Xenophobia and Casual Racism


#1

So the Brexit vote gave permission to the overtly racist to be … overtly racist.

That was tamped down, but now we’re seeing increasing incidents of casual racism.

This Conservative party MP for instance, who has proposed checking peoples’ teeth to determine their age.

It’s all getting obviously racist, systemic even.

I wish I could say that the lack of human empathy is shocking, but at this point, how can I say that and actually mean it.

I realized about two months ago that my computer’s dictionary had “xenophobia” as a legitimate word, but not “xenophilia”. Spell check asked if I would prefer xenophobia instead.
