this is what post brexit britain looks like, we have given in to xenophobia and racism, and it’s terrifying
this is why it irritates the hell out of me when I see people saying “it wasn’t about racism!” okay, maybe not everyone who voted out did it for that reason – most seem to be regretting it now they see and understand the consequences – but the result is encouraging the racists who did vote out for racist reasons to show their true colours.
And kindly everyone stop spreading the lie that “it’s just about xenophobia, saying it’s about racism is an American misunderstanding.” It is about racism AND xenophobia. These literal fascists do not care if they’re attacking a white EU migrant or a PoC British citizen/migrant from a non-EU country. This is what brexit has encouraged and made mainstream. Disgusting and inexcusable by any reasoning.
