Afrophobia is a perceived fear of the cultures and peoples of Africa, as well as the African diaspora [1]


Primarily a cultural phenomenon, it pertains to the various traditions and peoples of Africa, irrespective of racial origin.[1] As such, Afrophobia is distinct from the historical racial phenomenon negrophobia, which is a contempt for negro peoples specifically.[2] The opposite of Afrophobia is Afrophilia, which is a love for all things pertaining to Africa.[1]
