Many many many of the world's sufferings can be traced directly back to the British legacy.

No less a person than Nehru clearly stated that the extent to which a region of India was poor and "backward" was directly proportionate to the amount of time that the British spent in that region.

But, hell, what are a few hundred million dead and diseased brown people right?

Britain, birthplace of bigotry. Anything you can be prejudiced against, the Brits have been prejudiced against at some point in their history. Maybe not all forms of bigotry were created there, but it's certainly thrived there.

Sadly I can't tell if you're being sincere or snarky.

But all this "anti immigrant" stuff is literally centuries old. Even in Shakespeare's day the English government was spending vast sums of money to keep "foreigners" (i.e. "non-English") out of England.

The West couches it modern racism in terms of "fighting terror" or other nonsense, but the undercurrent predates the modern era by centuries.

A little bit of both, mainly because many Brits of today attempt to have a holier than thou attitude when it comes to bigotry.

This is hardly unique.

Try talking to an ardent Zionist about (something like) Deir Yassin and you'll get variants of "there as no massacre", "it was exaggerated", or "it was in self defense, so you can't call it a massacre" etc etc etc.

Or to a hyper-patriotic American (or Canadian) about the genocide of our Native peoples, you'll hear crap like "it wasn't really genocide per se", "it was all smallpox, the British and Spanish came with puppies and flowers" etc etc etc.

Or "the natives welcomed us", "this country was a wilderness when we came here", "that's how people were in those days, you shouldn't judge us today for the actions of our ancestors", etc.
