Stop the race-ism

Sir -- Every week when I purchase the Sunday Independent, I usually read the Business supplement first. Why? Well, because I think it is informative and well written.

However, I was quite annoyed this week when I read the "Make Me Richer!" section.

The last item referred to car insurance and Roisin Burke wrote "you'll still get insurance prices that reward you for not being a boy racer from Donegal". This is very careless journalism and this short statement is both ageist and sexist.
