This was a very good read and I support all of your points, but wonder why you failed to include the browning of most European nations in the West as a catalyst for such ignorance. I know it falls into your us/them zero-sum mindset of voters theory, but the fact that both here in America, the UK, and in Europe, the Anglo/European people are rejecting their nation’s attempt to help poor Brown and African people displaced because of war. Wars stemming as far back as colonialism.

These people are voting for fantasies, put most are racist. They’ve been programmed by our national political systems or in the homes, but the end result is still the same. Racial discrimination should have also been connected to this piece, as it is a huge part of the global revolt.
