Where is the Roma Obama?

The conservative daily Magyar Nemzet reflects on what Barack Obama's election means for the Roma minority in Hungary: "Following the election of Obama to US president a Hungarian opinion research institute carried out a provocative survey asking Hungarians whether they would like to see a member of the Roma minority as prime minister. The question was poorly formulated. It leaves the majority no way out. For all the latter has seen is that since the political change of 1989/90 the Roma policy has only worsened the situation of the Roma, pushed the country's crime rate to an intolerable level and made normal coexistence between the majority society and the Roma minority a sheer impossibility. Meanwhile among the Roma, instead of producing people like Attila Lakatos [the 'Roma chief' of Borsod-Abaúj-Zemplén county in north-eastern Hungaria] it has aided opportunistic and corrupt politicians."
