  • I think that the term would be offensive to anyone. It would also be offensive for people of Romanian descent for one more reason: because it is a discriminative and offensive insult which has been used against Romani people (those who came from India). Many Romanian people (descending from the Vlachs of Romania) don't want to be taken for Romani. Sometimes, sadly, it is not only the need of respect for their own identity, but it could always be racism against the Romani. But I hope it is a small minority.
