Brexit Vote Brings Openly Hostile Racial Attacks


Although Britain’s separation from the European Union hasn’t been fully put into effect yet, one thing is for sure – the campaign and voting results have brought a surge in racial attacks.

Twitter has been a hotspot for British citizens to post about their experiences:

According to US Uncut, Vote Leace, the group that helped finance Brexit, used racial tensions as part of their campaign to gain votes. Much of this was fear tactics in regards to immigrants, although many people born in the UK but from varying backgrounds have been verbally and physically attacked.

Time will tell if these new attacks are part of a continuing trend of just a reaction to the recent vote.
