Roma’s exit ‘more than racism’

BBC NEWS | Northern Ireland | Roma’s exit ‘more than racism’

This is yet another example of the acceptable face of racism displayed by the authorities and media in this country.
And as if the content of this article isn’t bad enough, it appears that it has been edited and reworded in the fine and frequent manner of the BBC; on the both BBC breakfast news and the BBC1 red-button text news at 9am this morning it was stated that the Roma believed “they were entitled to benefits”.
I find this change of wording very significant.
And also almost as disgusting as the content of the article itself.

PSNI, you’re joking, right? Right?
