A to Z Challenge Poetry

X is for Xenophobia #atozchallenge

There once lived a man with a fear of other races
He hated people of different colours and faces
‘They’re not like me
Great, they’ll never be’
But his ignorance cost him jobs at many places

(c) Sanch @ Living my Imperfect Life

Note: Xenophobia is the fear of foreigners or the fear of strangers. We also use it as a term for racism.

    I know quite a few people like him who judge people basis their race and color. I think they should get a life. Really.

    Racists and xenophobia can be found around the world. Sad but true!

    Xenophobia is the favourite topic of the day, we need to talk about it and create awareness about the irrational fear. Lovely post once again.

    Yep I can imagine his attitude would’ve cost him many jobs. Another enjoyable one.

    Great post there. Though I just read the same word on Shilpa’s blog, the narration sets you both apart.

    I imagine Hitler and white supremacists like the Klu Klux Klan fit this bill!
