Ever since the Brexit vote last week, there's been an increase in hate crimes against those that look foreign, this includes even those who were born and have lived their entire lives in the UK.
Many of these attacks have been directed at the Polish population, most of these crimes have involved the spreading of leaflets with xenophobic messages in Polish family's mailboxes and at schools.
But its not just the Polish that are worried but also the Scandinavians that live in England, very recently a young Swedish mother in York was told to "fuck off back to her country" by a guy when he heard her speak Swedish to her children.
A friend of hers had told a newspaper, The Local, that she was both upset and infuriated at that this sort of thing's happening in the UK and he's quite saddened and angry about all this too considering that York is supposed to be an open town where everyone's welcomed with open arms:
Many Scandinavians are at this point talking about leaving the UK for Scotland because of the growing racism as well as the uncertainty regarding their future in the country, as most should know by now, Scotland wants to stay in the EU and they are now planning on a new vote for independence and so is Ireland as well:
Now, I can't help but to be a bit worried about my big sister and her little baby boy because of all this crap, but then again, she studied self defense years ago when she still lived in Sweden and any wanker that tries to mess with her is in for one hell of a bad time.
And to be honest, I think her boyfriend isn't too happy either about this rancid behavior from these "Brits".
But I quite frankly think it was one hell of a mistake for so many people to vote leave as they only thought short term and not long term, already there's talks about foreign companies pulling out and many are either gonna have to lose their jobs or relocate to whatever new country that company moves too.
And that could very well mean that the job my big sister has, which is at the J.P. Morgan bank, could possibly move away from England because of this.
On the other hand, there's plenty of Brits that are not happy at all about all this and applications for citizenship here in Sweden is up by 500 %, about 129 or so Brits have been granted citizenship here as they no longer wish to stay in the UK and we are still for staying in the EU:
