Romanians, Afraid of the Returned Gipsies

One in two Romanians – more precisely 53% – are afraid of the Gipsies expected to be returned from Western European countries, reveals a survey. An exactly equal percentage of them believe that the Roma can not be integrated, because they themselves refuse to be integrated.

54 percent of the Romanians have a generally bad or very bad opinion about the Gipsies, according to the same survey, while 66 percent do not consider the word “ţigan” – Romanian for “Gipsy” – to be offensive. 58 percent of the survey’s subjects believe that the solution for the Roma is access to education.
