White racism

The concept of a "Racial Holy War", or "Rahowa," is a core rallying cry for White racist groups. In 1987, the White Patriot Party declared that a race war had begun.

Race war is the main theme of William Luther Pierce's 1978 novel The Turner Diaries.


The murders perpetrated by Charles Manson and his "Family" were inspired in part by Manson's prediction of Helter Skelter, an apocalyptic race war.

Fictional scenarios

The Turner Diaries is a novel written in 1978 by William Luther Pierce (former leader of the white Nationalist organization National Alliance) under the pseudonym "Andrew Macdonald".[1] The Turner Diaries depicts a violent revolution in the United States which leads to the overthrow of the United States federal government, nuclear war, and, ultimately, to a race war leading to the extermination of all Jews and non-whites.[2] The book was called "explicitly racist and anti-Semitic" by The New York Times and has been labeled the "bible of the racist right" by the Federal Bureau of Investigation.

The African American actor LeVar Burton published in 1997 a science fiction novel called Aftermath about a future civil war in the United States which began about 2020 and evolved into a race war. The novel takes place in about the year 2025 and is about the aftermath of this war.
