I don't agree. Xenophobia is a too unfortunate and serious subject to laugh 
with it: we can't say that galaga is xenophobic, because it doesn't harm 
anyone (supposing that E.T. exist, they should laugh at our vision of 
them!). It's just a game! Dangerous game are hooligans simulation for 
example. And I'm happy that such games don't exist in Debian. So I can 
repeat that there are fortunately, and thanks to the large and democratic 
decisional structure of Debian, no xenophobic packages in it.
