Reader feedback: Enough anti-Slovaks

Dear Editor,

In reaction to last week's letter from Jana Jezova ["Let's have the actual text of laws," Reader Feedback, Vol.8 No.6, February 25 - March 3] I like The Slovak Spectator as well, except its anti Slovak bias as if paid by Prague or Budapest.

I have spent over 30 years of my exciting life in foreign countries (among others in what is now the Czech Republic). I have been residing here in the US for over 22 years, but I have never met any member of any nation, no matter how poor, accused of anything, to put down their own country, culture and heritage as you "Slovaks" do.

It's your choice, but why do people still claim to be "Slovak" when whatever they say is anti-Slovak and anti-Slovakia? Please rest assured that you are not alone. There is the majority of you living or working abroad (maybe that's where the Spectator gets 80% of its readers). I am and I will always be proud to be Slovak. And without claiming any bragging rights, I am fairly successful considering I came from Slovakia. I have succeeded among "the super people".

I am happy for Ms Jezova that she is now in a new, hopefully "civilised" South Africa, but please leave Slovakia alone and if possible don't come back.

We don't need people like her. There are plenty of them not only abroad but in Slovakia itself.
