Wilson was a limp wristed coward who could have dealt with race issues but refused and openly segregated federal offices (BTW he was a Northerner and the South in the progressive era was working towards less segregation which Wilson did not like). He even contributed to the KKK. He also was the fool that introduced the Federal reserve Act and the federal trade commission which was one more rape of the founder's vision of a small federal government. One more president to rape state sovereignty and ignore the 10th amendment without amending it
