A proposal for how to tolerate white nationalism

What if we created the equivalent of a Special Economic Zone for White Nationalists and called it a Special Cultural Zone (SCZ).

The deal is they can have Mississippi and a few other Deep South States to enact and preserve the White Nationalist Culture they want.

In exchange, White Nationalism is not tolerated anywhere else.

There are no White Nationalist rallies allowed in the rest of America. Confederate statues can be taken down. Swastikas are considered prohibited hate speech…etc.

Those who want to engage in White Nationalist culture can go to their designated “Safe Space”.

Federal laws still apply. There is no descent back into slavery and murderous vigilantism.

There is a year long transition period where those who don’t want to be a part of that culture can move out.

Thoughts? Could this work? Why or Why Not?

Update: My proposal is not without historical and academic precedent. A friend shared with me this paper in the comments on the arguments for and against Partitioning, with many historical case studies.


Based on the article I am advocating the position of Proceduralist Partitioning of the Deep South.
