Migration, Discrimination, Xenophobia and Racism in 21 St Century Africa: Implications for New Socio-Economic Consciousness in the Diaspora

Shaib Emmanuel Oluwatobi

Abstract: Migration is the movement of an individual, family or large groups from one geographical region to another with the intention of either settling temporary or permanently. Most people may decide to relocate from one place to another due to forced displacement as a result of natural catastrophe or personal reasons. However, there have been numerous cases of discrimination, xenophobic attacks and racism by the citizens against the foreigners as a result of hatred towards them which vary from one country to another. Based on this assertion, this study examined the socio-economic effects of xenophobic violence on black migrants in Africa diaspora as a result of the migrants investing their resources back in their native countries so as to increase the Gross National Products due to an improvement in the Net Foreign Investment which will thereby reduce the host countrys Gross Domestic Products because the foreigners are being discouraged to invest in the country. Above all, as far as people wont put a stop to migrate from one place to another, the way forward is for the citizens and foreigners to have an equal right and dignity and this must be respected irrespective of the race, tribe, religion or socio-cultural differences.
