A member of a people that arrived in Europe in migrations from northern India and egypt around the 14th century, now also living in North America and Australia. Many Gypsy groups have preserved elements of their traditional culture, including an itinerant existence and the Romany language. And as described above their name has been shortened and cropped down to gypsy and that 'little egypt' is now turkey ... etc etc.... but I know from Experience being half French & half Greek, i spent a lot of time in europe France in particular... and i can remember listening to these gypsies jamming out on the street until all hours of the night, and as a kid I would just sit, watch and listen intranced by the music.... I was in heaven, always happy music even on a sad song.... ironicly enough I have heard peoples misfortunes, being robbed, and assaulted, I think that Marvin Gaye said it best "Nothing from nothing leaves nothing so you had to do something.." because I've eaten dinner with the same paople who robbed you.... Sat and listened to their guitars cry, laugh , and sing...... Pick up a Gypsy Kings album.... along with some books on european culture.... Turn of the TV and READ!!!!....
My example of this music i speak of is the GYPSY KINGS.... south of france!! WHAT UP!!! I SEE YOU!!!
The revolution will not be televised!!

(Let's clear up a little ignorance, shall we?)

noun- 1. a person of Romani descent. The Roma never referred to themselves as gypsies; this is actually a misnomer, in the same way that Columbus saw the Native Americas and mistakenly called them Indian. The name gypsy comes from Latin-speakers who thought they fit the dark-skinned idea of Egyptians. True romani are not thieves or social scum, but have been prosecuted for centuries as such. In fact, during the Holocaust, they were exterminated in the same way that Slavs & Jews were. Still, for what ever reason, the stigmas and stereotypes still exist. Real roma reside in many countries such as England, Spain, Italy, and some eastern bloc countries. The only reason why so many Romani live in ghettos is because of overt racism. Because they have been persecuted for so long, there aren't any roma rights groups, and as such, the cycle of poverty persists.

2. The other group called 'gypsy' aren't gypsies at all. They are actually 'Irish Travellers' and thought of as an ethnic group in the UK, though the Irish government doesn't consider them as such. They are known for being lazy, disgusting, inbred thieves who resort to all types of faggotry in order make cash. Their cunt activities include but are not limited to: theft- (car, shoe, clothing, misc); tarmacking one's driveway for some unknown and probably retarded reason, breaking & entering the residences of retired old people, and much more. Biologists believe that these so called gypsies scent mark and will attack anyone who does not smell as putrid as they do. The natural enemy of the pikey is taxes- so much as mentioning the dreaded word will send them running away in hordes, not to mention soiling their already questionable pants. Typical pikey attire includes cheap shirts, track suits, stolen trainers, and whatever they can steal off someones back, regardless if it fits or not. They lack a language and instead, communicate through a series of guttural snorts, snarls, and spits that is produced by grinding the English language down to the gritty dregs and adding a dollop of mutilated Irish. Avoid at all costs. The only effective way to get rid of a pikey infestation is to hose down the grotty little creatures with soap, mouthwash, holy water and force them to get a job.

verb- To steal or in any other way, behave like a 'gypsy pike'

adjective- indicative of lecherous traits; prone to theft and often precedding the word 'traveller' and synonymous with 'scum'
That gypsy pike stole my lawn chair!
Have a looka at that gypsy broad- shes got more rings than she does fingers!
The Kalderash clan from romania are a productive, hard working family of respected blacksmiths- not the filth they're portrayed as!

The Romani people, commonly called Gypsies are an ethnic group of people originally from India.
They have faced persecution discrimination and genocidal policies since entering Europe in the early 1100's or so.
They have been denied their traditional means of livelihood and then are condemned for surviving.
Even today they are subjected to pograms across Eastern Europe and forced deportations from Western Europe.

I am appalled by the virulent racism evidenced on this site.
It's interesting that the site rejects inside jokes yets allows this murderous slander of an entire group of people.
I am appalled and outraged by the virulent racism shown in most of these submissions.
A Gypsy is a member of an ethnic group of people.

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.

An ethnic group of people that are severely misunderstood.
Although most ignorant people will claim that they are thieves and scoundrels, they are simply human being who are trying to live honest lives. Don't blame the entire Romany community for the mistakes of a couple of fools. Please and Thank you.
A gypsy (Rom) is a nice, kind nice people, just like everyone else.

The MOST awesome beings on the planet earth. They began to populate around 6000 years ago. The first gypsy's name was Pavel Tincu(not a friend). He was actually the man who started the spread of mankind. He has helped to spread chains of gypsy clans around the world. Gypsy's are the only beings on Earth that are able to challenge Chuck Norris. Gypsy's live for approximately 9000 years. Gypsy's can only be killed by another gypsy's. They have the ability to travel through dimensions and alter the time line. They have the ability to steal any item, idea, or ability from any being on this planet. Because the original gypsy Pavel has mastered the power far better then any other he has stolen the day may 32 from they 3ed dimension and brought it back to ours. So the government has lied to you there is actually 366 days in a year. Gypsy's eat a non meat based products and normally consume herbal products. Though 100% gypsy's are all powerful 50% gypsy's still have much power of their own. They are able to do most things 100%'s are able just at a lower scale.
Some more famous Gypsy's are....
Chuck Norris
Bill Clinton
Neo
Ana Nichole smith
