Emma Thompson says that the UK's reaction to the refugee crisis has "a lot to do with racism"



Emma Thompson spoke to BBC Newsnight's Emily Maitlis about climate change and the refugee crisis in Europe. Emma Thompson says that the UK's failure to take in its quota of refugees is shameful, going on to explain that she thinks the reaction in the UK to the crisis has "a lot to do with racism." Emma Thompson continued, "I think if these people were white Europeans that were coming from some dictatorship in Bosnia or somewhere, I think we would feel quite differently about it."
