About the Edition

Is there a morality to apartheid? As morality is always circumscribed by community it is evident that a society condoning racial segregation will follow a moral framework that justifies and demands apartheid. Given that the United States legalized racial segregation until the 1950"s it is clear that moral codes accompanied the legal codes demanding this apartheid. While the legal codes have been disbanded, the fact that United States cities remain the most racially segregated urban areas in the world suggests that an apartheid morality still exists within white America.To explore and elaborate this segregationist morality I studied the contemporary white nationalist movement, the group most adamantly committed to defining and defending segregation. I analyze the moral framework of this movement and show the connections between nationalism, gender, sexuality, and race within it. I conclude with an analysis of the broader political manifestations of this segregationist morality.
