Gypsies are disliked for their culture, supposedly because of the way they are raised they are considered with no morals, like that for them being thieves, lying or kidnapping and selling kids is a fine way of living, my mother once when she was young had a bad experience with gypsies, she was alone walking by the road and a car with gypsies appeared, a woman invited my mother to enter the car telling her that she just wanted to read her hands, but my mother started running in the opposite direction to the woods.
A stereotype of a gypsy scene would gypsy working on the street playing with cards or some kind of game, who defies people who walk by the street to play against him for money, and the gypsi winning always (cheating) , and also stealling this guy´s wallet while the guy plays.
Of course it is a stereotype and I guess there are many good honest gypsies, I dont know them much, the last time I saw a gypsy was in mcdonalds 2 years ago, there are not many in Argentina, that is just what is always said of them, people with little kids when they see gypsies in the street always say to the kids, hold my hand.

Mediterranean-Alpine-Dinaric-Nordic-Baltic (+Uralic) suffice for Europe as descriptive terms.
there where many jusitications for "hating" the jews and all of them came from religous leaders.
Don't you realize this is a bigoted thing to say? You're telling me there was no secular European nobility who encouraged/participated in anti-Jewish acts for their own, non-religious reasons? No competitions with the rising Christian mercantile class over economic power? Read a book!
