    Dear Ruth
    We must continue to examined topic that make intolerance among the people.
    This is evidence that world is on the edge of the catastrophe.
    The tragedy is more by the fact that this act of racism happened in UK country which is so loudly in polemics about democracy and justice. This is evidence that UK government work so little on people education. Who knows what is the driver’s society and educational origin. Mature and stable country there is no this type of problem.
    People must react.
    Public also.
    Journalists before all.
