Both the I.T.s and our Highland Scot Travelling cousins are native Celts and for whatever reason separated theirselves from the settled people..The Romanis are not originally from the British Isles..And to my mind that sets them apart fron both our peoples..
My two cents

I think we're all set apart but all the same. Some for beter some for worse. One thing for sure is we are all equally disliked by settled people! Lol

I can certainly understand your egalitarian sympathies, while I might not agree with them. It's my studied opinion formed over a liretime that that retarded show Gypsy Sisters is, with exceptions about par for the Romani course, and not a oddity..Very different breed entirely.

I guess it would depend on the region that you would find them in. Certainly a different breed though. But I would say there are oddities in our own group as well. I would bet there is a large majority of English/romani that would be mortified at there portrayal of the lovely stanley sisters as well.

Alot of them arent even gypsies, Mellie the wild child is full blood romanichal, but her sister nettie is only half they have the same mother lottie who is very much a rumney woman the other girl kayla isnt gypsy at all but she married kayla the other girls brother. So is this really fair show to say that all rumneys are like this? I would say no. They found the most dysfunctional family possible and it painted us all bad. Kinda like when the guy made that book about yous guys "scam" haha im a little to young to have ever known jimmy and have never seen his sisters either but they were only half as well and that was only one family and look how that book and that 1 scam they tried to pull made everyone see yous all as thiefs. but dont even get me started on my big fat reff wedding haha cuz that show is just so fake its crazy

You strike me as younger, but to you understanding-Are all "English" Romanis?..What besides more settled blood separates the Romanichel (awhich literally means English Gypsy) from the Roma/Gypsies?..To your point about the mother being a Romani and Nettie being half. That was Crystal clear to me , she's whiter..

I would say thats all that seperates them just more settled blood and english travellers are basically in my oppinion just like all other travellers just from england instead of ireland or scotland, some like to say they are just roadys but I would call them a breed of traveller, but even most rumneys and english both call themselfs rumney but you and I both know alot of them dont have 1 drop of romani blood in them haha. Its kind of confusing and I guess thats why there are so many more surnames accepted as being rumney. I dont wanna throw out last names on here but im sure we have a few of the same in mind! Yes typing and driving is very difficult!

I honestly don't know what you're talking about. Everytime I've been there all I see are white freckled boys with ND hats on. Pretty sure they don't even know what hair gel is! Lol

O.k. I will not be as reticent then..As examples Evans, Whartons , Forrest and Turners, all claim to be "English Travellers"..But at least the 1st 3 listed there are proud Romanichel Gypsies in Great Britain..Call any of those people Romanis here andthey'd be insulted...Quite confusing..

see I have a few different breeds in me like my great great grandpa was a watson and he was cousins with a tom carroll and he married his first wife who was irish but his second wife always said she was a romanichel even though her moms last name was davis and her dads was smith lol its all confusing once breeds start mixing then you end up with cousins of all types.

I agree with part-truth from each person who has posted! I live around the Irish, and my property value has remained good, since they own nicer, well-maintained homes, and fewer fore-closures in the neighborhood. However, living close to the 26 homes they own has been interesting! The
children terrorize the neighborhood( unsupervised
in groups). They have been caught egging cars of non- Travelers, trespassing, vandalism, messing with mailboxes, resulting in many calls to police from nice citizens minding their own business. Business owners have had property damaged:cutting seat in new restaurant, taking sink off wall in Starbucks, throwing rocks at vehicles, the list goes on!

I would like to see a side by side comparison of the juvinile crimes in that area of both IT and non IT's and see what the deference is. Also The report on similar neighborhoods that do not have ITs in them. That being said, you can't discount that children of any culture should be taught respect for other peoples property.

Thank you, My Two Cents!!
Minor offenses of property damage( vandalism)
can become felonies if the damage is over $1500
in Texas, Many children are trained by their parents to respect others' property as they would want theirs respected! This is taught by parents
and if these same kids had to pay for the damages, working them off, they may learn never again!
I have been nice to Travelers, but I do not understand why targeting innocent people in the neighborhood is something to be minimized or ignored!
