    I am simply saying that my experiences with "traveller" communities is similar to Adverse's.
    We had a traveller community down the road from us in Mansfield, TX.

    And unfortunately some of the stereotypes turned out to be true.

    No. Stereotypes often have a grain of truth, which is what makes them stereotypes to begin with.
    Every kid in the Remington Ranch neighborhood and beyond knew to stay away from Flying L Lane for a reason.
    Every adult in the neighborhood and every Mansfield cop knew that that area was the first place to look if your tools got stolen from your work truck.

    When an elementary school finally was built down the street, the owners of the Texan RV Ranch were given an ultimatum to either close down entirely or get the travellers out of there and they chose the second option.

    Sad but true, gypsy values are indeed parasitic values, because living as a parasite is at the core of those values.
    Gypsies are often "romanticized" in popular culture. Here in the United States we're even producing reality TV programs that make gypsies appear to be noble and "misunderstood".

    Sorry but customs that encourage dropping out of school and maintaining illiteracy for women, and sneer at concepts like private property are not noble, and they are understood perfectly.

    I am not entirely sure that one can draw a direct comparison between gypsies and sovereign citizens but the two groups certainly share some common ground.
    there are many different groups of Gypsies . but when it comes to Afro - Americans, Gypsies , South Africa , USA pop- culture produces very much misleading images.

    i´d recommend this film when it comes to Rumanian Gypsies history

    ps do you think WW2 experiences are relevant here ?

    Making folks aware is not equivalent to your apologia.


    There is no difference between supporting a racist and being one.

    Echo's of 1939. Some things never change it seems.

    For todays's Fascists here in the US, it's Muslims and brown people.
