Since the human have existed on the land, culture has been a significant part of their life and presence. Cultures have affected the people and societies differently. There are various kinds of cultures in the world that have made the society a mix of various cultures. One of the significant and most discriminated cultures of the world is ‘Gypsy’. These people were mainly the Romani people, who are discriminated and stereotyped by the societies with the term “Gypsy”. These people are also considered as the threat to the sophisticated society because of their appearance, traditions and beliefs. These people are socially excluded, due to which Gypsies and Travelers have to face many inequalities and discriminations in the society.
Millions of these people live in United States and mainly belong to the ethnic group called “Roma”. This paper will discuss the life, culture and important aspects of Gypsies and how they are different from people of other culture.These people also have a complex set of rule for living their life. The Romani population is considered as inherently difficult due to mobility and mistrust of the government. The diverse cultural communities of the world are different from the culture and belief of the Gypsies because they significantly divide males and females, which is not found in American society. Some of the significant challenges that are being faced by the GR & T are the discriminations, stereotypes and financial restrictions. The gypsies are considered as the persecuted minority group in America. They are discriminated on the basis of their traditions and culture.
Some significant social problems are lack of education, marriages at early age and social stereotypes. Discrimination is the substantial burden in America and other countries. These people also feel stigmatized by discrimination and prejudices. Most o the Gypsy women are fortune tellers. This is the reason that people believe that Gypsy is not a culture, but just a lifestyle. Paper focused on discussing the life, culture, traditions and belief of Gypsies and Travelers, who are also called as the Romanies. Paper discussed the various aspects of their life and concludes that the status of an ‘outsider’ still sticks to these people and considered as cunning fortune tellers that make them the object of discrimination and stereotypes. These people are still marginalized in the society and require the attention of the government authorities for their better life.
