Thought my last post was a bit hyperbolic?

CONTENT WARNING: racist abuse.

Just one of many such incidents being reported all over Britain. I wondered about showing this in case it further legitimizes abuse. But I also thought it was important to see what’s now going on.

I’d also like to praise the bystanders, who managed to summon the wherewithal to speak up. It’s not easy to know what to do in the shock of the moment, especially with the threat of physical violence hanging over the scene. Well done for saying something.

EDITED TO ADD: the video has now been removed as the three people featured in it have been arrested.
