Brit and US Racism Is Shaping Our World


rac·ism
noun
  1. the belief that all members of each race possess characteristics or abilities specific to that race, especially so as to distinguish it as inferior or superior to another race or races.
    • prejudice, discrimination, or antagonism directed against someone of a different race based on the belief that one's own race is superior.
      "a program to combat racism"
      synonyms:racial discrimination, racialism, racial prejudice, xenophobiachauvinismbigotry,casteism
      "Aborigines are the main victims of racism in Australia"


    If you have time for a few examples of international racism from two countries with majority white populations, give this piece a full viewing.

    England is awash in overt acts of racism and anti-multi culturalism that recently led to an insane vote to extract Britain from the European Union. England has been at the heart of the Union since the late 1940s and was a leading proponent of renaming the union from the European Economic Community to the European Union. Anti-multi culturalism, bigotry, and racism is manifesting in every corner of the United States and will impact the General /eelctiosn this fall.

    Emotional rhetoric, nefarious campaigning and what some in the country call "legal Immigration" is showing an ugly side. Social ideology and paradigms which manifest as racism, bigotry and hatred also prevalent in the United States. 

    The example below is classic. A non-Anglo appearing man on a bus was accosted and harassed by a band of young Brits. In fact, the man may appear to some to be of Persian or Arabic ancestry. He is a person who served in the US armed forces and may have a long history of life in Britain. A history which may have spanned the lives of the young British racists.
