    This post referendum racism is absolutely disgusting. It really has allowed the xenophobes to come out of hiding.

    Brexit didn't cause racism- but it is allowing the racists to quite shockingly come out of the woodwork, feeling confident in their casual racism.

    Hopefully the presentation of this systemic problem in our society will catalyse much needed education and awareness which will lead to the reduction of it overall.

    Racism is never good but establishing its incidence and realising it sorely needs attention is a good thing.

    An analogy would be like that of discovering a cancer- it's much better to realise it exists then it is to let it continue unchecked until it is out of control.

    Not just from Leave campaigners. Not defending either though. Both are wrong, but both are minority cases. If we take all the Polish out of this country then some industries will be certain to fall i.e. construction.

    I do worry that the Brexit vote means the gloves are off for many of Britain's xenophobes. No more will they hide behind their mask of English politeness.

    That's a Sikh. Ignorant, illiterate, racist ***** are targetting all nin white people. It's like the leave EU win has been accepted to be freely allowing racists to say, attack, scare ethnic communities. It's ****ing crazy as Americans attacking Sikhs for being Muslims due to similar beard & turban appearances.


    :rolleyes:

    I've seen people saying mean things about leave and remain. There's no denying that.

    This isn't about Brexiters vs remainers. It's about the rise in racial abuse, as a Brexiter you'd want to stop these people giving Brexiters a bad name.

    And I do apologise for any unreasonable abuse you have received, this just highlights how divided the nation is, we just need to unite and solve this messy situation.

    I second this, I've been campaigning for Brexit since Feb, almost every young Remain supporter has labelled me and others a racist, or bigot, or fascist in their responses, even though immigration is just one of many reasons to vote leave. They are not the angels they like to think themselves as.

    Correct, I don't see the problem in Polish people, many Polish men work in construction, doing the jobs the younger Brits don't want to, they are also very hardworking. You can't just take them out and expect everything to be the same. I'm all for leave but the people leaving these posters are making matters worse.
