Roma expelled from Denmark
It's hard to sell a news without live pictures nowadays. Therefore newspaper Ekstra bladet presented its web users with a small video clip of a refrigerator with food leftovers inside. This not so exciting panning over shelves was attached to the story of the 23 Roma who were deported from Denmark with a two-year entry ban. Their only crime was to camp in a place where they could not camp. What sprang to the eye was the headline in the newspaper: 'Look how disgusting Gypsies are living in Amager”.
It can be fine for Extra Badet to provoke. That is probably what this newspaper is for. But it is not good to do it at the expense of Europe's most persecuted people – who are from Hungary to Italy beaten, excluded and deported. The myth of the dirty and criminal Gypsy has had terrible consequences in the history of Europe. Even Ekstra Bladet should be aware of this.
