"I think there is some evidence to say that not all Leavers are racist (xenophobic) but all racists are Leavers.
As Richard Pryor once joked, "I don't think all Italians are in the Mafia..... but everyone in the Mafia is Italian."
But there is a huge streak of xenophobia within the Brexit movement. It's hard to deny when you have Leave.eu just on Tuesday saying, "We didn't win two world wars just to be bossed around by a Kraut.", in reference to Angela Merkel. If that's what they're saying on the official posters, imagine what they're saying behind closed doors.
Could you imagine if some pro-EU group came out with a poster that called the British Rosbifs or Tommies? Nigel Farage would be swinging from the rafters over it, going absolutely berserk.
I'm certainly not saying that every Brexiteer is a xenophobe - there are different reasons why people voted to leave - but to say it's not present in the 17.4 million is quite a claim.
Is it racist to believe that the country"s citizens should have priority? If they don't what is the point of citizenship?
Laws of supply and demand dictate that if there are far more applicants than jobs the pay goes down; the reverse of course is if there are more jobs that people the pay goes up. British Citizens who have wives, children, families and mortgages cannot live on the same money as foreigners (single but grouped together to pay costs); economic fact.
What about the community life that used to exist, all being diluted. People do become resentful when their historical community is lost.
Britain does need immigrants but the immigrants (who intend to reside here permanently) need to integrate into British society, British society should be in no way obligated to adapt to immigrants.
So while some leavers (some remainers also) are xenophobic they are an insignificant minority. AND wagging your finger and screaming racist at people with genuine concerns will create silent resentment and the Elites will not see events coming such as ..... BREXIT."
