Racial nationalism is an ideology that advocates a racial definition of national identity. Racial nationalism seeks to preserve "racial purity" of a nation through policies such as banning race mixing and the immigration of other races. In order to create a justification for such policies, racial nationalism often promotes eugenics, and advocates political and legislative solutions based on eugenic and other racial theories.
Racial nationalism should not be confused with ethnic nationalism. A transitional form between racial and ethnic nationalism is also known as Völkisch nationalism.
