My vocabulary is failing me

When you have negative biases against a race, that's racism. Obviously. Against a gender, it's sexism. Okay.
What's it called when it's against a specific nationality (which isn't comprised of a single race)? Or other kind of grouping of people? "Bookclubbers are all illiterate morons"

This was inspired by a post last night but definitely not directed at anyone.  I just realized I couldn't think of the word for it. Then this morning one of my idiot neighbors was ranting about the French.
