Often, many groups are lumped together into the classification of "Gypsy." The Romani people can include ethnic groups who are spread out all over the world, according to Open Society Foundations.
The travelers of Ireland are not Roma, but they are considered Gypsies by many.
The Romani people faced discrimination because of their dark skin and were once enslaved by Europeans.
Anthropological and DNA evidence has since put the factual history of the “gypsies” to rest, but the public has been somewhat slow to follow.
In this culture girls are not considered to be indecent when they show off their skin and wear flashy outfits.Common references like “Gypsy” are considered extremely derogatory and are never used by the Romani to refer to themselves.
