There are many cases of xenophobia in africa.What can you say about this ?
ILL_logic

Con

Dictionary definitions of xenophobia include: deep-rooted, irrational hatred towards foreigners (Oxford English Dictionary; OED), unreasonable fear or hatred of the unfamiliar http://en.wikipedia.org...

what do i say about this ? i say that xenophobia can be found anywhere in the world and has nothing to do with africans being able to help themselves

Reasons for voting decision: Con provided a (lawful) semantics argument that was never contested, and the argument itself was enough to win the debate. Conduct to Con for Pro's forfeit. Con's sources were unconventional, yet certainly relevant. The pictures may not be of Africans, but this was never refuted.
