Brexit: the myth of a racist surge

The denigration of the white working class is the real prejudice of our age.

According to the Institute of Race Relations (IRR), the EU referendum result has ‘taken the shame out of racism’. To confirm this assertion, the IRR has been busy appealing to the public to send it reports of racist incidents. London mayor Sadiq Khan clearly shares the IRR’s concern. A few days after the referendum, he said: ‘I’ve asked our police to be extra vigilant for any rise in cases of hate crime and I’m calling on all Londoners to pull together.’ In turn, the Metropolitan Police have added apparent substance to the fears of Khan and the IRR. Between 24 June, the day the referendum result was revealed, and 2 July, the Met received 599 allegations of hate crime, a rise of more than 50 per cent on the weekly average.

    That’s funny, because for the last several years, I thought that Europe could USE a good racist surge.

    The left’s denigration of working class people outside government unions is not restricted to whites. All who see through their “marxist get on with the revolution” bullshit are lumped into the nonperson class.

    A paki Muslim mayor of the city that was the center of Western civilization a century ago is the real hate crime. If someonene didn’t hate Londoners this would never have happened.
