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.
The Gypsy stole everything

A free spirit. Someone who can make friends with anyone and is the light of the party. They say what they want and do what they want. They meet their needs by any means . They are undefined people with no shame. (Not to Be confused with the derogatory term of gypsy)

Preteen children who wander around large cities and steal from stores and have no parents to speak of. They usually travel in large packs to distract people who are being stolen from, and the sheer number of them confuses people, as they all look the same. The female gypsies have long hair and earrings bigger than their heads, and wear slutty fake designer clothes that they usually stole, although they have no developed any boobs, carry huge bags (or better yet, large strollers containing their siblings) to hide things in. The male gypsies look like they need a haircut and wear crappy old graphic tees and shorts, year-round. They walk everywhere, but if caught stealing, they somehow manage to disappear at the speed of light.
Did you just see that little gypsy? She had what looked like 8 brothers and sisters with her! They just stole our entire stock of red hair dye. WHERE ARE THEIR PARENTS?!?!?!

great people who get underestimated and talked about over things that are stereo typical!
Gypsy-they respect their women and never hurt or abuse them and if they do there parents will hurt them! they respect others and will not burn down your house coz they feel like it! the girls arnt slag who get knocked up coz their not allowed until their married! they also love their children and look out for each other, they only fight for their rights that have been taken away from them because certain people didnt agree with their cultural background! how would you like it if WE called you?! you wouldnt, so dont call US!

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.

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!
