Its not a stupid question though
Then , if it`s not a stupid question , she is not a gipsy. She`s a aromanian. Gheorge Hagi was a aromanian too. And many others.
For me this kind of ignorance makes me mad.
I can give u that , the answer that u receive from Hartson could be only offensive for romanians ( at least i was ) but i ignore it, and i can understand that u were a little confused.
Just an example , gypsies aka ( rromi ) , lives everywhere most of them lives in Central Europe and East Europe , America , etc.
Most of the people does not make the difference from a romanian to a rrom. Most of our gypsies did a lot of problems all across the Europe, and they don`t call themselfs gypsies, if u catch them stealing or begging or dunno what else , they will tell you they are romanians. For your information, they just live here, we didn`t want them before like the entire Europe don`t want them now, u ask why ? ( They don`t want to work ( most of them ( 95 % ) at least )) , they don`t want to learn a proffesion or to do something else rather than stealing , begging , or make troubles. We ( romanians ) had a lot of troubles visiting places just because we are romanians ( and i`m a proud one ), but people don`t make the difference, and really it`s not that hard , lol.
U know , gypsies live all across the world , just to make an ideea about this i give you an ideea how many are in different countries:
Brazilia 800.000 (0.41%)
Spain 650.000 (1.62%)
Bulgaria 370.908 (4,67%)
Romania 535.140 (2,46%)
Italy , France , and many other contries.
What u see there , it`s just some estimated numbers from Wikipedia about Romi , in my prediction u can add 2-5% more without beeing worried that u will do a mistake . ( a lots of them don`t have any papers ( birth certificate, ID , etc )
So just before u mention Romania when u think about gypsies , it will be a fair thing if u at least thank God that your gypsies from your country are not that bad like ours to make your nation the shame of Europe how they did with us ( Romanians from Romania ) .
