Is this an example of xenophobia? | Yahoo Answers
Can you think of any example of xenophobia in history
The only example of xenophobia I encountered was of this nature, and it was indirect. When I first began visiting the Chinese lady who is now my wife, she told me that the neighbours had spat at her on the staircase, and called the police to investigate her. Clearly no-one had told them that the laws about litong waiguo (having illicit relations with foreign countries) were no longer in operation.
Examples of Xenophobia from Various Parts of the World
Well, yeah. America is superior to France. We have more freedoms. We are wealthier. We are more powerful. Dumber? No. America leads the world in technology. And as for xenophobic, we do not have a Ministery of Culture whose main job is to try to keep French culture and the French language 'pure'. Now that, mon ami, is an example of xenophobia. And your Ministery of Culture is gonna be working overtime on that Muslim time bomb that's ticking away. Good luck. No on second thought, get fucked!
Planted within this sermon was a seed of hubris that would sprout occasional xenophobic outbreaks throughout the remainder of United States’ history. The current clamoring to “secure the border” by conservative groups within the United States represents only the latest of examples of xenophobia in America.The church is expected to be prophetic at all times. Unfortunately, in the post Beyers Naudé era, the church’s prophetic voice has been silent. For instance, during the 2008 xenophobic violence in South Africa, the voice of the church was not heard in the way it used to speak during such incidents in the time of Beyers Naudé. During the post Beyers Naudé’s ministry period, apart from the aforementioned example of xenophobia, many incidents have continued to happen, which have challenged the prophetic role of the church. Examples of these are the general decline in morals, manifesting itself in high levels of rape, torturous criminal activities and corruption, predominantly in government. The church should therefore be in a position to minister to all sectors of society including the state.
