About That Fear of Black Europe

Racism in Europe is on the rise, according to CNBC. “The notion of being overwhelmed by an 'other' who threatens one’s distinct way of life is an aspect of political paranoia that has long existed. The ‘Black Europe’ fear is an interesting rhetorical trope but is more of a linguistic cue for foreigners writ large, in my opinion," said political scientist Peter V. Rajsingh.  (Photo: JUSTIN TALLIS/AFP/GettyImages)
