Why You Should Stop Using the Word "Gypsy"

You may know them as "gypsies", but their real name is the Roma people. And believe it or not, they are from India.

    आप क्यों सिटी मनुष्य उल्लेख क्यों नहीं करते हैं?????? सिटी मनुष्य जर्मनी में सबसे पुराने भारतीय है| हम सिटी और इन रोमा मनुष्य दोनों को अंग्रेज़ी में जिप्सी कहा जाता है। किन्तु सिटी रोमा नहीं है। इतहस बताते है कि हम सिटी सिंधी प्राइवसी के है। ,इंदिरा गांधी की बदौलत की आजकल रोमा एक गण्यता प्राप्त भारतीय अल्पमत है, सिटी नहीं 😒 world sindhi congress से भी नहीं मिली हैं। Very sad to be not recognized by our ancient countries Pakistan or India just bcz our Name is Not Roma , and we are the lost children of Raja Dahar. So sad plz recognize all of us and by the way you use Photos of Sinti people and relable us falsely with the Name Roma without to mention us even one time. And more than 500 000 Up to 1.5 Million Sinti and Roma have been murdered during the Nazi Regime

    Why this is in Brut? When someone of Indian origin settled down in Europe then they became Europeans and they're no longer Indian. If you say that they're Indian then what about these kashmiri Muslims who migrate some hundred years ago grew their population and replaced the original Hindu inhabitants? What would you call them?

    Such a fake info. Roma ppl did not migrate. They were taken as slaves by so called Peaceful invaders during their attacks and then sold as slaves in persian, turk and European markets
