Philippinesball, gypsies come from India, so you're kinda related wink
Was that Lapu-Lapu a gypsy or what?
avatar
Yes, they do come from India but Romania in the Countryball world has the stereotype of being mistaken as a Gypsy because of its high number of Gypsy population and also often mistaken: Romani = Romanian.

As for Lapu Lapu possibly having gypsy heritage it's still unknown but in my assumption is that Lapu Lapu is purely Austronesian with Islam heritage or traditions (not quiet sure if he's a gypsy, because a lot of traders not only Indians had been in the Philippines first as traders than the Europeans) and as for the Filipinos, well I can say that some of us can have gypsy heritage, or maybe even mixtures of many since the Philippines is a melting pot of races (Indians, Chinese, Spanish, etc.) even before

The biggest Gypsy population is in USA... and there is a higher number of Gypsies in Turkey and Spain than in Romania, have a look here: 
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Romani_people

The mistake Romani=Romanian is used by dumb people to show their ignorance or hate versus the Romanians. By that measure, Romani=Rome so all Latins are Gypsy?
avatar
Nope, I'm not saying that all Latins are Gypsy. What I'm saying here is that Romanians are often mistaken for Romanis and vice versa because of only the name

Romania, in the Polandball universe, became the center of Gypsy stereotypes because of his name even though he doesn't have the largest Gypsy population. But don't worry, they're all just jokes since Polandball pokes at national stereotypes
avatar
That blog makes a crappy statement: "Romania is Romani's people homeland". This is bullshit, there are more Gypsies in Turkey, who brought them from India to Europe btw
avatar
Anyways, I find it funny and ironic that a Filipino makes Gypsy jokes about other people, when Filipinos are Indo-Malays, therefore closely related to Indians, a people to which Gypsies also belong smile

Are you really taking the Gypsyball-Romaniaball stereotype and jokes too seriously?

I've been in Polandball for a long time now so I know how these comics work. If so you're offended, maybe Polandball isn't made for you since Polandball/Countryballs pokes at national stereotypes and not only Romania's and it's kinda like tradition now especially on reddit where majority of these comics came from. Do you know that USA is a fat and geographically-challenged-anti-commie-freedom-giving character? I don't see anyone complaining about that in polandball reddit 'cos they know its just a stereotype and stereotypes are just a thing to be laughed at and not taken seriously especially since not all stereotypes are true.

If you are indirectly violated by this comic poking at national stereotypes then I can submit your comments to the original creator of this comic selenocystein on reddit to see what his/her reaction will be or you can directly contact him/her.

Philippinesball, it may be a joke to you, but this is an ethnic slur mainly used by Romanianophobes - how about calling you Guguball,
Flipball or Indioball? Don't compare it to USA being depicted as fat and
geographically challenged, a similar "joke" would be calling USA
"Niggerball". Gypsies were slaves in Romania as black people were in
the US, so that would be similar. This is not a national stereotype, a
national stereotype is Romanians being vampires, picking fruit in the
West or eating mamaliga. Calling Romanian gypsies is fucking offensive.
And don't try to hide behind other comic creators.

Jeez those are Spanish-era period jokes but I won't mind since it's not even true. The point here child is that this site or this "comic type" you entered/reading is full of those things and you should've seen it coming and other one is did I ever said something or anything agreeing the fact that Romanians are Gypsies and vice versa? I just said they are "often mistaken" because of their almost indentical names yet unidentical (not even close) identities. I have proofread my comments and see nothing agreeing about that. Do you even know what "mistaken" means?

Let me clarify some sentences in my comment:
Romanis came from India.
Romania is a country in Europe that has a high number of gypsy population.
The two were often confused because of their names
But they were never close enough since Romanis came from India and Romanians are Europeans

I also believe you just cherry picked the sentences in the website I included since your only reaction is at the "Romania is Romani's people homeland" and not reacting at the "so is USA and Brazil. And just as much, Spain and France (which has high Romani populations too)" and "But, because of the phonetic similarities of the words Romani and Romanians the world mixes the two ethnicities together, until it’s almost impossible to convince someone of the differences. (Which is I believe is true to the ignorant mind who can't tell the difference between the two)" oh and also you said those were crappy contents (So you were saying that that content stating the complete differences between the two is bullshit?).

Oh and don't hide behind other comic creators? Lmao, you're so offended by this comic which I just shared so why not direct your complaints to the original creator instead of arguing with me who's just a sharer? Because I just share what's in there, I don't create, I just share like the admin in this site Polandball. I wonder what he'll respond if he's the one who shared this? Maybe you're just angry at me because I shared this and my deepest apologies because I never knew someone would really really get fucking offended because of a comic I just shared like how it was being done in this site.
avatar
Cool down, chico, and don't call me child because looking at your age I could be your
father (maybe I really am, who knows? tongue

I didn't get fucking offended, I was just amused by the fact that a person who's related to Indians/Gypsies would call other people "Gypsies", that's all smile I thought people posted their own cartoons on this site (including you), my apologies to you.

Nevertheless, once you share some shit, expect that people would think that you endorse it.

Cheers!

Sorry for that, it's been awhile since I got into an argument and I happened to wake up at the wrong side of the bed awhile ago.

Anyways, this is how this site works. You'll never know who owns who unless they say so or you look up in reddit. Me, I just feel like sharing anything that comes from the subreddit of polandball especially things that many users can easily understand. It's okay, I thought you were attacking me because I thought you were identifying me as a racist and hypocrite at the same time when I just shared an image out of nowhere but meh people make mistakes and it's okay but I really don't mix the two up unlike other ignorant people  cry 

Sorry for everything and best regards to Romania! Good night.
avatar
No need to apologize, everything is clear now biggrin

Romaniaball and Philippinesball can into friends cool
avatar
"Romania = Gypsies" is a classic countryball-joke. You can't just cancel it, even if you're very angry about it. 

tip: But you can explain the stereotype (without being offensive)
avatar
Just have a look above, I think I over-explained it smile
avatar
And of course I can't "cancel" it, because I can't stop ignorant people making stupid "jokes". However I can speak out and point out that a joke is funny or it's just a dumb cartoon fed by ignorance and/or hate.

avatar
Well, the way you express yourself and your "arguments" just proved my point. biggrin
avatar
These racism and ignorance excuses did annoy me :/ i'm brazilian and i live amongst a lot of stereotypes, mistakes, and racism... and what do most brazilians do about it? memes, jokes, etc. you have to learn how to laugh from this ignorance you say you hate... we joke a lot even amongst the states themselves, their accents and differences, and no one complains... this is not only about recognising that every place has its own stereotypes, but also about seeing that other cultures aren't supposed to know everything about your own... btw pnc dos boludos HU3 HU3 BR BR
