Equal opportunity in education

In 2002, on my way to the United States Congress where a hearing on the education of Roma was being held, I was asked by the taxi driver where I come from and what was the purpose of my trip. I told him I was going to testify before the Congress about the problems faced by Roma in education. His reaction was, “Ah, you mean those petty thieves?” I was surprised that prejudice against Roma existed even in the United States, where they live among hundreds of other minority groups.
