The Windrush scandal, along with the Black Lives Matter movement have both altered the perceptions of the colonial English "mother country."  

Windrush refers to the name of the ship that took Caribbean migrants from nation states like Jamaica, Antigua, Trinidad & Tobago from 1948-1971, to ease the labor shortage, in Britain after WWII. Britain through a public policy of making the U.K. a 'hostile immigration' environment to illegal immigrants, confused the Windrush generation with being 'illegal'. Undocumented does not mean illegal. That's what the British governement found out. But the cost of another white supremacy policy leaves Black people in the dust.
