Were the Nazis racist?

I'm a little confused about something. The Nazi party had 8,500,000 members. And Germany over whelming supported Hitler. In the German election of 1933, Hitler received 17,277,000 votes. Which was nearly 44 percent of the votes. Second place, Otto Wels received 7,181,000 votes. About 8 months after that,... show more I'm a little confused about something.

Second place, Otto Wels received 7,181,000 votes. About 8 months after that, Germany decided to have a sole leader party. 92.1 percent of Germans voted in favor of this. In clause to this, after every 1,000 days they had another referendum to decide if the leader should stay in power. The next one in March 1936, Hitler received 98.80 percent voting in favor. The next one after that, in 1938, Hitler received 98.93 percent voting in favor. Hitler was insanely popular in Germany. In America, at it's height, the KKK had 4,000,000 members. That was less than half the members the Nazis had and America had a larger population. People still say racism is a problem in America because of its past. How was it almost all of Germany could go from Nazis, to being one of the most liberal countries in the EU? Germans are insanely liberal today. No one in Germany taught their children racism or nazi beliefs? No one hears about Germans being racist today. Did they really think they were the master race, or was it national pride?

Was it all ally propaganda? How is Germany so none racist? Or is racism still super high in Germany?
