I found this on youtube about nomadic gypsies in Romania:

Nice way of life, even if I am sure it's not as easy as it seems original.gif If there is no electricity or running water I have big problems. I think we are in a technology trap compared to them

This was my favourite picture... from this romantic revisionist viewpoint of the gypsy community.

I knew of two people who had to park their work landrover just outside a gypsy camp, these people had to investigate some abnormality within an electricity cable.  They said that they parked up and before they had even got out of the vehicle, gypsy kids were on top of the landrover, taking stuff off the top no.gif

Another group of gypsies go to the pub nearby where I go, they had a system whereby the gypsy girls would chat up some unsuspecting male and when they got him outside, their blokes would come along and beat up the man.

A lot of gypsies are ok, but some of them are unorthodox and need to learn social etiquette.

Any of the following constitutes unacceptable behaviour:3a. Racism or hatred: Do not post racist or hate-driven material or views which express hatred towards or discriminate against any specific race, religion, country, gender, individual or group
no.gif Did either of you read the forum rules?

I could just as easily say 'all residential home-owners are dirty', it wouldn't be true, but it is the same type of generalisation. hmm.gif

Did you watch the youtube video?  no.gif
The picture I posted came from that... if you think that it paints the gypsies in a 'bad light' have a word with the op..
Or are you suggesting the Op is racist for starting a thread about Gypsies?
