Brexit: A New Generation of Extremists

My First Encounter With Post-Brexit Racism

Throughout the campaigning period leading up to the June 23rd vote, it became fairly obvious that racial tensions were increasing, and immigrants were becoming walking targets of an unprecedented number of hate-crimes.

June 2016, Cambridge

Shortly after the Referendum results were announced I found myself making the most of a British sunny day. In that particular afternoon I decided to head over to Cambridge’s local skatepark, which is located in the centre of the city at the Jesus Green park, right alongside the cooling presence of the flowing river Cam.

The Aftermath

On the bus ride back home, away from all distractions, I had some time to process what just happened for the first time.
