Xenophobes

“He took one look at me. He knew I was different, didn’t speak the same
language as him, nor ate his food. He knew I worked hard to get where I
am but still…am on his land. He can do anything he wants. It’s his land and
am just a visitor”.

It starts innocently enough. You do or say something about someone and the next thing you know you’ve developed a deep hatred for a fellow human being based on their geographical position.
