Racism persists in EU

The European Union's rights agency says racist violence and discrimination persist across Europe.

The EU Agency for Fundamental Rights also says most members of the 27-nation bloc are not taking advantage of tough legislation to crack down on the scourge.

The report says "racism, discrimination, entrenched disadvantage, racist violence and harassment have remained a fact of life for many individuals."

It calls for sanctions tough enough to be a deterrent.

Britain and France lead a list of 9 countries credited with actively fighting racism and xenophobia. But the rights agency says a dozen EU member states issued no sanctions at all against discrimination, including the Czech Republic, Denmark and Germany.
