To this day, I still can't quite work out what was going to through her head when she started with that thing.I do know she's right wing and very Christian. And patriotic in the fake way like it's typical from right wing Spain.
Also, what attitude does the majority of Romanians have regarding the Roma people? The few German speakers left? The Hungarian speakers?
Racism isn't only about skin colour, I'd say that it's even more about culture, language and arbitrarily defined groups.

The Asian (South East Asia and Middle East) immigrants and the poorer Slavs are stashed away in small rooms within their workplaces. So when you ask a Cypriot if they mind a neighbour from a different race, British is the most different race they can imagine.
