History

Comes from the Greek words:

“xenos” which refers/means foreign, stranger.

“phobos” which generally translates into meaning fear.

Practice

The more politically correct term to denote a racist.

One who is xenophobic, is one who dislikes intensely or fears greatly, someone simply due to them being foreign or/and different.

This applies to language, culture, as well as skin colors, religion, or anything, that makes them different, in the eyes of the beholder.

Practice (Associated Acts):

A sanitized word, for those who oppose cultural exchanges, or inter mingling of races.

Used at times for those who oppose various Trade Accords, in economic connotation.

Noteworthy:

The dislike or fear, is not based on actual knowledge of the foreign or different party.

It is based on a perception, that is irrational, without merit.
