100% mostly because we've been studying Canada for the last week or so in Geography in school. Would make it a little bit harder if the province was highlighted and then you would have to name it.

racist? sounds more of a jab toward a nationality than a race
+2
level 77
Jan 3, 2014
Race is an artificial construct, same as nationality. Often the two things coincide and the difference is really pretty meaningless when it comes to things like personal bigotry. "American" is as much a "race" as German or Mexican. Which word would you prefer I use? "Prejudiced against a nationality" is a bit of a mouthful.
+1
level 44
Mar 23, 2014
Perhaps "xenophobia" is the most applicable? Dictionary definitions of xenophobia include: deep-rooted, irrational hatred towards foreigners (Oxford English Dictionary; OED), unreasonable fear or hatred of the unfamiliar (Webster's). I can find no reference for the mere ignorance of other cultures.
+1
level 44
Aug 15, 2014
Xenophobia implies foreigners being feared/hated on one's home soil. England's hatred of France is not xenophobia. Neither is American-bashing. But I wouldn't call it racism, which is usually a color issue at its basest. It's bigoted, and prejudicial. Does it need a prettier label?

Labrador, despite relatively famous, is sparsely populated, save for a few Inuit communities in the north and some towns in the south, (such as Happy Valley-Goose Bay). On the other hand, Newfoundland has a population of close to 500,000, so you would certainly be better off knowing Newfoundland.

If "PEI" is acceptable for Prince Edward Island, then BC definitely ought to be acceptable for British Columbia, since most Canadians say BC, whereas people don't say PEI nearly so much.

Looking back I find it sad that when I was in school in the 1960s we were tested several times on the Canadian provinces and their capitals, but we had only one brief lesson on the states and districts of Mexico. As a result I still remember all the Canadian provinces well, but very few of the Mexican states.
