Any list of worst Presidents should include Wilson, just for his racism that would make Strom Thurmond blush.

Wilson almost lost the election because his wife was a direct descendant of Pochahontas. She was 1/16 Powhattan. In fact, I think Virginia (maybe MD) changed its racial laws regarding those of native ancestry to accommodate Edith Wilson's heritage designating that 1/16 native is technically white so he could run. This is where everyone gets the idea that "quantum qualifies" when in fact it doesn't.
Also, all the battleships commissioned during his terms in office were named after Native Americans because Mrs. W. was left in charge of the naming.
So I am going to argue against the "degree" of racism in your claim ;-)
