Romanian = Romani = gypsies
Invaders of Europe and now the US, Romanian gypsies have caused lots of problems over time. I'm not racist and now is not the time to change that. But "Bloodline", an episode from the fourth series of Criminal Minds, made me sick.
When I went to France back in 2003, I met a french girl that I had been talking online with for 4 years. When I went to meet her mother, she was suprised my skin wasn't darker. She didn't say that to my face, but that really doesn't matter.
I have an idea of how Romanian people are perceived as gypsies all over Europe, but seeing this in an episode of an american show made me realise there is no point in fighting it: it's gone global. India has Bollywood and hard working people that offer interesting opportunities for companies wanting cheap labor, while Romania is a source for thieves and killers.
