LETTER: Sad elements of racism

In the Herald, MP Caroline Ansell emphasised that “Having concerns about immigration does not make you a racist”. The writer Will Self made a more profound observation – “Not all Brexiters are racist but all racists are Brexiters”.

Anyone listening to the man on the street comments recorded by TV reporters can have no doubt that xenophobia and elements of racism sadly contributed to Brexit support.
