And to complete the thought - Roma/Gypsy is an ethnicity, genetically, historically, and linguistically - not a lifestyle. 

If others wish to fight for a lifestyle - they can. My concern is with the treatment of those who share my ethnicity, but are not as lucky to be as American, white looking, and educated as I am...

 

At 12:43pm on July 15, 2014, Liam S. said…

Correct - the persecution comes against the ethnicity. What is commonly associated with the Roma - the migratory/transient behavior is often not really by choice, but often a result of local pressures (law, persecution) and what work is available to those who are often prevented from assimilating (if they choose to) because of their ethnicity. E.g. we usually moved because we had to - not because we wanted to. 

At 9:42pm on July 14, 2014, Liam S. said…

Hey there Karl - Roma rights is in short, human rights - but especially as they apply to the Roma minority worldwide. In many parts of Europe and Russia, we are under quite a lot of prejudice and outright discrimination, including separate schools, poor access to healthcare, limited access to running water or safe housing, as well as housing segregation, ghettos (including walls and armed guards) and race based killings and beatings. 

I work with others to try and improve things.

No worries. Easy to miss comments.

 

I THINK I heard about the mummy either on National Geographic Channel, or read about in in the magazine itself. Was a few years ago, now. But the tidbit about that pine resin stuck with me.

At 7:19pm on March 25, 2011, Jack Neulist said…

Karl, you seem to be up on your paleo-archeology. I'm having a brain fart. Didn't somebody find a mummy in Peru or Chile with resin from the south pacific used in the embalming process?

It works great for keeping lid out of dirt or from burning table top. It folds and stores nicely in oven if you make it the right size. Lodge or Camp CHef make out of heavy rod so you could actually support cast iron without feet over coals or as a lid holder.
Do you do Renesaincce fairs? I saw one in MN one time.
