Re: Bill Cosby, Slovak-style, By Martina Jurinová, Sep 6 - 12, Vol 10, No 34

I applaud this idea [for a Roma Bill Cosby]. This issue of prejudice was very well incorporated into the follow-up of a classic Czech TV series, "Nemocnica na kraji mesta" (literal translation: Hospital at the edge of the town). A "white" man fell in love with a nurse of Roma origin, and both families faced their prejudices. In the end it all worked well.
