Yes, they are believed to have migrated from India/Pakistan millia (millia or centuries? - honest asking here, for not read of "when they were believed to have migrated into Europe, and as one that values education, if you know the timeline, i welcome being educated on it) ago. I would assume someone by now - 40 yrs later or so - may have had an interest and funds to do a few 10's or 100's to DNA tests to confirm - but know the Roma are poor and lack a Lobby in thier intere$t - so maybe no tests have been made to confirm said theory.RCSaunders wrote: ↑Mon Jun 29, 2020 3:56 amI'm glad you mentioned the Roma (gypsies) which have sadly been neglected and are still persecuted in many parts of Europe, and their entire history is mostly unknown to most. As far as I know, the are Arian and originally from Northern India which explains their unique language and culture. People who are different and independent are always hated.gaffo wrote: ↑Sun Jun 28, 2020 10:25 pm Thanks for reply Sir, and you and i fully argee - esp "get out while you can" - per Germany in the early 30's - Jew/and others Gypies died too (we always forget about then - they do not have their own AIPAC so are forgotten sadly) - had 4-6 yrs to get out (the smart ones (assuming they the ability to get a visa - to so cost more money than most Gypsies had, so were fucked - but ya if you had the funds to get out when you could, a wise person would (and many did)).
per Ruwanda, well...........that whole shit-show happened so fast (2- months or so) - most there was fucked before they saw what was happening (imo).
per "the collective", i affirm this and i get the impression you do not? ie. I support "The collective" mindset if it is in support of a good society, i.e. like the "Western societies" - which requires an informed public with a civic mindset that challenges authority as legitmate over thugger authority.
sadly i fear most Americans (note sure about Canucks/Brits/etc..) seem to have lost both a sense of the "collective" - via Good Citizenship (which means being informed, and caring about the society that live in and a will to make sure it remains a good society) - verses and "i got mine, me, me, and me, I'm ok, so i do not care if my society goes to shit because i can just "get out of here" when the shit hits the fan.
so a applaud your individualism mindset - I too am an Individualist (Liberal Libertarian in fact) - but also do not think "all men should be an island", but be an individual in a society that affirms your rights as a person, while supporting/working to make the collective society you live in good/better than it was.
a theory i see no reason to not think valid personally.
thanks for reply and you being informed about the Roma.
