The opposite of xenophobia, but in Mexican Spanish?

Mexicofilter: I overheard a bit of Mexican slang a while back, and I'm trying to recall it. The word I'm looking for basically means "preference for North American and European trends/culture/identity/technology and hostility/fear of/towards things from Mexico". Of course, it ends in "ismo". Any ideas?

That's it! Malinchismo!

In context:

Y falta agregar los "arreglos en lo oscurito", El PRIANRD, el malinchismo recalcitrante, los noticieros chafas y la selección nacional.

Malinchismo is named after La Malinche.
