Reader feedback: No country without discrimination

Re: Reader Feedback: "Slovakia not looking good," By Dolores Littell, Volume 8 No 32, August 26 to September 1.

Dear Kevin,

Very true. There isn't country in the world without some form of discrimination. I live in Canada and my wife is Hong Kong-Chinese. I experienced racial discrimination through her. She was mocked and insulted at her workplace numerous times. After finally quitting her job her Irish-Canadian supervisor hired two of his friends to do her job. Our daughter (eight years) has had a brush with racism already. I've found out that racial tolerance is only skin deep in Canada. People from Eastern Europe are also routinely discriminated against, mostly in the workplace.
