Imran Khan, non-cricketer, suspected hipster and the human rights lawyer who represented Stephen Lawrence‘s family sez:

On racism in Ireland:
“I found it difficult to believe that a seemingly modern, reformed country such as Ireland was still apparently living in the Dark Ages when it comes to issues of race.”

On Travellers:

The State has “effectively institutionally criminalised” this section of society by introducing the Criminal Justice (Public Order) Act 1994, which strengthened anti-trespass laws.

On non-Irish nationals:

The power of gardaí or immigration officials to stop and demand the production of an identity document from a non-Irish national at any time would be viewed as “institutional racism”.
