White separatism is a separatist political movement that seeks separate economic and cultural development for white people. White separatists generally claim genetic affiliation with Anglo-Saxon cultures, Nordic cultures, or other white European cultures. Some also affiliate with white ethnic cultures that developed outside of Europe, like the Neo-Confederates and Boer-Afrikaner Nationalists.

White separatists are often found among Christian Identity groups,[citation needed] some of whom allege that the United States is a "Zionist Occupation Government". As a result, many proposals have been submitted to create separate white homelands in locations such as the northwestern corner of the United States.[1]

Many white separatists argue that racial separatism differs from racial supremacy in that separatists believe that all races and ethnic groups have the right to develop their own culture separately nor should any race dominate another. They argue, however, that racial differences should be respected, and they strongly oppose miscegenation.

Critics claim that contemporary white separatism is a public facade adopted by white supremacists.[2] Supporters of white separatism claim that describing white separatists as white supremacist is a smear.[3] White separatists claim that their desire to remove themselves from racially integrated society and to segregate based on race removes the possibility of subjugating other ethnic groups, and thus has no relation to white supremacy.

Racial segregation is characterized by separation of different racial groups in daily life, such as eating in restaurants, drinking from water fountains, using restrooms, attending school, going to the movies, or in renting or purchasing a home. Racial segregation is enforced by the government of a multicultural nation, which seeks to separate different cultures within the borders of the same state. The concept of homeland separatism is that all different ethnic or racial groups have the right to self-determination in their own homeland. The view is that no cultural group should govern over another, and different cultures should live in peace and harmony with each other by developing separately in their own nation state.
