A traveller who doesn't have a proper residence because:
#1: there homes were taken away,

or

#2:They choose to live like that.

Whoever said they are loaded, thats complete bullocks, coz if they were they would buy a house with the money.

Gypsies are cool, and aren't dirty and not all of them are Eastern Europeans.

Respect them.

1. A person of Romany descent
2. Often incorrectly used to describe the wave of thieving "Irish travellers" (also known as "pikeys", "dids" and "scum") currently sweeping the country(England), setting up their caravans illegally on public or private land (the police won't remove them either way, unless the land belongs to a judge or politition I would expect, then they won't be able to shift them to the nearest taxpayers front garden fast enough). The countryside is both their dustbin and their toilet. They refuse to pay taxes being as they move around, yet the still use the welfare and benefits system, as well as the NHS and schools, all of which are paid for by the taxpayer. Strangely enough, both the police and government seem to value these and other non-contributors much more highly than the people who pay their taxes and don't break the law.
2. Every "Gypsy" should all fuck off back to Ireland.

A 'traveller' who has no respect for authority,society,the environment, himself or his offspring. A thieving cad who steals cars, who runs into a young schoolboy whilst travelling at 60mph in a built-up area, kills him and drives on with his pals laughing in the back. Disappears into the 'travelling community' but is eventually caught and will go to jail and get the shit kicked out of him.
FACT: Gypsy travellers shield murderers!!

Forget the historical defs.

'Gypsy' is usually prefixed by 'Thieving' because that's what nearly all of them do. They are filthy, dishonest rip-off merchants, and that's just their children. They are NOT cool - at all! As in 11 above, they do indeed carry stolen gear in their Transit vans, that is when they're not hauling off monoblock/garden rubbish/gas canisters to dump anywhere and blight the environment. They also shit into poly bags,which they leave scattered around their sites. The men are lazy workers (bit of any oxymoron, that!), and they travel the country in vehicles that have forged documents, and have no insurance.
They are scum, period!
Those thieving gypsies.............

Irish gypsies are calling themselves Romany. This give true Romany folk a bad name, when most are actually hard working and honest. Irish 'travellers' are con artists, rip off merchants, blaggers, thieves, and bullies. The kids are worse than the adults!! True Romany gypsies often get the blame for being theiving pikey scum, when they havent done anything. Sadly, they're a dying breed, with most living in houses now after being attacked and persecuted. Yet the Irish are still going strong...
Irish gypsy people are scum, liars, thieves, bullies, chavs!

While normally considered a racial slur, the word "gypsy" (in the US) refers to a person of Romani heritage. As with all cultures and groups, there are good and bad. They should not all be lumped into one group.

I have met Rom that have stolen from my store, and I have met many Rom that have been wonderful, paying customers for years. You simply cannot blame an entire race of people for the misdeeds of a few. Are all whites bad? No. All blacks? No.

The Romani in the US are not ethnically similar to the "Chav" or "Travellers" in the UK. At least in the US, the Romani that I have met dress very modestly, and are not bad people. They tend to have strong family values, and they take it very seriously.
I am a Gadji (non-Rom) person, and I feel that alot of the definitions of "Gypsy" are offensive.
