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, 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?

    They were, because they hated Jews, and killed 7 Million of them. No other reason except for that they were Jews. They also murdered Homosexuals, Christians, or anyone that would go against their beliefs

    Just remember, Germany in the early 1900s was suffering from a weak economy due to WWI and blamed them on immigrants when really....they were so full of hate that being poor was what was really killing them. And you're wrong, there are quite a few racists in Germany, but they're closeted racists, meaning, they only get mad when a fellow German is attacked by a minority and blaming all minorities. European countries could go very extreme if they feel their economy is doing bad blaming it on ethnic immigrants. Also, I hate to sound so negative, but another mass genocide like the Holocaust could happen again, but in a different way. Instead of a traditional war, it will come in the form of terrorism. If you look at the U.S., terrorism comes in mass shootings in schools, public streets, public venues, etc etc. In the middle east, it's about religion. In Southeast asia, Sub-Saharan Africa, and Latin American countries, there is so much poverty there that anyone can become extreme.
