The problem with the comparsion is you seem to think American society hasn't progressed at all since the 1920s. Personally I think it be very hard for the type racism to exist in today's society. Racism today is more subtle, less overt then the past. With the relevation the Holocaust and the sucess of the Civil Rights movement has made that type of racism very unpopular in the Western world. If the government executed anyone without a trial on national TV, they would have groups like the ACLU after them, there would be senate hearings, and bunch of other things that wouldn't have done in
30s. The fact that mutants were killed isn't unrealistic, the fact that the government was killing is not unrealistic, the fact they were doing it on national TV, using methods that lead to deaths of a lot of normal humans in the process and people just ate it up, is unrealistic.
Yeah, that's my point... the racism and/or murders would be more subtle and private. Anyway, just because society approves more of other races of the same species doesn't mean that an entirely new type of sentient being with entirely new rules wouldn't upturn society. It's like Terry Pratchett said... white and black team up against green.
