And then there are other matters...like rights for the Roma.
According to local web site iDNES.cz, a Prague language school came up with the inventive idea of dressing up a crew of Roma construction workers in bright yellow T-shirts that said: "I should have studied harder." The construction crew got beers and cigarettes and agreed to pose for photographs.
Everyone at the language school thought that was very funny. It wasn't until a Roma rights group weighed in, joined by some passers-by and the head of a school that trains manual workers -- that they began to reconsider.
Call it progress.
