Xenophobia: Apartheid

Xenophobia: Apartheid
Isn't xenophobia the same as apartheid? 
I am asking for what happened in the past is what is happening today.
We face the same things as our grandparents were facing in the past. 
We are just revolving around the same cycle of: abduction
                 Eviction       Victimisation
      Discrimination          Racism
                  Sexism      Retribution,
Question is, who will break this cycle?
Who will say no to xenophobia!
Africans let us all unite!
South Africans let us remember that before  we say that we are South Africans
We are Africans!!!
