HI, I'M ROMANIAN, NOT ROMA
The Romanian government has recently launched a media campaign to help Romanian immigrants. The ads are focussed in Italy, where discrimination against Roma from Romania has been increasing at alarming rates.
Unfortunately, however, the ads seek to distance "regular" Romanians from "those degenerate Roma".
Though the government denies this is racist, the headline of the ad campaign states
HI, I'M ROMANIAN, NOT ROMA.
By the way, oppression and prejudice against Roma in Romania is escalating also. That's amazing because the level of oppression in Romania is, and always has been very high.
By the way, the first photo is of traditional Roma women (and girl) in Romania.
The second photo is of Romanian immigrants in Spain. That's one of the photos in the HI, I'M ROMANIAN, NOT ROMA, campaign.
