Xenophobia in your country

I wanted to know how xenophobia is perceived in your home countries because in my country it is a severe problem in our society.

Personally I've traveled a lot & I've found some places were bigotry & nationalism are pretty much fixed in society like Israel, Peru, Spain (please notice I don't want to steriotype but that's how I experienced those places) but I've also found places that are much tolerable like Colombia & Brazil, they're nice to everyone.

I'm not proud to say though, that in Chile my homecountry, we are xenophobes by birth, our bigotry is famous for people from Peru, Bolivia, Argentina & Spain who happen to come here a lot.

Re: Xenophobia in your country

Agreed on Colombia, I'm sure there are issues but it seemed like everyone from all cultures and races got along.

As for the U.S., I think xenophobia is a worse problem than a lot of people who live in the U.S. think and it's less of a problem than people in other countries think, if that makes sense. I think Americans tend to try to ignore any problems and think we've moved past it which we clearly haven't. However, compared to most other European countries, I actually think the U.S. is more tolerant based on my experiences.

Re: Xenophobia in your country

Honestly I haven't really noticed much xenophobia here. I sometimes hear complaints about the "Iranian" convenience store owners and about illegal immigration (which was pretty bad back during the immigration protests in 2006).

Re: Xenophobia in your country

NZ people sometimes complain about the amount of Chinese fish and chip shop and dairy (convenience store) owners, but then NZ is fish and chips mad and go to the stores for smokes, so they're kind hypocritical .

The only thing I'd be kind of Xenophobic about would be Muslims trying to force Sharia law on the country, but apart from that I'm not particularly Xenophobic .

Re: Xenophobia in your country

In Spain South Americans are hated so much. Our socialist president (2004-2011) offered them jobs and now Spain is full of South Americans who steal our jobs Like shitty doctors who know nothing And in return for that those South Americans who were given the Spanish nationality then voted for him to be re-elected

Oh well I don't hate South Americans it would be pathetic but this situation is really a shame. Also the violence in Spanish streets has risen because now it's something very usual to find these



Fucking Zapatero fuck you, you've ruined this country even more!!!! If it wasn't for that president we wouldn't be as bad as we are. He's dumb and he named dumb ministers in order not to be eclipsed by intelligent people. Jesus

The first ever Spanish prime minister to actually respect South American nations and their independence and your bashing him, I guess you'd rather colonialists like Aznar (who encourages coups against democratically elected governments) and whatever right-winger is in power now.

In Ireland there is definatly xenophobia from certain stupid pieces of shit who think Polish and Eastern Europeans some how "took" their jobs. More people hate the Nigerians but I guess that is racism, not Xenophobia.

I often wonder what it is like to be stupid enough to be a xenophobe or a racist.

Re: Xenophobia in your country

There's a difference between respecting South Americans and bringing tons of them just to get re-elected And no I want something in the middle, I want UPyD which is a political party that is something similar to USA's Democrats. And everybody bashes him now by the way, he left the country in a shitty state, the way he and his force of dumbos managed the Crisis was laughable, now everyone hates him

Re: Xenophobia in your country

It depends. People usually love foreigners in Serbia, and they are thrilled when they meet some ( because they are a rare sight here ) while Albanian bakeries are being stoned like every month.

Re: Xenophobia in your country

Sammo He probably lives in a bubble & doesn't know that Spaniard migration to Chile has been going up like 100% in the last couple of years & that they are probably taking many chileans their jobs but I'm not going around saying they fucked this country up, even with that terrible accent & accept & welcome them in my country.

PS: I'm sure the reason many south americans migrate to Spain is because they have the nationality, I'm chilean, born & raised here, my grandmother is Spaniard so I could very well request the Spaniard nationality, I don't think I will though, my mom didn't.

Re: Xenophobia in your country

China is a racist society in itself, you know, they don't even like each other, you know let alone ... Blacks...

Whites that come here, are treated like king ... if you earned it...

I'am saying not all "Chinese" are like that.. I'am saying a great deal from the mainland are...






Everybody isn't equal...

If you are an asian ... who grew up in America or ... you know, third generation, ...in Britain or something like that ... it's not going to help you[in China]...

Re: Xenophobia in your country

I have a friend who lives in Chile because she moved there with her chilean husband, and she's told me she has ended up crying several times because of how bad people treat her when they hear she has an argentinian accent. And she's blonde an very easy on the eye, so she's probably getting the soft treatment.

I'm not sure about Argentina. Yeah, you have your xenophobes idiots like everywhere else in the world, but generally I'd say this is a very open society regarding people from other countries. People who get discriminated against are often victims of it because of their social background and economical status, and not really their nationality. I've lived in several places of Argentina and there are tons of people from all over South America saying how comfortable they feel here, specially in Buenos Aires.
