Why Is Xenophobia Still An Acceptable Form Of Bigotry?

There are genuine, reasonable grievances to be had by people in this country regarding their standard of living. But aiming ire at immigrants rather than the powerful individuals and forces responsible for these predicaments is prejudiced and unproductive. Houses aren’t affordable because homeowners, who vote, would see a big depletion in their net worth if prices dropped. Labour intensive workers are unemployed because the government is not sufficiently reinvesting the benefits of globalisation and automation in retraining schemes. The NHS is creaking because a larger, older, fatter, population is hideously expensive to treat. All of these problems are caused, exacerbated and unsolved because of British people and British governments.
