Blacks, Hispanics and Asians, usually band together in "neighborhoods", because of their habits, cultures and language.....exactly as "white nationalists" are described as doing. Surrounding themselves with same race and "like thinking" people.
Are you racist if you are proud to be white ? Or have only white friends ? Belong to groups or clubs with only white members ? Surround yourself with "white" people ?
This is what the blacks, Hispanic and Asian people do !
Are "white nationalists" the same as "white supremacists" ?
I think when President Trump said there were some good people on both sides (in Charlottesville Va.) he could be referring to those who were there to protest the removal of the Lee statue and/or changing the park name. They were lumped in with the white nationalists by association and were non-violent, unlike ANTIFA and BLM who came uninvited, un-permitted with masked faces and armed.
The media seems intent on focusing on the white nationalists, hardly mentioning antifa and blm that they don't seem to report on anything but Trump and the White Nationalists.
I wasn't sure what "white nationalists" were so I looked up on Wikipedia
I don't always agree or like "Wikipedia" but for this article it will suffice. Read definition below.

White separatism and white supremacy are subgroups of white nationalism. Separatists seek a white-only state; supremacists believe that white people are superior to nonwhites, taking ideas from social Darwinism and Nazism. Both subgroups generally avoid the term supremacy because it has negative connotations.
Critics argue that the term "white nationalism" and ideas such as white pride exist solely to provide a sanitized public face for white supremacy, and that most white nationalist groups promote racial violence.
