And this whole time we thought education was the key.
Usually when discussing racism pundits like to claim that education, economic prosperity, and promotion of multi-cultural values are important factors in curbing hate crimes. A Russian mayor feels a new step must be taken though.
Mayor Igor Shpektor believes in legalising the world’s oldest profession in order to curb violence. In statement he had this to say:
“Legalising prostitution would give men an opportunity within the law to address their emotions sexually with a provided service rather than expressing them in the form of xenophobia and extremism.”
You hear that people? All you need to do to curb people’s violent tendencies is hookers.
