Summary: Recently, 2 innocent Polish immigrants were beaten by 6 English boys in London. The boys targeted these men after hearing them speak Polish while eating dinner. When they attacked, they shouted racial slurs. These 6 boys are just a few of the many people in England who have hostile feelings toward immigrants. Following Britain's exit from the European Union, xenophobia was revealed throughout the country. Some of these xenophobic people think immigrants are people "coming from the sewer." Though many people have since tried to make immigrants feel safe, it is attacks such as these that reveal the violence towards the immigrants.
Connection: This situation is similar to the group of Chinese immigrants that was beaten in the river by the group of white boys. This also connects because the views that the native people have on the immigrants are similar. The natives then thought of the immigrants as "garbage," and now they are thought of as "coming from the sewer."
Questions: Why do you think Brexit has opened up the opportunity for people to be more xenophobic? How will this change in the future?
