Although the white separatist movement stereotype is that of a Southern phenomenon tied to an uneducated and disenfranchised segment of men, sociologists Betty A. Dobratz and Stephanie L. Shanks-Meile show that the movement is in reality more complex and multifaceted. To compile this study, the authors interviewed more than 125 white separatists, attended rallies, congresses, and other gatherings, and examined many movement-generated documents. The result is a compelling book that chronicles the history, ideology, and strategies of the white separatist movement.

I am one of those quoted in this book. My name is David Mehus. The book is very good and captures a snapshot of some of us on good days, like when I was interviewed in In Pulaski TN over 15 years ago.
The bad days came later.
Any Stern rigid Ideology, either to the far left or far right results in disaster.
My children have never heard me say the "N" word but it seems at that time I was different.
