Ever since Ive been studying my Romanian heritage and history Ive found that Hungarians, most notably in recent times, have something against Romania and its inhabitants. For starters, they deny that the Romanians (notably the northern Romanians) are the descendants of the Daci and/or select families being related to the Huns. The Hungarians impose that the Magyar tribe they descend from either made the Daci completely leave the area that is mostly modern Romania or that they were completely gone by the time they arrived, despite much strong arguements against that view. They also claim that only they can be the descendants of the Huns, hence the "Hun" in Hungary. They have also caused enough conflict due to their loss of Transylvania to Romania for extremist groups in Romania to devote their cause against the Hungarians. I think this despise for the Romanians that Hungarians have is so deeply rooted that its become genetic. I have a Hungarian-American friend who said propmtly "f*** Romanians" when he found that I am indeed a Romanian-American. Bulgarians also seem to have a thing against us...

I find this post astounding. I am Hungarian-American and as long as I've been living I was taught that Romania was as good as if not the same as Hungarian. Granted, much of that may have been because of Nadia Commenici but let's fact it, they are a few miles apart and the lines have been redrawn many times. I have NEVER in all my experience with Hungarians seen any bias or discrimination towards Romanians. Where are you seeing this? I can only be the judge from what I've seen in Maryland (US), Georgia (US), Delaware US), Florida (US) and Budapest Hungary.
