Of course, not all the people who voted Leave are racist. No doubt everyone who voted had their own reasons. But you cannot deny that some of the votes were the result of racist motivations, hopes that Brexit would stop immigration and that those who weren’t born on British soil would be forced to ‘go back to their own country’.
If you look through social media their are accounts of Brexit supporters taking this opportunity to air their racism now more than ever, even school children are worried about their future, being told by their peers to leave. Those who can’t identify accents have been telling the Welsh to get back to their own country.
It won’t happen everywhere, and it may be a minority of Brexit supporters, but it’s still happening.
So basically if your skin doesn’t look like milk and your accent doesn’t sound like you’ve spent the past few years rimming David Cameron, heads up now more than before.
The sheer amount of anecdotes I’ve been hearing from people who are having violent racism hurled at them in the streets now is horrific. This isn’t even the half of it. Ditto for this. Stories keep on coming, I don’t think I’ve ever been so disgusted with my country in my LIFE.
