Hundreds of gypsy children are "back to the copper harvest""

www.elmundotoday.com/2013/09/cientos-de-ninos- ...

Children go back to school at these dates. Taking profit of this idea, the online newspaper "El Mundo Today" (a humour newspaper) published an article making fun about Roma children and supporting then the stereotypes about this community in Spain. The title of the article makes a game of words to make fun about the question (copper is "cobre" in spanish and school is "cole" quite similar). It says that "gypsy children are going back to the recollection of copper instead of the school. The article provoqued a lot of comments, among them a lot of hate speech. It demonstrates that fun can provoque also hate.
