How is your suggestion different from the Spanish Inquisition's liberal offer to Jews and Muslims to convert to Christianity? (or leave).

Because I wouldn't force that choice, nor would I take away the rights from anyone who currently has them.

the Sharia law which defines non-Muslims as low-class, right-less, residents?

Because they would have rights, just as resident aliens in the US have rights.

How is it different from denying blacks in America their civil rights?

Because I wouldn't change the citizenship rights of any current citizens, and also because anyone can convert to Judaism, but a black couldn't convert to a white.
