Microblog Mondays: Xenophobia

Microblog Mondays: Xenophobia

As the years pass by, it seems as though we are becoming more and more intolerant of each other. Discrimination based on caste, creed, sex, religion and more is the order of the day in many societies across the planet. If we know that the individual is from a particular place and is of a particular caste or religion, more often than not we tend to form a negative bias in our minds even before talking to that individual.

Even though we are moving forwards in leaps and bounds in terms of technological developments, we are surely moving backwards when it comes to people to people contact. Xenophobia masquerading as nationalism is translating into verbal violence on social media and physical violence on the streets.

It’s just saddening that in this garb of nationalism, even after thousands of years of human evolution, we are still at war amongst each other.

    It seems like the opposite of what SHOULD be happening as the Internet draws everyone together. But there is so much xenophobia.

      True Mel, instead of coming closer, we all seem to be going further and further apart.
