Is it a racial slur if "gypsy" isnt a race?

Just curious.

Isn't that the truth! Good grief, ...them Kardashians.......are.....a non-talented bunch of mattress backs.

So on the PC front, should I get mad and obtain a lawyer the next time I go into a store, and they have on their shelves a "hillbilly" figurine holding a shotgun with stereotypical sayings written on them?

The Redskins will become the sunburned people.
The braves will become the team with nerve.

I'm all for freedom of speech but can we please outlaw political correctness? Michelle didn't say anything wrong here even though I believe her to be an idiot extremist.

Hahaha, wow. I've heard and even used that term for years. Thing is, I had absolutely no idea it was related to the term Gypsy in any way, shape, or form! I even though it was spelled 'gipped', and might be related to the word 'tripped'. Never would have guessed it.

I think it refers to the Romani people of Indian origin.

Are you kidding me? Gypped is not a slur! If anything it's most definitely true. We all know the old legend about Gypsies. They steal anything not bolted down,on fire,or too heavy.

PLenty of Europeans have this view of Gypsies still. Thy are very disliked because they are perceived historically as thieves.
Gotta admit I was nearly robbed by them three times in Florence Italy in one day!

I had no idea that's what the word meant. I have said it my whole life.

I heard she also was watching her daughter play softball and said her daughter got beaned when she was hit by the pitch. C'mon Michelle beaned? She is obviously referring to her daughter getting hit in the kidney

Yeah it is not so much the word, but the intent behind it.

Lots of names are used to slur people.

Here is a few:

Gun owner

Oh and my personal favorit 'racist'.

There are socially acceptable slurs.

Then there are not.

Some get away with it.

Others not so much.

My what epic double standards we weave when one practices to deceive.

And that is the word of the day in politics.

Your guy is worse than 'my' guy.

Or gal in this case.
