There are no words for this. You wonder why we’re angry; why we won’t stand for your bullshit.
Look at this. LOOK AT THIS. A white woman attacking a Rroma mother AND HER BABY.
I’m literally crying right now, here in my chair, in the office at work. It’s something I’ve dealt with in my life more than once and something I fear every day. I don’t even “look” particularly Rroma now.
I just don’t know how you can sit there, in your privilege and comfort and deny this happens.
Vo! Gaadži dukhavel pe do čhajorjake dake!!!

“I was walking down Moore Street Dublin on a Sunday when I was passed by a family of Romany Gypsies and then I heard behind me a bunch of Irish teenage girls shouting abuse at them and thinking they were very funny.
They then picked up old fruit from the stalls and were throwing this at the Romany Gypsies, this escalated as the Gypsies responded verbally. Then further as one teenage girl found old stallholders chair and ran after the Gypsies hitting the woman pictured from behind. The woman tries to protect her baby wrapped in her arm in blankets”
