Who's discriminating against who?

    Traditionally, members of the travelling community, owing to their customs and the manner in which they fail to integrate with typical Irish society, have consequently been dealt their fair share of abuse and discrimination. I'm aware of the fact that my following statement might draw a bit of flak but I simply feel as if there are a range of situations in which our laws and guidelines, rather than discriminate against the travellers, discriminate against the general population.

    I think that the law enforcers, schoolteachers, and members of the public sector in general, are too afraid to trigger the "traveller victim mentality" and instead afford favourable treatment to them in their respective disciplines.

    Because they're afraid of being called 'racists'. Yes, racists. By a community that is the same ethnicity as them.

    That and the break-ins.

    This isn't really a Political thread or up to the forum standard so I am closing it.

    We sat again for an hour and a half discussing maps and figures and always getting back to that most damnable creation of the perverted ingenuity of man - the County of Tyrone.
