Thread Name: BS: Traveller Discrimination in the USA
Subject: Traveller Discrimination in the USA
Most anyone who can look me in the eye and say their mom did not once loose it and swat you as Madlyne Toogood did her daughter (leaving no mark by the way...) well a lot of you would be not telling the truth. Fact is, that she is being prociscuted for the crime of being an Irish Traveller in the United States, under the feet of the Statue of Liberty after the welcome to the poor, hungry and tiered, there is a wee sign that says no dogs or Gypsies... and it is still bloody there. Call your local press and ask why in a reported child abuse case, where there was no abuse, is the news interviewing cops from fraud units? It is because after the crime of driving while Black, the next most prosicuted crime, is the crime of a Rom, or Pave or Romanichale breathing the air of a free nation. Larry
