A Gypsy is a member of a racial/ethnic group known as the Romani, generally characterized by darker skin and black hair. The largest population of Gypsies now lives in Eastern Europe, however communities of Gypsies can be found in many countries around the world. They first originated in India sometime before 400 AD, and began a nomadic lifestyle that eventually took many of them to Europe. From one initial community in India they have developed into several tribes that exist from India to Spain and from Russia to Northern Africa, and each tribe consists of countless clans, which vary dramatically in culture and lifestyle depending on which tribe and clan and even family they belong to. Clans usually specialize in a single, or few trades, such as horsemanship, fishing, music, dance and entertainment, metal working, and fortune telling.
They have endured much racial discrimination in the past, which still continues today.

Alright, so all the other definitions I've seen about Gypsies are so full of shit and racist I can't believe it. Since you all see my people as "Child thieving" I'll show you what I'm hearing with another example:

Word:
Nigger

Definition:
Naturally inferior to whites and are great workers with minimal whippings needed. Niggers survive on a diet of fried chicken and water Mellon but it has been known for these savages to cook humans in a large cauldron.

This is the kind of bull shit like that I hear everywhere on the internet. There are bad Gypsies but there is also bad non-gypsies as well isn't there. I read a post about someone wanting to shoot us with a shotgun and make us eat dog shit. How can we live in a world were all people are born equal when this is how a race of people with no representatives are show. So if you want to be as racist as some people are to Gypsies then go onto a public bus and order a black man to get up and give you a seat then you will be know as a racist ass hole but call Gypsies thieves and inbred that's all just a funny joke because you all know we gypsies are all nothing but scum.
I am a Gypsy.

They are Gypsies

Gypsy-they respect their women and never hurt or abuse them and if they do there parents will hurt them! they respect others and will not burn down your house coz they feel like it! the girls arnt slag who get knocked up coz their not allowed until their married! they also love their children and look out for each other, they only fight for their rights that have been taken away from them because certain people didnt agree with their cultural background! how would you like it if WE called you?! you wouldnt, so dont call US!

A free spirit. Someone who can make friends with anyone and is the light of the party. They say what they want and do what they want. They meet their needs by any means . They are undefined people with no shame. (Not to Be confused with the derogatory term of gypsy)

Preteen children who wander around large cities and steal from stores and have no parents to speak of. They usually travel in large packs to distract people who are being stolen from, and the sheer number of them confuses people, as they all look the same. The female gypsies have long hair and earrings bigger than their heads, and wear slutty fake designer clothes that they usually stole, although they have no developed any boobs, carry huge bags (or better yet, large strollers containing their siblings) to hide things in. The male gypsies look like they need a haircut and wear crappy old graphic tees and shorts, year-round. They walk everywhere, but if caught stealing, they somehow manage to disappear at the speed of light.
Did you just see that little gypsy? She had what looked like 8 brothers and sisters with her! They just stole our entire stock of red hair dye. WHERE ARE THEIR PARENTS?!?!?!

A group of people that usually prides themselves on being "gypsys".They do have style. However they usually dont work and consistently live off of government aid. usually in city areas, they go from chicago, to vegas, to detroit and rarely befriend anyone who isnt in some way connected to their family. Steal, cheat, lie...even to one another...Think a mob movie but with fewer blondes. Vendictive and mean...but they always believe they are right.
The gypsys wouldnt accept her so they broke up.
