No. Fear is not discrimination, per se.

No I don't belive they are the same, only that they are both somthing that is not helpful to humans in general.

In my opinion, no they are not the same.
Though the difference is close.
16 yrs ago, 8 mos ago - Tuesday 8/23/05 - 3:37:15 PM EST (GMT-5)
could
16 yrs ago, 8 mos ago - Tuesday 8/23/05 - 6:04:54 PM EST (GMT-5)
i dunno
16 yrs ago, 8 mos ago - Wednesday 8/24/05 - 2:23:01 AM EST (GMT-5)
they go hand in hand
16 yrs ago, 8 mos ago - Wednesday 8/24/05 - 2:27:34 AM EST (GMT-5)
being uncomfortable around someone that probably doesn't speak a word of your language and has a totally alien culture goes hand in hand with hating your next door neighbour because of skin colour only?

I think that "xenophobia" refers less to fear of foreign people and things (I doubt that a xenophobic would shudder with terror when they see a Frenchman), and more to hatred.

In my experience, xenophobia and racism often go together, but they aren't the same.

I dont even know what that is.
16 yrs ago, 8 mos ago - Friday 8/26/05 - 8:21:19 AM EST (GMT-5)
they aren't the same

This question has popped up every time I try and do the questions, even twice in the one "session" AGHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!
16 yrs ago, 8 mos ago - Friday 8/26/05 - 5:01:19 PM EST (GMT-5)
I think so. Hatred is hatred, and it is all interconnected.
16 yrs ago, 8 mos ago - Friday 8/26/05 - 7:25:52 PM EST (GMT-5)
yes it's fear of foreigners. more like a belief in racial superiority or a belief that one race should rule all of the believed inferior races.

It's only been defined three times on the thread already.

I think both are prejudices that don't serve any good purpose.

xenophobia dosent = racism cause it makes u fearful of foreners; racism makes u belive urself superior. they could overlap, but they don't have to by definition.

WHAAT?
16 yrs ago, 8 mos ago - Wednesday 9/21/05 - 8:19:14 AM EST (GMT-5)
i dont think they're the same, but they're close

and i dont like the French

They intersect; I wouldn't say they are inherently synonymous in all cases, though.

There are technically only THREE different RACES in our world, while there are numerous ethnicities and cultures. These two things differ greatly on the technical level, but in that they both deal with the idea of hating people that are different than you based solely on where they come from, they are similar. I would never call them equal, however, just similar.

Both are ignorant and both are hateful - both are wrong!
