR did with his Tuskegee Syphilis Experiments. It's not far fetched to see how Nazi scientists might have been influenced by FDR's pioneering Eugenics work at Tuskegee

    Well you know my feelings on LBJ. He dropped the N word like a Sunday preacher talking about Jesus and it's probably likely that he had both Malcolm X and Martin Luther King assassinated for being so "uppity" but I have to go with FDR

    With the Japanese camps, I can agree on the basis of sheer numbers

    Right, that alone might have been enough, but he had been experimenting on blacks with untreated syphilis for 9 years by that point and several had already died horrible deaths.
