Letter to the Editor

Dear Sir,

I want to say thanks to you for your excellent coverage of the situation between Hungarians and Slovaks [Vol. 3, No. 22] and also the articles about Gypsies and Slovaks [Vol.3, No. 21]. I especially appreciated the article you had that expressed the point of view of Gypsies concerning their situation.

When we have read Slovak publications or watched TV about the Gypsies, the interviews have always been with Slovaks expressing their point of view - and when they have written about the Gypsy point of view it has been with the intention of shedding a very negative light on their point of view.

Prejudice happens most often when one group of people has a fear of another based on exagerated misinformation - which usually is intentionally disseminated - and then it has a life of its own. You have done a good job of helping inform people. Too bad that your newspaper isn't also in Slovak.

You have remained quite objective in all of your writings, and as a result, we have complete confidence in your reliability. Keep up the good work.

Bill Baker, Košice
