Why did white people think it was ok to treat black people badly?

Racist white people of the past (just like present thinking of racist white people of today) thought it was okay to treat blacks badly because they convinced themselves no race was greater than the white race and, in many instances, no race was lower than the black race. Many of the racists felt blacks were either animals or even lower than that, so, to them, they had no right to be treated like human beings.

Italy
Decade - 1930s

How did Italy threaten world peace in the 1930s?

In 1935 Italy invaded Abyssinia (Ethiopia), a primitive country with a small and poorly equipped army, and no air force. The world was outraged but Italy was not stopped. As with the earlier Japanese invasion of Manchuria, the League of Nations proved itself impotent when it came to curtailing such aggression. In 1938 the Munich Conference doomed the small nation of Czechoslovakia to German occupation because Mussolini portrayed himself as a peacemaker but actually was in partnership with Hitler. In 1939 Italy and Germany signed the Pact of Steel which became the basis for the Axis alliance in World War 2; an alliance which Japan would later join.
