Let me first start off with that some of you guys might notice that I make a few "damn gypsy" jokes time to time but I just joke around with it but something that come across me this a few weeks ago about gypsies. I have noticed that a lot of Irish and other people hate Gypsies for some reason? can someone inform me what is this about and how did it start?
#3
People assume that gypsies steal anything that isn'tn nailed down in your garden, that they sleep with their siblings and are dirty. Not sure why Irish in particular hate them

I'm Irish and I don't hate gypsies.

As a teacher, I hate the way they fight to get their kids into schools and then move away for 6 months and expect their kids to walk straight back into the classroom whenever they decide to return having missed huuuuge chunks of the curriculum.

And they're not Irish Gypsies, they're 'Travellers'.

I love hanging with pikeys. They have everything together.

A lot of them steal, and for some reason I don't know, are quite dirty. Apparently some of the kids, with really dirty hands, put their [unsanitary] hands into Pick 'n' Mix and nick the food [my mum used to work in Asda a long time ago].

I've never really been near them, and the settlements I've seen are out of the way and rather tidy/neat.

I have no idea. I'm Canadian so I don't know what Irish or English people call them over seas.

Thats two words I thought I'd never hear to describe travellers

Also their average life-span is around 40

I don't like them much based on what I've heard.

They call themselves travellers but their caravans don't even move(Bit of an Armstrong and Miller reference there).

Haven't had any experience really, but at a camp site near Scarborough a bunch of chavs tried to nick the bikes off the back of our camper van. I guess they're pikeys. The site was sh*t and dirty because of them anyway.

This.

"Liberal" and "modern-thinking" guys will come in to this thread and will call everyone racist from their safe homes.

Well, come to Hungary, or any other central/east-european country and spend a week in one of the awful lot of little towns where the locals are living in fear and the police is useless.

If i envy one thing from America, it is their police.

Ah, Travellers.

There are loads round here, the ones I have come across are usually loud and aggressive. There were twin boys in our school, both were badly behaved, but one was actually quite decent to me.

I can't hate them, one is marrying into my family.

I only hate them because they never give their tears and have yard sales with stuff that isn't theirs.

The Irish trravellers are drug dealing scum. EVERYONE hates them. For good reason too.
What?

It can go either way with pikeys. In my experience there just as likely to buy me a pint or smash the pub up..

All you haters can go have a wank as far as I'm concerned with your generalizations and such...Might as well make a thread about blacks and you can all talk about how they're negative or whatever.

And you can go have a wank as far as the 'haters' are concerned. Bad experiences usually equals bad impressions, equaling negative views on people.

Question. Out of all of the things you could of used as a example, why did you choose black people?

EDIT: I don't hear much complains about them because from mine and other peoples experiences, they are productive members of society. That's just my two cents.

Its easily the most divisive analogy to be perfectly honest. We recognize the atrocities in mistreatment of blacks, so by using that as a reminder I can better show the similarities between both.

Holy shit, Gypsies are a race of people? I just thought they were freeloaders who avoided taxes by joyfully singing their folky tunes...

Well, you learn something new everyday.
#32
Because they're a wandering race of freeloaders who pretty much turn any town they show up in to ****.
#33
had to comment. gypsie is too nice a name to be given to a traveller. they are thieves and gangsters. a few years back , a mate of mine was walking through a field (shortcut home) when travellers started to chase him. they eventually caught him and robbed his new runners . like come on, ffs fecking knackers eh !!!

Gypsies aren't even a race. Black folks are.

That to me doesn't measure up. Majority of Gypsies are known for stealing and stuff. That isn't stereotype but the truth but on the other hand, black people aren't known for stealing and traveling place to place for months on hand. Last time I check there was Black History Month and other African decent celebrations for black people. That to me shows that they have done something productive for society. This is like putting Gold fish and mammals in the same category.


BTW, you shouldn't be offend because there are different types of gypsies. Indigenous Norwegian Travellers , Scottish Travellers, Iran Gypsies, and etc.

As long as Gypsies obey the law and pay the same taxes as everyone else Im fine with them. You can't generalise any group and just say "argh all gypsies are evil criminals".

On the other hand im a city boy with no first hand experience. Nearly all my friends who live in the country can tell a number of horror stories about theft, smashed pubs, assaults, killing of livestock, etc..

I think he was referring to the likes of the Romani gypsies, who don't exactly have a pretty past, if I remember rightly.

And they try and sell you carpets/fireplaces from the back of their vans. I lived in Laois for 7 years so I know what the knackers are like.

Sisters boyfriend asked what happened...they were fighting over a packet of ****ing tayto crisps..... (TRUE STORY)

Oh and Oxegen was packed with gypsies when i was trying to watch the bands. I say burn them all!
