What is the word for white racism against different white people?

Like when a white person does not like white people from another country because they're not their type of white or because of physical differences.

I heard the term a lot time ago when a white person was speaking ill of the stature, body hair, and hair of Irish men. 

Another example is a white person not liking eg the white French because of the physical differences between the white person and the white French. I saw a blonde white person tell another white person (brunette) that they were not white (although my eyes were not deceiving me and that person was indeed as white as can be). The way the white person said it to the other white person was very "matter of fact" and full of disdain.

    Tribalism can mean discriminatory behavior or attitudes, based on loyalty to one's social group. And yes racism and xenophobia.

    Also, Sectarianism- a form of prejudice, discrimination, or hatred arising from attaching relations of inferiority and superiority to differences between subdivisions within a group. Common examples are denominations of a religion, ethnic identity, class, or region for citizens of a state and factions of a political movement.

    To name a few.

    All these prejudices are stupid. Many times they can't get over cultural differences or get over past conflicts.

    "Invert bigotry" is the thing that a white individual may use to depict a conviction that any social or financial increases by Black individuals some way or another subvert the white insight. That by declining to stay lethargic while racial shamefulness actually characterizes our nation, Black individuals' choice not to conform to those racially shifty shows is equivalent to the bigotry practiced by white individuals for many years.
