“White terrorists” have been around for millenia, starting with all those who opposed the Roman Empire (including those who inhabited the British Isles), the American revolutionaries, the Bolsheviks,the Stern Gang, the IRA, the Bader-Meinhoff Group,the UVF (and the media, if you look at the archives, were certainly not reticent about Loyalist and Republican violence) etc.,
There is indeed “a clear us and them mentality”. Haven’t you noticed the way passengers on a bus in, say, deepest, whitest Chelsea stiffen up when a tourist from the Middle East hops on board?Likewise on the Tube.
You can’t force people to be open-minded if they are afraid.
