There is even Wiki article about this kind of wall
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Roma_wall

Bsht...
My family owns a small garden with small cottage. It is in Bratislava in district, where lot of homeless move around. Since we have bought it, the cottage has been robed many times by them. Thus my parents have decided to build up a wall. No robbery since that.

So what is the difference between my case and case if they had been Roma? Would I have been considered as a racist?

What's is wrong on preserving my own property? Especially when it is constantly damaged by other (regardless of nationality, ethnicity or religiosity) people?

I only posted the articles, didn't issue any opinions. I think I stated my point of view regarding these things in the posts before. I'm waiting for the "Easter Europeans are racists" post though

Some of them surely are. But making an issue of those walls is nothing than pretending at least minimal activity by those NGOs.


Let's imagine I have bought a house with a yard. Now I've got two neighbors - first one is annoyingly social (always wants to have some parties, always minds my bussiness etc.) and the second one is a bit lazy and always walks across my yard to reduce time taking to reach the bus stop. Both are the same nationality, ethnicity, sexual-orientation and religiosity as me. I'd prefer to have more privacy, thus I've decided to erect a wall and change my locks. Everything is alright.

And now pretend one of them, or better both, are Roma. Regardless I have taken an action because of their particular behaviour (and not nationality) I would be marked as the racist by those NGOs.

According to them, as I have Roma people as neighbours, I should tear down all walls, unlock and open all my doors and write a sign above the entrance "Dear Roma neighbours, welcome. You can take everything from my house. Don't bother to asking me at all. Best wishes".

Perhaps, this behaviour would be anti-racist.

Ljubljana, Predjamski grad, Bled, Kranjska Gora plus Trieste which is not in Slovenia, but not so far away... This wasn't my first time in Slovenia, and I liked it as always.
