They steal and sell their kids. They are stupid, ignorant, and limitless. Prejudices against the Roma people, or gypsies as they are also called, thrive all over Europe. Danish journalist Nana Toft and I lived with the Roma in one of the largest Roma ghettos in Europe on two occasions in January and May 2016. We experienced a culture, which is simultaneously loving and considerate, as well as dominated bystrict, even violent, internal social hierarchies. However, a slow rebellion is underway, lead by the young and women who are silently fighting back against the patriarchy.
