Racism in Malta
However, something good happened recently in Malta in the fight against racism. Two men that made racist comments on Facebook about a person being treated in a Maltese hospital have been taken to court and fined.
Both men were fined €3,000 and they are now known in public for holding views that the state does not find acceptable. Let's be honest, it is disgusting that these two posted comments wanting to cause the man in hospital injury - just having those thoughts, simply because the man in question is not Maltese makes me sick.
Lets hope that others see this and take a deep look at themselves - but sadly I don't think that is going to happen. At least the authorities are doing something to try and curb the hate.
