Rob Davis takes on myths about Gypsies

U.K. artist Rob Davis traveled to Russia last year at the invitation of the Respect Project to talk about comics and human rights and then create a small comic about Gypsies to be distributed to Russian children. As Davis says on his blog, “I’m not great at black and white politicking,” and that’s a good thing; far from being preachy, his comic addresses the stereotypes and the real experiences of Gypsies (including himself) and, in his words, “left all the thinking to the reader.” It’s poetic and heartbreaking at the same time, and well worth a look.

This is good. From what I understand the Roma are one of the few minorities that still have open prejudice against them in Europe. I believe in Italy there was a recent plan to relocate them by force.
