Sunday 26 June 2016 – Racist and Xenophobic abuse following Brexit is being highlighted on social media


On Facebook last night I came a cross a post that contained dozens of screen-captures of tweets and other social media posts by people who had experienced or witnessed racist and xenophobic abuse in the UK since Thursday’s referendum resulted in the country voting to leave the European Union.  For anyone who doesn’t believe that racism and xenophobia hasn’t been a major issue for many in the Leave campaign and for many of the Brexit supporters, please view these images – which I’ve added to my FLICKR site. Some truly horrific and disgusting examples of hatred on the streets of the UK.
