Thread Name: Whistling Gypsy - prejudice?
Subject: RE: Whistling Gypsy - prejudice?
The degree of prejudice that still exists in society is hard to believe. After my wife died and I ended back on the market I went about with a Roma woman, east European, I then became aware of how she was treated and of how many people are not colour blind. Currently my companion is black (her choice of description) and again I see how we are treated, places it is better to avoid etc. It seems too easy to believe that all that disappeared years ago.
