Xanthos (2004) writes about a form of “hidden racism” in the United Kingdom where “colourblind ideology is already deep seated”. Xanthos argues that there is an informal policy of assimilation where conforming to a White (majority culture) mainstream is the norm. This generates a “we’re all the same ethos” (para. 3) which, as Xanthos argues, makes discussion about racism very difficult to conduct. However, I would tend to argue that racism is “hidden” but not from an assimilationist point of view, which reminds me more of the French secular system but from a British multicultural perspective.
