Thread Name: BS: Traveller Discrimination in the USA
Subject: RE: Traveller Discrimination in the USA
Here in the UK we have both Romany and Travellers. Romany/true gypsies are believed to the descendants of Indian travelling musicians, and speak a language related to Hindi.

Many travellers are not Romany but Irish 'tinkers', who seem to have the right to come to the UK, be provided at our expense with council-run sites and cash benefits, and then terrorise those who are subsidising them.
