RIGA - Racism is “not a very central problem” in Latvia, although there are some members of the public with differing views, President Egils Levits said today in an interview with the 900 Seconds news program of TV3 channel.
In his words, the problem of racism exists virtually everywhere, but in Latvia its manifestations are less severe than in countries with a history of colonialism and slavery. In Latvia, intolerance towards other races or ethnic backgrounds is mostly expressed marginally, for instance, in comments on web portals, Levits said.
