Stop xenophobia
Xenophobia is the fear of that which is perceived to be strange or foreign. This curation collection also includes all the 'isms' in the world; racism, sexism, etc. Including homophobia. When are people going to realise that this behaviour is not right. Please stop it now and be inclusive in your world views. Reduce the hate in the world and stop all forms of violence against people.

America once turned its back on Anne Frank - nothing has changed

America once turned its back on Anne Frank - nothing has changed | Stop xenophobia | Scoop.it
I’ve just visited the hiding place of some troublesome refugees who should make Donald Trump very angry. It’s not the first time I’ve called at the little house on the old canal, but you only have to glance at the family’s papers to see how they fall under Trump’s anti-immigrant rhetoric. They fled a dangerous country full of extremists– a nation which threatened its own neighbours – and they sought their first new home for “economic reasons”. Worse still, they even tried to enter the United States.

What Does Donald Trump's Election Say About America?

What Does Donald Trump's Election Say About America? | Stop xenophobia | Scoop.it
This is who we are. Those words often come to me when I see the ugly things in life now. When the first details about Tamir Rice’s death at the hands of police officers came to me on Twitter, they were a scream in the dark. When people questioned with straight faces if our president was even born in America, they echoed about my ears. When the Department of Justice report revealed that Ferguson, Missouri, was a racial kleptocracy, they were a whisper in the wind.

When a man who was accused of multiple sexual assaults, was endorsed by the Ku Klux Klan, had characterized Mexican immigrants as “rapists,” and has promoted stop and frisk as a national campaign of “law and order” was elected president, they boomed like thunder.

Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, November 22, 4:59 PM
I did not teach about racism in a direct way. I used projects that explored racism and how we strive to overcome various -isms. For example, I had students select a person they considered a hero to their community. Quite often, this led to students choosing Martin Luther King, Nelson Mandela, Rosa Parks, Jackie Robinson, Willie O'Ree (he broke the colour barrier in hockey), etc. It was terrific to see how students discovered what the sacrifices made to live in an inclusive world.
