Xenophobia – Wish we could all say….

I have said to some that were clearly Xenophobic –

“I want to like you. You have no reason to dislike me personally.

You don’t know me. Your opinions have been learned without me in them.

Let’s talk about what we have in common in humankind.”


It worked about half the time. That was a good start I thought, and still do.

It is painless to listen if the other asks to be heard.
