Sinophobia: The Fear of China

Sinophobia is the abnormal and persistent fear of China, Chinese people or Chinese culture.  This phobia may result because of a strong dislike of China, the people or the culture.  This could be the result of racism.  Only those who have Sinophobia know what may have caused it.
A phobia is a strong, persistent fear of situations, objects, activities or persons.  The main symptom is an excessive and unreasonable desire to avoid the feared subject. Other phobia symptoms include shortness of breath, irregular heartbeat, sweating, nausea, and an overall feeling of dread.  Phobias are the most common form of anxiety disorders.
