Reader feedback: Change is needed

Society must wage war against racism, say activists By Martina Pisárová, Vol 8, No 41, Oct 28 - Nov 3

I think that things are happening a little too fast in Slovakia. Ten years ago there were hardly any skinheads in the country. Now communism has fallen and Czechoslovakia has split up. I think all these political and economic changes contributed to this surge of racism. Many other nations have had decades to find ways to deal with these elements in their societies. Changes are needed in the way the police handle these cases and the public must become more tolerant of people of different races. Racism must not be tolerated.
