Racism is a cultural bias pertaining to the belief that there is a distinct human race and that one race is superior to another. Developed by Europeans to justify their enslavement of the ‘Others’, they have maintained racial tendencies and attempts to dehumanize colored people as ‘savage’ and uncivilized to support their inflicted maltreatment of them. Racism is real. Though many strides have been made in efforts to exact the devastation imposed on colored peoples’ dignity and rights to liberty, communal relations remain stained. Just as we live in a world where even visas have varying values, discrimination has become an undeniable reality – hindrances to playful world traveling.

Xenophobia is defined as deep-rooted, hatred towards foreigners. Webster defines xenophobia as fear or hatred of the unfamiliar. It is the dislike of migrants by the nationals of the host country.

Nigerians are rightly outraged by the xenophobic attacks by some South African against Africans from other parts of the continent. The attacks bring shame to the country of Nelson Mandela. In condemning the attacks, there should not be the mistakenly belief that all South Africans are xenophobic – the xenophobes are the minority. It is also justifiable for anyone to criticise the South African government for not doing enough to stem the tide of xenophobic attacks that first started in 2008 because if it had, xenophobic attacks will not be reoccurring. It will also be right to be critical of the South African media for their reportage of crimes involving Africans from other African countries that profiled such criminals by nationalities.
The severity of political tensions between the United Malays National Organization (UMNO) and the People’s Action Party (PAP) reached its peak when Singapore was evicted from the Malaysian Federation on 9 August 1965 to prevent further racial conflict. Despite the separation, racial tensions were still running high which created a damaging social division amongst the four different races in Singapore. Such a social stratification posed a serious concern for the leaders of Singapore, as Singapore, being a multi racial society, was very vulnerable and prone to more potential racial conflicts. Since Singapore’s only resource is its manpower, it is vital that its citizens are able to work and coexist in harmony in order for the country to prosper and grow.
