nowadays if you run a club and dont allow someone in because of race, your club gets shut down. If you place a job offer looking for a female secretary, you end up in a trial for violating the everyone is equal.
I don't get the point you're trying to make. Nazi Germany and 21st century USA are completely different worlds and not even comparable, even more so than USA and Afghanistan today.
Germany had been ruined completely since WW1: there were political murders daily, street violence, starvation, no coherent government, 8 million people without a job, no real support for those with no money, all your savings are worthless, you live daily with the threat of a Communist takeover. Violence and brutality had become a way of life. Not to mention there being totally different cultures.
Your comparison is about as insightful as saying "isn't it ironic that there's loads of food in America but people in Africa have none?" No, not really.
