Roma culture struggles in its own families...
(This is a personal post. I’m not sure about you, but this is prevalent in my family)
Most of our younger generations won’t even talk or travel to see each other.
Most of my family no longer identifies with Roma culture. We have finally established “white life”, and it’s comfortable, and we’re no longer chased from towns.
But this is really saddening.
My culture is no longer existent even in my OWN FAMILY.
My cousins have spread out, moved on.
But what they don’t realize is how much they need our family. Just as much as I need them. We had a huge family, but now it’s dwindled out of Colorado. Our home. To Washington.
Only 4 people out of 130+ that I was raised with still talk with me.
The rest have severed familial ties for the dreams of suburban living.
Nothing is okay about this.
We’ve been white washed.
