How do you know? I am quite interested, becaue the racits EE Czech republic police is not allowed to notice the ethnicity of the perpetrators down, because that would be racists, unlike it is done in many advanced democratic countries.

The ones that robbed me in Italy, as well as the ones that robbed my colleague in Austria are Romanian white boys. A TV program followed Romanian skimmers around undercover, and they were white. Don't blame your criminals on gibsies...

I was just sincerely intersted whether there exists a statistic in the countries like UK, NL, France of the criminals based on their ethnicity. Thats all. If it does. Isn't it racists? I believe in the US such statistic exists.

P.S. This is what you sound like, but the roles are reserved.

Not all gypsies have dark skin. The Sinti for example are tendentially white. They own in general the wander-circuses and somehow they try to integrate themselves with their work. Some of them also emerged and became famous (In Italy everybody know the Orfei Circus). Roma gypsies instead......

Let's learn from more developed parts of the world how to make Roma people integrated.

Over 100 Romanian Gypsies leave N. Ireland after attacks
JournalNow Staff | Posted: Wednesday, June 24, 2009 1:00 am

DUBLIN -- More than 100 Romanian Gypsies who suffered racist attacks and intimidation in Belfast are being flown back home at taxpayer expense, the Northern Ireland government said yesterday.
Northern Ireland housing minister Margaret Ritchie said that 25 of the 117 Romanians targeted by stone-throwing extremists have already been flown back to Romania, and most of the rest were expected to leave soon. All were having their temporary housing and flights paid by the government's Housing Executive.
She said that only 14 planned to stay in Belfast, where Eastern European immigrants housed in the poorest Protestant districts frequently have suffered hostility ranging from bigoted graffiti to broken windows.
She said that the anti-Romanian violence demonstrated that parts of Northern Ireland still view other ethnic groups with hatred, despite more than 10 years of peacemaking between the territory's British Protestant majority and its Irish Catholic minority.
----------------

Let's back to roads

However, let me ask a question first, question to RoadUk. You probably know this part of Greater London, don't you? It's Southall, very nice place with an exotic touch.
I am only wondering why and where (I actually know where - as far away as possible) all white people moved from this nice, inhabited by 'well integrated' minority, area?

A map


And the road:

LOL
Point taken.
I have driven through that High Street a few times, and it is actually a very nice area, but it is like being in a foreign country. These are one of the better areas. You should try Bradford, Luton or Leicester, which makes me miss home whenever I am there. But these minorities (!) are ever so friendly...

But people are free to stick together, and the authorities give them everything they need. A bit too much in my opinion at times...

I'll get back to the roads too... Literally. In about an hour maybe I'll drive back some 250 kms from Veliko Tarnovo in central northern Bulgaria to Sofia, which I drove in the opposite direction this morning.

So greetings from Veliko Tarnovo in this sunny and hot day here, surprising weather for early November, as I drank a coffee in a T-shirt outside, when one would think that you need a pullover and a jacket.

So, I was just watching TV (well, fooling around on the computer with the TV on, not actually looking at the TV) when I heard a bit of a sizzling noise, looked up and saw that the picture had contracted and the color was off.... When I went to change the channel, thinking it was just that one, I noticed a bit of smoke coming out of the top of the set.

I got it the heck out of my apartment; it is currently sitting in my back garden. I guess tomorrow, it'll go in the trash. Good thing I was home!

On line to price them first. Of course, if it means I miss the last few days of this campaign it may be just as well....

It was not a little box with a red X in it. :-)

It was a Panasonic I'd owned since about 1990 and never had any trouble with; knew I'd have to replace it eventually....

But the sizzling and the smoke was a dramatic way to go. (The smell's only starting to fade now.)

So now you will get a smart tv, with flat-screen, YouTube, Facebook, SSC, USB and options to have sex with it...

Oh but a tv is soooo much more then just a picture these days... Don't tell me you just want to watch programmes on it... It's like putting a cd on to listen to music. Although, I remember the days when I wanted to change channels: I actually had to get up out of my chair and walk over all the way to the tv set...

That would be all well and good if I were prepared for this and had had time to research what's out there. In other words, if I had a working TV but was ready to spend money on a new one, I'd spend some time on that and then do it. Right now, I just want to restore the status quo ante with a minimum of effort, in a minimum of time, and for a minimum of money.

And people invented the first "remote control" - a long stick with which they could press buttons on the tv-set, without getting up from the chair or sofa...
