So their horror would be more how the Reichs' racism manifests mostly?

Makes me wonder if things like the Jim Crow laws or those impromptu lynchings, or South Africa's apartheid laws, would be considered sort of distasteful on Gernsback?

They probably despise lynchings as a breakdown of law and order. But Jim Crow laws might be more tolerable as people staying "in their proper place".
It's extreme "inefficient bigotry" that they would disapprove of, not that certain ethnicities are "genetically inferior" and need different rules.
