Lothrop Stoddard

Dr. Lothrop Stoddard (1883 - 1950) was a political scientist, historian, writer, and anthropologist. His advocacy of eugenics and anti-immigration are forms of scientific racism. One of his most well-known works was his 1920 book "The Rising Tide of Color Against White World-Supremacy." Despite its title, Stoddard also criticized white nations for invading nations of other races. Clarence Darrow debated Stoddard on the issue "Is the U.S. Immigration Law Beneficial?" Stoddard argued in the affirmative and Darrow argued in the negative on the resolution: "That the Immigration Law discriminating in favor of the races of Northern Europe as opposed to those of Southern Europe is an advantage to the United States." http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lothrop_Stoddard
