    Ohhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh it is now clear why people consider you a certified Brit. Ahaha.
    I play up to it. I understand if you're dark and have an accent you may not be treated as having the same cultural capital and a swarthy aristocratic figure, but that's no excuse to speak about the Roma with coldness.

    I was joking btw. Ofc you don't have to look like people from that nation to be considered part of it.

    I really don't think Michiyo and I have spoken about them with coldness and tbh I haven't even thought about their skin color or their accents because I don't think these characteristics should matter at all. :lol:

    Actually, I am basing it on sociology and culture. You will know that if you open a sociology book and read the chapters on culture and nationality. :laugh:

    It is not a superstition, but a fact, as gypsies have darker skin, hair, and eye colour than Romanians and do have a different appearance in general. In consequence, they could not have originated from Romania or any other East European country.
    Found the lying racist.

    The first post refers to MY ARGUMENT THAT NOT EVERYONE WHO HAS A CERTAIN CITIZENSHIP CAN BE CONSIDERED OF THAT NATIONALITY.

    The second post refers to THE ORIGIN OF GYPSIES.

    Also, in your second post, the first post is by EC and the second one is by me. As lovely as EC is, EC and I are different people, thank you very much.

    Please, for the love of God, try to find some good arguments.

    If you feel this is an attack on you: Please, do not take it as so. We are merely discussing what makes a person a nationality right now.

    Thank you for saying that. :hugs: I was going to answer to that part myself, but sadly, I had no idea what to say that would not be considered rude :rofl:

    Holding citizenship of a country makes you a national of that country. Don't add your own requirements to the word :lol:

    That's (sort of) true for people who have acquired citizenship of a new country later in life, but we're talking about Roma people who have always lived in Romania, who went to Romanian schools, speak Romanian, have Romanian birth certificates and Romanian passports, so of course they're Romanian. Is that really so difficult to understand?

    But what if their culture, norms, and values are completely against that of the country they are in? What if they do not consider themselves to be so? I wish it was that simple, but in this context, it is not.

    Most of them haven't always lived in Romania, didn't go to school at all and don't even speak the language.

    Tell that to all the immigrants who are considered to be of their home country instead of British after getting their British citizenship.

    Oh this is like telling transgender people that their birth certificate, which states their gender identity, defines them entirely so: "Please don't add your own requirements into the world."

    It does. You will always be the gender you are born as. Changing your appearance doesn't change your DNA and chromosomes.
