I've visited sundown towns, but even those are losing their racial composition. Vidor, Texas for instance is now only 91% white. Harrison, Arkansas is 95% white, and Petal, Mississippi is only 95% white. Vidor has a wonderful Dairy Queen, by the way. When I was driving through Texas, I stopped there for an Oreo Blizzard and enjoyed he taste. (this isn't relevant, but I'm a conversational person. Do you like Blizzards? ^_^)
They're not sundown towns anymore, I'm afraid. The government wouldn't declare anything about these lands at all. Private contractors will decide if they want their community to be all-white or all-bisexual or whatever they so choose.
There is actually an all-white private school backed by the Council of Conservative Citizens of Mississippi. It's called Carrollton Academy and was able to bypass any worries about race by enrolling one Asian student. 406/407 students are white at that school. (:
Any racial community would need to be private. We don't want the government segregating anyone. We're all about free will here.
