xenophobia: fear and hatred of strangers or foreigners or of anything that is strange or foreign
going back thousands of years there is an aspect of human understanding that allows us to realize, that there is only one human species on Earth, regardless of where national boarders are drawn, or genetic variations are defined as race
I value human accomplishment and achievement no matter where it originates and thrives. If one culture is better at making vehicles or mass producing electronics, or creating new music or other artforms, or advancing technology that allows us to better understand the nature of our lives, the world we live in, and the universe itself, then I will be cheering them on and supporting them 100%.
If you follow this far, you can take it one step further: there is only one life form on Earth. Just as our bodies are made up of individual cells, some that are connected directly together, and some that are transported freely about in our blood stream, life on Earth is comprised of individuals that together form the entirety of DNA life on the planet.
The life that is me, built with in-animate atoms and elements, is the same life in all living things: DNA.
We understand the science behind it today. When a cell divides the DNA un-winds into two halves, and the atoms from each half are duplicated. What was one DNA cell becomes two, but each is half of the original, so there is no new life, there is no different life, there is no separate life - it is the same life expanding beyond physical contact. If the original cell was named Oscar, which of the two cells after the divide is now Oscar? They both are.
People realized this thousands of years ago before the science was understood, and they understood it perfectly. There is only one Life on Earth.
The idea that a brain cell would look at a toe-nail cell and think it was better than the other - is absurd.
The idea that a person in one part of the Earth would shun the production or technology of the people in another another part of the Earth is equally absurd.
