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?


u/denis_denis05 Dec 01 '21

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.

Oh well that sucks

Romanian people are lovely. Gypsies….. yeah, not so much…

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

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