Ridiculed by experts in its era for being internally contradictory, incoherent, and inaccurate, it was tremendously popular among racists. Although dismissed (accurately) by experts as "re-hashed Gobineau," racists cited it in defense of restricting immigration of eastern Europeans, forced sterilization, segregation, and anti-miscegenation laws. It remains popular among white supremacists, including, ironically enough, people who are not "Nordic."
