How hate festers in UK.

Due to the Liberal pragmatism that dominates the ideological field of the UK, Racism in this country becomes a much more insidious force. Due to this, bigotry and hate becomes far more institutionalised into our society. Our hate crime becomes subtle and disguised in a contradiction of ‘polite’ rhetoric. When people talk about “Britishness” rarely are they referring to the traits people in the UK hold, they are simply talking about anglo white faces. We wrap up our hate in a pretty package and call the other a foreigner or an immigrant and what we really mean is “you are not the same as I therefore you are less”. This allows us to internally accept our message of hate without feeling any of the guilt that would make us question our liberalism.
