You don't fight racism with more racism. That's just being racist.

Immigration is a political issue, that most refused to discuss for a long time for fear of being branded racist. The right wing racists were the only ones willing to talk about it, this helped the rise of the right.

Immigration procedure and xenophobia is global and not limited to just "white" countries

The problem is that there's an easy way to deal with immigration and refugees the powers that be never want to discuss. All you have to do is stop bombing the hell out of their countries, stealing and destroying their livelihoods, and empowering and arming violent groups. Most people would prefer to live in their homeland if not for the hardships and exploitation caused by western policies and imperialism.

The left (and to some extent the libertarian right) has been saying this for a long time, but it's not like we get any mainstream media exposure. The liberal media has gone out of their way to empower supremacist groups and xenophobia.
