Did Robert Heinlein believe in racial & genetic purity? Message Board

Many of Heinlein's books talk about the group of people known as the Howards who practiced selective breeding to breed a race of long lived people. Isn't this breeding for racial superiority and if so does that make Heinlein a racial purist?
