Peg 5 – Politics of Community Cohesion

- “Hate, it has caused a lot of problems in the world, but has not solved one yet.” - Maya Angelou

The politics of community cohesion for Blaine Robin is recognition that aspects of primordial patriotism have never dissipated from the British society. In the last decade Indigenous white British communities have reacted to what they believe is uncontrolled immigration and a threat to the British way of life. This topic has oscillated between the everyday street communities and parliamentary political parties for a number of years through the following:

  1. UK political party adopting racist campaigning (e.g years-on
  2. Street demonstrations by the English Defence League (EDL) into factual & perceived rise of Islamic extremism.
  3. The rise of popularity in left and right wing political parties whose ideas have given rise to Brexit success in 2016 European Union referendum.

Blaine Robin can provide invaluable insights into the benefits of multicultural Britain whilst recognising a polemic of “race specific” patriotism amongst working class “indigenous” communities. In addition he offers insights into the concept of “white privilege” amongst many in higher professional occupations, responsible for influencing higher financial and media discourse - who utilise forms of bias towards people of British African Caribbean descent seeking entry into those professions.
