ManThatYouFear said:Correct. There is not a single decent person of Roma descent existing in the world today. I'll quit university and go steal things, since you insist. Likewise, nobody without a fixed residence is fully human.ms_sunlight said:Are you serious?.. there fucking scum, the original gypos of old no longer exist, there thieving dirty little bastards who should be ques up next to the chavs for the firing line, and for you to say its racist? your either one of them or never dealt with them.. ever.Rastien said:You know it's really racist to use terms like "pikey" and "gyppo", right?mgirl said:Very true! although it has commonly been accepted to stand for that in somerset although to be honest we have more trouble with pikeys and gypos stealing anything that isn't nailed down lolRastien said:That's actually a common misconception, the origin of the word was, (if I remember my A-level English correctly) a gypsy slang term that came into common use. The acronym thing isnt true, people have just made that up later on.
If you mean Irish travellers or Roma, say so.
And 'never dealt with them'? Who did you deal with. Because unless the Roma became a hive mind while I wasn't looking, you dealt with a group of individual assholes. Meet some pricks. Pricks belong to a group. Entire group consists only of pricks. Where the hell does the logic in that come from?
Honestly, I think a lot of the modern incarnation is tax-dodging, law-avoiding nonsense. But condemning an entire subculture or ethnic group is just ignorant and hateful. Both of which I believe are good attributes for the firing line.
