Here's something Skyrim doesn't directly tell you...
The Thalmor tell people that they don't want Talos worship basically because it justifies racism against elves, however there is a much more sinister alterior motive.
In the Elder Scrolls universe, the only way to kill a god (Aedra/Daedra) is to remove their physical link to Nirn. Now it's nearly impossible to do since they're so entwined in the lives of most mortals, but Talos is different. Talos is the only Divine that wasn't an Aedra, he was a Nord. His link to Nirn is The Empire.
The Thalmor are trying to dismantle the empire, and thus destroy Talos, so the high elves can rise.
The Stormcloaks have no idea what they're doing, they're simply fighting to preserve their way of life yeah some of them are pretty racist, but you would be too if a bunch of knife eared politicians told you that you couldn't live life how you fucking felt like it , and the Empire is trying to keep order in Skyrim from the rebels and the other antagonists of the game, but they have no idea that if they stop the Stormcloaks, they're going to weaken Talos significantly.
tl;dr The Thalmor are trying to destroy Talos and the empire so they can take over, the emprie and the stormcloaks have very similar interests and don't really realize it

Literally every race in the elder scrolls is extremely racist. Especially Altmer. The only reason the Nords are considered particularly racist is because they are the whitest of white men and believe Skyrim belongs to them Which it does, seeing as how it is in fact the place they come from . It certainly doesn't help that they make up the massive majority of the game's population, so when you meet a racist person they are likely going to be a Nord only because you are most likely to meet a Nord.
I don't know what the fuck makes you think releasing a population from the rule of an empire is fascist, but what the hell.

But you don't see this kind of rampant racism towards all other races in neither Morrowind nor Oblivion. Sure, the dunmer call everyone else "outlander", and there's the whole slavery thing, but there's no "Morrowind is for Dunmer, get the fuck out of our country" thing all over the place, like there is in Skyrim

In Oblivion, this is because the people of Cyrodiil interact with the members of other races on a daily basis and are at the peak of civility. Being openly racist in Skyrim is commonplace except in Solitude where people behave more civilized, despite still being almost exclusively Nords and usually met with a "whatever, dick". Whereas in Cyrodiil saying something slightly questionable in mixed company, racist or not, is likely to cause scandal and harm your business. A major concern, seeing how merchantry is the primary trade of the province. Furthermore, note that in Skyrim, you might hear an aggressor of any race say something along the lines of "Skyrim Belongs to the Nords, Argonian!" Wheras in Cyrodiil an aggressor say "I'm going to make a pair of boots out of your fucking skin, lizard!"
In Morrowind people weren't quite racist per say, more xenophobic. However they didn't have the empire come and tell them they couldn't worship the Tribunal new or old , so they had no reason to resent other races in specific. (on that note, the Nords have plenty of reasons to resent every single other race, individually.)
On top of all this, these are games we're talking about. Each produced in the real world, by real people, trying to sell a product. Blatant racism is a subject most would rather avoid, particularly around the turn of the last millennium. Now it's an extremely popular, yet minor feature in games of the current decade. TES5 handles it pretty light-hartedly by comparison.
