White nationalism

type of nationalism or pan-nationalism which advocates a racial definition of national identity for white people

White nationalism is a type of nationalism that sees white people as a race.[1] It also wants to keep a national identity of white people as a race.[2][3][4] Many believers of white nationalism see certain countries (often their own country) as being countries that are for white people only.[5] Often, supporters of white nationalism can also believe in white supremacy, nazism, Ku Klux Klan and other racist policies and ideas.[source?]

The Birth of a Nation is a silent movie from 1915. It is about the Assassination of Abraham Licoln. While it was very innovative, and a commercial success, it was also criticized for being racist, and for advocating white supremacy.

"White nationalism, he said, is the belief that national identity should be built around white ethnicity, and that white people should therefore maintain both a demographic majority and dominance of the nation’s culture and public life. [...] white nationalism is about maintaining political and economic dominance, not just a numerical majority or cultural hegemony".
