Xenophobia, racism, and citizenship restriction in Period 6
After the world war, people began to change culturally.
Some challenged old assumptions about race,
class, gender and religion, often using
new technologies to spread reconfigured traditions.
The notion of human rights gained traction throughout the world. Increased interactions among diverse peoples sometimes led to the formation of new cultural identities, such as negritude. Increased cultural contacts attending globalization has also increased the tension between accepting foreign cultural influence and preserving the heritage culture. Immigration and race problems
in the U.S, immigration in South Africa,
the Holocaust, are a few examples.
Xenophobia was a major problem after World War I when returning soldiers found themselves competing for jobs and housing with foreigners.
From 1914 to today.

Race riots occurred then and still now. Whenever a person is/was injured or killed for their race it induced riots among the community of the same race until there was, commonly, judicial action or at least an apology.
The Immigration Act of 1924 (US) barred entry of 'aliens ineligible to citizenship', and the act excluded any Asian foreigners from immigration. This is an example of political action that was taken that could exhibit xenophobic tendencies. South Africa in the 1980s became a destination for about 350,000 Mozambicans fleeing the civil war in that country.
Xenophobia was heavily associated with a false sense of patriotism towards one's own country. Immigrants were treated poorly by people opposing it, and propaganda in places like Germany, Spain, and America would speak against immigrants.
Race riots affect the relationship between people of different races in negative way. This destabilizes a nation and its people, and encouraged racism and segregation, and the idea of certain races being superior over others.
Race riots began to be contained, around the 1970's, to poverty stricken areas that was mostly, sadly, populated by african americans. Riots also destroyed
Despite the continuing freedoms that black people got, they were still discriminated against. Since about the 1980 up to today, race riots primarily focused on the police force versus the black community, which built up both calling cops "Racist pigs" and calling black people "thugs".
Black people often had fewer economic opportunities, often being the one's in poverty and in jail more than whites.
Not much happened in the environment. What did happen was the building of walls and borders, especially in the United States, to keep out foreigners and encouraging a certain false 'sacredness' to protecting a country from 'aliens'.
Selective information in a phenomenon arguably derived from xenophobia that affects us today. Selectively choosing what information stays in and out of [our] schools' text books, and retelling of stories, is a cultural example. Nationalism was also commonly tied in the xenophobia.
Immigrants and migrant workers often work for much less, which changed how much people paid workers vs. how much the companies made. An increased flows of goods, services, and people across national borders have led to economic integration and interdependence among nation-states. This shift to world of blurred boundaries helped change the traditional notion of citizenship.
Race riots were the result of race relation tensions cause between the law and discrimination against POC. Racism, often in America, was heavily institutionalized. Racist laws such as the Jim Crow laws facilitated reason for riots.

A "LIFE" magazine cover from August 27th, 1965
It can be inferred this magazine is talking about the Watts 1965 riot, that included Arson and street war. This cover depicts a young black man cleaning up after we can assume to be damage from the riot. This shows the more negative impact of rioting, with damage to innocent bystanders, no matter which side they were on. This was one of the many that occurred during the 50's and 60's during the civil rights movement(s).
"[W]e National Socialists must hold unflinchingly to our aim in the foreign police, namely, to secure for the German people the land and soil to which they are entitled on this earth....If we speak of soil in Europe today, we can primarily have in mind only Russia and her vassal border states...."
Excerpt from Adolph Hitler's
This book, published 1935-1926, shows Hitler's insight into his rationality and reasoning into beginning the Holocaust. It demonstrated how Xenophobic thoughts like this weren't just "opinions" that could be ignored, but that could escalate into genocide. As time went on, xenophobia
reduced even more after the events of the Holocaust all around the world over the years. Acceptance of religion especially, in places
like Europe and the United States.
