Anti Xenophobia by chiberia Anti Xenophobia by chiberia
Just Because.



---

I think dA was missing a stamp like this. Doesn't matter where you are, or who you are, your sexual orientation, what you believe in, if you're comunist or consumist (jk) or what the television says, intolerance sucks. You are cool the way you are if you let the others be what they want.

The world deserves more respect.

You may use and spread this stamp around, the idea is to put this wherever there is to be.




...

Credits for :iconvoduntoivoa: for the base. And I guess credits for everyone that agrees with this stamp! :heart:





//////

[EDIT] Because there were doubts, I think I should post it here what the hell I'm talking about.

Quoting here a good definition: "hatred or fear of foreigners or strangers or of their politics or culture"

I created this more for the popular (and the most used) meaning of the word. We call xenophobia acts of disrespect and violence against foreign people or those who doesn't share the same culture or politic views as the one commiting this act.

The massacre in Norway in the ending of July (2011), nazism, the eugenics, the persecution jewish people suffered among history, the japanese movement to remove imigrants, skin-heads, etc are all examples of this sort of intolerance. It is commonly said that the extreme-right policy (and politics) are xenophobic, but any kind of extreme politic views that doesn't respect and/or try to impose this opinion among the others are equally xenophobic.

We can also apply this term for pre-determined concepts someone form about another person based on the stereotype of it's country or culture. Such as 'All the arabics are terrorists"

Intolerance will be the downfall of this civilized world. Why do people see, say, a Christian like myself(or any religious person), and decide that that they're brainwashed, or they say that all Muslims are terrorists, or all Caucasians are racist? It's disgusting and only makes them look like jerks and morons.

I encountered a russophobic Polish guy just recently, and I'm a native Russian. He asked me if I'm like the president of my country and spewed bullshit that "the USSR attacked Germany". I tried to tell him that he was wrong, but it was worthless, so in the end I just swore at him in Caps Lock and blocked him. Now he wrote a journal asking why I blocked him. WHAT A RETARD.

I know what I did is stupid and pointless, but I have no regrets.

*reads discription* wow, people think all Arabic people are terrorists... That's just sad and offensive. If one of my friends said this I would probably slap them. Because not only did they insult me, they insulted half my family and a lot of other people too. It's sad how cruel some people can be.

From what I have noticed so far on how intolerance grows through society, I have noticed that this sort of behavior is quite an automatic response; it's something that occurs faster (to forward the same mecanism, culture, behavior) rather than break out of it. The thing I judge the most important is to work your way to stop it. It's halfway through if you already realize you feel like doing the same. The job now is to not recriate (sorry for the oh-so-late response, I've been quite inactive on dA)

respeito é uma coisa intrínseca ao ser humano, não depende de nada, uma vez que é o ponto básico para a vida em sociedade. A ideia de que respeito se é conquistado permite uma subjetividade na seleção de maneira a favorecer quaisquer preconceitos- justificando quem é digno de respeito por um ou outro comportamento, você consegue facilmente desmoralizar alguém por não ser de uma religião x, ou de uma raça y ou de uma inclinação política z. Caráter é algo que depende dos valores de cada pessoa, há quem julgue o caráter pelo tamanho da saia de uma mulher, e portanto, mostra-se como ineficiente como determinante de "merecedor de respeito ou não". Por isso, digo que respeito não tem a ver com caráter (:

I can't stand it.

Over half of my friends are Brazilian, and when I met them they treated me with so much love and respect even though I couldn't speak their language, and I'm from the UK.

Where I live, even if the foreigner is friendly, speaks perfect english, and follows ALL the customs and culture of our country, they will still get bashed merely for being from another country.

The ironic thing is that one of my Brazilian friends is actually xenophobic, yet even he accepted me somehow, and people in the UK wouldn't.

I thinks that here in Brazil (yay, i'm Brazilian too, lolwut), something that helped a lot to decrease the economy, is that the country was built with imigrations. It's not a "pure" country, there is no such thing as a common characterist on every Brazilian. Yet, I've recently come to realize that Brazil's pretty receptive with tourists, but not with imigrants. And it never was, since Italians, Germains, Japanese, Korean, Bolivian. Recently we're having a strong flux of imigration coming from neighbour countries in South America and I am seeing how prejudicious people are with them and realized how there has always been this marginalization upon the imigrants, until they get to stablish themselves and become a rising colony.
Except for Italians, I believe, since they have merged easily with Portuguese and the Brazilian people from the begining of their arrival in Brazil, we have plenty of closed Colonies, we say. Because of the amount of prejudice, the lack of conection between cultures and languages, imigrants has always had to shut themselves in neighbourhoods in which there were mainly people with the same origin, and kept themselves yet somewhat closed in these neighbourhoods and social groups until today.

