  Molefi Kete Asante - Scholarly Papers
To say that German history has been contested by race and the problems of race is to say the known; to argue, however, that the Afro-Germans of all mixed race people have been especially brutalized by the official leitmotif of the German society is to indict the politics of race.
The German people have expressed their sense of nationality in racial and biological terms for centuries and this has meant that to be German or at least to be considered a German citizen one had to be German, not German and African or German and Chinese but German and German.
To be not quite German because of the African mixture means that the Afro-German are outside of the cultural center that is considered to be German by the Germans themselves.

 Germans - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Germans (German: die Deutschen) are defined as an ethnic group, in the sense of sharing a common German culture, speaking the German language as a mother tongue and being of German descent.
Germans are also defined by their national citizenship, which had, in the course of German history, varying relations to the above (German culture), according to the influence of subcultures and society in general (also refer to Imperial Germans, Federal Germans etc. and Demographics of Germany).
In addition, a significant number of German citizens (close to 5%), although traditionally considered ethnic Germans, are in fact foreign-born and thus often retain the cultural identities and languages or their native countries in addition to being Germans, a fact that sets them apart from those born and raised in Germany.

 - Darwinism and the Nazi Race Holocaust -
The ‘superior race’ belief was based on the theory of group inequality within each species, a major presumption and requirement of Darwin’s original ‘survival of the fittest’ theory.
