Is that like racism?

Not exactly. It’s dislike of people from other countries.

Oh, ok. Why would you not like someone from another country? Is that like the people who are mad at the illegal aliens from Mexico coming to the USA, is that xenophobia? Because that really upsets me.

Here the word is used for people who don’t like migrants.

It is NOT better to be a xenophobe than a xenophiliac. A xenophiliac is a lover of people from other countries and cultures. @seksoempirico

So like, if you’re American and you hate Italians, that’s xenophobic.

That would be awful. I’m glad I was raised in a diverse area and don’t dislike anyone.