So, yes, I think Brazil isn't the most xenophobic country, but mainly to "important people". We are very kind to europeans, americans, australians, ... But with people that are asking for our help and support, we are pretty arrogant D:

I don't study economics, or social relations, but I would love to make a study around the world about xenophobia. It's such a badly explored theme and yet so fixed in our routines. :/

The UK is a very culuturally and ethinically diverse country, we have a lot of immigrants here and if you walk down the high street of London you'll probably hear around 30 different languages. :D Yet despite this, the people who live here still seem to be very bitter with those from another country. I can understand in some cases, when they don't speak a word of English it can be very frustrating, but with those who aren't doing any harm whatsoever I fail to understand why we automatically reject them. :/

I had no idea Brazil was like that o_o All I knew was that everybody I spoke to was super friendly and accepting, unlike we British who probably wouldn't even give a foreigner a chance.

I have heard a lot of the UK, but have never gone out of the country, yet. I have always heard people doing compliments considering that, at least in London, people don't misjudge others among what they are dressing, which is something amazing for me, a dream mostly xD

and yeah, it took some time for me to realize so, but the history of Brazil can explain this really well. I live in São Paulo, the biggest city of the country, a cosmopolitan place, still I can find prejudice when I think it wasn't possible... I think the best way to describe people here is hipocrisy, everybody and I wont be excluding myself out of it, because we look at the appearence. I've read the Situation of The Working Class from Engels to school recently and he described this marginalization that happened to Irish in England, one of the paperworks we had to do was relating the content of the book with the Brazilian reality, I got surprised with how many similarities there are, specially when it comes to prejudice and imigration. Still, when Brazilian emigrate and feel harmed by the local society somehow, they complain as if they have never done it with someone else! :/

"people don't misjudge others among what they are dressing"
Where I live (Nottinghamshire in the UK... The place where Sherwood Forest is, Robin Hood etc. if you've heard of it) you're constantly judged from what you're wearing or look like, it's terrible. e_e Everyone is really cruel and judgemental and that's why I prefer to seek friendships online from now on, and end up finding all of my Brazilian friends.

On the plus side, they're teaching me Portuguese, so I get new language skills :dummy:

No matter how hypocritical Brazil really is, all the average citizens I've spoken to were really friendly and as a result I love the country! I'm really hoping to visit there next year to finally be with all of my friends. I have the money, it's just if I'd be able to handle it working around exams etc. :love: The place they live (Ribeirao Preto, if you've heard of it?) isn't a tourist place at all, so I'd have to know at least a bit of the language.

yes, Ribeirão Preto is near to where I live xD well, it's in the same state, but I'm very surprised about what you've told me, I have never heard of such o:

and I'm glad you didn1t suffered any kind of harassment here! I wish it could always be like this D: And I'm cheering for you to learn portuguese, it's not the easiest language but it's rather beautiful : D

Eccetra Featured By Owner May 6, 2012  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Woow, you're the first Brazilian I've spoken to who actually finds the language beautiful! :D Everyone I've spoken to was like "Why do you want to learn portuguese? It's soo hard and English is tons better D:" but to me it sounds so lovely *_*

:iconchiberia:
chiberia Featured By Owner May 7, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
I think many people think so because of the cultural influence xD. Indeed english is more useful and easy to learn, but I have been flirting with latin languages since always. My grandparent was Hungarian and spoke fluently nine languages, I wish I'd hit this mark someday xD.

The thing about Portuguese, maybe because I like to write and to use synesthesia, is the amount of adjectives and sounds and figures of speech, that can create tons of atmospheres, it is very poetic and a part of its beauty is its complication. Sometimes I take a look at the poem or prose as a piece of visual art before actually reading it.

Besides Portuguese, languages that really enchantes me are Hungarian, Romainian, French, Italian and Danish xD


If you're willing to learn portuguese and brazilian literature, from begining, I'd suggest Monteiro Lobato, his works for children as sitio do Pica-pau Amarelo are somewhat easy to read (when it comes to vocabulary) and yet his stories are so rich and fun. For poetry, Vinicius de Moraes and Cecilia Meireles, one novelist I really like is Jorge Amado, but as he usually talks about rough realities, his writing is full of oral language, so it's not that good to use for learning portuguese. And maybe Machado de Assis, I don't find his vocabulary too hard, but his writing is deep and controverse, he's a genius actually xD, so it's hard to interpretate, he's considered one of the greatest Brazilian writers.*tripping*

I'm not xenophobic, but I feel sorry for people who are labeled as such when they defend their native culture. What do you think about people like that?
Reply
:iconchiberia:
chiberia Featured By Owner Mar 28, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
Well, it depends. How are defending their culture? Are they 'bashing' anyone that is willing to mix or to add elements or an entire culture to their education or culture? If they are, or even if they don't put it in practice but forbid in some way or even dislikes this possibility in a strong way, they are being xenophobic. Or, when they feel discomfortable if some "outsider" is willing to learn their culture and the "insiders" of this culture doesn't approve.

I'm not 100% in favor of globalization, and I don't think that one culture should mix with the other to the point of substitute the original culture. But how does happen this "defending of the native culture"? It it isn't denying access to outsiders to incorporate or know about this culture and deny access to insiders to learn something else, I don't see much tolerance, that's what I mean

Then I think it's further than xenophobia or not, since it envolves other subjects such as economics and politics independence and not only culture blending or so.

Xenophobia angers me to no end. It's not someone's fault if they're a foreigner, and if he/she comes to a different country to learn about that culture, or to thrive on his/her own, more power to them.
