Many groups celebrate traditional Southern culture and the Civil War's dramatic conflict between the Union and the Confederacy. But some groups go further and embrace racist attitudes towards blacks and, in some cases, white separatism. Such groups are listed in this category.

The League of the South, founded in 1994 and counting some 9,000 members by 2001, is at the center of the racist neo-Confederate movement. Calling once again for Southern secession, the League's leaders say minorities are destroying the "Anglo-Celtic" (white) culture of the South. They oppose most non-white immigration and all interracial marriages. Founder Michael Hill, a former college professor, has called blacks "a deadly and compliant underclass" and has embraced well-known white supremacists such as North Carolina attorney Kirk Lyons. The total number of groups counted in 2001 was 124.
