1. Race of Romany people descendent from mainly Eastern Europe where they are despised as thieves and wastrels.

2. Non-racial group of people of no common descent who choose to live in camps, thus opting out of civilised society, yet still wanting to take part in elements such as the Welfare State. They are despised as thieves and wastrels.
We can't go to that park any more, the gypsies'll gut us and steal our money.

Don't listen to all these racist bullshit stereo types, I'm a Gypsy and I'm not a "bad" person at all, I don't steal or scam people.

There are two types of Gypsies out there, there are the ones who still live by their traditions (speak the Rom language, don't date outside their race, work as psychics, etc) and there are the ones like me who live just like everyday people work 9-5, go to church, school, etc.
Not all Gypsies are thieves and liars just like not all blacks are ghetto and dangerous, and not all white people are bisexual pedophiles.

A dirty little thief that lives in a caravan and moves from car park to car park with no aim in life whatsoever, gypsy's (A.K.A pykey gyppo) are often chavs (the scum of the earth) as they have no money and can only afford cheap sportswear.

Gypsy's are the descendants of hippies although gypsy's cannot afford weed.

Gypsy's will refuse to move off your land untill the police move them on.
A gypsy cant afford houses and don't want to pay tax.

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.

A community of people (some travel, some don't) who live separately to mainstream society that share different traditions, morals and backgrounds. I am sat in the an office now where there are three Gypsy girls who I manage on a day to day basis, I have spoken to them in depth comparing our lifestyles, values etc. I can honestly say that sone of the comments that come under this definition are disgusting and just show how ignorant and oblivious people can be. I do not know any irish gypsies socannot speak for them but I'm sure their not as bad as everyone makes out either. So let's get the facts straight.

1) Not all gypsies steal, I know a few who have respectable companies and earn a living just like everyone else (Well excluding the vast amount of non-gypsy people around the country who sit on their arse claiming benefits being lazy.

2) I am assuming a large majority of the posters are so under educated and do not follow crime statistics as theft and violence related crimes are carried out by women and men of all racial and ethnic backgrounds.

3) They are not dirty people, the ones I know are very clean, well mannered and spend their whole Sundays cleaning themselves. Also would like to add they own their properties and do not claim housing benefits as they are scared of working.

It is a form of racism and is unacceptable. In a society in this day and age you think people would be open minded but obviously not!!! Ignorance is the first sign of stupidity.
