Thank you Francis, for taking the time to offer this much-needed advice.

I’ve noticed that a lot of the discourse in the UK is very much “Oh, at least we’re not like America”, which seems to undermine our own indigenous equality movements fighting against precisely this dehumanising mindset. I guess a lot of white supremacist establishments (in Australia, for example) are able to benefit by scapegoating American race relations and ignoring their own.
