It is an evolutionary throwback. The instinct of xenophobia comes from our old brain, the one we evolved to have over a million years ago. It is also the same brain that is responsible for anger and anxiety. While these three things were important in hunter gatherer times we have no need for them now. We must use our rational new brain to overcome unnecessary instincts in order to prosper as a civilisation.

Xenophobia is a natural instinct. Evolution gave us xenophobia to protect us form outside threats. Primates and other members of the animal kingdom also show this trait proving it isn’t a learned habit.

Generalisations are never true. No group of people is always this and always that. This thinking is based on stereotypes and confirmation bias and is illogical thinking.

Divide society. National barriers, religion and cultures all cause an us and them mentality. Technology has brought us closer together meaning we need more inclusive mentalities then divisive ones. If our world was ever attacked the enemy would not need to divide and conquer as we have already done that ourselves.

There is no scientific evidence to support behavioral, cultural or inherent qualities being linked to a person’s race. The genetic differences between races is so minute as to not be important at all.

There are some cultures that are objectively superior to others. We all have certain values that we hold in high regard and for whatever reasons certain cultures have adopted customs and ‘laws’ that don’t coincide with these values. In my opinion the western culture that is lead by Caucasian people, even though it isn’t perfect, is the best culture for helping as many people as possible. This ideology stems from northern and western Europeans.

Safety first. While acceptance and tolerance are important safety and survival are always the first priority. It times of strife us vs them group mentalities form and if you have shunned your own group and welcomed another you are going to find enemies on all sides.
