first of all i was upset to read of what other people have wrote about gypsies. that is your image of a gypsy and there way of life but its not like that. gypsies are not treated fairly as for the publicity they get, its all negative.
anyway being a gypsy im sure i would know what the word is more than someone who doesnt share that respect.
a gypsy is a blood line. its not to do with the way you look or anything like that it runs through your blood, like if someone is spanish, french etc.
some gypsies travel, others dont and have adjusted to the modern way of living. they travel with family and close friends which is why they come across in large groups. they travel in caravans usually but years ago gypsies travelled in wagons with horses. alot of gypsies are disrespected in many different ways, so some choose to rebel against law and feel why should we respect those who dont respect us. if gypsies where given a fair chance then maybe people could see how friendly and giving these people are. most gypsies make a living of there own, like dealing.. years ago gypsy men dealt horses and a few other things. things have changed alot over the years for gypsies, although most gypsy women stay at home and look after the home, children etc. i personally have had many people disrespect me for who i am, for know apparent reason so sometimes i do feel like fuck it, why should i treat people nicely when all i get is shit. although some people do not look at you as scum and what they...
A member of a people that arrived in Europe in migrations from northern India and egypt around the 14th century, now also living in North America and Australia. Many Gypsy groups have preserved elements of their traditional culture, including an itinerant existence and the Romany language. And as described above their name has been shortened and cropped down to gypsy and that 'little egypt' is now turkey ... etc etc.... but I know from Experience being half French & half Greek, i spent a lot of time in europe France in particular... and i can remember listening to these gypsies jamming out on the street until all hours of the night, and as a kid I would just sit, watch and listen intranced by the music.... I was in heaven, always happy music even on a sad song.... ironicly enough I have heard peoples misfortunes, being robbed, and assaulted, I think that Marvin Gaye said it best "Nothing from nothing leaves nothing so you had to do something.." because I've eaten dinner with the same paople who robbed you.... Sat and listened to their guitars cry, laugh , and sing...... Pick up a Gypsy Kings album.... along with some books on european culture.... Turn of the TV and READ!!!!....
My example of this music i speak of is the GYPSY KINGS.... south of france!! WHAT UP!!! I SEE YOU!!!
The revolution will not be televised!!

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.
An ethnic group of people that are severely misunderstood.
Although most ignorant people will claim that they are thieves and scoundrels, they are simply human being who are trying to live honest lives. Don't blame the entire Romany community for the mistakes of a couple of fools. Please and Thank you.
A gypsy (Rom) is a nice, kind nice people, just like everyone else.

noun- 1. a person of Romani descent. The Roma never referred to themselves as gypsies; this is actually a misnomer, in the same way that Columbus saw the Native Americas and mistakenly called them Indian. The name gypsy comes from Latin-speakers who thought they fit the dark-skinned idea of Egyptians. True romani are not thieves or social scum, but have been prosecuted for centuries as such. In fact, during the Holocaust, they were exterminated in the same way that Slavs & Jews were. Still, for what ever reason, the stigmas and stereotypes still exist. Real roma reside in many countries such as England, Spain, Italy, and some eastern bloc countries. The only reason why so many Romani live in ghettos is because of overt racism. Because they have been persecuted for so long, there aren't any roma rights groups, and as such, the cycle of poverty persists.
2. The other group called 'gypsy' aren't gypsies at all. They are actually 'Irish Travellers' and thought of as an ethnic group in the UK, though the Irish government doesn't consider them as such. They are known for being lazy, disgusting, inbred thieves who resort to all types of faggotry in order make cash. Their cunt activities include but are not limited to: theft- (car, shoe, clothing, misc); tarmacking one's driveway for some unknown and probably retarded reason, breaking & entering the residences of retired old people, and much more. Biologists believe that these so ca...
The word "gypsy" can be used in anyway, whether to express frustration at a person, as an adjective, and as noun. The people group of gypsy decent are known for being shifty thieves who in fact steal anything not bolted down at any time and place. They also have a habit of being inbred, smelly, shabby, and like to shrink heads.
Dude, you are such a fucking gypsy, you owe me twenty bucks and you stole my jeans you piece of shit!
