Ugly face of racism on the rise

IT WAS no surprise, but still shaming, to see damning figures that racism has been on the rise. Hop on public transport any day and you can hear the curmudgeonly whispers muttered from the corners of mouths.
At others times the vocal racism against Romanians is many decibels louder.
In recent days there have been screaming headlines in the UK that the country will be swamped by Romanian migrants as restrictions on the workers from the EU newcomers, Romania and Bulgaria, are lifted.
