Shame of racism.

I GREW up in Glasgow, so I was sad to read in your paper that racism towards the English is on the increase in Scotland.

Many English people visit relatives in Scotland or go there for holidays but reports like this could make them think twice.

Mrs P. O'Connor, Blackpool I KNOW two wrongs don't make a right but let's not pretend that English people don't abuse Scots and this racism is a one-way thing.

As a kid, I went to Alton Towers wearing my Scotland football top, only to have a gang of English teens shout: "Burn that top off."

I've also been called a sweaty sock (Jock) and a "fat Scotch p***k".
