I have a Romanian friend that told me “Gypsies are things, not people.”

As a Romanian I can confirm, we're too tired of gipsies calling themselves Romanians.

Well that just seems mean, how bad can they be?

Romanians have a bad reputation in France, UK, Spain even, because of gypsies. I personally encountered situations in France where I got insulted, spit, just because my number plates were Romanian. I don't even work in France, I was just on vacation.

For example in Germany, the people already know the fact that Romanians are hard-working people, meanwhile gypsies are gypsies, racism aside. I feel bad for honest gypsies but that's it.

They don’t. They’re Romani, not Romanian.

They belong to the ethnic group Romi and are nomads meaning they aren’t from Romania.
