Gypsies are one of the few racial groups to which decidedly non-ethnic people can lie about belonging. Unless you count wiggers.
Gypsies are also one of the few remaining ethnic groups considered socially acceptable targets of open racism. Many a small town police blotter features the escapades of people "who appeared to be gypsies" wrangling their way into the homes of the elderly and stealing their priceless Hummel figurines.
