Now do not let yourself be confused by this map. The coloring each country received represents the largest single ethnic group in the country. It does not mean, however, that the group is the majority of the population. Still it could be fun to speculate what would a balkanized United States look like if it was divided along ethnic lines...
The map above was made by Ben Carnehl. Is it plausible? Probably not, though there have been ethnic-centric secessionist groups in American history like the Republic of Lakotah, the Raza Unida Party, Voz de Aztlan and the Republic of New Afrika. The map does represent the great imagination an alternate historian can possess. Do you have your own maps showing a balkanized North America? Send them to firstname.lastname@example.org and I will post the best on this blog.
