Why is Brexit termed "blackness"?
I don't see it as blackness at all.
There is no way on this Earth power & privilege, which includes most well-heeled writers and commenters, will ever figure out what is going on, much less do something about it.
It is "Let them eat cake" syndrome all over again - hierarchy out of touch - as indeed all hierarchies must be - like a law of Nautre.
Truly it has been said:
'Only Nature can qualify a man for knowledge'.
It is why the nomadic tribes living in small groups were egalitarian, or at least as egalitarian as it is possible to be. A matter of intimate and daily contact with the natural world for survival - necessity really is the only really good reason for doing things.
And it is why the most 'in touch' members of 'well-heeled' society' are physical scientists - or at least quite a few of them.
But even they are insulated from the 'madding crowd' - and so really there is only collapse to save us.
And I mean that, for our current course is predictable enough - environmental Armageddon followed and or accompanied by societal collapse, war, possibly nuclear, and descent into a living hell - very possibly resulting in the extinction of our species and and the complete oblivion which extinction implies.
Joseph Tainter pointed out in his book "The Collapse of Complex Societies" that collapse need not signify 'the end', but rather a return to some form of normalcy - a more understandable world at human scale.
If the powers that be in the United States of America are so obtuse as to allow Clinton to run, I sincerely hope that Trump wins and wins big, precipitating an earlier collapse than if the dead as a doornail Democratic Party takes power again.
Your very own nineteenth century jurist Lysander Spooner made the transition from constitutional lawyer to individual anarchist, and this I think is what we all need to become.
As Lincoln pointed out in his First Inaugural Address, if majority rule is not working, only despotism and anarchy remain as alternatives.
I choose anarchy - or perhaps we need another word, as anarchy implies disorder.
I know, lets call it democracy, the Apache way. (see "Life Among the Apache", by John C. Cremony.
