One of the most iconic photos of American workers is not what it seems

One of the most iconic photos of American workers is not what it seems But “Lunch atop a Skyscraper,” which was taken during the Great Depression, has come to represent the country's resilience, especially on Labor Day.

Tell Us About It . Representatives Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez of New York, Rashida Tlaib of Michigan and Ayanna S. Pressley of Massachusetts testifying before I am a Latina who was born in California and have been told to “ go back ” — I’m not sure to where — more times than I can remember.

I was already a US citizen by then. In college, a professor of international relations once asked me in class where I was from. Once I told him, he said that I should go back to Pakistan once I am done studying so I can fix my country . He said it was a global problem that people like me didn't go back

In March 2017, our colleagues at HuffPost US collaborated with the nonprofit news company ProPublica to help create a database of hate incidents. This stemmed from concern that President Trump’s ascension to power was emboldening bigots to spread hatred in the streets of their country.

So I was kindly told to go back to my country and stop bothering them. That was for the first time in my life, I’ve faced racism for real. Like Philip Klossner I am a white male, unlike him I have been told to go back to my own country . I am originally from England and here legally (Now a US citizen but a

For me personally, as a white European, I was only told to go home once in the eight years I lived there. He started loudly objecting about foreigners coming to China to take their women. We rolled our eyes and probably gave him dirty looks and he leapt up and started shrieking at me to go back

It’s a depressingly familiar picture for those of us on the other side of the Atlantic. Like the US, the UK is in the midst of a growing populist movement and hate crime incidents are on the rise.

After the Brexit referendum result in 2017, the number of hate crimes recorded by police surged to be 29% higher than the previous year. That remains, to date, the biggest increase ever recorded.

The latest statistics also show that hate crime figures have more than doubled in the past five years. Police in England and Wales recorded a 17% rise in incidents with three quarters – 71,251 – recorded as race hate crimes.

In total, there were 94,098 offences. Home Office data shows religious hate crime saw the sharpest rise, with a 40% increase from 5,949 incidents in 2016/17 to 8,336 in 2017/18.

9 players who've been far better for their country than clubs

9 players who've been far better for their country than clubs 9 players who've been far better for their country than clubs The obvious one. Poldi might not have been a total failure for Bayern Munich and Arsenal – far from it. He's also a local legend at Cologne, the club that nurtured him. And yet, judging by his club career, he most definitely doesn't deserve to be considered one of the best German players in history. That's not what the stats show, however. The versatile forward won 130 caps for Germany, putting him third in their all-time rankings – just behind Lothar Matthaus and Miroslav Klose.

If we look back at its history, we will see that there were several foreign communities living in Moscow on a permanent basis. We all know about German people 'Doctor Who' has been an important part of popular culture for over half a century now. The show is limitless, filled with possibility: you can go to

I thought I was going to be returned to Sudan.” After Ms. Omer was released she said she felt like one of the lucky ones. “ It was going to be really perfect,” Danielle Drake, a community relations manager for US Together, told the newspaper. “I can’t even imagine how the family feels right now.”

Last year, the government’s counter-terrorism community strand, Prevent, revealed a rise of 36% in people suspected of being influenced by far-right rhetoric.

Far-right groups have become more visible and better understood, and we have seen the toxic narrative of ‘victim-building’ allied to anti-Muslim and anti-migrant rhetoric. Global movements, rooted in the online world, have established and emboldened far-right networks across many different countries.

This increasing prevalence of hate crime is something that HuffPost UK has extensively reported on,  from a Muslim woman having her hijab grabbed in Oxford Street, abuse on Ryanair flight, in which an elderly black woman was verbally abused by a white man to ’no blacks’ being spray-painted on the door of a Salford family.

And many people of colour feel that the discrimination goes to the highest levels of our society – the Windrush Scandal saw dozens of black British people of Caribbean and African descent living in this country suddenly stripped of their right to be here, essentially criminalised and told to ‘go back to where they came from’ by the state.

An underpopulated region in Italy is offering to pay people $27,500 to move into its ghost towns

Some Filipino-American workers were told they would be arrested if they did not speak English and were told to go back to the Philippines. New York University, one of the largest private universities in the country , agreed to pay 0,000 to settle a race and national origin harassment and retaliation

Democratic and Republican lawmakers are condemning the "send her back " chant that erupted during President Trump’s rally in North Carolina this week.

During Theresa May’s tenure as Home Secretary, in a bid to crack down on immigration, the words ‘go home’ were literally printed on the side of vans, deployed up and down the country as part of the ‘hostile environment policy’ against migrants in the Home Office.

Last month, President Trump’s used that very same phrase against four BAME US congresswomen – all of whom are American. His ongoing anti-migrant stance has been well documented; mere months ago he ran Facebook ads stoking xenophobia.

New Prime Minister Boris Johnson has also fanned flames of bigotry with his comments about black people, Muslims and migrants.

In both the US and UK, we know that to be a migrant or visible minority means to automatically be under scrutiny when it comes one’s immigration status.

And, yet, in the UK it isn’t always as plain as being told to ‘go back home’. Often, the inference that non-white people don’t belong in this country is more subtle. For example many, including this reporter, can attest to being asked“where are you from? [...] no, where are you really from?” sometimes by a seemingly well-intended questioner.

Don’t COP out on climate, conference hosts told

Don’t COP out on climate, conference hosts told Scotland and the UK should not yet be boasting about their “world-leading” action to save the planet after Glasgow was selected as the venue for next year’s prestigious United Nations climate change conference, environmentalists are warning. © Provided by Johnston Publishing Ltd On winning the bid to stage the summit, international development secretary Alok Sharma said the decision was “testimony to the UK’s leading role in the global fight against climate change”.

He told then he was unhappy that they had left him out of the team COMPLAINED He. left out of the team. Naomi is the only person who wants to go to the cinema tonight. Olivia has told me she wants to escape to a hot country this summer. In class you have to do precisely what teacher tell you .

They were told to " Go back to Vietnam and stay out of America." And don't even think about telling me that not all Christians are fundamentalists because I know already. Yes, we do share some struggles like not trying to humiliate ourselves and our families but there are particular struggles

Despite the veneer of British politeness with which the question is often posed, it still perpetuates the notion that Britain is only home for white people of English heritage. And the growing frequency of this question, this ‘othering’ of certain members of our society, paints a bleak picture of just how much the threat of nationalism looms in the lives of British people of colour.

We want to join our US colleagues in ensuring this shift is documented and reported, and that the experiences of people who are subjected to these questions are written about.

If you have been told to “go back to where you came from,” or words to that effect,  or you’ve witnessed such an incident, we would appreciate you telling us about it via the form below. For now, because we need to give some focus to this project, we are looking for incidents that occurred between 23 June 2016 and June 15, 2019.

Through collaborating with HuffPost US and Canada, we at HuffPost UK want to clearly reflect the breadth of rising fascism in our countries and re-emphasise, as ever with our reporting, that this must be addressed.

Please include your contact information, so a reporter can follow up with you to investigate the incident.

The form is not a report to any police force or government agency.
