There have now been a series of incidents where state workers have taken light-haired children away from their Roma parents — a witch-hunt spurred by recent events in Greece. But unlike in the past, we now have a scientific way to fight this kind of racism.
Since 5-year old Maria was taken from a Roma couple in Greece, there have been (at least) two cases in which a child was taken away from their parents. In one case, a blonde-haired, blue-eyed girl was removed by police from her home in Dublin, Ireland. A second case involved a 2-year-old boy from a Roma family who was briefly taken away in Ireland's Westmeath County. The rationale was that these Roma families had probably kidnapped the children from white people.
