This video explains Xenophobia and incidents that occur because of it. It's important to not be prejudice or discriminatory towards other people. Although people may be different from you, that doesn't give you the right to treat them badly.
Although this picture can be taken in two different ways, I interpret it as saying that racism is something that has rooted itself in American history. We can't change that but we can however improve how we react to other people. Baseball is America's pastime just like racism.
Sam Cooke was a singer and songwriter in the mid 1900s. His song "A Change is Gonna Come" was written to support the Civil Rights Movement. Cooke was shot and killed in 1964 by a motel owner who claimed he was raping a young white girl. This just shows how bad racism was.
Racism is deeply embedded in our culture. Slavery of African people, ethnic cleansing of Native Americans and colonialist imperialism are seeds that intertwine to create racism that still has impacts. People used to take people from other countries and put them in cages and enclosures. People would pay to see them and look at them because they were different from them. They were also treated like animals.
During World War II most people think of the Holocaust and that the Nazi Germans were the bad people. However, in the United States, Japanese Americans were being discriminated against. They were sent to internment camps and weren't allowed to leave except for work. There were barbed wire fences and guards in watch towers. It might as well have been called a concentration camp. America did this because we had an irrational fear of the Japanese Americans because of Pearl Harbor, so we decided it would be better to lock them all up instead.
In World War II, Adolf Hitler, the leader of Germany, started persecuting Jews. He thought they were evil and wanted a perfect Aryan race; people who have blonde hair and blue eyes. He sent the Jews to labor camps and then into extermination camps. This process of ethnic cleansing lasted for over 5 years. Hitler acted this way because he had an intense and an irrational dislike of the Jews. Therefore the Holocaust has become a well known xenophobic event in history.
