    Gypsies (as in Romani people, not to be confused with actual Romanians) are an ethnic group just like Jews. No offense meant to Jews by this comparison, I don't mean to imply that Jews are criminals.

    Which, again, isn't a race. Insulting the Jewish wouldn't be racist, it's merely discriminatory against the Jewish culture i.e. anti-Semitic. Same way some people like to claim that being anti-Islam would be racist, when, again, they'd be wrong in saying so because Islam is a religion and culture, not a race.

    In either case, my mother's father comes from a family of Irish gypsy heritage, so I've got a get out of jail free card on this one

    Because she wants to? Unless you're dictating to her who she can and can't see...?
