the blond haired girl among the Roma people

From Richard:  "The racism of this article, about the discovery of a young, blond haired girl among the Roma, is striking, especially given the violent activities of the fascistic Golden Dawn against the Roma, immigrants and leftists.
The authorities find a young blond girl among the Roma and it is suddenly a big deal?  It brings to mind how abductions of blond girls in the US receive massive media coverage while other ones, particularly ones involving children of color, don't.  Note that the reporter implies that the Roma couple involved must have done something wrong without any evidence.  Nary a reference to police and Golden Dawn violence against the Roma.  The article could have easily been written as a propaganda piece by Golden Dawn."
