The European Commission (EC) has demanded that Slovakia's second city, Kosice, tear down a wall put up to segregate Roma - the 14th such wall in the country and the eighth built in the last four years.

My understanding is that the Roma don't assimilate and view the rest of the populace as marks to be used to the Roma's advantage. That's the way it has always been. Change will be difficult.

I think change has to come from Both sides in this. Theodore is right that many of the Roma do believe the world of non-Romas is their so-called oyster, ripe for pearls. These ancient beliefs wll not end overnight, but neither will the prejudices of non-Romas. A difficult situation to find common ground on. Thanks.

The Jewish ghetto in Warsaw started with a wall too.

It's unbelievable that Slovakia thinks it can be part of the EU and get away with this at the same time.

it is not just one wall which needs to come down.

There isn't a country in the world where one section of society does not exploit another section. Rich (including corporations) exploit the poor, men discriminate against women, religions discriminate against each other, Races discriminate against each other. There are always criminal elements in both the discriminator and those who are dicriminated against. It'a as old as the history of the human species. Unfortunately Governments exploit this to gain political advantage in the divide and rule principle. As in every society the majority will be punished for the criminality of the few. The problem will only go away with the extinction of the Human species!!
