Racism has become more acceptable since Brexit vote, United Nations warns

Extreme views are gaining ground in mainstream political parties, special rapporteur says.

“A Brexit-related trend that threatens racial equality in the UK has been the growth in the acceptability of explicit racial, ethnic and religious intolerance,” said E Tendayi Achiume.
