Speed Reading — the Burka - Level 0 — 100 wpm 

This is the text (if you need help).

The UK's ex-Foreign Minister made comments about women wearing the burka. He said women in burkas "look like letter boxes" and "look like a bank robber". He also said women who wore burkas "look absolutely ridiculous". Johnson said full-face veils should not be banned in the UK.

The UK's prime minister asked Johnson to apologize. She said some of the language Boris used offended people. A senior British politician asked Mr Johnson to resign. Other politicians said Johnson's comments were Islamophobic, racist and a hate crime. They say he knew his comments would offend Muslims.

Back to the burka lesson.
